I was very concerned because of other reviews, around the web about this product. However, I merely cloned my old hard drive to this using EZ Gig IV no need to even shrink my partitions are check alignments this is already done. The drive already came with the latest firmware and windows 7 automatically changes system settings to optimize the ssd looking at the as ssd benchmark I get a 347 total and a WEI of 7.4 for the disk.

this one of the best value solid-state disk drives that I have ever seen. it cost less than one dollar per gigabyte, which is unheard of for solid-state disk drives. Even though it is an older version, most users will not be able to tell the difference when they install it into their computer.

Product Overview

One of the best PC performance investments you can make.
You'll be amazed at the improvement over traditional hard drive access times the first time you turn on your computer, and for virtually everything you do with your PC. System startup, game and application load times, file loading, data transfers, and even shutdown times are all faster.

Your system will be more responsive, and you'll be more productive.
Add up all the time you spend all day waiting for your computer — starting up, loading game levels, saving large files and documents, and just moving data around — and it can be significant.

The power of SATA 3 6Gb/second performance
The SATA 3 connection on the Force Series 3 offers up to 6Gb/s speed vs. SATA 2 drives that top out at 3Gb/s.

Great for the latest high-performance PCs.
There's fast, and then there's fast. Force Series 3 SSDs have even quicker read and write times when they're installed in PCs that use the latest SATA 3 interface.

Compatible with SATA 2 3Gb/s.
Haven't yet moved to SATA 3? Like all Corsair components, Force Series 3 SSDs are designed to last through several system upgrades. Adding a Force Series 3 today means that you'll still get incredible storage performance now, and your SSD will be ready for your next upgrade.

Force Series 3: Get more for less.
Choosing a Force Series 3 SSD helps your computing budget go farther. Powered by the SandForce SF-2200 controller, they deliver outstanding SATA 3 6Gb/s performance, with prices that are comparable to lower-performance SATA 2 3Gb/s solid-state drives.
