Corsair Neutron GTX SSD Review (240GB): Link A Media Controller Testedby Anand Lal Shimpi on August 20, 2012 6:00 AM EST
The Neutron GTX consumes a fair bit of power when idle, which is disappointing. At 1.16W doing nothing, the Neutron GTX can have a tangible impact on battery life. Load power consumption is much more competitive. It's not what I would consider low, but it's not unreasonably high either.
The ONFi based Neutron is noticeably more power hungry under load unfortunately. In both of our write tests the regular Neutron gets very close to 5W of power draw. If you're going to use one of these drives in a notebook, make it the Neutron GTX.
