Corsair Neutron XT (240GB, 480GB & 960GB) SSD Review: Phison S10 Debuts

 

The ugly truth is that the SSD market has been tough for almost all the typical PC component vendors lately. With Samsung, SanDisk, and Micron/Crucial being serious about the client market, it' s not easy for other companies to find a way to provide...

All in all, while it is an improvement over the S8, the S10 (and by extension, the Neutron XT) lacks a 'wow' factor that would really help it stand out from the rest. The TLC NAND support in the S10 is certainly a nice feature, but I don't want to...

One Minute Review: Corsair Neutron XT SSD 240GB

 

C orsair has entered an SSD market that's saturated with brands and models, with little to differentiate. Ever the image-proud company, Corsair is playing at the top end, with its new Neutron XT SSDs, up against the best Samsung, SanDisk and Intel have...

Solid performance as a great price.

Arrived DOA

 

Will be trying my luck with a Samsung EVO this time around. Sad, I've always liked Corsair products, but those have always been fans, coolers and PSU's. First time buying an SSD from them and I get burned, doesn't leave a very good taste in my mouth.

Corsair?

Arrived DOA.

One messed up after 5 months

 

- Pretty fast - Pretty big (though I only got the 240gb)

- One messed up after 5 months (probably sooner but I don't know if the things I was experiencing prior was due to the failing drive). If I access certain parts of my raid for too long, it bsods. The worst part about a raid is that it is nearly...

Excellent Drive!

 

I purchased two of these to use in my most recent build. I connected them in a RAID 0 configuration and installed Windows 8.1 in a matter of minutes. Afterwards, I tested them with Crystal Disk Mark and was more than happy with the results. Sequential...

Quad-Core processor, outstanding performance, thin and lightweight, high-end features at a modest price.

None so far. I will edit this review if that changes though.

This SSD works beyond Warp Speed.

 

Yes I would highly recommend it to everyone. Yes I would purchase it again. A word of caution however, If you will be installing this SSD in an older case, be certain that it can be mounted properly. Fortunately this was a new Antec 900 case with had a...

I didn't think it would be possible to launch Win 10 from button push to "ready to work" in say 5 seconds. Its incredible.

None so far

Corsair CSSD-N480GBXT

 

good storage, better speed, windows starts in mere seconds

Took a few days of use for it to rate higher benchmark scores for read write speeds. Found that odd at first -an egg

Faaaaaaaast!

 

SOLID product from Corsair, they did a good job in the development of this SSD.

I've been using this for a while now and feel comfortable giving the review. I came from a Samsung 850 Pro 500GB SSD. This Corsair Neutron XT is quicker than my old SSD, and is seeming to be much more reliable already. I did one reformat on my previous...

Zero cons.

None that I can see yet, I'm a little worried about other reviews saying it died quickly so time will tell.
