Corsair has announced the release of their new Force Series LS solid-state drive (SSD) line, which will be made available in 240GB, 120GB, and 60GB units. The Force Series LS SSDs feature a 2.5 inch form factor, and can be installed on most desktops or notebooks with 2.5″ or 3.5 inch drive bays (3.5 requires an adapter).
The Force Series LS SSDs are 7mm-high and feature a Phison 6Gb/s SSD controller with Toshiba NAND flash memory, offering file transfer speeds of up to 555MB/s read and 535MB/s write, which is “up to 10 times faster than standard hard drives.”
The Force Series LS drives support TRIM, garbage collection, and S.M.A.R.T commands. The built-in dynamic and static wear-leveling algorithm help to prolong the life of the drive’s flash memory.
The Force Series LS SSDs are backed by a three year warranty and are available in 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB capacities at MSRPs of $69.99, $109.99, and $199.99 USD.
