Corsair Force 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it worked it was okay.

Cons: When I first installed this drive in my MacPro 8-Core it worked okay. Then it started to randomly lock up the machine. I know the SSD is the culprit because I have a nightly clone of my boot drive on a regular platter HDD which never freezes when booted from.

Searching on Corsair's support forums, they claim that firmware 2.0 solves these issues. However, there is no tool to upgrade the firmware on a Mac. So I RMAed the drive back to Corsair at my own expense to update the firmware.

Today I got the drive back and immediately cloned my boot drive back to the SSD. However the new "improved" 2.0 Firmware has made the drive much much worse. It beachballs on boot (takes about 5 minutes to boot) and has already frozen on me twice. At this point I can only consider this drive to be defective and a ~$600 ineffectual paperweight.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this drive if you like your computer to work properly without freezing or booting extraordinarily slowly.
