Corsair Force GS 240GB SSD Review Comment Thread
 
Corsair's Force GS 240GB may be one of the best SSDs we've reviewed over the past year. While it may use a slightly older SF2281 controller, the use advanced NAND allows for killer performance at an unbelievably low price. This drive really does have it all.

Do any of the writers here have time to do a dedicated article on types of NAND? I imagine it wouldn't be a 'promotional/showcae' article, but strictly informational

...unless there already is an article about this...

We'll certainly look into it!

Corsair naming now in reverse?
 
I really like Corsair's products. I have their HX 850 PSU, several of their Survivor flash drives, and last year I bought the Force GT 120 GB; however, why are they naming the new red ssd with a lower class name than my red GT? Why didn't they just call it GS-R, GT-R or GTv2? Does this bother anyone else?

I would vote for GT-R for completely non automotive reasons.... :ph34r:

Nice to see some improvement in the Force product-line. Any word on getting to review Corsair's Neutron GTX line of SSDs, or is it too new/early?

I was also going to ask this as I was thinking that the Neutron was their new ultra high end one. And I also find the naming on this one kind of funny. I mean I took one look at Mem Express and saw that the Force GT is $20 more than the GS. Add the cost to the name and I see people wanting to grab that GT over the GS. So really that is kind of a bad move on their part but I still like the drive.

I'd love to get one but I don't think I will be getting a new ssd until the cost of the 480/512's come down more.

Was thinking the same, but then I saw that the GS drives come in 360GB (Newegg.ca - Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F360GBGS-BK 2.5" 360GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)) on Newegg, for $309, so will see how quickly my main drive will fill-up.

I don't suppose you guys are planning on reviewing the Plextor M5P anytime soon? http://smiliesftw.com/x/fingersx.gif
