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. The Corsair Force Series 3 SSDs offer maximum performance for your ultimate system with up to a maximum read speed of 550 MB/s and max random 4K write of 85,000 IOPS. 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, application load times, data transfers, and even shutdown times are all faster. Also, your system will be more responsive with Force Series 3 SSDs. Add up all the time you spend all day waiting for your computer — starting up, loading game levels, saving large files and documents — and it can be significant. Using a PC can be a lot more enjoyable when it's not always making you wait.

1 out of 5 eggsdon't waste your time or money

Pros: cheap ssd

Cons: DOA, bought it for a future upgrade, and it has not even soo much as been shown present in any app, bios, or OS.
I am a huge Corsair fan, but this has made me loose some faith in their products. Not even the Corsair ssd support app can discover it.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: It was a cheap SSD and booted my machine in 15 sec.

Cons: The first drive I received was DOA (which seems to be common for this drive). I was satisfied with my service for replacement.

The second drive worked great for exactly 45 days. Too bad the limited warranty was up after 30 days. The machine was off for the last week and when I turned it on, nothing. The drive refuses to register just like the previous DOA drive.

Other Thoughts: I've had great experiences with refurbished equipment as it is usually tested prior to being re-released into the wild. Corsair seems to have an escape in their quality process considering the number of DOA drives. I wonder if this this is an issue in their new drives? I don't think I want to take that gamble, but at least the warranty period would be longer.

1 out of 5 eggsA good deal if it continues to work.

Pros: As with any SSD drive, this drive loads very fast... when it loads. More on that later.

It's also quite affordable, in the short term. Potentially a gamble in the long term, at least in my experience.

Cons: This thing worked fine for about the first 3 weeks. After that it started having this startup issue. Now anytime I start up my computer, the drive is not recognized as a proper boot disk and asks me to insert something into my second boot drive (The CD drive) and press any key. it takes me around 5 or 6 restarts to get it to boot into windows normally. This also happens with restarting from sleep mode, where it will load up the password screen, but not load into windows from there (It just black screens). Again, rebooting 5 or 6 times from that allows me to boot into the same windows I let it sleep from. Honestly this is unnacceptable, as the whole reason I bought a solid state drive was because of the supposed quick boot up times.

Once I get it to load it's fine, and it's quick to load up games installed on the drive, but really I'm just worried that its going to crash and I'm going to be left with a paper weight, a weekend of re-installation blues. It's also annoying, because I have student editions of ARCGIS and other software that I have to contact my school to get a new code for.

Other Thoughts: I tried to return this for a potentially non broken version, however I had waited past the 30 day return window. Let this be a warning - if your part appears broken, don't try and weather the storm, or bother tinkering with your BIOS. Just send it back.

2 out of 5 eggsNot cool

Pros: The second one works nicely

Cons: DOA, had to pay half the cost of the ssd in question to ship the dead one back. The replacement came fast because i paid a huge deposit but still not impressed. You sent me a paper weight, corsair, and then made me pay the outrageous return shipping on it in order to get what i paid for and what you agreed to provide me with in the first place. You may have just lost a customer, i havent decided yet. Man up and stand behind your products, this is completely ignorant and and you know it.

Other Thoughts: Corsair left me two options, either pay the $30 to get a working one or accept my $60 loss and go elsewhere for an SSD. I'm curious as to what would have happened if the second one was also DOA...

1 out of 5 eggsNot going to buy refurbished again

Pros: price was good considering I paid $200 for a non refurbished corsair force series 3 120gb ssd.

Cons: ssd does not always show up on hard starts. I have to power on/off the computer. I checked my sata cables, sata ports, and psu... all is good... it is definitely the ssd. I'm outside of RMA range.

1 out of 5 eggsStay away

Pros: Cheap

Cons: The first 3 I got were all dead. Each one was tested with 3 different motherboards and 1 laptop. The first 3 were all completely dead.

Since I could not get a refund because it was refurbished I had to keep sending them back in hopes I would finally get one that worked.

After almost 2 months of returns and test the last one finally worked. I sold the last one I got and will never buy again.

Other Thoughts: Beware of refurbished drives from Corsair.

I am not saying Corsair is a bad company but the Quality Control has some major issues.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed in less than 4 months

Pros: Great price

Cons: Had intermittent boot failures for a few months. Completely failed in less than four months. This SSD had problems soon after installation. The laptop occasionally wouldn't recognize the drive, and wouldn't boot. I re-formatted the drive and did a fresh install with this SSD in a desktop PC. Then the boot failures would be more frequent, until finally the drive wouldn't ever boot. It no longer could be discovered in BIOS. It's too late for an RMA, thus the one star rating.

Other Thoughts: Probably had the same problem it got returned for the first time.
