Constant disconnects

Corsair Force Series 3 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F120GB3-BK

Pros: It really "feels fast" when I get get it to last more than five minutes.

Cons: The drive loses connection after only a couple of minutes. This happens inside or outside of Windows. If it's inside Windows, it is an automatic BSOD.

Overall Review: Supposedly, this is a problem with the latest Sandforce firmware, and the new OCZ drives have the exact same problem. This issue is all over the Corsair and OCZ forums. Buyer beware.

Don't buy yet

Pros: Fast if it works. Corsair is working on a fix.

Cons: Doesn't work. Drive loses connection with the motherboard after about 30-60 seconds, regardless of OS. This is a widespread problem... possibly affecting all of the drives. Check the Corsair forums for details.

Overall Review: Wait for a firmware update. My drive will not even maintain connection long enough for a firmware update, if they even had one. The drive is useless right now.
