Corsair Neutron NX500 800GB SSD Review

AS SSD is a great free tool designed just for benching Solid State Drives. It performs an array of sequential read and write tests, as well as random read and write tests with sequential access times over a portion of the drive.

AS SSD includes a sub suite of benchmarks with various file pattern algorithms but this is difficult in trying to judge accurate performance figures.



Under the AS SSD benchmark, the read score of the NX500 drops below that of the Corsair Force MP500 drive while the write score of the new drive is significantly improved compared to the previous drive.

    I’d be more tempted to read this review if it wasn’t across 13 damn pages.

    How does it compare to Samsung’s 960 pro in 512gb and 1tb ssds? I’m simply too lazy to look for old 960 reviews.

    I would imagine that like you and myself, EVERYONE reading this review would like to know how it compares to the current champion, the Samsung 960 Pro, so I find it quite ridiculous that they wouldn’t include such a comparison.

    You do know there is an option to view all pages on one page, right?!

    I guess I’m not the only lazy one and I don’t write reviews. Or is this actually a “preview”? It’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference these days.
