Corsair Neutron Series GTX 240GB Review
16 November 2012
Summary: At a street price of Rs.18,200, the Corsair Neutron Series GTX 240GB SSD is not overly expensive when you consider the performance it delivers. Considering most 240GB SSDs hover around the 15K-16K price bracket, this pricing is not bad when given the performance. Yes, it’s still a lot of money, but then again, it’s not targeted at the everyday user in mind.
Conclusion: Shop around and you'll find that plenty of high-capacity SSDs are readily available at under £300. The 480GB SanDisk Extreme (£275) and the 512GB Crucial M4 (£285) are perfect examples; they offer excellent performance and high-capacity at a competitive price. Such drives serve the masses well, but for enthusiasts wanting every last drop of performance, a few manufacturers are battling it out for top-dollar supremacy.
Conclusion: It seems every man and his dog is producing high-speed consumer SSDs. But putting together a drive that's genuinely new takes some doing, and that's exactly what Corsair has achieved with the Neutron Series and Neutron Series GTX. Armed with a unique LM87800 controller from Link_A_Media Devices, the Neutron range arrives as a genuine challenger to the established hard-hitters and delivers enough raw speed to edge ahead of the competition in certain benchmarks.
