Corsair Neutron GTX SSD

The Corsair Neutron GTX is an exciting new solid-state drive. This is partly because it's one of the first SSDs from Corsair that I've worked with and mostly because it would be an excellent drive for any computer.

The new drive is the performance version of the more budget Corsair Neutron drive, which is less expensive and slower. But the Neutron GTX costs more for good reason: it's one of the fastest SSDs I've seen and it's the fastest among all 7-millimeter-thick SSDs I've reviewed.

The drive's excellent performance is enough make up for its cost of around $1 per gigabyte, which, though not really super expensive or the most expensive, is still comparatively high.
