Corsair Force GT SSD review


This is a relatively new SSD from Corsair and is probably one of the highest performing SSD's in its class. This SSD runs off of sandforce controllers which allow for extreme data rates and sata 6gb/s connectivity. Just for reference a harddrive typically does around 100mbps sequential and as you see in this picture this ssd is blazing at 400mbps! Great upgrade for anyone tired of waiting for their harddrives.

  2. I would have to double check but my USB3 drive from Western Digital transfers data at a little faster than 400 MB/s I believe.

  3. Lol at the gas price crack, kind of does resemble it. Great speed increase though, surely needed at my show.

  5. I'm still waiting for the prices on these to go down... Right now I have 2 7200 RPM 500g SSD HYBRID drives in raid zero, that's fast enough for me :)

  6. I don't think I need to use that much speed to transfer files anyway, so I'll just stick to the cheap SATA-HDDs.

  12. I wait for my harddrive, while it waits for the processor, while it waits for the lan card, while it waits for my connection, while it waits for me to buy a better internet plan XD

    1. SSD (Solid state drive) is a newer type of harddrive than HDD (Hard Disk Drive) basically it runs faster, is less prone to failure, requires less power, etc. The only drawback being that it's a hell of a lot more expensive. You can find 1 TB HDD and 60-120 Gb SSD's around the same price. The data is a lot more expensive byte to byte.
