It's very fast. Will score you a 7.9 on the windows experience index. Good storage size for an ok price.
It caused me blue screens before I updated the firmware and the firmware is not easy to update for this drive. The system setup the drive needs in order to be updated is very specific. (This is bad design in my opinion, because it really shouldn't need to be setup in such a specific manner just to update the firmware.) In some cases, if your system does not have right hardware, you may actually not be able to update the firmware yourself. In that case you would have to RMA the drive.
The tricky firmware aside. This really is a good drive. I just wish corsair cared enough to address the firmware installation issues.
