Step Up to Solid-State Speed with Force Series 3


One of the best PC performance investments you can make.

You'll be amazed at the improvement over traditional hard drive access times the first time you turn on your computer, and for virtually everything you do with your PC. System startup, game and application load times, file loading, data transfers, and even shutdown times are all faster.

Your system will be more responsive, and you'll be more productive.

Add up all the time you spend all day waiting for your computer — starting up, loading game levels, saving large files and documents, and just moving data around — and it can be significant.

Using a PC can be a lot more enjoyable when it's not always making you wait.



The power of SATA 3 6Gb/second performance


The SATA 3 connection on the Force Series 3 offers up to 6Gb/s speed vs. SATA 2 drives that top out at 3Gb/s.

Great for the latest high-performance PCs.

There's fast, and then there's fast. Force Series 3 SSDs have even quicker read and write times when they're installed in PCs that use the latest SATA 3 interface.

Compatible with SATA 2 3Gb/s.

Haven't yet moved to SATA 3? Like all Corsair components, Force Series 3 SSDs are designed to last through several system upgrades. Adding a Force Series 3 today means that you'll still get incredible storage performance now, and your SSD will be ready for your next upgrade.

Force Series 3: Get more for less.

Choosing a Force Series 3 SSD helps your computing budget go farther. Powered by the SandForce SF-2200 controller, they deliver outstanding SATA 3 6Gb/s performance, with prices that are comparable to lower-performance SATA 2 3Gb/s solid-state drives.

Corsair SSDs: Designed for Performance and Durability


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.

TRIM Support

Force Series 3 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.


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.

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 3 SSD to your desktop PC, use the included 3.5" adapter to mount it in any standard hard drive bay.

1 out of 5 eggsextremely disappointed.

Pros: 1 worked just long enough to make it passed the 30 days.

Cons: Bought 2 drives thinking it was a steal.. 1st one was DOA, second 1 died today and now I'm writing this review.

Very disappointed in whoever does the quality control to "certify" these SSDs. I've only purchased $amsung 840/850s and this has made me realized why.

A poor man can't afford cheap things. Do yourself a favor and buy something new and reliable. Whoever takes the time to rebadge these hard drives with a sticker needs to take a little more time fixing them before sending them out.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: None really. Its as fast as most SSD's and initially I thought it was at a good price point, for the amount of storage.

Cons: Drive failed after 2 days. Loaded up fine, got the OS (win7) running smoothly and then it fails. Tried everything with it. Reformat, reinstall, win-repair, switching cables, switching sata ports...nothing works. And since the stupid thing is refurb, only had a 30 day warranty.

Other Thoughts: If you get refurbished products, DO NOT let them sit on your shelf for 31 days before using it. Large potential for it to be a worthless paperweight.

5 out of 5 eggsNice drive

Pros: Bought refurbished unit - somewhat cheaper .... works like a champ once you tweak a few settings.

Cons: didn't install itself

Other Thoughts: Did fresh install of win 7 -64bit. At first it seemed the install was going slow but after 25 minutes all was OK. Boot time decreased to 20 seconds from power on to desktop instead of 1min 20 secs.
