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 3 120GB SSD Review

 

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 3 120GB SSD review

 

Whatever SATA 3 based product is being thrown at us, we seem to be impressed with. And you know, it's just that we are not used to seeing such incredible speeds as we've been in that SATA 2 HDD domain for way too long. The Force 3 series SSD is again 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 Force Series 120GB SandForce SF-1200 SSD Review

 

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...

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...

On May 16th, Corsair turned the enthusiast SSD market on its ear by announcing their new Force 3 series of drives. In and of itself, the Force 3
