1) Install your new SSD to an open SATA port (SATA 6Gb/s if you have it) on your computer first (before doing anything else) UPDATE the firmware. Corsair's firmware is in their forums, but this has to be done before doing a clean OS install.
2) Reboot into your BIOS and ENABLE AHCI under your SATA options (typically it's set to IDE)... this HAS to be done or else you'll see errors like others have mentioned.
3) Secure Erase the SSD
4) Install a clean version of Windows 7 (& ensure TRIM and AHCI are enabled in the registry)
After install I experienced 556 MB/s read and 493 MB/s write. It's just as fast as the OCZ Vertex 3 IMHO. This drive will not disappoint. MTBF of 2,000,000 hours and 3-year warranty to boot.
---IMPORTANT--- (added 1-21-2012): Before going any further, I just want to quickly share with you all a little bit of information. As you may or may not know, Corsair makes a sister-product line, the "Force 3" series. The Force 3 series uses asynchronous flash and the Force GT series uses synchronous flash. The Force GT (120GB version) also costs about $10 more than the Force 3 (120 GB version). This is me telling you to pay the extra and buy this product (the Force GT) and NOT the Force 3.Read more ›
Everything you've heard about their performance effect is true; SSD's especially the newer SATA III ones with a good IOPS and read/write speeds are just unreal (>55000,>450/400). Applications launch instantly and boot times are negligible (7 second cold boots) from bootloader to working desktop with auto-login and services loaded. All daemons are launched at boot and not held till the OS is loaded, really just a plain install. Ram improvements are always touted very highly but most people don't exceed 4GB and most modern processors are adequate. The real performance bottleneck is the HDD nowadays and replacing it with a SSD shows instant notable improvements. It's truly just a creepy experience and the thing is - unlike most upgrades - the effect is extremely noticeable to the end user. I know the price is high but dropping for one of these for a new laptop or desktop is a must. The biggest thing is older hardware don't have SATA III so don't bother with it on SATA II, rather get a OCZ Vertex 2 (really cheap now) which does a decent job saturating it's bandwidth.
TRIM and AHCI are a must so please ensure they are enabled from the beginning (operating system and bios + kernel). On linux(kernels >2.Read more ›
- Crucial m4: Not so reliable after the recent BSOD issue, more expensive.
- Samsung 830: Similar performance, reliable but more expensive.
- Ocz Vertex 3 MIOPS: Stellar performance, unsure of reliability.
- Ocz Octane: Slower performance for 120G unit, 512GB too expensive.
- Intel 510: Solid reliability, but slower and way more expensive.
- Adata s511: Similar to Vertex3 but more expensive.
So after considering all this units I came to the conclusion that the best 120GB unit as of right now was the SandForce based Corsair Force GT for $174.99, I was a little concerned about the BSOD issues, but with the firmware v1.3.3 every thing is resolved now. A couple of months ago I got a new DELL E6520 laptop at work which came with a good 320GB WD Caviar Black, but I wanted to experience the speed that SSDs offer, and I got to tell you wow! what a mayor difference this new technology makes! my win7 boot time went from 1min 30sec down to 30sec... I was desperate to test this baby so I used Acronis True Image Home 2012 (which I got to make image backups of my WD drive) to clone my HDD, it only took 8min to clone my 30GB full system to the Force GT.
It's been a week now since I cloned my drive and I just love the performance this SSD has to offer, I now keep my WD as a second drive for all other data with Shared eSATA Cable for 2.5" SATA Laptop Hard Drive.Read more ›
