Fast, but dead 03/25/2014
Fast drive. Great when it works. No BSOD with Windows 7 64 bit doing games, editing, graphic design, and video processing, etc.
Drive died 2.5 months after using. No clue how. Computer didn't have issues, didn't do anything out of the norm. BIOS just stopped recognizing drive. Trouble shot the heck out of it ranging from BIOS settings to special programs to special hardware connections and nothing would get it to recognize. Also, the back up I made of the drive was corrupt so I lost quite a bit of information ranging from a $10,000 client project to some scripts I've written. Pretty stressful situation that cost me quite the pretty penny.
I've read up on these drives and found a pretty large group of people experiencing the same issue. Not just with Corsair but all SSD's. To me, they seem to know about the issue but released these drives anyway knowing people will lose data pretty quick. I've even talked it over with two different tech guys at Corsair and they know about the issues. So why sell the product if you know it is going to break almost immediately? I got the RMA process going, but I'm a bit frustrated over the fact I now have to pay for shipping, then I paid new price for basically a refurbished drive I'll be getting here shortly. Didn't give me a discount or pay for shipping or even offer a data recovery reimbursement plan. If it happens again, I'll be writing off SSD's, regardless of their great speed and reliability with normal operations.
