Corsair expanded their Force LS solid state drive lineup with two new and larger capacities. The Force LS series is now also available as 960GB and 480GB sized models for those of you who need more space than the previous 240GB, 120GB, and 60GB models had to offer.
The Corsair LS series of drives provide consumers with a cost-effective way to upgrade their notebook or desktop PCs to faster and more reliable solid-state storage. The drives come as 7mm high 2.5-inch form factor, as most SSDs do, which makes the drive universally usable across all platforms and systems. The drives are using SATA3 technology but are backwards compatible with both SATA2 and SATA.
The Force LS series of solid state drives can deliver file transfer speeds of up to 560MB/s read and 540MB/s write. Feature-wise the 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’s flash memory. The downloadable Corsair SSD Toolbox software allows you to keep track of everything as well as update firmware and perform secure erase of your drives.
The Force Series LS 960GB and 480GB SSDs are estimated to sell at an average price of $379.99 and $189.99 respectively. The SSDs are available immediately from Corsair’s worldwide network of authorized retailers and are backed by a three-year warranty.
