Corsair has announced the release of the Force Series LS SSD line.
Available in capacities of 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB, the 7mm-high Force Series LS SSDs can be installed into most desktop or notebook PC with a standard 2.5- or 3.5-inch drive bay (3.5-inch bays require optional adapter). The drives feature SATA 6Gbps support for optimal performance with the latest systems, and are backward compatible with SATA revision 1.0 and 2.0 for maximum compatibility. A copy of the powerful Corsair SSD Toolbox software utility is included as a free download.
Featuring a Phison 6Gbps SSD controller with Toshiba NAND which delivers high speed file transfer rates of up to 555MBps read and 535MBps write (up to 10 times faster than standard hard drives), the new drives support TRIM, garbage collection, and S.M.A.R.T commands and include built-in an advanced dynamic and static wear-leveling algorithm to extend the lifespan of the drive flash memory.
For those wondering, the new LS series doesn't replace the existing GS series. Both are value-oriented models, but Corsair is hoping to offer even better value on the Force Series LS drives that use a different SSD controller used from the rest of their offerings.
