Corsair Neutron Series GTX 480GB SSD Review - Packaging

Corsair's lock on Link_A_Media Device's controller is holding. We've seen the 240GB capacity sizes of the Neutron and Neutron GTX, and now we get our turn with the massive 480GB drive.

Packaging

This is actually the first time we've seen the Neutron GTX package. Our first drive arrived in a brown box before the retail design was finished.

 

Corsair didn't stray too far from their proven design that dates back several years. One thing we did notice is the inclusion of the random read performance, 90K IOPS, something that isn't on the standard spec sheet.

On the back we found some general statements about the Neutron Series.

The inner package is the same as most other Corsair SSDs. The drive ships in a plastic case and the desktop adapter bracket is outside the plastic case so your drive won't arrive scratched.
