Great idea, poorly executed

Summary: Great idea,poorly executed. If the SSD drive goes bad or flaky ,the hard disk goes raw (unformatted) and the DR utility they have doesn't seem to work. So you end up having to use 3rd party rescue software to get your data back. With SSD in general dropping in price,this has seen it's day.
Very easy way to make a fast PC - even an old one.

Summary: I have an old Dell desktop computer with SATA interface and Windows 7 Pro. I decided to install this cache drive. Compatibility is superb. I installed the drive with the SATA cable, then enabled the SATA port on the Bios, reset de computer and it was detected automatically.

Summary: With higher density SSD drives, the bar is higher for mass storage performance. Much faster than mechanical disk drives, but also much more expensive. The corsair drive with Nvelo software bridges this gap nicely.
Summary: This greatly increased my computer on my windows 7 machine. To cheap to get an actual SSD to replace my 1TB hard drive, I got this and it was wonderful! Programs opened faster, were usable faster, boot time was decreased significantly, and shut down time was almost non existent!
Summary: Installed the "Accelerator" SSD and downloaded the software with no issues beyond the highly annoying licensing scheme. Set it up to cache a secondary drive. Was delighted at first with the marked improvement in read/write speeds, that is, until the system froze on a later boot-up, and the entire...
Summary: Install in custom built i7 desktop to improve software performance. Thus far machine boots quicker and my bar code programs performance has been quicker. Less costly and very simple upgrade to perform without having to replace 4 2TB HDs with SSDs or modifing windows - all automatic.
