Corsair Recalls Force Series 3 SSDs

Popular PC hardware manufacture Corsair has issued a recall for the company's 120GB Force Series 3 Solid State Drives with product code CSSD-F120GB3-BK. The company is citing an issue that affects "a significant percentage" of these particular drives, and only the drives with the aforementioned product code.

In a forum posting Corsair said it analyzed issues associated with the stability of the recently released drive and wants users to stop using them immediately, even if their drives are not showing signs of an issue. To return your Force Series 3 120GB SSD to Corsair, contact Corsair to ARRANGE YOUR REPLACEMENT . Corsair will pay for shipping your drive back to them and will replace your drive free of charge. Estimated turnaround time is ten business days.

If you are returning your drive I highly suggest backing up any data, and I'd honestly consider formatting the drive, just to keep personal information out of anyone else's hands.
