Summary: Corsair had recalled this item back in 2011, bewarned. [...] In their words...... CORSAIR FORCE SERIES 3 UPDATE, JUNE 7, 2011 Over the past several days, we have analyzed issues associated with the stability of our recently released 120GB Force Series 3 SSD. Our review has identified that a significant percentage of these drive do not operate to specifications. The solution will require changes to both the SSD firmware and the hardware components of the SSD itself.
Summary: That is the fastest SATA2 drive I could select for the system I have built (a quad processor, 64 core motherboard based HPC). The other choice is a Cheetah 15K.7 SAS 6GB/s drive. If this SSD(s) is combined into a RAID0, then it will pretty fast.
Summary: I guess for the price, this is what you pay for. I'm already out of the 30 warranty, so I guess I'll look into a brand new SSD from a different manufacturer.
Pros: Great Price, solid performance. Very fast transfer speeds. Very good bang for your buck SSD drive for laptops or desktops. Just make sure you have a spare drive to store all your pictures and/or multimedia files.
Cons: The SSD started to BSOD on me. This is a new rig, so all hardware is new.
Summary: I sent it back as an RMA Replacement to New Egg and they lost my broken SSD, which was sent in the exact same box as another RMA that was accepted by them. Now they're refusing to give me my money back. I have been shopping with them for almost 10 years now and this is the first time I have ever had to return anything to them, after this experience I won't be shopping with them anymore.
Cons: -Died at the beginning of a Windows 7 installation and afterwards the drive could not be recognized. It worked for may be about 10-15 at most before it died. I tried installing it on other machines and also through a usb-sata adapter, none of them worked.
