CORSAIR Force Series MP300 M.2 SSD Review

In the market for a new solid state drive of the M.2 variety? Check out this review of CORSAIR's Force Series MP300 480GB M.2 SSD.

The MP300 SSD from Corsair does offer good mainstream performance, with test results hovering around the rated speeds. By using Toshiba’s BiCS 3D TLC NAND ICs, the MP300 is no speed demon, but it is a very good replacement for the aging SATA3 standard. Thanks to the M.2 standard, the MP300 is very compact, single-sided and does not require extra cables in order to operate; the only thing you need to check before purchase is that your motherboard does support NVMe PCI-Express Gen 3.0 x2, otherwise the drive won’t be usable.
