First time ever using a SSD for anything and I have to say the Corsair Force GS has made a good impression thus far. I'm currently using it as the boot drive and the time for it to start up is amazingly fast. Also all the programs I have installed (including Windows itself) have been at a much quicker rate than I had expected. So I decided to benchmark the SSD to see what read/write speeds it could achieve.

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.

Bought this drive because I wanted more speed from my system. I work a lot with Photoshop, 3d rendering packages, etc. and have a good fast processor, video card, and plenty of memory, so the bottleneck for the system became the hard drive. I had a pretty decent mechanical drive before - a WD black SATA III with a 64mb cache - but when I ran tests on my system it was by far and unsuprisingly, the slowest thing in there. So, using some birthday money from the in-laws plus some cash I'd put aside, I bought this drive. Using Ghost, I copied my old drive over (even though it was bigger, I was only actually using about 200GB) and was up and running quickly.

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.

After doing a statistical comparison of feedback numbers for several brands from Amazon and Newegg I went with Corsair which had the highest percentage of positive feedback for the 2 top responses(4-5), at 92% and the lowest 2 responses(1-2) at about 4%. That being said, I own several brands of SSD's and the only one I have had to RMA was a corsair but corsair replaced it with no problems so they get high fives on their RMA process and customer service.

When researching SSDs a few years ago I'd read that they had a finite lifespan, especially when running constantly and at high capacity. I even had some friends warn me not to keep anything important on this drive. I really wanted the best performance possible in my Dell XPS 15z laptop and was willing to pay the premium for a larger drive since I only had one available drive bay. The Corsair Force SSD has been nothing but a pleasure since I installed it in my previous laptop close to three years ago. My wife now uses that 'old' laptop and I bought a new, identical drive to put in my new Dell XPS15.

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.

Here is a short video showing the boot speed of this drive using Windows 7, a new Core i5 3rd gen processor and 16gb of RAM. I hit the shift key instead of the enter key the first time, so only count the boot speed once the screen actually changes to the normal Windows boot screen. Thanks! Really no other "reviewing" is necessary other than saying that I had to install Win 7 on my old style regular hard drive first, then format the SSD, then reinstall Win 7 onto it, then format the old style drive as I dont need 2 copies of windows. This thing is really fast as you can tell! This is a hard boot from a computer that was off.

I have had very good luck with these Corsair Force GS drives. I've used both the 128 and 240GB models without any issue at all. These SSD's have amazing performance and seem to be very reliable. I swapped out several failing OCZ Vertex's, which were crap, with these and immediately saw improvements in both performance and reliability. I'll continue using these whenever I have the choice.

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.
