Cons: Died right after the warranty ran out. Very disappointed in this SSD and Corsair for their lack of quality control on these. I will be going with the company that rhymes with Ramsung from here on.
Cons: Ordered 2 - on DOA as far as I am concerned. Only one has worked reliably, the other never shows up on any bios I've attempted to connect it to. Hardly any use on the remaining drive and I see symptoms of failing. I really expected more from corsair but I'll be looking elsewhere for my next ssd.
Summary: I am confused as to the probability of 3 dead drives.
Pros: Nice light drives.
Cons: All 3 drives that I ordered are not recognized by the computers I am using here. I have tried in 2 different Dell laptops and a desktop HP. In all cases, the BIOS will not recognize the drives. Even using a USB to SATA cable shows nothing. BIOS set to ACHI, etc...

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.
Summary: I have several other Corsair products in various systems which have been trouble free. Corsair shouldn't be judged on the failure of an SSD.
Pros: As an SSD it is fast and quiet. Just what you should expect.
Cons: Built a new small system with this as my C: drive. Died without warning after 10 months. Spent much diagnosis time and system recovery attempts but eventually had to admit my C: drive was dead and the SSD was not recognizable to the system. Corsair's RMA process was handled well and drive replace...
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS SSD. I bought one Corsair Force Series 3 90GB for use in my Thinkpad T61. It had the latest firmware (5.05) out of the box. After installing a fresh copy of Windows 7, it runs ok for a few hours. Then I noticed that every 20 min or so, it froze the computer for 1-2 min.
Summary: EVEN MY 2 CHEAP Kingston IS STILL WORKING
Pros: was fast -
Cons: died without any warning at all - BIOS wont even recognize it.. Data lost.. NEVER EVER IN 25 + YEARS SEEN A DRIVE JUST DIE WITHOUT ANY WARNING OR TIME TO BACKUP will not buy another SSD from this bran
