Going into this review we already knew the asynchronous flash equipped Force Series 3 would be slower than the synchronous flash Force Series GT model.
What we were really interested in seeing is if the new configuration with the SF-2282 controller would be able to overcome the issue. Unfortunately additional flash and an upscale controller still do not elevate the Force 3 to the same high standards of the Force GT.
All is not lost for the Force Series 3, though. As long as the Force Series 3 is priced competitively against the Force GT then it will be attractive to several shoppers. After all, the Force Series 3 is a solid state drive based on a SandForce controller. Most users are looking for the ultra-low access times and the Force 3 does deliver quality SSD access times.
At this time, though, the Corsair Force 3 doesn't really meet the financial test. With just a $20 price premium for the GT at the 180GB capacity size, we feel the discount isn't enough. Only you can really decide what amount makes the Force 3 worth your while.
Personally I think $50 or $60 at this capacity size changes the game, but at $20 you are much better off buying the Force GT with synchronous flash.
