First, we'd like a controller chipset that not only delivers good performance but keeps doing so for longer than a few weeks.

Reviews Word on the street for the Corsair Nova V64

Indeed, it's well behind on both sequential reads and 4k random performance.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


We don't think the V64 is actually the fastest drive here in any objective sense.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2010)
Not the fastest SSD chip in town, perhaps; but thanks to frequent firmware polishing, it's now a very consistent performer.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2010)
However, when it comes to real-world performance, it's clearly no slouch.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2010)


All of which means our only major concern is the drive's capacity.
