Great idea, poorly executed
18 January 2015
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.
Economical speedup, but unreliable... (modified review)

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: 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: Terrible product, DO NOT WASTE your money. It does not work on my average setup. None of the mentioned limitations are an issue with my setup. I am a knowledgeable computer person (over 15 years building my own PCs).
Hosed my prevoiusly stable system in less than 24 hrs.

Summary: Win7 had been rock solid on this machine. Installed my new Corsair 60 gig acc SSD and the dataplex and it seemed to be working well, until I tried to uninstall Nero backitup and this produced a bluescreen. Then the system wouldnt restart without a bluescreen.
Summary: My Dell system uses a Nvidia SATA chipset that would not work with Nvelo's caching software. Nvelo's support team was very responsive but told me this is a known limitation. The drive works fine as a formatted non-caching SSD.
Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this system. Since I installed the Corsair SSD60 gig Accelerator my system now and then will not wake up after going to sleep. This never happened until I installed this product. I have to turn the computer off/on and try a reboot.
Summary: I have similar problem as tommyboy 808 negative reviews: Dataplex errors message. I think it's software compatibility issues. I use acronis true image and acronis disk director, McAfee firewall, HDHomerun Tuner-WMC. It cause window to hang during watching TV on WMC.
Summary: I do not like writing negative reviews, but in this case I have to describe my experience with the . I really wanted this to work since I think it's a great concept. This is my experience and may not be representative. I will look forward to long-term reports from others.
Summary: It was easy to install hardware & software. I got it up and running in 15 minutes and it appeared worth the hype - I got significant improvements in app startup times and read/write operations. Everything seemed to be ok untill I needed to re-install cygwin.
