Corsair Force Series 3 120GB Solid-State Drive


The SSD market has finally gotten traction and that can be seen by the number of solid state drives being sold these days. However, there's still something lacking. Most of the drives being sold aren't performance-oriented drives. They are quicker...

So, should buy this drive? We think so. Priced at Rs. 10,499, the Corsair Force 3 120GB strikes a very good balance between speed and capacity. It’s roughly the same performance as the last Plextor drive we reviewed. Although, the capacity of this...

SandForce TRIM Issue & Corsair Force Series GS (240GB) Review


SandForce and TRIM—that has always been a tricky combination. SandForce SSDs have always behaved a bit differently when tortured and TRIM'ed due to their internal design. When a non-SandForce SSD is tortured, write speed degrades and sooner than later...

I may sound like a broken record but all SandForce SSDs except Intel's are more or less the same. While there are small variations in performance, the big picture is still alike. You have a few NAND choices but most manufacturers offer SSDs based on...

Corsair Force Series 3 and Force Series GT SSD Full Review


We'll carry the Patriot Pyro (IMFT Async) into the results for comparison, and keeping the other benchmark OCZ and Intel models in with the mix of results. The OCZ Vertex 3 and Agility 3 will again share the same SandForce controller, but OCZ has been...

Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD Review


We've already had a look at the Corsair 120GB Force 3 GT drive and now it's time to give the non-GT version a go on our test bench. These drives are virtually identical save for the type of NAND flash employed and a paint job. Will that make much of a...

While the GT version is a faster overall drive, the Force 3 120 GB drive is a solid offering from Corsair and at a price that is hard to beat.

Corsair Force Series F40 SATA II SSD Review


When SSDs arrived on the consumer scene, they hit with a bang. The numbers that we were able to achieve blew the average PC user's mind. Load times were cut to seconds and transfer speeds were able to actually meet some theoretical numbers. One of the...

Fast Performance and Transfer Speeds ; Decreased Boot and Launch Times ; 3 year Warranty ; TRIM Support (OS) ; Latest generation SandForce controller and MLC NAND flash ; Good OS or Intel RST Drive


To be honest, this is my first SSD ever. I have wanted one since their release, but they have always been out of my sensible price range. As of right now, they still are. The smaller drives, like the F40 seem like a teaser to me. They are right in a...

Corsair Force Series F180 180GB SSD


There are many varieties of Solid State Drives currently on the market but at the root of them all the best in class use Sandforce controllers. The Corsair Force Series F180 180GB SSD does just that. With 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write speed, it's a...

Fast performance – 284MB/s Read and 275MB/s Write ; Excellent 3 year warranty ; Mounting bracket included for older cases

I’m waiting for SATA 6G/s SSD

Picking a good hard drive is not an easy task. Everyone likes to focus on the fact that the CPU, Motherboard and RAM and make up the heart of the computer. I would argue that your hard drive is just as important if not more important. If you’re...

Corsair has upped the ante with their Force Series drives by cutting drive provisioning, allowing 20% more capacity to be used. This helps the price per usable GB but will this hurt performance? Read on to see how the Corsair Force 120GB SSD does...

If you had been thinking about picking up the Corsair Force 100GB SSD, the 120GB version should help make that purchasing decision a ton easier. With 20% more available storage, three year warranty, the same great performance and a price per GB ratio...

Corsair Force Series 100GB SandForce 1200 SSD Review


The specifications Corsair has listed for the Force Series 100GB SSD drive are 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write which is well above the 260MB/s read/write specified by Sandforce. Pretty high expectations are being set by Corsair. We put it through our...

Although drive capacity is below some of its peers, the Corsair Force 100GB SSD is certainly one of the fastest SATA II drives available today and shows just how good the Sandforce SF-1200 controller really is. If you are looking for one of the fastest...
