Corsair Neutron XT 240GB Solid State Drive Review
17 March 2015
Summary: Final Thoughts
Corsair always seems to impress whether its with their cases, solid state drives, coolers, etc. We always seem to rate their products best in class in many categories and the Neutron XT solid state drive is no different.
Pros: – Great performance in all tests, – 5year warranty, – One of the fastest drives we have tested lately, – Great feature set, – Works with Corsair SSD toolbox
Corsair Neutron XT SSD Review (240GB) – New Phison Controller Creates a Top Contender
17 November 2014
Conclusion: When considering all form factors, the 2.5″ notebook SSD comprises the largest segment and should for some time, bar popularity of the M.2 in the next few years. Even then, there will still be a very large number of those holding on to SATA based machines where typical hard drives have been, or...
Corsair's Neutron Series XT solid-state drive reviewed
17 November 2014
Summary: We'd normally bust out our famous value scatters to put the Neutron Series XT's performance and pricing into perspective. The drive isn't due to be available until next month, though, and Corsair has yet to set final pricing. Our value analysis will have to wait.
Corsair Neutron XT 240GB SATA SSD Review - First look at Phison PS3110-S10
17 November 2014
Excerpt: At that time we only knew that Phison was going to team up with another SSD manufacturer to get these to market. We now know that manufacturer is Corsair, and their new product is to be called the Neutron XT. How do we know this? Well, we've got one sitting right here:
Conclusion: From the benchmark results, the S10 is a fair successor to Phison's S8 platform. However, in terms of overall performance against the compeition, it is difficult to be impressed. Despite the added processing power in the controller, the expectation of a big increase in performance over the S8 was a...
Corsair Neutron & Neutron GTX: All Capacities Tested
16 August 2013
Conclusion: The 480GB Neutron GTX didn't reveal any surprises as its performance is for the most part the same as what the 240GB model provides. It can't challenge Samsung's SSD 840 or OCZ's Vector but when compared with for instance Plextor M5 Pro and high-end SandForce SSDs, it's a competitive drive.
Summary: The balancing act of replacing older NAND in existing SSD product lines is a tricky one. Many manufacturers have been stung with the bad public relations of releasing 'new' SSDs under the same SKU and not being entirely clear about the performance ramifications.
Summary: Corsair moves to a smaller 19nm Toshiba Toggle MLC NAND with its LAMD-controlled Neutron GTX Series of SSDs. This shrink comes amongst stiff competition from other manufacturers, and a new SSD that is very similar to the Neutron GTX.
Neutron GTX 240GB SSD isn't quite the high speed mover like the Force GT but it's also not the slowest SSDs in the lab. Not to sound like a broken record, but the LM87800 LAMD controller seems to require a bit more tuning in the very important 4K performance range.
Pros: Competitive overall system performance, 7mm case works with many thinner notebooks, Good compatitiblity despite relatively new controller, Mounting adapter and hardware included
Cons: Performance doesn't justify today's price, LAMD LM87800 controller still needs some firmware tuning, Somewhat slower than comparable synchronous SSDs
Summary: Releasing successful SSD series is something Corsair is very keen on. Their enthusiast SATA3 segment is now certainly filled up with many SSDs, and each and every one of them is impressive.
Honestly I didn't expect too much of the Neutron series with that fairly unknown controller.
