Corsair Force LE 480GB TLC SSD Review (PN# CSSD-F480GBLEB)

HD Tune Pro

HD Tune Pro is a hard disk / SSD utility with many functions. It can be used to measure the drive’s performance, scan for errors, check the health status (S.M.A.R.T.), securely erase all data and much more.

Standard Test

The Read bench in HD Tune Pro shows us hitting a minimum speed of 356.0MB/s and a Max of 399.8MB/s with an average speed of 373.6MB/s not bad for an affordable large capacity SSD.

0Fill (totally compressable)

Running a file length of 500MB sequential read of 482,841KB/s and a write speed of 459,460KB/s. Take a gander at the 4K random multi IOPS (Input/Output Operations per Second) 102,635 IOPS read and 79,568 IOPS write, keep in mind that per second and you realize just how blazing fast the Corsair Force LE 480GB TLC SSD really is.

Mixed (0Fill and Compressed)

Mixed 0Fill and Compressed in HD Tune Pro is important because as we mentioned earlier TLC drives require a stronger controller and treat compressed data and uncompressed data the same way and don’t slow down for compressed data. In the last test, we got 500MB sequential read of 482,841KB/s and a write speed of 459,460KB/s. In the Mixed test, we got 481,250 KB/s read and 456,462 KB/s write practically identical speeds with the oFill test.

The HD Tune Pro Random test gives us speeds and IOPS going from 512 bytes at 8.649 MB/s to 326.665 MB/s on the 1MB test. The random test shows 483 IOPS and 245.123 MB/s giving us entirely acceptable speeds for a SATA 3 SSD!
