RMA = Returned Merchandise Authorization.

Complete the form. Send us your drive. We will send you a replacement drive.

if you RMA through Corsair, ask for an advanced RMA.

Advanced RMA = they send the replacement first (and place a hold on your credit card). That way you get it faster than a normal RMA, and as you said, you needed ASAP for work, correct?

Are you kidding me?

Should I send the drive to you everytime a new firmware comes out?

Fix the firmware updater!

I have the 90 and 240Gb versions and as it is right now, I cannot use either one. When connected, the computer works fine for a day or two and then the screen goes blank and the drives can no longer be seen. Running from a harddrive, the system works ok for weeks.

I've always used intel SSDs in the past and this is my first experience with Corsairs SSDs and you ask me to send it to you before I even have a chance to use it.

I only have two questions really. Are you going to fix the updater or should I return my drives for Intel ones?

Default Not again ...!

This Corsair SSD Force 256GB 3 is my second SSD from Corsair. The first was a Corsair Force 120GB. It ceased to function, however, so I complained about it to the supplier (INET AB). They wrote that they would first test the disk, and then decide whether they approved the claim or not. In the meantime, I would thus be left without the opportunity to use the computer! I was then forced to immediately buy a disk to (Corsair 256GB SSD Force 3) to avoid being stranded without a computer and updates to my site.
Now did my supplier back to me after I sent them a link to this topic and description of the problem:
----------------------
Hi there,

Please report it to www.inet.se tab support. Follow the instructions on our website.

We will take the hard drive to us for testing and repair / replacement of a defect can be verified.

Sincerely
Peter Carlsson
techniques
(INET AB).
----------------------
I do not know if I should laugh or cry. Under present circumstances, I obviously do not recommend a purchase of Corsair SSD drives.

I completely agree with the former comment. - Fix the firmware updater!

Thanks / Tomas

This computer industry is acting immature. They can continue this because almost all customers are more or less dependent on them. What other industry would be able to deliver semi-finished products and then let the customer manage the test run, after which the provider alone to determine if the product defect is of the nature of the product to be replaced, the same product, but with the past, existing customers proven, change?
