There's fast, and then there's Force 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 a write speed of 510 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 the 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.

  • newegg SATA 3 Compliant Force Series 3 SSDs have even quicker read and write times when they're installed in PCs that use the latest SATA 6Gb/s interface. However, it is also backward compatible with SATA 3Gb/s.
  • newegg TRIM Support Force Series 3 SSDs feature support for the Windows 7 TRIM command, which allows them to store only the data they need and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.
  • newegg SSD Benefits - Cool and Quiet, with Low Power Consumption SSDs have no moving parts so they can handle shock, vibration and temperature changes far in excess of traditional hard drives.

  • newegg 2.5” to 3.5" Adapter Included 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.

Great with the latest firmware

Comments: If they hadn't fix this situation it certainly wouldn't be a 5 star. I shut down this PC every night so it didn't bother me very much but people that want 24/7 on system will be very annoyed. I've been keeping an eye on SSDs for a while and a lot of people had similar problems with different brand of SSDs. I believe most people that gave it bad rating would give them better after this fix if they can get past their frustration.

Well it has good benchmarks

Comments: I have had to RMA this twice and the new one does the exact same. Has the latest firmware but just will not stop the constant stuttering!

Good drive with minor issues

Comments: My computer runs for 18+ hours a day, and I've had the drive for just over 3 weeks and so far I've had the drive fail 3 times. Each time it happened I was away from the computer, so next time it happens in the middle of something I might not be so forgiving - But given these read/write speeds I'm willing to accept the once-a-week failure.

I originally had a P55 1156 motherboard with a Marvell SATA III port and my read/write speeds were terrible. I later learned that the Marvell controller is awful for these SSD's. My board only had Marvel SATA III, so I bought a new 1155 motherboard with an intel SATA III controller and my speeds were much better. Even on newer boards, you'll have both Intel and Marvel - make sure you plug it into the intel port.
