SSD's ARE COOL

Summary: Some things are faster and others not so much. Boot times are much faster. Nice thing about this whole adventure was a lesson learned. Even before Windows was completely setup I logged into Google Chrome. Guess what - all of my stuff was there just the way I had left it. And I didn't have 300+ updates to load either. I find my self using Chrome more and more everyday.
Pros: Very Fast Good software from suppliers website 120 GB is plenty since I store everything in the cloud Needs a 2 1/2 adapter for 2 12 in drive bay but worked around this annoyance.
Cons: Cloning software did NOT span multiple partitions for me. Therefor had to re install Windows and all 300+ updates. Shipping took 9 working days since USPS since the package to the wrong city.
So far so good. Didn't get the BLAZING SPEED everyone keeps talking ...

Summary: So far so good. Didn't get the BLAZING SPEED everyone keeps talking about - but it is faster. Forgot this part - DOES NOT COME WITH A SATA CABLE!!! Not sure why I just assumed it would, but I did. So I had to go back to ole Amazon and order one of those. Don't be dumb like me and have to wait a few more days to get your system backup and running.
Pros: It's a nice SSD that I picked up for a nice price during a sale. It is incredibly fast in comparison to an old 1TB HDD I was using previously. If you're looking to make the move to SSD on a budget, this is a great drive.
Cons: Though it is faster than a HDD, it is slower than higher quality SSDs. I recently purchased a Samsung 840 EVO and it blows the Corsair Force LS out of the water. Read/Write times on the Corsair are less than half that of the Samsung drive.
Summary: works well so far. recognized immediately by the system. I used Macrium Reflect (free) to image the original Win 8.1 system and restore/migrate it to the new SSD. It's a good idea to shut down the system immediately after completing an OS migration and remove the original HDD. Then re-start with just the new SSD and check out the OS to make sure it's 'all good'. Then shut down, add back the original HDD to use for data storage and/or as a back-up OS.
Pros: OK SSD for the price, but not as fast as the Samsung SSDs I own. I bought it for my wife's new Acer laptop and for that purpose it is fine. I like the fact that Corsair already has over provisioning built into their drives - a nice feature. Another plus is that it is 7mm so the fit in the laptop was perfect.
Cons: As I said, it is not as fast as the Samsungs I own, but it was much cheaper.
