In this review we look at the all new Corsair Force LX 256GB SSD. The series is to compete with Samsung and Micron mostly, in both price and performance. The end result is a very capable and fast SSD ...

Thanks for the review. I can see some really good performance over there, especially Application Loading.
It's funny to see how they saved the costs by using a smaller PCB.

Did you experience any performance-related issues? Did iops drop after write-heavy workload?

Thanks for the review boss!

There's one problem tho with the drive's pricing. The Crucial MX100 256GB is around 85 while the Corsair LX 256GB is going for 110.

That's a pretty big difference unfortunately.

Mine just got here today (MX100 512GB). It's waiting for my 4790K to accompany it.
