As I said in my review of the 120GB Corsair Force LS drives, the switch from SandForce to Phison for the controller was not a good decision.
Most of what I have to say about this SSD was said in the review I left for the 120GB model; however, the 240GB model is more than capable to reaching (and momentarily exceeding) the higher advertised read speeds of 560MB/s. The highest I reached was about 624MB/s. Unfortunately, average speeds are still stuck at around 400MB/s (certainly faster than the 'half that speed' mentioned by the other reviewer, which leads me to suspect that he has used a SATA II port instead of SATA III).
The only reason I wouldn't recommend this SSD is because, for the same price, you can get a 240GB Corsair Force GS, which uses the SandForce controller, which, in my experience, offers better transfer rates than the Phison.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Andre12390 I'd be careful if I was you...
So the product advertises the Read and Write speed as 560MB/s and 535MB/s.
Don't be fooled.
I didn't even scrape half that speed.
Maybe I could have a faulty drive? Either way, i'm not impressed.
(FYI, my motherboard is above the necessary specifications needed to achieve such a transfer speed).
