Summary: This thing is really fast compared to a regular spin drive. I used for my C drive and put the OS and all the programs on it. It is lightning fast on boot up and program launch. Used normal 1T spin for storing data and this works great.
Summary: I Ca't find anything wrong with it, works like a charm. tried to copy huge files & it was as fast as: 1100 mb/sec over the same drive (read/write) 700 mb/sec from it to other mechanical drives 130 mb/sec from other mechanical drives to it
Summary: This was my first experience with SSD. WOW!! Huge difference. Boot times in under 20-25 seconds are the norm with this thing. Easy to install. Just wonderful. I wholeheartedly trust the Corsair name and this has been a "WOW" product for me. Again, my first SSD. It may not be the very fastest read/write SSD on the market, but I contend that it is among the very highest quality SSDs on the market. Recommended. Just buy it.
Summary: I've been running two of the drives in a raid configuration for a couple years now and I've had no problems. I haven't reloaded windows is a long time and they still boot to the desktop within 20 seconds of posting. They also transfer large files very quickly. I know they seem expensive, especially since the price of most ssd's have plummeted, but all of my buddies run these in our gaming rigs.
