Default Corsair Accelerator 30GB SSD Review Comment Thread

Corsair's Accelerator 30GB is being introduced into a market that's found respect for once-lowly cache drives. Ringing in at just $60, this SSD isn't meant as a stand alone solution since it is supposed to link up with your hard drive and provide increased system responsiveness.

Another great review, thanks for putting in the time. I've heard that Nvelo had some issues with drives greater than 2TB and was curious as to whether they have fixed that yet?

Honestly, I havent tried. IMHO if you can afford a 3TB - or 4TB - HDD...you can afford a moderate sized SSD that will be faster than these hybrids. These are for older rigs that also have problems with drives larger than 2TB. They are great for the price, but this niche is getting smaller and smaller with every NAND price drop.
