Any reviews/experiences with the Corsair Nova Series 2?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, just came across a potentially tasty little SSD on Newegg here, the Corsair Nova 2. Was wondering if anyone has come across any reviews (I couldn't find any) or if anyone has had any experiences with it. I was thinking about including it in a build for a friend of mine if it turns out to be an okay drive unless Newegg's $119 price on a 64GB M4 stays, or if I can find any better promo codes in the meantime.

It seems the drives have been out for a couple weeks, so anything someone might know is greatly appreciated.

I am curious about this drive as well. I have found zero reviews on this series of Corsair SSD. The two reviews on NE are promising and the advertised speeds look good too.

Still nothing on this drive. Zilch, nada. It seems to be the best bargain on Newegg since it is sub $100 AND 60gb. What gives? There are ZERO reviews to be found anywhere.... and the corsair site doesn't have any info other than what Newegg says.

I can't find much info on this drive either. The price looks good, going for about €85 where I live. The sequential read and write speeds also look good, but no word on random read and writes or IOPS. Plus I can get an M4 64 for 10 bucks more, at least then I know what I'm getting. Though I have read somewhere that this SSD is sporting a controller by Phison
