From the Manufacturer
Experience up to 50K IOPS random write speeds with a 480GB Corsair Force Series GS SSD. Powered by SandForce SF-2200 Series controllers and fast Toggle NAND, they deliver blazing fast sequential read and write speeds plus strong random writes for impressive real-world performance.
Force Series GS Solid-State Drives: Speed for the Real World
Force Series GS solid-state drives are powered by a SandForce SF-2200 SSD Processor and fast Toggle NAND memory for both fast sequential read/write speeds and strong random write speed for impressive real-world performance.
Fast in a Straight Line, Fast in the Curves
Benchmarks are great, but your PC doesn’t run on benchmarks. Force Series GS has the scores, and the real-world performance to back it up.
Some SSDs are strong performers with sequential read and write speeds, but bog down with random writes. Force Series GS is better. It’s great at both.
Works Even Better with the Latest Systems
Force Series GS supports SATA 3 6Gb/s, so you’ll get superior performance from newer notebook and desktop PCs that use the newest standard. It's also fully backward compatible with SATA 2.
Superior Sequential Read and Write Speeds
The first key to real performance is sequential read and write speeds. You’ll feel the speed when you’re loading and saving large files. Solid-state drives store files in contiguous blocks of memory, so you’ll get nearly instantaneous response when you click that “Load” or “Save” button.
Excellent Random Write Performance
Fast random write speeds are also critical to performance you’ll notice on a daily basis. If you’re running multiple applications at once, odds are that they’re writing small bits of data to the drive with regularity. The fast Toggle NAND memory gives Force Series GS the agility to handle them all without slowing down.
Maintains its Performance Over Time
Force Series GS solid-state drives support 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.
Because SSDs have no moving parts, they can handle shock, vibration and temperature changes far in excess of traditional 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. It can also save battery life on notebooks.

Note: I am using the ASRock z77 Extreme 4 mobo and an Intel i5-2500k Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz CPU. The SSD is plugged into the SATA3 Intel Controller at 6gb/s.
Using the exact same benchmarking program as Corsair, ATTO Disk Benchmark, and the same parameters that they used, I was able to achieve ~557Mb/s for Read and ~532Mb/s Write. While it is a minuscule amount, I got read and write speeds that were above the advertised speeds, which is a definite plus in my books.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and with what Corsair has done with the SSD, definitely recommend it.
Wow, what difference! Photoshop loads in 3 seconds now instead of 32, Daz studio is up and running in about 7 or 8, Excel 2012 in .4 (yes, that's 4 tenths of a second), Word in a 1.5 seconds. Games run snappier too - they load faster, sure, but many games (at least the MMOs and RTS games I play) can be fairly disk intensive when playing and they've seen a nice pop as well. In the many years I've been playing with computers (since the 70s), this is the single most impressive single-component upgrade I've done since my first hard drive all those years ago.
The other great thing about this drive is how simple and easy it was to work with - it's light, it uses very little power, no special drivers or other twiddling required, just load and go. It's about as easy as it comes.
Well, long story short: same deal. Instant start-up, super-fast throughput and solid reliability under constant, heavy use is why Corsair is my goto brand for these drives. I've used OCZ drives with no issue, but, at the time I was shopping around, Corsair had the better price on higher capacity drives, so I took a chance. No regrets and I'll not likely change brands any time soon.
I have redundant backups on all of my systems in as many as 3 different online/offline locations, but, unlike with my platter drives before, I've never had even the slightest hiccup in the years that I've been using this SSD. Well done, Corsair.

I only benchmarked the 240GB model, but the benchmarks aligned with the speeds that Corsair claims. Using SATA 3 6Gbps rather than 3Gbps made a significant performance difference as well.
