The real world tests seem to indicate that all of the choices are on par and that the diffs in the specialized tests mean nothing to real world. Buy the cheapest one with the best warranty that doesn't eat your battery life. Spending 2X for <1 second?

Not a bad review, but for about $55-$60 less (in the 240GB capacity) I will stick with the MyDigital BPX (2 year longer warranty and double the TBW endurance rating).

Meh, People still buy Corsair's memory and SSDs? I've never had one that lasted. Either a dead stick or a failed SSD. Stopped buying them for two years now. Crucial and Samsungs never gave me any problems.

Bought a 4x4gb ddr3 1600mhz Corsair Vengeance back in 2012. Still running strong.

could just be poor quality control that affected more units than usual

Hi Chris,great review as usual-the separating of the sizes,although more work
is excellent.
As you noted-would be a great drive if priced to it's performance-It's Corsair
not going to happen.
Flash shortage and using flash not cut and binned by Toshiba is a bit of a
worry.(Remembering that's what helped kill OCZ)
As to Corsair being late to market-I am of the opinion Phison uses customers
as"Crash test dummies"Perhaps Corsair was thinking the same way.............

It feels odd to me that this wasn't compared to the Samsung 960 EVO, which to me would seem like it's immediate competition?
At least they're prized more or less exactly the same in Denmark.

Since NVMe is still relatively new for many people, it would be both useful and interesting to have a mainstream SATA attached SSD, as well as a traditional mechanical drive, thrown in for comparison.

The 960 Pro is available through Newegg and 5 other sellers at 329.99. Couldn't understand why you didn't fuse the specs here. :\

Despite an apparently good piece of hardware MP500 represents, CORSAIR didn't "Force" themselves to develop the software part of things. The "so acclaimed" and necessary SSD Toolbox is in fact an old and rusty "Emptybox", at least for this new series...

They are advertising on the product's page about SSD Toolbox support for S.M.A.R.T, over-provisioning, firmware update etc. and it is a HUGE LIE! How can they let us buy their products without providing not only the necessary support but the promised one... This is very unusual for a company like this... It seems like they didn't update this app since 2013!!!

So, if an ordinary extension-utility like this doesn't yet support the involved hardware to fully-enable it's features and extend it's life, how can we expect anything else from CORSAIR... ?
