Default Corsair Force 40GB Solid State Drive

Being known for sending products back with a note explaining why a product is junk, I will never recommend it to anyone. But obviously something has changed in my line of thinking or else you wouldn't even be reading this review to begin with. To start things off, Corsair's new F40 is not a reduced channel POS that should have never seen the light of day. This is a real SSD with all of the channels sending and receiving data just like the big boys that I normally cover. That means that most of the performance is there...not all of the performance since smaller flash is a bit slower, but enough is retained to make the F40 worthy of your time.

Everything sounds really good up to this point but there are still more to consider. In our 60GB drive tests we learned that the smaller flash chips did have a slight performance hit. This is amplified with the reduced flash count, so don't expect 240GB capacity like performance. We will get into the performance later in this article, but performance is only half of the story.
