  • 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 controller, the Corsair Force Series F240-A delivers world-class SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency, with maximum sequential read speed of 280 MB/s and maximum sequential write speed of 270 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 featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. 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.
  • newegg 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included The Corsair Force Series features a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. A 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket is included with the SSD for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD for older systems

Pros: Perfect for motherboards with SATA-II controllers that run at 3.0 Gb/sec.

Cons: May run into compatability problems, but this is because the technology was not completely implemented when older boards were made. Can usually be resolved with BIOS updates.

Other Thoughts: Rognin seems to be confusing the different terms for SATA. SATA-II=3.0 GB/sec, SATA-III=6.0 GB/sec. This drive is an SATA-II drive with maximum throughput of 3.0 GB/sec. There is no reason to get an SATA-III drive if your motherboard does not support that technology, though it would work fine, and could later be connected to a board that does support it for better performance.

4 out of 5 eggsGood drive

Pros: When it came out and Sata 3.0 (cause saying Sata II is wrong!) hadn't hit the shelves, this thing was a beast. I read on all the corsair forums and others about the hibernation problems. I've had this thing for a couple months now and it works great.

Cons: Price, and outdated tech with the new Sata 3.0's out at around the same prices.

Other Thoughts: Get a Sata 3.0 SSD.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, but it's an SSD, so what do you expect?

Cons: Motherboard had a few issues with recognizing it as a boot device, but I'm holding Windows as the main culprit on that one.
