Corsair was the first to send us a retail SF-1200 controlled SSD, the . That was quite an exciting moment for us since we had already tested two early pre-production SF-1500 enterprise drives. We knew that SandForce’s consumer controller was very si...
Bottom line Corsair was one of the first companies to get a drive to market. The F100 wasn’t available at Newegg and few e-tailers picked it up but it was out there in the wild ready to be purchased by those looking for one of the fastest SSDs on the market. Fo...

Bottom line Are you just as surprised as me to see the SF-1200 perform just as well as the enterprise SF-1500 when both are running MLC flash? SandForce and their partners have been pretty quiet about how the consumer drive performs. Generally when a company h...

Ultra affordable (AKA Ultra Small Capacity) drives have been the odd bird in the SSD world. Intel and Kingston have both been somewhat successful developing drives in this category, but I have done my best to steer clear from this market altogether...
Bottom line Best of both worlds? Not exactly, but the Corsair Force F40 is cheap enough, and fast enough to be considered if you are looking for an SSD on a budget. Before now there really wasn’t a viable option that allowed users to get close to the level of p...
