Drive was great, until it died.

Greg S., Newegg
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Purchased this drive to replace a failed Linux OS drive (also an SSD). 2nd Corsair to go bad on me (first was new), so I'm trying a different brand. When SSD's work, they are awesome!
  • Pros: Very fast, linux (Server) would boot in roughly 12-13 seconds
  • Cons: This drive is just past the 90 day mark and it has also failed.

Fast, but unreliable.

Tom S., Newegg
6 January 2015
  • Summary: I'm glad I got this on sale. My next SSD is going to not have a sandforce chipset.
  • Pros: It's really fast.
  • Cons: It keeps freezing the entire computer. Disabling ALPM in UEFI helped, some. It still freezes every once in a while, though. Down from every hour or two to once a week or so.

I would pass on this one...

Anonymous, Newegg
14 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought two 120gb corsair force 3 ssd's to store plugins, jails, VM's for my recent FreeNas build nothing too critical as I can reinstall them easily. I am glad I bought two. The first SSD would only be recognized by the system every 4-10+ reboots and when I did get it to be recognized it would...
  • Pros: It may work when it wants to... When it dies it may make a nice coaster...
  • Cons: Panic Lock!

Good while it lasted

Raymond Y., Newegg
28 September 2014
  • Pros: It was fast. It was refurbished so that price was decent enough to make a gamble. And I lost.
  • Cons: The drive was dead within 8 months of use. I wouldn't recommend buying this for anything other than a scrap drive.

There's a reason why there's a 30 day warranty

Susanne K., Newegg
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Spend the extra money and buy one new or with a warranty. There's a reason why they give a 30 day warranty. Bought in 07/13. Installed in 09/13. Throwing errors by 02/14.
  • Pros: Price and good while it worked
  • Cons: Lasted 5 months 30 day warranty

BSOD

Andrew W., Newegg
25 November 2013
  • Summary: I guess for the price, this is what you pay for. I'm already out of the 30 warranty, so I guess I'll look into a brand new SSD from a different manufacturer.
  • Pros: Great Price, solid performance. Very fast transfer speeds. Very good bang for your buck SSD drive for laptops or desktops. Just make sure you have a spare drive to store all your pictures and/or multimedia files. Windows 7, after all updates, and a handful of apps installed, I've only got 40gigs ...
  • Cons: The SSD started to BSOD on me. This is a new rig, so all hardware is new. I tried swapping out the ram, but it still BSOD's on me. So, that pinpoints the cause to the SSD now. I've only had it for less than half a year. It still works, but the random BSOD's make it unreliable when I need my deskt...

Worked great till it didn't

Seth C., Newegg
25 September 2013
  • Pros: It was fast, the price was great and was easy to install
  • Cons: It may have been a refurb, but it died after only about 3 months, no warning; just dead.

Don't buy if you have a Mac

Maxxodd, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: Lots of problems with my macbook. Won't wake from sleep, frequent kernel panics. Cannot update the firmware from a mac, only PC. I ended up purchasing a Samsung 830 and will try the Corsair out in my PC. Haven't had problems with Crucial or Samsung. In the future, I will stick with them.

Fast, but everything went wrong.

Erik, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: I have always been against a spinning drive in a laptop, when I went out to purchase a new drive for my MacBook Pro, I needed a solid state drive and I needed at lease 120gb of storage. The 6gb/s was a big bonus but not one that I needed. Everything seemed great.

Worthless piece of junk

Another Amazon shopper, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • Summary: I am sure that this SSD is really fast when it works; however, I have wasted an entire day trying to get my Early 2011 13" Macbook Pro (running Lion 10.7.3) to recognize this hard drive -- it only recognizes it as an external drive but cannot work as an internal drive.
