Pros: Its corsair quality. Very light! Great performance.
Cons: The biggest con I had with this thing was the fact the rated speeds would literally only reach in ATTO. Which is not a real world performance measure. SSDs can write compressed data better, but almost nothing that most people use is compressed (Music, Movies, Zip/Rar, & Games) So it is just not correct advertisement.
Summary: I am very pleased with this drive by Corsair. However the included bracket for a 3.5in mount (holes are too close for the rails to line up with the mounting holes in the bracket). Nothing that a dremel can't solve. I lined it up, drilled holes in the rails to match the bracket and now it just slides right in the 3.5 HDD bays. I have the Cooler Master Gladiator 600 case. I would highly recommend this or other Corsair sandforce drives, definately will purchase again.
Pros: This SSD is fast, ATTO shows 276-Read & 270-Write, so it is pretty much on the mark for the specs by corsair (corsair states 280-Read), It gets a 7.8 in WEI
Summary: I'm sure I'm just going to repeat a lot about how much difference an SSD makes to the responsiveness of a computer, so I'll just cut to the chase. The read and write performance is excellent - one of the best on the market. Remember that higher capacity gives higher performance, if you can afford it. However, I bought this one for a friend, and I have measured my own 120GB Force GT to be faster than the GS - so if you've got a little bit more to spend, go for that.
Summary: My red (much nicer looking) Force GT gets 5 stars, but this only 4. There are a few reasons; 1. The hard drive sometimes (rarely) freezes the computer for up to 5 seconds which my Force GT never did. 2. Temperature readings are 128℃ so there are no on board temperature readings available, unlike my Force GT 3. Appears to not be as fast as the Force GT despite having the same apparent Read/Write speeds (take with a inch of salt).
Summary: I wanted to upgrade my PC to windows 7, 64 bit and heard various tech reviews stating the benefits of Solid State Drives; It's worth mentioning I'm used being underwhelmed by upgrades, usually trading off a slower quieter device for a noisier, faster one: Just so I can improve the performance of the PC in one area with no noticeable improvement elsewhere, but this time around I'm impressed.
Worked immediately, big difference compared to old hdd

Summary: This has been my second chance on SSD. Before, I had ordered a OCZ Onyx, but it wasn't recognize (I tried on two PCs, I could have tried a tricky procedure to upgrade a firmware, but I didn't bother, so I returned it). I wanted a good SSD that ran out of the box, that I could fit in my shuttle xs35gt without troubles. Once fit, I turned on the pc and checked that the drive was well detected in the bios.
Summary: Efter att jag har formaterat min pc med meckanisk hårddisk, så har jag suttit många gånger och väntad på att det ska ladda alla filer men tyvär på ett mycket trögt sätt. När jag fik tak i min nya SSD hårddisk, så förendrade alt sig. Denna SSD Corsair hårddisk från Force Series levererade långt över mina förväntningar. Denna SSD hårddisk kan jag anbefala på det stärkaste. Den är snabb...
