Corsair Force LX 256GB Review

Packaging & First Look

the exterior packaging is typical Corsair with the bold font white font on a black background. The package carries a green hue upon which there are a number of features described with particular attention drawn to the fact that this drive is just 7mm in height.

The flipside features a multilingual statement describing the benefits of replacing a mechanical drive with an SSD. Below this is the serial number atop of a sticker and a notification that this product carries a Corsair 3 year Guarantee.

Aside from the exterior card packaging, the SSD inside is protected by a plastic blister pack. The SDD is surprisingly not encased with plastic but with a metal case. The case however does not seem to add much to the weight of the drive because it is still extremely light and thanks to the 7mm height, more than capable of being suited to an Ultrabook. Again we see Corsair have stayed true to their own theme of green and black which looks great especially with the black brushed aluminium casing.

The backside of the drive features nothing other than a recessed nut holding the drive together as that drive features and serial sticker are all on the front of the drive.

Overall, the drive looks a cut above it's budget price tag. LX could easily be an acronym for luxury as this drive feels more luxurious than some other, much more expensive offerings we have tested of late. Let's see if the internals can match the plush exterior.
