Corsair SSD's are reliable?

#1ThePCElitistPosted 9/23/2013 8:00:50 AM
I had a really hard time finding many reviews on this particular Corsair SSD I was interested in but I eventually found a couple that gave it pretty positive reviews so I ended up picking it up. I'm just wondering how reliable Corsair SSD's are though.

The one I purchased was a Corsair Neutron 256 GB

Really? No one here has an opinion about Corsair SSD's?

Have had mine for almost a year and no complaints at all installed super fast really easy but the sata connection piece is kinda flimsy not going to lie wish they made it a bit more sturdy

Corsair Force GT 120 gig

The Force GT is a Sandforce 2281 SSD, so pretty average speed nowadays. It's better with compressible than incompressible data. Be sure to update the firmware though, the old ones had some issues.

The Force GS does reading at bit better, but writing a bit worse (other flash)

The Force 3 is pretty much the same story as the GT, BUT it has asynchronous flash, which it means it gets slower the fuller it gets.

The Performance Pro has a marvel controller, which is faster at writing and reading the small OS related files than Sandforce SSDs. Sequential writing and compressible data is worse.

The Neutrons offer pretty good performance , but are somewhat overpriced. The LAMD controller is also pretty new, so it hasn't yet proven it's reliability.

SSDs in my experience last just as long as mechanical drives, thanks to the write limits. You're just paying a premium for the speed and reduced capacity.

Hm I'll research the LAMD controller info to see what you're talking about. I don't know much of anything about it. But I paid $179 for this ssd was that a fair price? It seemed to have been in the same price bracket as similar capacity SSD's from what I saw.

I would only buy a Samsung, Intel, Plextor or Crucial SSD.
