The packaging is good enough. But I really wish they have mentioned the warranty period on the box itself.

Like all Corsair standalone kits, you get the bare essentials.

2 separate set of screws and the SSD with a metal casing- Hot Rod (I think, but it is no different from the colour scheme compared to Force GT)

One thing to emphasize. Corsair has provided a small warranty notification for Australian Consumers only:

Thumbs up to Australia’s consumer law. Indian consumers don’t really need to worry about it since Corsair’s RMA track record amongst end-users have been excellent overall all thanks to the effort from Corsair India, its respected distributors and Kaizen Infotech, who takes care of the manufacturer’s RMA.

Moving on,

The drive came with 5.02 firmware that was flashed on the SSD by default, but since the firmware has TRIM issues AND the newer firmware is released, I’ll be testing it with the new 5.03 Firmware.

Force GS series is available in 180GB, 240GB, 360GB and 480GB. As clearly mentioned in the title, I am evaluating the 240GB version, that gives 223GB of formatted space at your disposal.

Do note that I feel very positive about the sheer performance of this drive:
