Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB review

 

Corsair has made a big, peppy SSD at a nice price

Terrific consumer-level performance ; Good price-per-GB ratio via online vendors ; Zippy performance via new LM87800 controller chip and stable firmware

Not built for enterprise-level work ; MSRP over $50 higher than online vendor price, users will want to shop around

From an IT professional/systems administrator perspective, the Neutron GTX is impressive, speedy but not remarkable. However, it trumped its competitors on sequential write tests. For the consumer looking to make the jump to from a standard SATA drive...

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD review

 

Corsair lists 85k write IOPS for the Neutron GTX, a good figure when you realise that many SSDs struggle to hit that with their read operations, which are typically faster in solid-stateland. In our tests we got close to that figure with 77k IOPS...

The Corsair Neutron GX is a very strong candidate in this group, all the more surprising given the original and novel choice of controller technology. If low weight, long warranty and stellar write performance appeal, take a very close look at this...

Nothing to mention.

Let us summarise the most important positive and negative points below: Throughout this review, the Corsair Neutron GTX has gone head to head with the best and fastest SATA SSDs currently available. The Neutron GTX is state of the art, and competes...

Corsair Neutron 240GB & Neutron GTX 240GB SSDs Review

 

Currently, the SSD market has stagnated with every manufacturer trying to beat the competition on price rather than focus upon innovation to

This review may primarily be looking at the new Neutron series from Corsair but it can also be considered a proving ground for Link A Media’

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB Solid State Drive Review

 

When we looked at the Neutron SSD not too long ago, on the whole I was very impressed with the capability of the new LAMD controller and its potential to take on the known and well trusted SandForce SF-2281 IC. As expected with a next level model, the...

Corsair Neutron 240GB and Neutron GTX 240GB SSD Review

 

Today we are looking at the latest Solid State Drives from Corsair – the Neutron and Neutron GTX, in 240GB capacities. Both of these drives are using the latest Link A Media (LAMD) controller which is 6Gbps capable and is said to deliver stunning...

Balanced high performance with incompressible and compressible data ; class leading IOPS performance ; slim line 7mm chassis ; 5 year warranty

Not the cheapest drives on the market

Kitguru says: We weren’t expecting OCZ’s Vertex 4 to come under threat so soon, but the Neutron is a serious contender for top position.

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB Review

 

Can the new Neutron GTX Series with Link_A_Media (LAMD) Controller affirm itself as a worthy contender for the SSD crown? Find out in our review!

Good build quality ; Excellent performance (especially sequential) ; Lightweight – ideal for notebooks ; Affordable ; 5 years warranty

There are none

Was moving away from SandForce a good decision? Does this new LAMD Controller have any real advantage over SandForce? It certainly does.

Corsair Neutron GTX 480GB Review

 

When we last paid a visit to the Corsair Neutron GTX late last year, we declared it one wicked-fast SSD, but it was unfortunately nicked at the finish line by the Samsung 840 Pro. Corsair isn't too worried about that, though, and seems to have adopted...

Expensive, not the fastest in every test

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB Review

 

Superfast; ultra-slim, five year warranty

Not as fast as Samsung's 840 and some SandForce Drives

Corsair’s Neutron GTX is the first solid-state drive to arrive in the Lab sporting a brand-new eight-channel controller from a company named Link A Media Devices (LAMD for short). The controller promises top-notch I/O performance, especially in a...
