This review has revealed that without a doubt the SSD completely destroys the standard SATA-II HDD. The blistering performance to be had from an SSD is more than significant. The Corsair Force series should convince you that moving to SSD can benefit...

The new low-capacity 40GB Corsair Force F40 is a stunner. Compared to other boot-only drives it blows the competition out of the water by retaining the high read and write speeds of its higher capacity brothers. In our real-world benchmarks the...
