Corsair says that the Force LS series provides solid performance at a great value while maintaining reliable and efficient solid state storage for any PC or notebook with a 2.5-inch drive bay. Available in capacities ranging from 60GB to 240GB, each of the new SSDs maintain a 7mm thick footprint, which makes it an ideal solution for a replacement drive in a desktop PC or notebook.

 

The company says that the drives are able to attain read speeds of 555MB/s. Write speeds are a little lower at 535MB/s. Additionally, the drives are backwards compatible with SATA 1 and SATA 2 for maximum compatibility.

 

Corsair notes that the Force LS series supports TRIM, garbage collection, SMART functionality, and feature built-in advanced dynamic and static wear-leveling algorithms. The 60GB model retails at an MSRP of $69.99 and the 120GB retailing for $109.99. The 240GB SSD will set customers back $199.99.
