Sudden drive failure x 2 & poor warranty support from Corsair

StefanL "propofol", Amazon
7 November 2014
  • Summary: Failed after 2 years. This was replaced under warranty by Corsair with a refurbished drive. The replaced drive has just failed as well with read errors. Interestingly enough these drives does not seem to support testing with smartctl. When a long test is initiated it would just keep reporting that the test is underway & stay at 90% complete. On Corsair's website it is no longer easy to check warranty status. You have to register first & show them proof of purchase.

Worked Well, Crashed Hard

Glenn, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: This drive served me well. It was installed in a small (mini-ITX) system that was used as a print server on a home network. It was running 24 hours a day, available at any time. The drives performance was quite nice, allowing for quick reboots after installing O/S patches. However, when it crashed, it crashed without warning and went completely dead. It lasted not quite three years. Not bad, but I would have expected more from a drive that did not get much use.

Lasted 2 years and then began to act strange.

Lawrence S. Sinanan "You get what you pay for", Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: This drive developed some strange behaviour. causing BSODs. Using offline boot CD, I zero-filled it twice without a problem. Those who know how SSDs work will know why i had to repeat the zero fill. Now, Windows 7 64bit would crash during install. Again using another off-line boot cd, I used a low level format tool to format the device only because it had a Drive map progress bar. The two times I tried to format it, I saw a bad sector in the same spot!

DO NOT BUY!!! I say again, DO NOT BUY!!

SF415, Amazon
27 January 2012
  • Summary: I wish it was possible to give less than 1 star, because any hard drive that dies within a year deserves NO stars. Unlike any other hardware that can go out on a PC, a dead hard drive is the absolute WORST thing that can happen because every single important data is lost forever!!! This is my first SSD, also my first experience with Corsair brand SSDs. Needless to say, I have totally lost all trust in this brand.

Fast Performance from a "64GB" HDD

RhC, Amazon
21 October 2011
  • Summary: I got this HDD to replace a faulty laptop drive. The performance is really fast; I was surprised at the performance boost, especially on OS and program start-up - I was expecting some, but not as much as the drive ended up giving me. However, what started as a 64GB SSD became a 57GB drive rather quickly; I understand that flash memory is a bit volatile and unstable, however to lose 7GB (and some change) in space was kind of disappointing; you might not - and in fact...
