Corsair Force F120 120GB SandForce Solid State Drive

The Corsair Force F120 120GB SSD




The outside of the Corsair F120 has everything you could want. Here we see the brushed aluminum case with a sticker on the top side that gives us the model and serial number.




The bottom of the F120 has the four mounting locations that make installation to an adapter very easy.




Both sides of the F120 also have the standard mounting locations that make installation easy in notebook adapters.




On the back we see that standard SATA power and data connectors are where they should be so installing the Corsair Force Series of products will be very easy in nearly all computers.




As mentioned previously Corsair is shipping the Force drives with a desktop adapter. Here we see the drive loaded into the adapter. As you can see the drive sits off to one side as it should. This keeps the SATA power and data ports in line with specifications that state where they ports should be.




The Corsair F100 that we looked at used what I call the Super Capacitor PCB since it has a spot on the back for the enterprise SF-1500's super capacitor. The F120 uses a different PCB that we have not ran across in a review before.




The F120 also uses Intel flash this time, sixteen total when you add both sides of the PCB. The F100 used Micron flash but we suspect the specs are the same since Intel and Micron now have a joint venture on flash memory.
