Note: I am using the ASRock z77 Extreme 4 mobo and an Intel i5-2500k Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz CPU. The SSD is plugged into the SATA3 Intel Controller at 6gb/s.
Using the exact same benchmarking program as Corsair, ATTO Disk Benchmark, and the same parameters that they used, I was able to achieve ~557Mb/s for Read and ~532Mb/s Write. While it is a minuscule amount, I got read and write speeds that were above the advertised speeds, which is a definite plus in my books.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and with what Corsair has done with the SSD, definitely recommend it.
Wow, what difference! Photoshop loads in 3 seconds now instead of 32, Daz studio is up and running in about 7 or 8, Excel 2012 in .4 (yes, that's 4 tenths of a second), Word in a 1.5 seconds. Games run snappier too - they load faster, sure, but many games (at least the MMOs and RTS games I play) can be fairly disk intensive when playing and they've seen a nice pop as well. In the many years I've been playing with computers (since the 70s), this is the single most impressive single-component upgrade I've done since my first hard drive all those years ago.
The other great thing about this drive is how simple and easy it was to work with - it's light, it uses very little power, no special drivers or other twiddling required, just load and go. It's about as easy as it comes.
Well, long story short: same deal. Instant start-up, super-fast throughput and solid reliability under constant, heavy use is why Corsair is my goto brand for these drives. I've used OCZ drives with no issue, but, at the time I was shopping around, Corsair had the better price on higher capacity drives, so I took a chance. No regrets and I'll not likely change brands any time soon.
I have redundant backups on all of my systems in as many as 3 different online/offline locations, but, unlike with my platter drives before, I've never had even the slightest hiccup in the years that I've been using this SSD. Well done, Corsair.

I only benchmarked the 240GB model, but the benchmarks aligned with the speeds that Corsair claims. Using SATA 3 6Gbps rather than 3Gbps made a significant performance difference as well.

Worked great for 6 months - very fast.
Then, without warning, it failed and was totally unrecoverable.
