Corsair Neutron XT 240GB

Corsair Neutron XT 240GB Review – Considering the company has a whopping eight different SSD product categories, we expected the Neutron XT to deliver blazing performance. While it’s no slouch, unfortunately it’s still not quite fast enough to beat the best of the best.

Corsair-Neutron-XT-240GB Corsair Neutron XT 240GBA quad core Phison PS3110-S10 powers this SSD, making it one of the only drives on the market to use a Phison controller. This in turn manages the Toshiba A19nm MLC flash memory, and it ships in the standard 2.5 inch form factor, with a depth of 7mm, making it suitable for most laptops. A generous five year warranty is included, suggesting that Corsair has faith in the SmartECC™ and SmartRefresh™ data protection technologies provided by the Phison controller. It also includes SmartFlush™ and GuaranteedFlush™ protection in the case of sudden power failures.

The Neutron XT delivers outstanding sequential read and write performance. It’s also extremely fast when it comes to 4K QD16 IOPS, suggesting that it’ll make quite the capable OS drive. Alas, the rest of the figures simply don’t match those of the fastest drives.


  • Excellent sequential and 4K QD16 IOPS performance
  • 5 year warranty


  • Other performance figures are lacking
  • More expensive than faster drives (Price $219)
