Pros Very fast, even running on my SATA2 connection
Cons None so far, fantastic drive
Summary Bought about 2 months ago and I have had zero problems. Very fast, and it's even running at half speed on my SATA2 mobo. I have only filled about 90 gigs, but the extra space is always nice to have.
Would recommend to anyone looking for a good price/performance ratio.
Summary I've had it for a week, and using it as OS drive with some apps and a few games. It's lightning quick. Much better at reads then writes. Bechmarked it to 350mb/s read, 205 write. It's easily detected in bios and in windows recognizes it's an ssd, no need to tweak anything. I paid 229 after mail in rebate so I think it's a fair deal, 299 is a bit much.
Pros -FAST -Easy to install -Better than Sandforce -Better than OCZ products -Did I mention FAST?
Summary Ok so I bought 2 of the new 16 chip design OCZ Vertex 2 SSDs and I honestly wasn't that satisfied with their performace. So I decided to blow some more money and I took a chance with Corsair. Let me start by saying I have NEVER owned any memory solutions by Corsair, all of the RAM, USB Sticks, etc I have ever purchase have been from OCZ. After my experience with the two Vertex 2 drives I pruchased I feel that I wasted my money and now I wish I would have bought 2 of these instead.
I put this as my main (boot) drive and I now use the OCZ drives to store games, extra applications, etc. Honestly even installing Windows 7 went much faster with this drive when compared to the OCZ drives. When I installed Windows 7 on the OCZ drives it took 17 minutes. On this drive I was able to install Windows 7 and be at the start screen in 8 MINUTES!!!! I simply cannot believe the speed of this drive. It is FAST.
I will never buy another product from OCZ, from now on it's Corsair all the way!
Summary My first experience with SSD so I decided to pull the stops out and get a SATA 6BG version. This means I can't compare to SATA 3GB models but the speed of this drive is just silly quick. Windows boots in seconds, Visual Studio 2010 boots in 2-3 seconds. Just a shame its that much more expensive than the previous gen but I guess that's to be expected.
Pros Very nice finising , i was suprised when i saw it's metallic silver casing, it so pretty and it comes with the 3.5" mount in good quality. The speed is good and stable, no laggy moment. installed windows about 10 mins! bootup about 7 seconds, i have i7 920 OC 4.0, 6GB Trident 2000MHz DDR3, P6X58-Premium setup,
Cons expensive but worth it!
Summary very good quality, i actually have Curiual RealSSD 128GB but it is dead yeseterday and I sent it back to RMA , on the same day (yesterday) I bought this Corsair, and it's more stable. perhaps i should have to update the firmware on my RealSSD before.. just lazy anyways, good product
Legit Bottom Line: Corsair's Performance 3 Series is a big step up from the previous generation with the SATA 6Gbps interface giving it room to stretch its legs. However, they face stiff competition from the similarly equipped Intel drives and the emerging SandForce based drives so how fast they
Performance 3 Series solid-state drives combine the latest Marvell controller and supercharged synchronous NAND to eliminate bottlenecks and provide the serious 6Gbps SATA III bandwidth you need for cutting edge video and graphics.
