Corsair Neutron SATA III SSD Review
Whoo-Ya! Great review Marco.
$189.00 isn't bad at all. I love the decline of SSD prices over the past year. I look forward to it continuing.
Corsair is hitting a lot of markets, (cases, keyboards, cpu coolers, speakers, fans, etc) and ~all~ of what they make is a cut above.
They're one of the best brands out there.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Agreed, .79 cents/GB is pretty dang good for this sort of performance. Way to go Corsair!

If this is a review of the Neutron why are the specs for the OCZ Vector listed instead of the specs for the Neutron?
About 80% of normal daily disk access measured in Microsoft's diskmon is small file reads and writes of 512K or smaller with most being writes.
The Neuton GTX and regular Neutron SSDs are great performers when benchmarked empty of data and are the best consumer SSDs for consistency but who buys an SSD to leave it empty.
The Neutron SSDs lose half of their performance when the drive is half filled with data.
The very high amount of power consumed at idle is also not so good.for an SSD.
Shoot---that was a typo in the specs header that I failed to correct. The specs listed were/are correct though (http://bit.ly/Xn47Sh). Thanks for the head's up!

Really please that SSD's have finally dropped to reasonable price levels - my first 64gb SSD cost more than this 256gb one!
