Corsair has just relaesed the budget-friendly Force Series LX solid-state drives (SSD). Available in either 256 GB or 128 GB capacities, the Force LX 256 GB costs $129.99 and the 128 GB $74.99.
Powered by a Silicon Motion SSD controller, Force LX's SATA 3 file transfer speeds are up to 560 MB/sec read and 300 MB/sec write.
The SSDs feature a 7 mm aluminum housing for easy installation into almost every desktop or notebook PC with a 2.5 inch drive bay.
