We've seen several different capacities of Corsair's Force SSD drives on our test benches this year and we've been impressed with their performance.

The 40GB Force drive performs superbly, albeit slightly behind its larger siblings. This can mostly be attributed to the lower density NAND but it still offers the fabulous SF-1200 controller with its support of TRIM and its proprietary DuraClass technology..."
