Don't buy if you have a Mac
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.
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. I have tried searching for firmware upgrades, but Corsair seems to fail at supporting any platform besides Windows. If you are a Mac user, stay far away from this SSD. It won't be very good for your Mac.
Summary: There are many online reports that the firmware on these drives is creating problems and blue screens for many people. Corsair acknowledges this in their forums and is working on a fix, so be wary.
Summary: purchased this drive and at first was lightning quick but soon started getting weekly fails on the drive and each time would have to remove cable and reattach drive to get it working again. have read that firmware updates are needed but these didn't seem to work so have asked for a replacement, let's hope the new one is better!!
Summary: Personal experience of this drive wasn't great. Artificial benchmarks were giving me a performance boost of more than double my previous SSD (Vertex 2), but real world performance increases were basically non-existent. Regardless, this would have been a five star drive *if* I hadn't had problems. Unfortunately it is only this specific drive that seems to have problems.
Summary: VERKLIGA LÄS/SKRIVHASTIGHETER VARIERAR STORT! STOR VARNINGSSKYLT TILL DIG MED NOLL DATORKOLL! KÖP IFRÅN EN BUTIK MED GODA RETURERFARENHETER! LÄS MER INTRESSANT OM SSD:S PRESTANDA NEDAN: Till att börja med måste du underrättas om att det har varit STORA problem med SSD-hårddiskar som använt sig av Sandforce-teknologin under hela 2011. Forum över hela internet kryllar av info om detta. Det verkar som att det mest beror på vilket moderkort datorn har.
