Corsair released the Force Series LX solid-state drives (SSD), available in either 256GB or 128GB capacities. The idea behind the new drives is to bring the SSD performance to new lower price point. With the Force LX 256GB costing $129.99 and the 128GB just $74.99, there's never been a better time to upgrade to SSD.
Powered by a Silicon Motion SSD controller, the Force Series LX SSDs offer performance up to 10 times faster than that of a conventional spinning-disk hard drive. Force LX has a SATA3 interface, capable of file transfer speeds of up to 560MB/sec read and 300MB/sec write. Operating system start-up and application load times accelerate to mere seconds, anti-virus scans complete far faster, and navigating your PC's files feels much more responsive thanks to low access times.
A slim-line 7mm aluminum housing makes it easy to install the Force LX into almost every desktop or notebook PC with a 2.5 inch drive bay -- an ideal upgrade for a notebook, ultrabook or PC in need of a boost.
Corsair's bundled SSD Toolbox software utility is also included as a free download, allowing you to easily optimize your SSD's performance, clone your existing hard drive, or securely erase all data on a drive. TRIM, NCQ and S.M.A.R.T. technologies automatically maintain drive performance, and Corsair tops off the package with a 3 year warranty.
The Force Series LX SSDs are available in 128GB and 256GB capacities at MSRPs of $74.99 and $129.99. The SSDs are available immediately from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized retailers.
