Taking a look at the SSD itself, as I mentioned on the previous page, the Force LX series features lime green accents to contrast against the black/white theme already present; I really like the contrast and I dig  the vibrant colour chosen.

The main difference between the LX drive and multiple others on the market is the use of a metal case; over the plastic casing most manufacturers go for.  This however doesn’t mean that the LX 256GB is heavy as it only weighs in at around 50grams.

The Corsair Force LX 256GB SSD comes equipped with a SATA3 (6GB/s) interface which is capable of read speeds of up to 560MB/s.  It is powered via the SATA power connector and draws a maximum of 3w when in use (0.6w in idle).

On the rear, we have a plain black metal casing which is held in place by 3 silver nuts; a nice contrast.  With the stickers being located on the front, the rear is a little bare but then again, it is an SSD and the rear is usually either against the side of the chassis or facing towards the bottom when mounted.
