Review: Corsair Force MP510
September 27, 2010, and I am about to purchase the Corsair Nova 64GB SSD for only 120.11 € which back then was a great deal, and more importantly it was a life changing decision. But we are not in
2010. Thankfully 32GB and 64GB SSD drives are no longer available (as far as I know). What is available however, is the Corsair Force MP510 NVMe SSD, which replaces the Force MP500 and promises speeds that were unheard back in 2010. For 106€ you can get the 240GB drive with speeds that you could not reach even if you had a few of them in a RAID configuration back in 2010. The Corsair Force MP510 is an m.2 drive and its available in capacities from 240GB up to 2TB. For more information about the drive and pricing you can click here.
Time for me to stop all this nonsense about the past and focus on today, and today I will be taking a look at the Force MP510 NVMe SSD.
Thanks to Corsair for providing the 960GB Force MP510 for this review. For more information about Corsair you can visit their website by clicking here. Let’s start this review by taking a look at the packaging and its contents, before moving on to some testing.
