Unless you're sporting really old hardware, an SSD is the best sure-fire way to boost the performance of your desktop or laptop computer. There is so much choice now it's difficult to know whether there is a significant difference between various SSDs...

The Corsair Neutron Series 256GB isn't the speediest SSD we've seen, but it's in the upper average. The price, however, is a bit high compared to, say, the SanDisk Ultra...

Nothing will generate negative press faster than a NAND refresh that results in lower capacity or performance. A few years ago, OCZ notoriously swapped the NAND on the Vertex SSD Series without informing customers. Unfortunately this led to lower...

In June, 2012 we published a large group test of SSDs with capacities of 120/128 GB and 240/256 GB . Those are still the most popular sizes, judging from what people search for on Hardware.Info. The world of SSDs didn't stand still, and since then a...

The Corsair Neutron 240GB SSD performed well throughout our battery of tests. The drive didn’t clearly lead in performance in any one category, but overall performance is very good and competitive with some of the best solid state drives currently...

Corsair's move to the Link A Media LM87800 controller has been a good thing. The Neutron GTX performs better, thanks to its faster toggle-mode NAND, but this SSD : the Corsair Neutron with its synchronous MLC NAND, is still a very fast drive - at a great...

Once upon a time, it was as simple as asynchronous NAND bad, synchronous NAND good. Well, as simple as things get when you're talking about the workings of an SSD. Synchronous NAND was capable of producing very similar synthetic benchmark results to...

A Neutron array is pretty hard to beat and with RAID 0 TRIM functioning as perfectly as it does on a Neutron array there is really nothing not to like. Neutrons are the only drives available that feature Link A Media’s Amber flash processing unit...

Corsair is perhaps the most active manufacturer when it comes to SSDs, actively jumping at any opportunity to expand their products range and offer more options to potential customers. The company today offers tens of SSDs through eight product...

The Neutron 120GB exceeded our expectations and that’s not something easily accomplished. This particular drive even though handicapped slightly by firmware just destroyed most of our testing and emerged as a drive we feel you should definitely...

As you may or may not know, the vast majority of SSDs on the market utilise the SandForce SF-2281 controller and whilst this controller has certainly made its mark by dominating the market, it like most things does have its downsides. Earlier in the year...

It seems like every second month we're talking about SSDs and how quickly they're becoming an essential part of any gaming system. As prices have slowly come down from above $3 per Gigabyte not even 12 months ago, we're now seeing a floor of $1 per...

A year ago, if you wanted a fast SSD you had the choice between a SandForce- and a Marvell-based product. It's never good having only two options, but fortunately the market evolved. At the end of last year Samsung launched the 830 series of SSDs,...

The Neutron series from Corsair powered by the rookie Link_A_Media Devices LM87800 appears to be another solid competitor with the potential for shaking up the SSD market and grabbing a good chunk of market share although consumers might be wary of...

Neutron is a brand new drive and will undoubtedly have performance changing firmware introduced many times so we expect to see the Neutron evolve rapidly. The Neutron has a lot to offer and is a drive that we recommend you own. RAID 0 TRIM has...

Neutron is another effort by Corsair (an effort to be commended) to provide the consumer with a drive that digests incompressible data as well as compressible data very much like the Performance Pro. Like the Performance Pro,the Neutron is a...

Corsair is certainly not bias when it comes to picking hardware components, focusing on giving its customers the best performance regardless of what vendor used to deliver an edge. Corsair's approach to the SSD game has held true over time, it was...

Without pricing information for either the Neutron or Neutron GTX, we feel like this article can only tell part of the story. Due to time constraints with release dates and our inability to update this article as soon as the drives hit Newegg (I'll...
