p256 solid state drive

kenman, Amazon
13 February 2011
  • Summary: I have purchase this product some time ago and i have installed it on a qosmio x505 q898. I replace the the 64gig solid state drive that the laptop came with, with this one. It was the best decision i have made with more storage space i can load whole games onto the solid state without any problems and apart from that it is real fast the games runs really smooth without any gliches. I will recommend that one buys this its worth the money.

The single most amazinging performance gain I have ever whitnessed

Stephen S. "just another comsumer", Amazon

  • Summary: After raiding three of these in my six-core Mac Pro I am still stunned.WOW! The title says it all. I also put one in my unibody MacPro laptop and it runs cooler, is completely silent but as other reviews state, the speed difference is incredible. I literally could never go back to a noisy, slow hard disk again.

Best upgrade ever

Dennis Bowling "dcb", Amazon

  • Summary: I just installed the Corsair 256 on my win 7 notebook. This is the best upgrade I have ever done. Windows used to boot in about 3 min nw it is 50 sec. All software seems to load and run twice as fast. It is pricey but this is finally an upgrade that you can see the difference.

Stunning performance, easy to install

Cynthia, Amazon
16 April 2010
  • Summary: I have a Lenovo X201s that came with a fast 7,200 hard drive and an Intel i7 CPU. I bought this drive because I wanted to speed up boot and shut-down times, which were very acceptable but not anywhere near Mac performance. The drive installed without a hitch and fits perfectly into the slot. It may be an easier install on new ThinkPads because they come with a BIOS that supports solid state drives.

Best way to speed up your computer

P. Duggan, Amazon
9 April 2010
  • Summary: Installed this in a 3-year old laptop and it gave it new life! Worth the price in time saved. I used to start Outlook and then have to wait a few minutes before I could do anything. Now I can send an email, check the calendar, etc. in a couple of seconds. Startup, shutdown and every program I run is much faster as well.

Super Fast & Easy to instal

Gussy, Amazon
26 February 2010
  • Summary: Extremely fast - during a upgrade to Windows 7 on my new notebook had lots of restarts (OS, drivers, applications, etc.) - this drive made them all super fast. Internet downloads from the super faster. Installing applications was a easy as well. Drive replaced a Seagate 320gb/7200 which was no slouch btu this new SSD blew past it.

Not worth it, upgrade to Windows 7 instead

Choy Ngee Hoe, Amazon
23 February 2010
  • Summary: Background: * I wasn't very happy with my Sony SZ-series running on Win XP despite its "high spec". Start up time became between 2 to 5 minutes depending on I-don't-know-what. Shutting down took about the same time with similar "reasons". Applications had become more and more feet dragging. Many suggest a fresh O/S reinstallation but we all know that's a daunting task. * Many reviewers gave thumb up to SSD upgrade.

I'm relieved

James C. Blasius "what, me worry?", Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: Spending 8x the cost of a hard drive to buy a smaller drive for my macbook pro left me a bit concerned. Would it be worth it? When my boot time didn't go to five seconds (remember the diagnostics take the same time), it left me concerned. Was I a fool? Probably, but that's not the point. Having lived with this thing for a week or two, I begin to understand: the machine doesn't slow down. Running a compile in a VM doesn't slow down firefox elsewhere or vice-versa.

Revitalized my PC

Busy Executive, Amazon
6 February 2010
  • Summary: I installed one of these in my Lenovo X61 tablet, and so far it's been a great upgrade. The Lenovo had been sort of borderline performance-wise. Running Vista Ultimate, it was slow to boot, and certain tasks just seemed to take forever. Although I generally like using the tablet instead of a conventional PC, I was nearly at the point of replacing the PC in order to get better performance.

Great so far - noticeably faster and no problems

M. Dowdie, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • Summary: I bought this drive to use in my ThinkPad T61, replacing a Seagate 7200.4 500GB drive. The Seagate drive I replaced is very fast as 2.5" mechanical drives go, but this Corsair drive is noticeably faster. (Even though the T61 is limited to SATA I 1.5Gbps speed, so can't take full advantage of the Corsair's throughput.) My Windows 7 boot time was cut almost in half.
