Creeping death in a SSD

IOAN R., Newegg
21 September 2015
  • Pros: It's small
  • Cons: This SSD never actually died. What it did was regularly and viciously corrupt files so that I never had a day's peace while my windows installation was on it. Other than having to reinstall the OS every week it's a great buy.

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.

Failed 1 month after warranty ended

Jon R. Helms, Amazon
28 September 2013
  • Summary: Bought the drive on June 10th 2010 and it died on July 11th 2013. Per Corsair it has a 3 year warranty, not 2 year like the Amazon site says. It was not bad while it lasted, but it shouldn't die right after the warranty ends.

Never buy corsair again

Benjamin L., Newegg
27 December 2012
  • Summary: I have similar issues with other corsair thumbdrive products, namely usb 3.0 drives. The hassle and loss of data is too much, so I will be filtering out any corsair products from this day forward when im in the market for new equipment again.
  • Pros: Speed is nice
  • Cons: I bought 6 of these. After 6 months - One no longer is seen by the BIOS. 2 have bad blocks all over the place. And another is dead slow. So 4 out of 6 are useless. I have verified this on several other computers.

Was good while it worked

Anonymous, Newegg
26 June 2012
  • Summary: My 'luck' with hdd's is abysmal. I have a 75%+ fail rate on drives under 1 yr. They sit in desktops and don't move. I was really looking forward to a drive with little room for mechanical failure.
  • Pros: Fast enough. Was a good drive for a little more then 9 months.
  • Cons: Died fast. I am so sick of harddrives in general. This one only lasted 9+ months. I had hoped for much better off a SSD.

BAD SSD - Steer away from Corsair

Bernard E. Howell, Amazon
21 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought two of these SSDs and both have gone bad within a year and a half. Sent the first back as an RMA and Corsair sent me a "Refurbished" replacement which promptly failed upon trying to format it... As I cannot afford to waste anymore time with Corsair I have recently purchased Mushkin SSDs.

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!!!
