Corsair Neutron GTX 120 GB Model Number?


Recommended Posts

Newegg currently has two separate items/products for the 120GB version of the Neutron GTX.


The first (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233404) is $124 and boasts a random read speed of up to 95,000 IOPS and write of up to 84,000 IOPS. This is interesting because it does not seem to match with the official specifications from Corsair. If you look at the images, the area where the second version (see below) lists the speed in IOPS merely says 120 GB.


The second (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-233-342&ParentOnly=1) is $134 and lists the maximum read speed at 80,000 IOPS and write at 87,000. The images of the product box reflect this speed specification.


Is the first product simply an error on Newegg's part? Which is the "legit" product so to speak? In other words, which of the two would you buy?


Thank you

They are two different parts.


The first link is: CSSD-N120GBGTXB-BK


The second link is: CSSD-N120GBGTX-BK


Thank you. I did not realize there were two different versions of the drive. It seems that they are nearly identical. The less expensive one has a greater sequential write speed (84k vs 80k) while the second for $14 more has only a 5 MB/s faster random read speed (555 vs 550).


All that considered, I still don't know which of the two I should purchase. The price doesn't matter. I just want to know that there will be no noticeable difference between the two drives in a real world environment (used as an operating system drive and not for benchmarks).
