Corsair Announces Release of Force Series LX Solid-state Drives

Corsair announced the release of the Force Series LX solid-state drives (SSD). Available in either 256 GB or 128 GB capacities, Force Series LX SSDs bring the amazing performance benefits of an SSD to new lower price point - making it easier than ever to move PC into the SSD fast lane. The speedy benefits of solid-state drives have long attracted PC enthusiasts, but high prices may have put off some users from making the switch to this faster storage technology. In response to this dilemma, Corsair is bringing all the perks of an SSD to a new, even more budget-friendly price point so everyone can feel the rush. With the Force LX 256 GB costing $129.99 and the 128 GB just $74.99, there's never been a better time to upgrade to faster SSD technology. Powered by a Silicon Motion SSD controller, the Force Series LX SSDs offer fantastic performance up to 10 times faster than that of a conventional spinning-disk hard drive. Force LX's SATA 3 file transfer speeds of up to 560 MB/sec read and 300 MB/sec write can massively improve system performance. Operating system start-up and application load times accelerate to mere seconds, anti-virus scans complete far faster, and navigating PC's files feels much more responsive due to near-instant access times. A slim-line 7 mm aluminum housing makes it easy to install the Force LX into almost every desktop or notebook PC with a 2.5 inch drive bay, an ideal upgrade to breathe new life into an notebook, ultra book or PC in need of a boost. Corsair's bundled SSD Toolbox software utility is also included as a free download, allowing to easily optimize SSD's performance, clone existing hard drive, or securely erase all data on a drive. TRIM, NCQ and S.M.A.R.T. technologies automatically maintain drive performance for years to come, and Corsair tops off the package with a 3 year warranty and legendary customer service for total peace of mind. The Force Series LX SSDs are available in 128 GB and 256 GB capacities at MSRPs of $74.99 and $129.99. The SSDs are available immediately from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized retailers and are backed with a three year warranty and Corsair customer service and technical support.
