I highly recommend this solid state drive.

Michael Gordon "Michael Gordon", Amazon

  • Summary: I use this hard drive to load Windows 7 with a Duo Core 2 Intel processor. I have compared the loading time with my computer, which uses this solid state hard drive, and my brother's, which uses a regular hard drive, and I can say that my computer loads faster than his.

BUY IT

  • Summary: - I am using this drive for games only currently. I am very much considering one for the OS. - I would recommend SilverStone SDP08 3.5" to 2 x 2.5" Bay Converter. It can hold two SSD's and looks great in chrome and very easy to install
  • Pros: - Fast response time and fast data transfer time (example: transferring 15 GB to this drive look less than 1 min 30 secs....its blazen!!!)..Every thing about this drive is FAST....even the install - Awesome for gaming and large file recall - MTBF = 114 years!!!! lol I hope so! You will not be dis...
  • Cons: Only price....but in time it will come down...and can't wait for that day. I will buy several.

Amazing product

David Versteeg, Amazon
5 February 2010
  • Summary: This SDD technology is definitely the future for capacity drives. The drive is stable, has really fast read/ write capabilities and uses less energy in the process. With traditional HDDs becoming larger and larger, it is a relieve to see a smaller size high performance drive so I can dedicate it to...

awesome.

Aaron G., Newegg
14 December 2009
  • Summary: intel core2 duo wolfdale OC'ed to 4.2GHz, asus 9800GTS, asus P5Q, 8GB OCZ ram, Win 7 business, Ubuntu Karmic. Primarily used as a photo processing and coding machine. I will be buying another SSD for my laptop (got it after this drive) when I can spare the cash again.
  • Pros: Beastly speed, blazingly fast, quicker than my stepmother's tongue. Seriously, this drive was the single most signficiant performance booster I've purchased in years... After POST, win7 loads in about 6 seconds (to login, another 4 to usable system state after login). Ubuntu Karmic loads in about...
  • Cons: Size and price. I have ubuntu karmic and win 7 dual booting and this drive doesn't really leave room for much - but that's why I have regular HDD's.

Great disk

Michael B., Newegg
6 December 2009
  • Summary: Noticably faster boot than my old sata raid1 pair. Biggest difference is in how fast programs on the ssd load and execute. A few simple tweaks will help windows be more ssd friendly.
  • Pros: Good price, not a problem to date, very fast, totally silent
  • Cons: None to speak of.

Incredible Speed Upgade

Matthew W., Newegg
21 November 2009
  • Summary: Had to apply the tweaks manually, as Win7 didn't change the settings for superfetch, defrag, etc... See the corsair SSD->FAQ forums for a great walkthrough. Almost as good an upgrade to my computer than my 5850 which is also totally awesome, with the amazing graphics, and 7.1 192Khz lossless PCM...
  • Pros: I wasn't sure if this was going to be worth it, but what a pleasant surprise! This thing has made my system way way faster, even more than I was expecting. Very nice case, top brand reputation. Received new firmware with Garbage Collection, to maintain performance.
  • Cons: None for me except perhaps cost. Size is not a problem, 64 GB is plenty for my Win7 sys drive.

Follow Up To My Above Review

Steven S., Newegg
5 November 2009
  • Summary: This drive's performance has really rejuvinated my Pentium D 955 CPU system. Samsung makes great controllers.
  • Pros: Just a follow up - Techspot put this drive up against an OCZ 60GB SLC drive. With the exception of 4K block performance it held its own easily, to the point the reviewer was not sure the SLC drive was worth it for anything but enterprise use. I am not experiencing any drive slowdown that I can no...
  • Cons: You are still at the mercy of Samsung, and they don't care about firmware updates, non-desructive drive rejuvination, etc. to anywhere near the extent that Indilinx does. The newest firmware on this drive is claimed to restore performance if the computer is left in an idle state for an hour. Chec...

Great Drive

Steven S., Newegg
2 October 2009
  • Summary: The usual stuff - turn off hibernation, drive indexing, system restore, prefetch, superfetch, etc. Put your pagefile and temp files on a secondary mechanical drive. If you can get an alignment of 32,64, 1024 or 2048 and install under F6'd SATA/RAID drivers you'll not doubt get even better...
  • Pros: Samsung controller. 128MB DRAM. Smooth under XP 32-bit, IDE enhanced mode. I did not align the drive at any recommended integer offset; I assume XP took the standard 63 offset which is undesirable for SSD performance as pages are aligned but NAND blocks are not. It took a ghosted image from a rap...
  • Cons: I got sustained 90+MB/s writes. Sustained reads about at claimed amounts. Corsair is more primitive than OCZ when it comes to utilities for updating firmware and running utilities to non-detructively rejuvinate the drive as it slows down over time. Be prepared for that. Samsung is not as consumer...

Stutter Free under 32-bit XP

Steve S., Amazon
1 October 2009
  • Summary: I did nothing to tweak or align this drive under 32-bit XP. I did turn off system restore, drive inedexing, and moved pagefile and temp files to a secondary mechanical drive. But as for hardcore tweaks, I did not have the time. Nor am I running it to its potential.
