"The 90GB and 180GB capacities neatly fill the gaps in the current family, which now ranges from 40GB all the way to 240GB."

The F90 and F180 Force Series SSDs all implement the ATA TRIM command, supported by Windows® 7, which helps to maintain optimal performance over the drive's lifetime.

The F90 and F160 Force Series SSDs are available immediately from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers. The MSRP of the F90 and F180 is $189.99 and $399.99, respectively.
