13 November 2014
Summary: So far so good. Didn't get the BLAZING SPEED everyone keeps talking about - but it is faster. Forgot this part - DOES NOT COME WITH A SATA CABLE!!! Not sure why I just assumed it would, but I did. So I had to go back to ole Amazon and order one of those.
Summary: works well so far. recognized immediately by the system. I used Macrium Reflect (free) to image the original Win 8.1 system and restore/migrate it to the new SSD. It's a good idea to shut down the system immediately after completing an OS migration and remove the original HDD.
Pros: OK SSD for the price, but not as fast as the Samsung SSDs I own. I bought it for my wife's new Acer laptop and for that purpose it is fine. I like the fact that Corsair already has over provisioning built into their drives - a nice feature. Another plus is that it is 7mm so the fit in the laptop ...
Cons: As I said, it is not as fast as the Samsungs I own, but it was much cheaper.
