PC hardware component manufacturer Corsair today announced the release of the Force Series LS solid-state drive (SSD) line.

The drives feature SATA 3 6GB per second support for optimal performance with the latest systems, and are backward compatible with SATA revision 1.0 and 2.0 for maximum compatibility. The new drives support TRIM, garbage collection, and S.M.A.R.T. commands, and include built-in an advanced dynamic and static wear-leveling algorithm to extend the lifespan of the drive flash memory. The Force Series LS SSDs are available in 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB capacities at MSRPs of $70, $110, and $200. The SSDs are available immediately from Corsair's network of retailers.
