1 out of 5 eggsJUNK

This review is from: Corsair Force LX Series CSSD-F256GBLX 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: NONE

Cons: It shipped in nothing more than the factory packaging inside a bubble envelope, which I'm sure didn't provide much in the way of G-shock protection from the Postal Service handeling.

It died while creating partition table.

Other Thoughts: I was excited to get this drive, it was going to be the new home of Mint 17 on my desktop computer.

I knew there was a problem when Gparted reported it was unable to get the stats on the drive, and I was right. Partition creation failed and the drive was no longer seen by CMOS. Further attempts to boot It resulted in it not showing up in the list of available drives or just locking up the machine when trying to access CMOS.

This is my third Corsair SSD and the second one to to die within minutes of attempting installation. Two out of three drives bad, two different models purchased over a year apart, one a Neutron series and this one a Force LX, tells me Corsair's quality control is lacking or nonexistant.

I'm sending this one back for a refund and will not consider buying another Corsair drive.

4 out of 5 eggsProduct's fine - rebate iffy

This review is from: Corsair Force LX Series CSSD-F256GBLX 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, easy to set up with Corsair software.

Cons: Corsair did a lousy job with the rebate offer. The offer number provided in the PDF isn't valid. You'll have to call the rebate center customer service to get their help. Thanks, Corsair.

5 out of 5 eggsSpeedy compared to an HDD

This review is from: Corsair Force LX Series CSSD-F256GBLX 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Breathes new life into an older system. On an Asus X200CA with Celeron 1007U I can power up and be completely logged into Win8.1 in about 12 seconds, maybe faster. Everything else is snappier too.

Cons: I couldn't get Corsair's SSD Toolbox cloning software to work. It found the Corsair drive in the external drive enclosure okay. Found the Asus' HDD. Indicated both were clone-able and re-sizeable. But the "clone" button wouldn't activate and a message indicated "no drives available for cloning" or something similar. I downloaded a free cloning program, Macrium Reflect, which worked perfectly and performed the clone and resize.

1 out of 5 eggsCorsair Force - simply does not work

This review is from: Corsair Force LX Series CSSD-F256GBLX 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: There are no pros.

Cons: I cannot install Win 7 on this drive. It is not even recognized by the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive because of a few positive reviews even though I knew it wasn't top-tier quality-wise. It was intended to replace a working Hard Drive to make for a faster system. When I could not get the system to even recognize this drive, I installed a smaller other-brand drive that I had on hand just to see if I could. No problem with that at all.

I'd have returned it immediately to Newegg, but could not since I used the UPC to apply for a rebate which I never received. I give this drive 1 star for quality and Corsair 1 star for their arcane rebate polices.

It is true that you get what you pay for and it always pays to buy the best. My final advice is to avoid any and all forms of rebates.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We're sorry to hear that you're having trouble setting up your SSD. From what it sounds like you might have received a bad drive, and fortunately, we would be happy to send you a new one. If you would like a replacement, please contact us by submitting a ticket at corsair.force.com or calling us at 888-222-4346.

Thank you,

5 out of 5 eggsFast. Reliable. Corsair

This review is from: Corsair Force LX Series CSSD-F256GBLX 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Amazing SSD. Fast read/write times for the price. Reliable. Booting up in my OS is like a snap of the fingers. I can't even read the "Welcome" text or the "Shutting down" text. Definitely worth the money.

Cons: Didn't install itself

Other Thoughts: Amazing SSD for the price of $119.99 during the sale. Definitely beats out all other $200 240 GB SSD's. Great Shellshocker deal. Once again, Newegg prevails with the cheapest price!

5 out of 5 eggsFast SSD from a reliable company

This review is from: Corsair Force LX Series CSSD-F256GBLX 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Faster than my older OCZ Vertex on read (not write though,) great price and made by Corsair. I used this in my laptop which is not very powerful but it still performs like a champ. Booting into Windows and Linux in under 10 seconds.

Laptop specs: 2.3GHz Pentium b970 (sandy bridge), 4 GB RAM

Cons: It did not come with a sticker. I know this seems silly but I would liked to have had a Corsair sticker.

The warranty pamphlet was for the Asian market (I beleive this because the RMA address was not consistent with that of the one designated on the Corsair website for North America customers.)

Other Thoughts: If anyone from Corsair reads this, please send me a sticker.
