Specifications, Pricing and Availability
The official name for the Corsair Nova 128GB drive is CSSD-V128GB2-BRKT. The ECO controller is just like the standard Barefoot except that it allows for more flexibility with the flash memory used. The Nova has a 64 MB cache module and also the SATA II interface.
Corsair claims a read speed of 270MB/s and a write speed of 195MB/s. As per the normal these days, the Nova supports TRIM in Windows 7 and unlike other manufacturers low cost drives based on the JMicron controller, supports NCQ.
Corsair is issuing a 2 year warranty with the Nova Series, but the drive should last you much longer than that. Modern MLC flash is capable of many more write commands than drives a few years ago, but I have yet to hear about a failure due to even the most extreme usage.
As mentioned previously, the Nova brings with it a new price for this class of drive. With the Force taking up the 400+ USD category, the Indilinx Barefoot drives have fallen to the 330-380 range; good news for those looking to get their first taste of solid state goodness. Newegg currently has the 128GB Corsair Nova for 339.99 USD and the 64GB drive for 189.99 USD. At these prices it will be difficult for the enthusiast community to hold out on SSD technology, but we will let you decide on that one for yourself.
Let's take a look at everything that is included with the Corsair Nova package and then get to the benchmarks.
