Corsair Nova Series 2.5

2 out of 5 eggs Drive Died - No Data Recovery Possible 08/16/2011

This review is from: Corsair Nova Series 2.5" 64GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-V64GB2-BRKT

Pros: Quick. Good performance. No compatibility issues.

Cons: Drive died. Would not even be seen by a BIOS. Tried on many computers, controllers, and cables. Sudden and complete failure. It has now been over a month since the drive failed and I have still be unable to get a replacement from Corsair! (They received my drive weeks ago and are still validating that it is failed...)

Drobo BeyondRAID 4 Bay Diskless Storage Array Enclosure  - DR04DD10
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Flexibility of storage options

Cons: Slow, horrible compatibility with FW cards, abismal random access performance (with 4 7200 rpm drives, I was seeing 75IOPs at 50-100ms latency).

Support sucks and is unknowledgable and unwilling to assist.

Other Thoughts: I wish I would have never bought this product.

The flexibilty is nice, but not for the overhead imposed. Buy an eSATA external enclosure and a RAID card.
