Corsair has launched a new line of budget solid state drives (SSDs) under the Force LS branding. The new SSDs come in up to 240GB capacities, and despite being budget drives, still manage to max out the SATA III 6Gbps interface.

The new Force LS SSDs use 19nm Toshiba MLC NAND flash and a Phison SSD controller. Traditionally, Corsair has used LSI SandForce controllers in its Force and Force GT solid state drives. The Force LS line includes 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB SSDs. The drives are 7mm thick 2.5” form factor drives.

As far as performance, the drives support sequential write speeds of 535 MB/s and sequential read speeds of 555 MB/s. Information on IOPS have not been released, but expect it to be lower than the existing Force drives due to their budget nature.

There is no word on specific availability date(s), but the new Force LS drives will be priced at $70 for the 60GB, $110 for the 120GB, and $200 for the 240GB. At the top end, the drives are approximately 83 cents per Gigabyte ($0.83/GB). All Force LS drives come with three year warranties.

Corsair idea of creating the SATA solid-state devices is great. But I think solid state devices are losing their values in the field of electronics. I think the performance is excellent as the Corsair Company of electronics creates it.

Although the budget is the drive is still trying to play the greatest degree, so that every coherent. This practice is very good, it is expected than existing power driven, due to the nature of its budget. I support.

Writing speeds of 535 MB/s and sequential read speeds of 555 MB/s is so totally awesome, plus the price is also reasonable. I'm going to click it.
