    Re: Reviews - Corsair Force Series GS (240GB)

    Crucial M4 256Gb and Samsung 830 256Gb can be routinely purchased for £145-150 now, making them around 56-58p/Gb. The corsair at the size and prices stated, come out at 75p/Gb for 180Gb model, 70p/Gb for the 240Gb model, and 68p/Gb for the 380Gb model...meaning they're charging a 18-20% premium for the same amount of space as what are generally considered the best/more stable drives on the market (if you prices listed on page 1 are accurate).

    Real world tests seem to show it's hardly any quicker than the 128Gb M4, so I can only assume the 256Gb M4 (which is considerable cheaper than the 240Gb GS variant) would likely be on-par, provide more space, be cheaper, and have a more reliable controller.

    As such I'm not sure I could really recommend these. The pricing needs to be closer to £110, £140, £205 and £270 for them to be considered worthy of consideration when purchasing.

    Plus excludes Sandforce.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Completely agree with cptwhite_uk

    It's like the ultrabook reviewers saying how the i7 in their laptop isn't the fastest when they're only going to using web browsers, spotify and adobe acrobat...

    Fast enough not to notice any difference is fast enough. With a non-SandForce controller and cheaper price, so much the better.

    Re: Reviews - Corsair Force Series GS (240GB)

    I have a force gt atm and those results dont make me want to rush out and buy thats for sure and I am also of the opinions above that I would be wiser to spend my money on a crucial m4 if I were looking to upgrade.

    Corsair have another interesting new SSD out:

    Based on a LAMD chipset, it seems to do pretty well for itself.
