Haven't had problems with any of these yet

Summary: I have 7 of these, all are working great, and have been for over a month. I get almost 500mb/s read, and 200-300 write. For the price, that's pretty good. MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE THE FIRMWARE. These come with an old version. I had bluescreens on one of my older motherboards (Intel P67) until i updated the SSD firmware to 5.24. Just download the Corsair SSD toolbox, its easy to update the firmware from there.
Summary: This is an excellent solid state drive that will make you system much quicker booting. My boot to Windows 7 is less than 12 seconds and to Windows 8.1 is less than 5 seconds. Bring up Microsoft Office Word in less than two seconds and your browser in less than five seconds. Your system runs much cooler too. Don't stop a one; buy two - you won't regret it.
Summary: This is the first ssd I've used and I will say that I'm impressed. I am using this as my boot drive and it is fast! It seems to be another quality product from corsair. Hopefully it continues to perform well into the future.
Summary: I filled up my Samsun SSD so I had to expand and went with a Corsair SSD; they made my ram so why not try their hard-drives? It worked flawlessly; plugged it in, formated it, and started installing games. Have no load issues with any game; from Bioshock to COH II.
Brilliant Drive, Excellent Speed, Necessary Upgrade for a Mid-2010 Macbook Pro

Summary: For some background, I was about ready to throw my mid-2010 Macbook Pro out of a window. It was slow, unresponsive, had many-a kernel panic. It was getting ridiculous and, though I was under AppleCare, support was of no help whatsoever. Enter the Corsair Force GS solid state drive. The day I upgraded my hard drive was the day I started to love my computer again. All issues with speed, lagging text, kernel panics have all gone.
Summary: When I bought this on Amazon, it was practically dead on arrival, I received it, it worked, then suddenly it died, after going through the "Express RMA" by Corsair (it is fast, but they never talk to you, I still don't even know if they received the broken SSD) The solid state is great, it runs nice and fast, always reliable, a welcome addition to my budget gaming computer
Summary: I don't run hard drive or system performance measurement software as a hobby, and I'm pretty sure that's the only way you could ever tell the difference between this little gem and the "hottest, newest" whatever drive out there. You never have to wait on anything to open. Opening a program feels almost exactly like just clicking on one that's already open. For the price and size, it's very good. Very pleased with this purchase and would do again.
Summary: I bought two of these for a raid stripe, and they met my expectations. They're fast, cheaper than most of the competition, and they have a good build quality.Recommend for those who want a reasonably priced SSD with fabulous performance.
