Corsair Recalls Force 3 SSD's

Postby Apoptosis » Tue Jun 07, 2011 12:54 pm

Just got this e-mail from Corsair and thought that I'd share it with our readers.

Over the past several days, we have analyzed issues associated with the stability of our recently released 120GB Force Series 3 SSD (Corsair part number CSSD-F120GB3-BK). Our review has identified that a significant percentage of these drive do not operate to specification. The solution will require changes to both the SSD firmware and the hardware components of the SSD itself.

We’ve worked closely with our partners to determine a root cause but there is no single issue at fault. I’m sure you’ll have questions about how this could happen but we can only say that our production test did not catch this combination of issues and we have implemented multiple corrective actions, involving both firmware and hardware, and are confident we have resolved all currently known issues.

This is our fault, our production tests didn’t catch the issue before the drives were shipped to the consumer and we take full responsibility for our products, which is why we’re asking for them to be returned and will be picking up return shipping.

Consumers should be directed to the following link in our forums for instructions on returning their drives.
