The latest Solid State Drives (SSDs) use Toggle Mode NAND flash paired with a SandForce controller for faster performance. These drives are marginally faster than earlier models such as OCZ Vertex 3 and Intel SSD 520, which use synchronous NAND flash. The first SSD with Toggle Mode NAND flash that we tested was the 240GB SanDisk Extreme. This time it’s Corsair's newly launched Corsair Force GS. Let’s see what it has in store.

Like the Force GT, the GS also follows a bright red theme unlike the usual drab black or grey theme. The colour is a good differentiator for an enthusiast-class component, but it would only stand out if you have an open rig. The shell has a rough finish and this does give a sort of a rugged feel. The sticker mentions the model in big bold letters along with the capacity and interface type (SATA 3). The package includes a 3.5-inch adapter and screws for installing the SSD into the hard drive bay of the PC case.

Among the four capacities, the 360GB variant has the fastest rated sequential read and write speeds at 555 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively. The 240GB and 180GB drives have the same read speed, but the write speed is slightly lower at 525 MB/s. The 480 GB drive is the slowest with sequential read and write speed of 540 MB/s and 455 MB/s respectively.
The Force GS SSD is backed by a 2-year warranty. In contrast, SanDisk Extreme, Intel SSD 520 and a few other models come with a warranty of 3 years.
