As part of the transition to SSDs based on 25nm NAND, Corsair has announced the Force Series 115GB and 80GB SSDs. The Corsair F115-A and F80-A 25nm drives will be available by the end of February. Corsair has taken the welcome tact of being transparent about the change in capacity and performance - and they've also dropped the price. The current generation F120 carries an MSRP of $249 for instance; the new F115-A will retail for $215. The F80-A will see a suggested retail of $169.
I haven't understood why buy a F115 instead of a F120.
F115 is smaller, slower, with a shorter lifetime and it cost quite the same.
Why buy a 25nm like this now?

While I can't say for certain right now, if the F80A and F115 are both using a full 16 NAND ICs, speed won't be anywhere near as drastically changed as it was in our Vertex 2 60GB review.
