What's the difference between the GS and the LS that I reviewed last week ? The GS unit has 2,000,000 MTBF instead of 1,000,000 of the LS and shock resistance of 1500G instead of 40G of the LS. It doesn't come with the 256 MB DRAM Cache Memory that's...

I may sound like a broken record but all SandForce SSDs except Intel's are more or less the same. While there are small variations in performance, the big picture is still alike. You have a few NAND choices but most manufacturers offer SSDs based on all...

In one corner we have the mechanical storage drive industry becoming smaller- especially now that Seagate has completed acquiring LACie. But its the opposite that's going on in the SSD Market. It still does need to catch up on higher storage space with...

Unlike most SSDs which have been released extremely late in the lifestyle of certain product generations and make no mistake, the SF2281 is edging towards its sunset period– the Corsair Force GS 240GB is a drive which simply could not have been...

Corsair doesn't mess about when it comes to solid state drives. It seemingly doesn't matter what sort of configuration you want, you can pick one up from the former memory maestro. I say 'former' only because Corsair has branched out so far that only...

The Corsair Force GS 240 GB is an excellent SSD. Now that the problems with SandForce belong to the past with the arrival of firmware version 5, there is no reason not to buy this solid state drive. In terms of performance the Force GS is one of the...

Right now we're still in a silly season with most of the SandForce drives. While everyone has the TRIM fixing code in the lab, very few are going to release it to the public as is. Just today we learned that 5.0.3 does not pass WHQL certification....

Corsair keeps knocking them out of the park. The Force GS is their latest homerun. Everything about this drive is impressive right down to the price. The Force GS is available for under $1 per GB directly from Corsair and even less from online...
