It does not use the Sandforce controller. I recommend getting the Intel X25-M G2 80GB, which is still one of the best overall SSD. Intel is still the best but your other option is getting the OCZ Agility 2 for a little less.
If you are willing to spend $200+ on a SSD, why not just upgrade to the ATI 5870, which will have a greater impact gaming wise than a SSD? Just another thought / option.
