When we published our Neutron/Neutron GTX SSD review this morning we didn't have official pricing from Corsair. That's not all that unusual as pricing for many components can be decided at the very last minute. We've had GPU launches where final pricing didn't come down until a couple of days before reviews went live. 

The final pricing (and ordering part numbers) of the Neutron and Neutron GTX is as follows:

Corsair Neutron/Neutron GTX Pricing
  120GB 240GB
Corsair Neutron $119.99 (CSSD-N120GB3-BK) $209.99 (CSSD-N240GB3-BK)
Corsair Neutron GTX $139.99 (CSSD-N120GBGTX-BK) $249.99 (CSSD-N240GBGTX-BK)

The bundles come with a 3.5" adapter and the drive itself. The Neutron's pricing, at least in MSRP form, is pretty competitive. Street prices tend to be a bit more aggressive so it's tough to say if etailers will stick to these targets or go lower. The Neutron GTX is a bit more pricey at 240GB than I expected. The sweet spot for a high-performance 240GB drive is really around $200. 

The Neutron is a pretty good alternative if you want to save some money, it did very well in our Storage Bench suite. I do prefer the sequential write speed and load power characteristics of the GTX though.

    Are you sure those product codes are right? Seems like they should be transposed.. Reply

    They're too expensive. The GTX should be closer to the 256GB Vertex 4's $210 and the non-GTX should be closer to the 256GB Agility 4's $190. At these prices, they aren't worth it. Reply

    I don't even know what to do with SSD MSRP's anymore. Maybe they'll stick to the price, maybe they'll actually be priced 25% less retail. Anyone's guess. Reply
