Fast! Good alternative for intel's 900p AIC 10/18/2018 1:22:53 PM

Pros: Nice design, no fancy lights but it's designed to dissipate heat to keep it cool. Its pretty fast, not quite as fast as the 900p but it's price difference justifies the small speed difference.

Cons: Not as fast as intel's 900P, which I also have but the speed difference is not noticeable unless your benchmarking and looking at numbers.

Overall Review: Great drive for a really great price.

very nice drive if you can use it 4/12/2018 5:28:40 PM

Pros: its fast

Cons: your motherboard has to have a m.2 drive slot to use a pcie drive a little redundant if you ask me lol

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Michael,

I'm not really sure what you mean by your review. Technically, the drive is attached to a bracket that fits into a PCIe slot so that you don't have to have an M.2 slot. All you need is a free PCIe slot available and you should be up and running. If you need further assistance, please contact us. Our Tech Support number is 888-222-4346 or submit a ticket at support.corsair.com.

Thank you,

Speed Demon 2/14/2018 8:10:57 AM

Pros: I love SSD's. This thing is no exception. Installing it was no problem and getting the system to recognize it was no issue either. The device is built great with a nice heatsink to keep the drive cool and performing great when being used. The solidity of this SSD is nice where you don't have to worry about any bending that may occur over time. If you have any issues, Corsair offers a great 5 year warranty! Sequential Read speeds I was getting was hitting close to 2400 MB/s and writes were around 1300 MB/s. This is awesome for anyone that has a lot of large files they want to easily access. I would recommend to those who work with video editing easily. With the nice heatsink this fits into almost any build using black as a main or off color.

Cons: I did not experience 1 issue with this device.

Overall Review: Overall a great device that I would recommend to developers or video editors that want a quality piece of hardware to add to their machine! Buy one today!

Super Fast!! 2/8/2018 6:23:36 AM

Pros: Purchased this SSD and placed in external StarTech TB31PCIEX16 Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Expansion Chassis in order to use Mac OS instead of the iMac internal spinning hard drive.......FAST!!! Running the entire operating system on this SSD via Thunderbolt cable. Consistent super fast read and write speeds even under heavy work loads including 4k video editing and large file transfers!!
Heatsink built into this SSD prevents thermal throttle slow down that occurs on similar M.2 SSD's

Cons: Price is higher per Gig vs SATA SSD's

Overall Review: Great solution to speed up computers with older spinning type conventional hard drives!!

Fast Drive, Well Built, Little Expensive 2/2/2018 6:09:01 PM

Pros: -Good heatsink for an SSD
-Fast and benchmarks consistent with 1GB file size to 10GB
-Well built, this feels really solid. No bending when handling it and pressing into the slot
-5yr warranty
-Packaging is good, consistent with other corsair product I've bought recently

AS SSD results in MB/s:
Read Write
Seq: 2338.6 1307.6
4k: 31.3 86.8
4k-64thrd 867.0 781.7
Acc.time: 0.042ms 0.478ms
Score 1132 999
2662

Cons: -The price per gig is a little high but has come down a lot since its release

Overall Review: -comes with both high and low-profile brackets
-It is very slim so this should work for most but since it is a PCIe drive, you'll have to think about where it will go relative to your GPU and if it may block your GPU air flow, or could intersect depending on your orientation

Incredibly fast! Not a bad SSD to use for your main OS drive or secondary drive for games 1/2/2018 9:08:00 PM

Pros: - Faster than most other SSDs. The PCI-E interface makes things speedier than a regular SATA interface
- Comes with a heatsink

Cons: - Uses a PCI-E slot - my motherboard doesn't have any PCI-E x1/x4 slots so had to use a PCI-E x16 slot instead

Overall Review: I've been using it lately as a secondary gaming hard drive and it loads things *way* faster than they do on my other SSDs. I'm impressed. I definitely recommend it for those who want to load games much faster than on other SSDs. Only downside is that if you have a motherboard with only two PCI-E x16 slots like my motherboard, you have to give up one of those slots to this guy - not a big deal really if you don't care about SLI configurations, but still a factor if you decide to go that route.

Fast, consistent, and has a built in heat sink 12/22/2017 8:54:18 AM

Pros: - Built in heat sink to increase lifespan
- Uses empty PCIe slot
- Comes with mini case bracket if you don't have a compact case

I like this form factor. It brings an interesting approach to the traditional disks. Most people don't use more than one PCIe slot and therefore could benefit from adding this. I also like the heat sink housing. There is no exposed circuit board so you don't have to worry about damaging anything.

This is fast. I haven't kept up with the latest SSD speeds but it is definitely bigger and faster than my other 2 SSDs. Besides just being fast, it has a very consistent transfer rate. Most SSDs have a lot of ups and downs when transferring files, but this is very uniform. Instead of looking like a heart rate monitor, it looks more like a patient who just flat-lined which happens to be good in this case.

Test results:
Min: 401.0 MBps
Max: 687.4 MBps
Avg: 439.2 MBps
Access time: 0.1 ms (like most SSD)

Cons: This is large enough that it may block your GPU's fans so just make sure you place the expansion cards accordingly.

Pretty sure there are no moving fans, just a heat sink. Still better than a normal 2.5" SSD drive that doesn't even have a heat sink but you'll want to make sure this still gets airflow.

Overall Review: If you're looking for an SSD and have empty space in the expansion card areas, this could come in handy.

Pros: -- low & regular profile brackets
-- fast
-- runs cool
-- slim
-- 5 yr warranty

Cons: (none noted)

Overall Review: This is an elegant device which exudes quality; too pretty to hide inside a case. The slim form shouldn’t interfere with adjacent motherboard slots. It comes with an additional low profile bracket for compatibility. The black aluminum case worked well to dissipate heat on the internal NVMe drives. On my old Dell 530s small form factor desktop operating as a server, the disk popped right in to the PCIe x16 slot and Linux reported it 399.9GB of empty space. Formatting happened too quickly to time. It draws under 8w, so shouldn’t stress your power supply. Corsair claims better reliability and higher performance than Triple-Level Cell (TLC) NAND SSDs.

The disk utility, hdparm, showed reads significantly faster than another SSD (Corsair about 2,430 Mb/s) and writes of over 1,500 Mb/s. It stored 10GB of mixed data (4,095 files) across a slow network to the server in approx. 15 min. (The bottleneck wasn’t the Corsair-- it was coasting.) Only the front side of the card barely felt warm and never got over 46 °C in tests. This drive will not heat up your machine significantly. Corsair recommends these platforms: Intel 100, 200, X99, X299 Chipsets
AMD Socket AM4 Platform and only Windows 10 and Mac OS X. However, Linux Mint/Ubuntu recognized it fine out of the box. If your Windows machine UEFI BIOS allows, you can use it as the boot drive. The BIOS has to be set to use the EFI boot loader. (CSM should be default in your BIOS. Click on CSM and look for the option “Launch Storage OpROM Policy” or similar. Change the default setting to “UEFI Only.”)

In summation, I want drives that are reliable, fast, and basically-- transparent. This drive is a real Lamborghini. With the 5 year warranty and Corsair quality, I expect it will be a very reliable addition to any desktop.
