Corsair Force Series LS 240GB SSD
The turquoise and black package is my favorite from the Force series. Normally we try not to pick a favorite, but this color combination is really sharp. The front of the package gives us three feature bullet points and shows the 7mm z-height form factor. This is actually the first Force branded SSD from Corsair to get a 7mm case.
Inside the box, we found a drive four screws for installation and a paper manual.
Here we get our first look at the new Force Series LS 240GB. The drive actually has 256GB of flash inside the case, but a portion of that is reserved for over-provisioning.
The 7mm z-height form factor has the same mounting points as standard 9.5mm drives, so they fit well in notebooks.
Inside we found sixteen Toshiba Toggle NAND flash chips in a TSOP package. There are eight flash chips on each side.
Here we see the Phison S8 controller with a PSC 512MB DRAM buffer as close to the controller as physically possible.
Toshiba TSOP flash has less planes than Toshiba BGA flash, but it's cheaper to manufacture. All of the Phison controlled drives we've tested in a 2.5" form factor shipped with TSOP (the little fingers on the outside edge of the NAND flash).
