Rated 5 out of 5 by super fast Great corsair quality comes with adapter so it can be installed in 3.5" bays the shorter boot times are very good 15 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very fast disc access Very fast disc access. Pc operation - boot and application so much quicker. e.g Norton system scan reduced from 40 mins to 9 mins.. Boot in seconds. Acronis used to transfer win8.1 from 300GB partition to 240GB Corsair - backup, then recovery. Very slick. No issues. 02 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Corsair Goodness Purchased as part of a customer build as the OS drive. I'm a huge Corsair fan and use them as much as possible in my builds (along with MSI) and have had no problems with any of the dozens of Corsair SSDs I've used. The Force series has decent IOPs for what you're paying and for the customer that likes a theme the red chassis is a big bonus. Recommended for any 'red' build. 27 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loving this SSD I'm a gamer and i need the speed that this SSD can offer! my computer starts in less then 15s and I'm loading games in less than 10s I really couldn't ask for more. 07 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Goes like stink! SSD was simple to set up.. Ghosted my original HDD to the SSD and my system booted without an issue and instead of taking 2 mins to boot it was loaded and ready in 35sec! quite a leap I'd say in terms of boot time and as for loading on the full Sims 3 + all content load time for that is also surprisingly quick! Best 130 quid I've spent on my rig! 31 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Service The service from this company is second to none. Delivery details were passed at eacch stage of the process. Excellent product too. 06 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast access SSD Easy to install. Very fast access, really speeds booting when used as the OS disc. Absolutely no complaints so far, after a month's use. 31 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Briliant fast product easy to install I needed a new fast drive for video capture. This SSD was so fast it enabled me to capture videos at a higher rate than I originally planned. Installation was easy. The drive was supplied with screws and a fixing plate to enable fixing to a standard drive slot in a PC case. The only extra things you need are a SATA cable and a suitable power supply cable (if you don't already have these in your PC). I simply bought the Dynamode 3.5" to 2.5" HDD/SSD Conversion Kit inc SATA Data Cable as it was cheaper than buying the two cables! Tip - initially windows 7 did not recognise the SSD, but this was resolved by formatting the drive. Great drive, read and write time a lot faster than expected. 11 December 2013
