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 fast read/write speed and random 4K write. 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.

4 out of 5 eggsStill Working

Pros: I bought two of these 5 months ago and they're both still working. I just figured I'd update my review since so many people have posted bad reviews.
I set up my 2 drives in RAID 0. They usually maintain 400 MB/sec read and write speeds but I've seen up to 1 GB/sec burst speeds.
Windows 7 is ultra fast with two of these in RAID. Anything I want happens almost instantaneously. When I have to work on computers with standard hard drives now, it gets really irritating having to wait.

Cons: I can't think of any. At this point you can get newer, faster hardware for the same price. But 5 months ago, the price was really good.

Other Thoughts: I have a hard time believing that I just got lucky with 2 drives and so many people ended up with bad ones. I just have to assume that the majority of people don't know what they're doing. You should do research to determine whether an SSD will work with your computer and update your motherboard BIOS.
I'm planning on buying 2 more to expand my RAID even further. Fortunately they're still selling them.

5 out of 5 eggsCompletely changed computing experience

Pros: By replacing a slow HDD and with this SSD, I changed my boot time from ~5 minutes to ~20 seconds. The SSD is amazingly fast and has been totally reliable for over a year.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The benefits would probably have come with any brand of SSD, so I don't know anything that makes Corsair's SSD better than the competition. That said, Corsair does enjoy a reputation for high-quality products so the risk of getting an unreliable product are low.

1 out of 5 eggsWatch the warranty!!

Pros: If it works, it works.

Cons: If it don't work, you have 30 days from the purchase date to use the warranty with corsair...

I have bought many of these new because their price point was competitive, but they also were dying left and right. (like most ssds when they first came out) This is just another company who has chose not to deal with the warranties anymore. Business decision, but understand you lose.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA process dreadful

Pros: None that I know of. Drive DOA

Cons: DOA. Newegg's RMA process has been very painful. Delays abound. Chat using grammatical errors, probably foreign operator. Told me they probably get me an answer in 1-2 days. Probably?? What kind of answer is that? Second they had no idea what was in the package I ordered. Wanted retail packaging that didn't come with re-certified item. BTW re-certified was DOA. Maybe of they checked it prior to shipment they would have noticed DOA AND what was in the package.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps the last order I make with Newegg. Definately the last order I make of a re-certified anything from Newegg.

1 out of 5 eggsDont Buy this product

Pros: None!!

Cons: Lasted about 15 minutes! I called the manufacturer & the tech let slip that they don't do a full test on their SSD's. In fact he said "I don't recommend buying these drives"! He went on to say that because they or we the consumer don't know how long the drives were used. The memory cells could be within hours of end of life or MTBF! Interesting, because all drives today have "SMART" technology which can be read so they could see how many times a drive has been cycled or run or how long its been on. They just choose to give it s quick repair, spit shine it with a fresh label & sell their garbage to both the retailer & the consumer. I lost considerable time & almost lost my money if it were not for Newegg's support! Basically all they are doing is hoping it will last long enough to get your money & the warranty to expire before the drive does! Don't waste your time!

Other Thoughts: Thank you Newegg for your support!!!

1 out of 5 eggsI Do Not Recommend

Pros: Price (picked up durring sale)

Cons: Does not work with alot of motherboards.
No drivers to suppord any form of legacy support usually resulting in your BIOS not even recognizing it is installed.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you do your research on this SSD with your specific mother board or you may be disapointed.
