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.

Atomic failbomb

Jay, Amazon
26 June 2012
  • Summary: It was a good drive for a short time. 9 months is a short time, and I was hoping for much more. I treated the thing with respect, didn't write much to it at all. It was setup as a boot drive with no cache, or swap or even log files being written to it. All it needed to do was read the OS and sometimes update it (the os). I really really hate the thing now. Showed no warning signs before it died. Just wouldn't show at POST one day.

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.

Failed in less than one month

MikeInWA, Amazon

  • 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.

Failed within 7 months

Beau Steward, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: When I got the drive and started using it, it was great. It was reasonably fast in my netbook, with no compatibility issues or any problems for the first half year of its use. However, it failed completely within 7 months. After looking around at places such as Newegg, I've found others have shared my pain with this drive. I've had issues with Corsair hardware failing prematurely on me in the past.

Corsair Nova CSSD-V32GB2-BRKT 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Lesley, pricebat.ca
4 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Decent functionality. Worked effectively for practically 7 months. No compatibility troubles. All the apparent positive aspects of a SSD as long as it works. Failed inside 7 months. Shut down the computer and the next day it would not recognize the drive. Did lots of testing and nothing could study it anymore. Nova is a fitting name. Immediately after numerous failures of Corsair items, I am now swearing them off.
