Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Available in three capacity sizes, 60GB, 120GB and 240GB, Corsair positioned the Force LS as the new value offering. On the surface, it may seem that Corsair made the LS just to kick out a new product to strengthen its brand, but with many of the Force products built on 25nm flash that is EOL, Corsair needed a value SSD to keep a well-rounded product line on offer.
The Corsair Force LS 240GB's spec sheet shows compressible data performance. The spec sheet shows 560 MB/s sequential read and 535 MB/s sequential write speeds. Phison's S8 controller is a bit slower with incompressible data, so we'll find the incompressible performance in our testing today.
Corsair didn't publish any 4K random read or write data and with good reason. The high queue depths the S8 controller doesn't produce the high numbers that we see from controllers from Samsung, LSI or Marvell.
Phison's focus is on low queue depth performance, where most of our computers actually read and write. The S8 is a beast at low queue depths, and doubles the QD1 read and write performance of many of the best controllers on the market today.
Our only indication of price comes from the Corsair global website. You can't view the LS series on its US website at all, other than the press release. The Force Series LS we're looking at today has a $259.99 price point on the Corsair website, but we don't expect the price to hold on the e-tail market. The LS drives ship with a three year warranty and screws for installation, but does not ship with a desktop adapter bracket. The LS drives are 7mm z-height so they fit in a wide range of notebooks and ultrabooks.
