Corsair Fail

AARON P., Newegg
10 January 2015
  • Summary: Avoid
  • Pros: Ran okay for three years
  • Cons: Died right after the warranty ran out. Very disappointed in this SSD and Corsair for their lack of quality control on these. I will be going with the company that rhymes with Ramsung from here on.

2 years - still disappointed

James R., Newegg
27 September 2014
  • Pros: Fast start up - as with any ssd
  • Cons: Ordered 2 - on DOA as far as I am concerned. Only one has worked reliably, the other never shows up on any bios I've attempted to connect it to. Hardly any use on the remaining drive and I see symptoms of failing. I really expected more from corsair but I'll be looking elsewhere for my next ssd.

3 Dead Ducks

Perry L., Newegg
1 August 2014
  • Summary: I am confused as to the probability of 3 dead drives.
  • Pros: Nice light drives.
  • Cons: All 3 drives that I ordered are not recognized by the computers I am using here. I have tried in 2 different Dell laptops and a desktop HP. In all cases, the BIOS will not recognize the drives. Even using a USB to SATA cable shows nothing. BIOS set to ACHI, etc...

No Long Term Reliability

George F., Newegg
20 January 2014
  • Summary: I have several other Corsair products in various systems which have been trouble free. Corsair shouldn't be judged on the failure of an SSD.
  • Pros: As an SSD it is fast and quiet. Just what you should expect.
  • Cons: Built a new small system with this as my C: drive. Died without warning after 10 months. Spent much diagnosis time and system recovery attempts but eventually had to admit my C: drive was dead and the SSD was not recognizable to the system. Corsair's RMA process was handled well and drive replace...

Would not recommend

Normal Norman, Amazon
31 July 2013
  • Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS SSD. I bought one Corsair Force Series 3 90GB for use in my Thinkpad T61. It had the latest firmware (5.05) out of the box. After installing a fresh copy of Windows 7, it runs ok for a few hours. Then I noticed that every 20 min or so, it froze the computer for 1-2 min.
