Product Description

Step up to the SSD capacity you really need with a Corsair Force Series 3 480GB SATA 6Gb/s solid-state drive. Your system responds better, boots quicker, and loads applications faster. Ideal for notebooks, Corsair SSDs run cooler and quieter than traditional hard drives, using less power.

From the Manufacturer

Want the fastest SSDs that Corsair makes? Choose Force Series GT.

Force Series GT SSD
Corsair SSDs are 2.5" wide, the same size as notebook hard drives. An adapter is included for mounting in standard desktop PC 3.5" drive bays.
Built for speed.

You probably already know that solid-state drives are fast. With up to 85,000 IOPS and read speeds of up to 555Mb/s, Force Series GT is on another level. Whether you're building the ultimate gaming PC, a monster of a video or photo editing workstation, or you simply crave serious solid state storage performance, this is the SSD you want.

Real-world performance.

All the impressive performance numbers translate to this: disk operations up to four times faster than the fastest mechanical hard drives. Starting up your PC, launching applications, loading and saving large files and documents, and just about everything else you do with your PC is faster when you remove the bottleneck of old-fashioned hard drives.

The Force Series GT is particularly adept at moving compressed data. You'll appreciate this real-world benefit if you work with music, movie and graphics files.

Compatible with SATA 2 3Gb/s.

Haven't yet moved to SATA 3? Like all Corsair components, Force Series GT SSDs are designed to last through several system upgrades. Adding a Force Series GT today means that you'll still get incredible storage performance now, and you'll tap into its full performance potential with your next upgrade.

Corsair SSDs: Designed for Performance and Durability

TRIM Support

Force Series GT SSDs feature support for the Windows® 7 TRIM command. This allows them to store only the data they need and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.

Reliability

Because SSDs have no moving parts, they can handle shock, vibration and temperature changes far in excess of mechanical hard drives. That's important for desktop PCs, and essential for notebooks.

Cool and Quiet, with Low Power Consumption

Traditional mechanical hard drives spin at thousands of revolutions per minute. This takes power, and generates noise and heat. Since SSDs have no moving parts, there's no noise or vibration, and the lower power consumption helps keep things cool inside your PC.

3.5" adapter

The 2.5" form factor allows for installation in most notebook PCs with no adapter required. If you're adding a Force Series GT SSD to your desktop PC, use the included 3.5" adapter to mount it in any standard hard drive bay.

Awesome product, just do yourself a favor and follow this setup to prevent errors and headaches.

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.

So, let me first say that I bought this as an upgrade from an OCZ Vertex II 60 GB. I did so for two reasons. First, after having owned the Vertex for about a year, I had found 60GB to be grossly inadequate. 55GB formated, and about 10 of that gets sucked up by the OS. Add in Office, CS4, and some other essential apps, and you're staring right at that 55 GB cap. I'm not an idiot - I know not to store music, photos, videos etc. on an SSD and I have a 1 TB portable external for all that. But add a game or two on top of the OS and the essential apps, and you've more than filled up 55 gigs. The second reason I bought the GT was the SATA III speeds --- a very impressive 555 MB/s Read and 515 MB/s Write (those are advertised speeds). Once I got the SSD (about two days ago), I installed it into one of my mobo's (I have a P8P67 Pro) INTEL Sata III ports. Please note the "INTEL" -- the INTEL Sata III's are always the best to use as they can harness full SATA III 6 Gbps speeds, whereas the MARVELL controller works via PCI-E x1, which only operates at 5 Gbps. Also, I have read online that this drive *MAY* give you problems if you have a MARVELL controller. Corsair, in my experience, is a great company, and they and Marvell should figure this issue out soon and fix it via driver update, I'd think.

---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.

I had waited long to buy a SSD Unit, I was looking for a 120GB or 128GB size as I think is enough room for the OS and a lot of applications. I read all the reviews I found on tech review sites, I compared this unit to other brands and arrived to the following conclusions:

- 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.

Before buying this drive, I spent dozens of hours doing research on which one's the fastest, best, the best 'bang-for-the buck', most reliable, etc. Lots of work, but well worth it! This is, without a doubt, the best thing you can do to REALLY speed up your PC! My 'cold' start-up time has gone from over a minute and a half down to LESS THAN 10 SECONDS! I have a brand new, very fast Asus CM6850-07 with the top-of-the line Intel processor, but the supplied WD drive was junk, so I got this Corsair SSD to replace the WD drive as primary. WOW!!! Opening Office software such as Excel, Word, and Powerpoint is INSTANTANEOUS! SSDs are the way of the future no-doubt, and will quickly replace rotating disc HARD drives, which will go the way of the 'Dodo Bird' and other obsolete devices, such as floppy drives, CRT monitors, 'tape backups', Beta and VHS tapes! Why? SSDs have no moving parts, no sound, are nowhere near as fragile as conventional drives, generate much less heat,require much less power, and they are FAST, VERY, VERY FAST!!! Did I mention they are FAST!? I was so impressed, that I bought the Corsair Force 180GB SATA 3 for my wife's laptop! Her PC is now, at least 10 TIMES faster, probably more! When doing a backup or a defrag, these drives are unbelievably speedy; I'd say much more than 10 times faster. These drives definitely FAR EXCEED our expectations! Don't waste your time with anything else...just get a Corsair SSD. You will NOT be disappointed.
