Corsair Force GS 240 GB Review
3 February 2014
Summary: The pricing of the Corsair Force GS is: 180GB – Rs.12,500 240GB – Rs.15,300 360GB – Rs. 23,000 480GB – Rs. 32,000 If you’ve been keeping track of the prices of SSDs, you’ll notice that a 240GB SSD now costs as much as a 120GB one would a few months ago. A capacity of 240GB is sufficient to hold the operating system along with all programs and game installations. You can use a hard drive to store other data such as your media library and other files.
Summary: The performance of Corsair’s Force Series Solid-State Drives is absolutely amazing. Matching a good SSD with your powerful rig really shows off just how fast a computer can be. While 40GB is enough to install Windows 7 and many applications, you still have to make some compromises. Users with small SSDs who want to boot from them will find themselves moving their User folders, virtual memory, and other operating files to a magnetic drive.
Summary: Corsair's Force F40 drive sits at the lower spectrum of the SSD capacity carousel. With just 40 GB, the drives most probable use will be as a fast operating system boot drive with a couple of applications on it. With recent games taking up up to 10 GB of space there may even be some capacity left for one title that you are currently playing but that's it.
Pros: Low price, Good performance, Supports TRIM, 3 Year warranty, Nice looking, rugged metal case
Cons: Limited capacity, Price difference to bigger drives (50 / 60 GB) is small, Real-life performance not as impressive as synthetic, Lower performance than other Sandforce drives
Excerpt: Corsair is perhaps best known for producing performance computer memory, but the company also makes an impressive number of SSDs, one of which is the Force Series F120: a 120GB SSD based around the super-fast Sandforce memory controller. One of the most important components of any SSD, the memory controller manages reading, writing and erasing data to and from the flash storage.
Summary: Il Corsair Force LS è un SSD che si fa apprezzare per la buona qualità costruttiva, per i materiali utilizzati e per le finiture, tutti aspetti che il produttore californiano cura sempre in modo maniacale.
Purtroppo, dal punto di vista delle prestazioni, l'accoppiata costituita dal controller Phison e Toggle NAND Flash Toshiba, pur coadiuvate da un abbondante quantitativo di cache, continua a non convincere.
Excerpt: Corsair er en SSD-leverandør som har basert seg på kontrollerteknologi fra et bredt spekter av aktører de tre siste årene – Marvell, Samsung, Indilinx og LSI Sandforce. I tillegg har selskapet annonsert SSD-er basert på kontrollere fra LAMD som skal være leveringsklare om ikke lenge.
