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. After this experience I will steer clear of Corsair SSDs (and most likely anything else Corsair).
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.
Summary: Bought the 64GB Corsair SSD in Feb 2011. In just over one month it was dead. Now I face the hassle of warranty and ask myself why I'd want another one of the same. Bought it because it was low cost. Maybe this is a lesson for me. Here's what happened to mine: Built my laptop OS on it and it worked wonderfully. Booted WIn7 64bit in less than 30 seconds. Seemed all good.
