Conclusion:

When it comes down to benchmarking the Corsair Force Series 100GB SSD, I was quite happy with the results that it was able to provide, despite a few benchmarks that gave it a bit of trouble when it was compared to the Mushkin drive.  However, it was still able to beat the other drives in a majority of the testing. The write speeds that the F100 was able to produce were amazingly fast, while the read speeds were about where the other drives were in about half of the testing. The Corsair drive's write speeds are what make it shine. The SandForce Controller was able to prove itself in that aspect. The fact that the drive has native TRIM support does give it additional value, which will allow for a longer lasting main drive in your system and will keep the performance from dropping during continued usage throughout the upcoming months. With the drive coming in with only 100GB of total size, space was also a disappointment, however this is typically how most SSDs are produced with a smaller capacity to keep the price down. Speaking of price, at the time of the review, you can pick one of these drives for just over $400 at CompUSA.  For the performance that the drive was able to give, it would be a good investment to give your setup that extra little bit of performance, when you have overclocked everything as much as you possibly can and cannot squeeze any more performance out of the other components.

 

Pros:

  • Overall Performance
  • SandForce Controller
  • TRIM support
  • SMART Technology

 

Cons:

  • Capacity
