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...

Great Boot Drive!

  • Summary: Price: well, ssd drives are not cheap! but this one is for what you get, corsair name, mounting kit, screws. I really enjoyed it and it was great, only problem was my motherboard and getting it to boot with ACHI enabled which is necessary for SSD optimization. Still going strong, ill update if client has any problems with it.

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

  • Excerpt: Low-cost drive, has TRIM, curb stomps Raptors in smaller random study/writes. Yes, it is a bit small. Nonetheless, it hosts Windows 7,Office 2007, and a few applications for information manipulation with more than 10 gigs to spare. 4Kb write speed seems to lag behind OCZ Onyx. I haven't seen any benchmarks of these drives however, therefore why I'm writing this evaluation.

  • Excerpt: This is operating as My Windows drive. So far the new make functions. I am still experimenting. There is an Intense lack of instructions. Like the Corsair web website. On the Corsair net web-site there is a forum that has a lot of information on how to configure windows so it doesn't fill up an SSD.

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

Macy, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Coming from a SATA II 7200 HDD, this is a big leap. I purchased this drive mostly for my new upgrade to Win7 and it installed the OS incredibly quickly. I'd adore to see what a larger finish SSD could achieve, contemplating this 1 is at the reduced end of the spectrum. I have been wanting to dive into the SSD world for a although, and this was a fantastic stepping stone. I can't wait for the storage to boost at the costs drop in the future.

  • Excerpt: Extremely solid and small drive.Loaded Win7 64bit on it with no any difficulties, gets a 7. rating. Not really as rapid as I was thinking. This is my 1st SSD and I actually am not seeing that substantially of a general speed improve, see other thoughts.Also, why the hell haven't storage manufacturers started adopting the appropriate usage for storage size? This 32GB is truly 29.7GB.

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

  • Excerpt: My very initial SSD from my SB set-up. It's incredibly low-cost and reliable. Such a shame that I didn't get the 10 dollar discount right after the release of Sandy Bridge. Boots my Windows 7 in much less than 15 seconds. So far so great, I've been making use of it due to the fact the 10th of January. Ultra DMA CRC Error Count Status: Warning in HD Tune.4 months and 28 days and counting is the estimated life of this SSD with SSD life.

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

Trevet, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Really quickly. Boots a fresh install of Windows 7 in 15-20 seconds. Programs open like they're minimized. Unstable at instances and unpredictable. It will blue screen and/or hang up if you don't disable the page file in Windows. It is unstable in SATA IDE mode; you should set AHCI mode in your BIOS. Write speed is slower than HDD. Not as easy as just "pop it in and go".

  • Excerpt: Great cost (๛) and reputable. I originally purchased two for a RAID config Ɨ.9 speed rating for windows 7 - the max). But then realized that 60 gig was barely adequate. So I bought 2 much more and added to the RAID array. I now have 4 in the striped setup and get about 800meg a second transfer, and .1 ms access time. Boot and shutdown occasions are significantly faster, but most impressive is the loading of programs, specifically games.
