Excerpt: Corsair are using Computex to launch/announce a wide range of products from cases through USB drives and even new GPU cooling products. They also recently launched a new product in their SSD range, the Force LX.
Summary: The Force LS series is interesting in many ways. It is an affordable SSD series, it's isn't slow, it isn't the fastest SSD on the block either. However the Phison controller used in combo with the 19nm toggle NAND did surprise me as the package combined results in a SSD that can keep up very well...
Summary: I really like the Phison S8 controller and have one in a notebook I use a few times a week. Somewhere along the line, I had to see for myself if the low queue depth IOPS performance was as impressive in real life, as it is on benchmark charts.
Excerpt: Corsair has launched a new line of affordable SSDs, using the lesser known Phison PS3108 controller. We tested the 240 GB model to find out whether Corsair's new series can hold its own against some pretty stiff competition in terms of price and performance.
Corsair Force Series LS 240GB SSD Review – Phison Controller Displays Increased Write Speeds
3 October 2013
Conclusion: As implemented in Corsair’s Force Series LS 240GB SSD, the Phison PS-3108 controller is a solid performer. While the overall read performance of the Force LS is certainly competitive, the write speeds in many benchmarks were surprisingly strong.
Summary: Corsair's Neutron Series has already demonstrated that not every decently performing SSD must use a SandForce controller. Their new Force LS is based on a Phison PS3108 controller performing decently enough to compete with all but the latest high-end drives.
Pros: Solid performance, Good MySQL enterprise 48 threads results, 7.5 mm thin—Ultrabook compatible, Supports TRIM, 3-year warranty
Cons: Not available in the US, More expensive than comparable drives, Not as fast as other high-end drives (which are more expensive, though)
Corsair Force GS 240GB SATA III (F240GBGS-BK PK1SSD Drive)+ Firmware 5.03 Review
31 August 2012
Conclusion: This is the first time I am seeing Corsair grabbing the SanDisk’s Toggle flash NAND but seeing reviews of other SSDs from few review sources with same flash NAND- and SanDisk Extreme, I think this is going to be a trend from now onwards.
Summary: The Force GS 240GB is the latest and greatest SandForce SSD from Corsair, utilizing high performance Toggle-mode NAND to finish first in our real world performance benchmarks. The margin of victory was quite small however, only slightly edging out the ADATA XPG SX910 128GB which uses speed-binned...
Summary: We are reviewing the Corsair Force GT 240GB SSD. Corsair provides enthusiasts with both sides of the SSD controller coin by offering Marvell and SandForce controlled SSDs in its product lines.
