Complete GARBAGE

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Buy another brand, the Neutron series is sub par at best.
  • Pros: None. I cant think of a single good thing about this drive.
  • Cons: We have purchased over 10 for customers builds and have had 4 start giving S.M.A.R.T errors and then fail to boot a few days afterwards. Almost 50% failure rate is no acceptable! I have several Samsung and Intel SSD's out in the field and have yet to have one fail.

  • Summary: i enabled AHCI in the bios, SSD shows up in the disk boot priority of the bios with linux.
  • Pros: decent price for name brand 64BG SSD. some SSD's were cheaper but decided to go with corsair, this is my 1st corsair purchase of any hardware. did not have to move anything in pc case to install.
  • Cons: only using on P45 mobo now, but this is intended for next build so can't really rate it yet so that's why 3 eggs. was not free

Fast, works, but has one issue...

Anonymous, Newegg
4 October 2013
  • Summary: The con, to me, is a big issue since the SSD isn't very big and im already down to 25GB of free space after installing everything that needed to be on the SSD. Although, aside from that, this is a very awesome SSD that I nabbed at a sweet price.
  • Pros: I have my OS, most of my drivers, start-up apps, and my web browser on the SSD. With all of that, my computer boots up in under 10-15 seconds. Bought this SSD for $85 total; tax included, and free shipping; took 4 days to get to me, so not too bad in wait time. This is my first SSD; so it's super...
  • Cons: The only issue that I REALLY seem to have is that, 10GBs are just, missing. Before I installed everything, it only had 54GB of free space. Though, at some point during my installation of programs and the OS, I suddenly gained 10GB from out of the blue. Not sure if it was the software problem or t...

Great little SSD, at the right price

John C., Newegg
26 June 2013
  • Summary: At the right price, this is a good buy for budget builds. Picked up a few of these at close to 86 cents per gig. Hopefully they stand the test of time. I don't think they are economical at the retail price as you can get double the space for about the same price.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: none

Add on from below

Terry R., Newegg
8 June 2013
  • Summary: I have no qualms recommending this SSD with the experience I have had with it so far, and will update if I find a disadvantage.
  • Pros: Didn't mention the high marks were from there being NOTHING bad to report about this SSD. I did not have one problem with installing or putting the Win7 64bit OS on the SSD. It is very small drive, one of the 7mm class of thin ones. But it worked well in a pop out drive holder for hot swapping, t...
  • Cons: There really were none with this install of this SSD. I was real happy with it. Seems fasty too, though I don't think most people can tell one SSD speed from another unless they are running huge programs like video and animation rendering or transfering 200 Gigabytes at a time. But you can tell f...

Put in Win 7 64bit new build

Terry R., Newegg
8 June 2013
  • Summary: My new clean puter with nothing on it but Win7 and the chipset drivers took 18 seconds to boot, from pushing the on button to the little music introducing Windows. That is without any customizing with FAST themed start up programs that there are a load of in the motherboard BIOS.
  • Pros: This is the first SSD drive I have used or installed. It is great. I never used one before because of the all of the hassle of setup and config for Win XP. Now that I use Win 7, things couldn't be much easier. All you have to do is make sure your in the right Sata 3 port for booting from, and mak...
  • Cons: Size and price probably would be the main ones. Don't worry so much about speed, as long as it is in the main grouping of the reliable SSDs, it is MUCH faster and snappier than any regular hard drive. IF you have a SATA I or II controller setups for your ports in your motherboard, IT could be adv...

Reliable mid-range SSD

Aaron M., Newegg
31 May 2013
  • Summary: All in all, the Neutron is neither a bad SSD nor a standout. I'd have no difficulty recommending this particular model if only it were at a better price point. As is, older offerings from Samsung are both cheaper and substantially faster, so I'd have to recommend drives such as the 830 series over...
  • Pros: This Corsair Neutron comes with a 5-year warranty, but I doubt you'll need it. Corsair has had an excellent track record with reliability and their customer service is both prompt and forgiving if you do happen to get a bad egg. While it's not the fastest drive out there, the Neutron still delive...
  • Cons: Unfortunately, the Neutron does lag behind the competition in transfer rates, landing at the bottom of the heap with a measly 283 MB/s write and 420 MB/s read in HD Tune Pro. While those write speeds compare to older SSD's such as the Crucial M4, the Samsung 830 series and the OCZ Octane both blo...

Slim SSD drive

William B., Newegg
31 May 2013
  • Summary: I've found that you usually can get about twice speed from a solid state drive over a conventional 5400 and 7200 rpm drive. I have found though even with no moving parts that SSD drive can still fail and when they do it make it pretty hard to recovery any data over a conventional so I'd strongly...
  • Pros: This nice drive for boot drive for server that doesn't need much space as primary OS. Works great on Windows's server 2008 boots up about twice as fast as my original old 7200 rpm drive. Corsair made pretty universal fit any slim portable laptops or desktops with there 3.5' hard drive adapter. Al...
  • Cons: Not very much space for even as a boot drive as it don't leave you with much space for applications. With only 64 gb drive fully shows on Mac OS X and Windows initialize as 59.63 that pretty small with today's OS and basic applications.
