Excellent SSD from one of the best manufacturers

Summary: This is an excellent choice for a SSD upgrade. I swapped out the HDD in my laptop for this one and I have been very happy with the performance increase. It takes about two seconds to boot now, Windows runs smoothly, and programs start up and run a lot faster.
Summary: Warranty support from Corsair is pretty good. They're reasonably easy to get a hold of, and their swap out policy is pretty good. Also this drive carries a 3 year warranty unlike some others (*cough*OCZ*cough*) so you won't feel abandoned after the sale.
Pros: Good midrange SSD. It's not the fastest SSD out there, but you're not going to be paying screaming eagle prices for one of these, either. It's also not the slowest SSD out there, and of course you're not going to be paying dirt eagle prices. Its speed is right about where you'd expect -- speedy b...
Cons: No mounting hardware included at all -- hope you have some screws handy!
Summary: I bought this to run as a system drive in a small, low-power, fanless server which handles my domain, DNS, and DHCP needs (among some other small tasks) as a secondary controller while my large, high-power, loud hypervisor server is shut down for the purposes of power consumption.
Summary: I installed this on an older Gateway laptop that I'm running xubuntu on. While xubuntu of course runs a whole lot faster than windows on this machine, I still wanted a little more speed. Replaced the OE 5400RPM 1 hard drive with this and it made a huge difference.
Summary: -Corsair Warranty -Cat vs laptop Keep in mind this is not a top of the line SSD. There are faster SSDs, but they are also priced higher. This is also not a low-end SSD, but the price does compete with some of those. It is an excellent choice for the price that it has.
Pros: -Cost effective -Good Speeds The speeds on this drive are right around what is advertised. My average speeds during benchmarks were 558 MB/s Read and 307 MB/s Write. This SSD offers very good performance for the price point that it is at. Its actual retail price seems a bit high, but I have never...
Cons: -Nothing extra included Most SSDs at least come with mounting screws, this one came with nothing in the box other than the SSD and a small warranty paper. This wasn’t really a problem for me, but it is something to keep in mind if you don’t have an area to mount a 2.5” drive, you may need to get ...
Summary: Packaging is very basic, it included the SSD and nothing else, no screws or cables or brackets. The Corsair SSD Toolbox software is downloadable on the Corsair website and as of this review there are no firmware updates for the product.
Pros: This SSD is rather inexpensive (less than $0.50 a gigabyte on sale). Due to this being a budget SSD as expected the write performance is not at the level of flagship SSD’s, however in most use case scenario’s consumers tend to read more from a SSD than write and will not notice the reduced write ...
Cons: At full retail price (149.99 USD) I would look else where, but at current pricing (94.99 USD) this is a good deal, but keep an eye out SSD's go up for sale often, it is a very competitive market.
