While the issues are almost completely resolved now (and most that aren't are a result of users using outdated firmware), saying that you have never had an issue does not take away from the fact that an issue did exist for quite some time.

Think first before you attack someone, did i said anywhere here that the issue has completely fixed already? I even said in my first post here that sandforce sucks.

I'm just saying that my drives doesn't have any problems, ok? Calm down bro, stop drinking coffee.l

Since someone stated earlier that the Corsair Force GTs were good hard drives, are the Force Series 3s considered to have the same level of quality as the GTs or no?

Quality? Yes. Performance? No.
The GTs performs better because of the synchronous nand, the force 3 has the regular asynchronous nand

Quality? What quality? It is a SandForce SSD. lachen.gif

The only difference b/w the GT and the Force 3 is the NAND and the shells. Everything else is the exact same.

So you guys say that the GT performs better because because of synchronous nand, but looking at the read and write speeds, they are not hardly even different. Are we talking significant noticeable differences in speed for every day activities such as boot ups and game load times or just simply a few points higher on a benchmark? Because there is about a $70 difference and if its not even realizable I can't see the point in paying the extra for the GT?

Do not get either.

Read my guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/1179518/seans-ssd-buyers-guide-information-thread

Read this on Asynchronous NAND and Synchronous NAND: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/08/07/nand_flash_faces_off_synchronous_vs_asynchronous/

And they are not, "not hardly even different." Synchronous and Toggle NAND is better than Asynchronous.

Force 3 120GB
511

Force GT 120GB
479

And here is a Plextor M3 128GB...
501

See the difference in 4K reads and access times? That is what really matters.

The benchmarking program used with those ssd is ATTO, which uses compressible datas, that's why both drives performance is almost identical, but look at the bechmarks that used AS SSD program, which uses incompressible datas, you will see a big difference

You are aware that sandforce drives doesn't perform that good with incompressibles compared to compressibles right? Well, the force GT isn't affected that much, it can handle incrompressibles just fine, unlike the force 3.

I am using an Intel 520, and it's plenty fast. Might be a little more expensive than the others, but i get good performance + warranty. It was about 10$ more than the other drives i could have gotten, but it's still well worth the extra warranty here.

If you are planning to buy a corsair ssd but reluctant because of the issues floating around, just visit corsair forums, you will find out if their SSDs are really faulty or not

If its faulty im pretty sure there will be lots of people complaining in there.

Yea I have a Corsair Force 3 on my desktop and a Runcore T50 mSATA in my laptop. Both use the SF-2281. I have had 0 BSODs or any issue at all. Performance is excellent coming from a HDD. Sure it does not benchmark as fast on incompressible data, but you will not notice it except on benchmarks. Both my laptop and my desktop boot up within 15 seconds of hitting the power button.
