Summary: A minor gripe, but if you're using all of the SATA cables that came with your motherboard and don't have any other spares you'll have to buy one separately as this drive does not include one in the box.
Pros: Includes a 3.5” mounting tray, so no need to spend extra ordering one separately if you're installing in a desktop system; 240GB (223 usable) is just about right for an operating system, applications, and a handful or two of cherry-picked games; Fast sequential reads/writes; Fast random 4KB reads/writes for “snappy” day-to-day OS/application performance; 3-year warranty.
Cons: As of writing this it's shipping with firmware v5.02 which has broken TRIM functionality. Without TRIM there will be some performance degradation over time, but I'd say the vast majority of users are unlikely to notice it outside of benchmarks (i.e. in actual day-to-day usage). Corsair has released a new version of the firmware (v5.03) that restores TRIM functionality which you can update to through a relatively painless flashing process, just be sure to read the inst...
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: 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...
Summary: Habe diese SSD für mein Lifebook P770 gekauft. Was soll man groß berichten, bisher gibt es keine Probleme. Windows 7 ist nach 16 sek einsatzbereit, kein Vergleich zur ursprünglichen 320GB HDD, und die SSD spart nebenbei noch Strom. Die lediglich in synthetischen Benchmarks feststellbaren Performancedefizite vom asynchronen Flashspeicher kann man als Normalanwender getrost vergessen. Unter'm Strich eine empfehlenswerte SSD!
