Corsair F100 Force SSD review

Earlier this year when everybody started noticing the 'SandForce' phenomenon in the hardware scene a lot of people shouted 'yay', finally some competition on the SSD IC HOST controller SSD, more ODMs will bring some more competition into a predominantly stiff SSD controller market -- and that's a great thing as emerging companies always have new ideas, driving technology to a new level and prices down.
Thus far we have tested a handful of SandForce based products, and though the first series with the initial SF-1500 controller did bite us a little in the toosh, the SF-1200 controller based products where showing really interesting gains in performance. The SandForce based products by all means are not little wonders and miracles in each and every segment, but on some levels they make a distinct difference oppose to JMicron and Indilinx products.
Certainly when it comes to productivity on your PC, that's where the SandForce 1200 products seem to really kick in. We test Corsairs latest offering, and previously we tested OCZ and ADATA's SF1200 products as well.
So today the turn goes to Corsair. Recently they've released the 'Force series' SSD, now you likely do not need more than 2 brains cells to see where the name Force came from, so let's not explain that.
The Force Series of SSDs initially where available in capacities of 100GB and 200GB and support the TRIM command in Windows 7, which helps to maintain optimal performance over the drives lifetime. Corsair very recently also added 60, 120 and 240 GB sized SSDs in the very same Force range.
To fall into clichés, will the Force be strong with this one ? We'll check it all out in a nice review on Corsair's Force F100 SSD. Next page please.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
