The Force series SSD line from Corsair represents their fastest and highest performing SSD models, and Force F40 SSD represents one of the capacity extensions (40GB, 80GB and 160GB) announced in July. Equipped with the latest controllers from SandForce, these models are the crème de la crème of the consumer flash storage world. In this mini review we take a look at the 40GB Corsair F40 and see how it performs against competing SSDs.

Need to change the specs. The 40GB version is ever so slightly slower than the 50GB and up.

Corsair specs

280 MB/s sequential read
270 MB/s sequential write
50K IOPS (4K aligned)

OCZ specs

* Max Read: up to 280 MB/s
* Max Write: up to 270 MB/s
* Sustained Write: up to 200 MB/s
* Random Write 4k (Aligned): 45,000 IOPS

I'm not sure if Corsair just made a typo on the IOPS or if they meant to not change that spec. Either way the seq numbers change.

Good catch Dhanson, made the edit. Well, that tiny throughput change may make up for a part of the speed difference between the F40 and F120.
