  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSD’s translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
  • newegg Better Performance Built with MLC NAND flash and the latest generation SandForce SF1200 controller featuring award winning DuraClass Technology, the Corsair Force Series F90 SSD (CSSD-F90GB2-BRKT) delivers world-class SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency, with maximum sequential read speed of 285 MB/s and maximum sequential write speed of 275 MB/s, plus incredible random 4K write performance of 50,000 IOPS (4K aligned).
  • newegg TRIM Support The Corsair Force Series SSD’s offer TRIM support than can be enabled in Windows 7. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command. To learn how to enable TRIM support in Windows 7, visit: http://blog.corsair.com/?p=3468.
  • newegg 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included The Corsair Force Series F90 SSD is specifically designed for notebook computers coming in a 2.5-inch hard drive form factor.

2 out of 5 eggsThe Struggle is over

Pros: Trim support easily enabled.
Acronis True Image made it possible to clone my out of space boot drive onto this drive.

Cons: No cloning software.
Third unit was the first to initialize.
Windows 7 Image system failed as I tried to use it to create a clone of my 64GB boot drive.
Apricorn's EZGig III & IV was unable to clone onto this drive hung at 27%.

Other Thoughts: Do not understand why I was the only reviewer to encounter the difficulties. I was the first to review this product and have struggled with it for months. I was already shopping for a replacement when I remembered the Acronis software I had purchased over a year ago. Corsair's RMA procedure costs must be high if more people experience my problems. Had to do normal formats to wipe it clean after each fail.

5 out of 5 eggsRight now its 5 stars, let's wait and see.

Pros: Incredibly fast. Barely sips energy.

Cons: Not much space, a little pricey (but considering SSD's not bad). Fear of complete utter failure and data loss.

Other Thoughts: Corsair, if this drive fails on me within 12 months, this 5 star review turns into a 1 star horror story of frustration, misery, anguish, and disgust.

4 out of 5 eggsHey Buttons all drive's have that issue with space misreporting

Pros: 1

Cons: 1

Other Thoughts: All drives say larger then MS Windows registers because of a difference in how manufacturers count Gb compared to how Windows counts Gb.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, fast, fast

Pros: I love SSD and would recommend for anyone. Super fast. Normally takes over 30 min to install OS but not with SSD. Entire OS was installed well under 10 min. Very responsive and works great. I click and things happen almost instantly. I should mention my machine has 12 gigs Ram which probably plays a factor. Either way, this drive is fast.

Cons: SSD is still moderately new so it's kind of expensive. I wish I got a larger size drive.

Other Thoughts: You should buy one. You won't be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely took my gaming and pc to the TOP!

Pros: Corsair dominating customer service and support
Size- same size as a credit card just thicker..no joke
Heat-there isn't any
SPEED! Windows 7 installed in 5 minutes
SPEED! Windows boots in 10 second, and shuts down in 4 seconds
All programs load instantly on start up
My games are so faster now it's....it's amazing. There is no comparison. By far the best upgrade I have made in the last ten years

Cons: The first drive I recieved was opened, the seal was opened, and the baggies inside was ripped open.. in other words I got an open box for retail price

Other Thoughts: On the good side, this is newegg.com, I called into newegg and the representative sincerely apologized for the error, and sent me a new one next day air, and even gave me a 25.00 coupon for my hassle. Seriously newegg, I will never buy another pc component from anywhere but here. I love your dedication and support to the customers.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair dominates all competition with their warranty

Pros: Corsairs Elite Warranty and Support Services

Cons: I have not received it yet...lol

Other Thoughts: I just wanted to say I made this purchase yesterday with Corsair&Newegg because of their TOP NOTCH customer service and warranty. I have never had a problem with getting an item replaced with the advanced rma option. Your phone call is always answered in less than a minute, always clear English spoken representatives. Their support is so superior than any other vendor I have gone through, I knew I would buy a Corsair SSD. No question at all :)
Thank you Corsair for going the extra mile with every single customer you gain.

Will post my second review concerning performance in a few weeks.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Lightning fast. I have all my software loaded on this drive, applications and games load very quickly and run smooth while in use. 64 bit windows, photoshop, and maya love it. 90gb was the sweet spot for me, still have plenty of room for more software.

Cons: Pricey for the amount of storage you get. the trade off is the speed and stability, and i definitely think it's worth it!

Other Thoughts: My setup:
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
ASUS M4A89TD PRO/USB3 Motherboard
A-DATA Gaming Series 4GB DDR3 RAM
HIS Radeon HD 6870
Corsair Force 90GB Solid State Drive
Samsung Spinpoint 1TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive
HP Multiformat DVD Writer
Corsair 650W Modular Power Supply
Lancool PC-K62
Creative T3130 Speakers
Logitech G9x Mouse
Logitech G110 Keyboard
ASUS 21.5" 5ms 1080P LCD Monitor
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: Works well and it's very fast.

1 out of 5 eggsNO SOFTWARE

Pros: good price

Cons: this is my 6th SSD. They brag about improving startup time, but do not supply software to clone your boot drive onto the SSD. Only supplier in my experiance not to do so. Lacking this add $30 to the price to equalize it with the competition.

4 out of 5 eggsFast SSD

Pros: Sandforce controller, extremely high IOPS, read and writes.

Cons: 83gb is not 90gb, this is why I gave it four stars. I ended up paying $1.73 per GB

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive because i wanted a tad more space then 80gb but didnt want to pay for a 120gb SSD. I was disappointed to see it registers as 83gb instead of 90gb. My OCZ agility was a 60gb SSD and registered as 59.x GB

I installed this into my gateway NV53 laptop. Windows boots up from power on to logged into windows in about 16 seconds. World of Warcraft logs in 8 seconds vs 29 seconds with my old drive. Everything is very snappy now.

ATTO benchmark shows 275mb reads 245mb writes. windows 7 scored the drive as 7.6 (AHCI mode enabled)
