What we have seen throughout is Incompressible Data is hard enough for a Sync NAND SandForce controlled drive to deal with and Async NAND magnifies the problem. We love that Corsair chose to implement the 2282 controller along with more NAND modules...

The Corsair Force 3 SSDs performed as expected; in most cases the Corsair drives based on the SandForce SF-2200 controller with Asynchronous NAND came in close to the Force GT in heavy read activity, but slipped when heavy random writes were added to...

Most buyers looking for a SATA3 SSD would expect the blazing fast performance of drives in the Vertex 3 class, and for good reason. Why else would SSD manufacturers bother putting such a speedy interconnect in place if the rest of the drive can't...

The Corsair Force GT is without a doubt one of the fastest S-ATA SSDs on the market today. It looks like it's going to stay that way, too, because it just about saturates the S-ATA 3 connection with its 500 MB/s write and read speeds. So if...

Looking back to our previous review which features the more expensive Force Series GT model we said that the build quality was the usual high standard from Corsair with a solid casing on the outside that protects the high quality branded controller...

On paper, the Force Series 3 120GB looks to be fighting an uphill battle in against some competing drives. It uses NAND built to an older ONFi standard populating its channels which leads to synthetic and real world numbers that will likely fail to...

So, should buy this drive? We think so. Priced at Rs. 10,499, the Corsair Force 3 120GB strikes a very good balance between speed and capacity. It’s roughly the same performance as the last Plextor drive we reviewed. Although, the capacity of this...

Corsair’s Force 3 SSD drive performed better than we initially expected it to. We did not expect it to be able to match the performance of the considerably more expensive Force GT drive; however it performed very close to it and actually managed...
