Corsair Force GT review

 

The Force GT is Corsair's mainstream offering, and that's indicated by its price. The 240GB model reviewed here costs £180. That means it costs around 75p per gigabyte, making it one of the best-value drives around at the moment.

A fine mainstream effort from Corsair

Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SSD Review

 

Not that long after Corsair's announcement of the Force Series 3 lineup of SSDs the Froce GT series was introduced. In order to keep up with the

Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD

 

Corsair's Force GT comes in a bright red chassis, which by Ork logic (in the Warhammer 40K universe) would make it the fastest SSD ever. So is it?

Most benchmarks put it right at the top; pretty red color

Write speeds (and write-dependent tests) lag behind peers

In CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD’s sustained read tests, the Force GT is as fast as any SSD we’ve ever tested. Its ATTO 64KB read and write scores, single-queue-depth 4KB read and writes, and Iometer random write speeds are likewise nearly identical to...

Corsair Force GT (2012) 240GB SSD Review

 

With little variation in the market we go gaga when something comes along that's different. Designed on a myth, built by enthusiasts and sold like any other SSD, this one is truly different.

Corsair Force GT 240 GB SSD Review

 

We are reviewing the Corsair Force GT 240GB SSD. Corsair provides enthusiasts with both sides of the SSD controller coin by offering Marvell and SandForce controlled SSDs in its product lines. Today we will take a look at the SandForce option with its...

In continuing our series of SSD reviews, we're looking at a drive from Corsair, the 180GB Force Series GT. As our last reviews were of drives in the 240-256GB range, we asked Corsair for some of their drives in the same range. But alas, their marketing...
