Replacing old-fashioned mechanical hard drives with modern solid-state technology is a quick and effective way to improve your PC experience, from nearly every aspect. The solid state drives based on flash memory technology deliver higher throughput, higher random IOPS, less heat generation, and less noise. The solid state storage makes a dramatic difference in your daily use: faster system startup/shutdown, quicker programs launching, and more responsive operation and multitasking.
The Corsair Force Series LX SSD is a budget-friendly choice for customers in need of speed and reliability advantages that solid state drivers offer. It boasts SATA 3 interface, a slim 7mm height, and TRIM support that enables memory optimization and less performance degradation. It also comes with Corsair SSD Toolbox, a piece of exclusive software for managing your Corsair solid state drive and maintaining its performance.
SATA 3 speed, SATA 2 compatibility The performance of Force Series LX is optimized for the SATA 3 standard. Haven't yet moved to SATA 3? No problem. Like all Corsair components, Force Series LX SSDs are designed to last through several system upgrades. Adding a Force Series LX today means that you'll still get fast and dependable storage performance now, and your SSD will be ready for your next upgrade.
7mm height for broad PC and laptop compatibility Force Series LX has a height of 7mm, so it will fit into the latest generation of thin and light notebook PCs. Of course, it works in standard desktop PCs, too.
TRIM support Force Series LX SSDs feature support for the TRIM command under Windows 7 and later. This allows them to store only the data they need and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.
SSD Advantages Because SSDs have no moving parts, they can handle shock, vibration and temperature changes far in excess of traditional hard drives. That's important for desktop PCs, and essential for notebooks and laptops. Traditional mechanical hard drives spin at thousands of revolutions per minute. This takes power, and generates noise and heat. Since SSDs have no moving parts, there's no noise or vibration, and the lower power consumption helps keep things cool inside your PC.
Corsair SSD Toolbox Corsair SSD Toolbox is Corsair’s exclusive software for managing your Corsair solid state drive and maintaining its performance. It's a free download for owners of Corsair SSDs, and it works under Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8.
