Go Full Speed With Corsair Force GT SSD

While 2.5″ hard disk drives are certainly small, they aren’t always the fastest out of the bunch. If you’re looking for real speed and increased data dependability, you might want to look into solid state drives. The new Corsair Force GT is a SATA III drive that offers 550Mbps read and 5xx write speeds.

It even comes in an unusual red coating, which makes it stand out in comparison to similar drives. Although fast, the drives do not come cheap as solid-state technology remains to be ‘the latest & greatest’ in storage media.

Corsair Recalls 120GB Force Series 3 SSD

It looks like Corsair may have sold a bad egg, or even a whole batch of them, with the 120GB Corsair Force Series solid state drives. Corsair claims that a “significant percentage” of these drives do not perform to specifications.

Corsair claimed that it analyzed issues associated with the stability of the recently released drive and requests that users stop using them immediately, even if there are no signs of strange behavior. Fortunately, the problem only affects the 120GB version with the part number CSSD-F120GB3-BK, and all other drives in the Force and Force GT families are unaffected.

Solid-state technology is great because the drives use solid-state memory to store persistent data on the disk, allowing for much quicker access to user files. Also, rather than using a rotating disk found in traditional hard disk drives, solid-state drives do not have any such spinning disk, allowing the occasional bump on the road to not affect the drive’s data.

As you may guess, solid-state drives are a bit more useful for portable gadgets like laptops and netbooks because those are devices that actually move around and are more susceptible to drops and bumps than the desktop computer that sits by your desk all day.
