If you’ve been looking out for a nice SSD to upgrade your laptop to, you may have stumbled on Corsair’s Force range. While its not from their higher-end GT lineup, the Force 3 is notably faster than the Accelerator and Nova series. Featuring Sandforce’s SF-2281 controller, real-world performance is close to the speeds labeled on the box, with incompressible speeds falling just behind the GT series thanks to asynchronous NAND memory in the Force 3. At 7mm, it also fits in the chassis of most Ultrabooks.
If you were looking at one, Corsair now ships SSD upgrade kits for notebooks and desktops and makes the purchase worth the consideration over competing brands such as OCZ with its booming Indilinx-powered vertex 4. The kit ships with a USB-to-SATA connector as well as a copy of some software to transfer over your OS and user files. If you’ve never seen why SSDs are more beneficial, go check out some booting videos on Youtube. SSDs allow you to breathe life into older notebooks and desktop computers, extending their useful life beyond what would be normally possible.
