Is if safe to buy a Corsair 120GB Force 3 drive now?


Recommended Posts

I have a plan to upgrade my HDD very soon and am very interested in getting an SSD. In particular, I'm looking at a 120 GB model, but after going through the search, I discovered that almost all drives from any manufacturer that utilize Sand Force 2 chip have some kind of stability issues.


I found that Corsair recalled its early batch of the 120GB model. However, in this thread http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=95825, Yellowbeard said anything 1123 or higher is good.


Before making my purchase, can I get any confirmation that the problems that inherit in the recalled production have now been fixed?

Personally I have a Force GT and I've experienced the infamous sandforce disappearing trick once, one month after purchase.


I haven't seen it since updating to firmware 1.3.3 - now several months after.


They're indeed safe to purchase!
