Corsair Obsidian Series 800D CC800DW Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great Product Support After Sale 04/22/2012

This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 800D CC800DW Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: All the Pros that everyone else has listed, and one more.

I have literally purchased mahy thousands of dollars of Corsair products alone and have always been pleased with the quality. Recently, the Power button on the Corsair 800D case I purchsed in August of 2010, lost its ability to spring back as the lower portion broke free from its mounting spot.

So I checked the Corsair store and saw that I could buy the entire front bezel for $45. Not wanting to pay for a complete front when I only needed a small plastic part worth $0.50 or less, I wrote to the customer support department. I got an auto reply right away, and a reply the next day from a real person.

I answered one more simple question, and they replied that same day and gave me a code so I could purchase the entire front bezel for $0.00....YEP...absolutely free.

That folks, is good customer support and an excellant customer retention strategy.

I highly recommend Corsair products!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: And this is truly a really killer case.

SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128D/AM 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast, but they all are.

Cons: I did a fresh install of Windows 7. Loaded ok, and all that, but the drive is not recognised as an SSD by Windows, or the Magician software. Dissapointing after spending over $700.

I was going to clone the 256GB 830 drive I have over to it but it wont work. Also, both Intel and the Marvell 6gb controllers hang the 256GB drive on startup. So I resorted to the 3GB controller for smooth operation.

Other Thoughts: I'm running an Asus P9X79 Deluxe Mobo with an Intel 3960 CPU, EVGA 590 Video, Plextor BR Optical drives, and 32GB of Geil Ram. What a waste of hardware to not be able to use the 6GB controller on these SSD's. Disappointing as well is the fact that the 512 sn't even recognised as an SSD at all.
