Remember the Corsair Neutron Series XT SSD we tested in November? The 2.5" SATA drive pairs an eight-channel Phison controller with Toshiba A19 MLC NAND, and it's a decent all-around performer. The XT was formally introduced at CES this week, and it finally has an official price tag. Expect to pay $149.99 for the 240GB version, $269.99 for the 480GB, and $539.99 for the 960GB.
Those prices are pretty reasonable considering the XT's five-year warranty and 124TB endurance rating. It's a little unusual to see the 480GB and 960GB units with the same cost per gigabyte, though. The cost per gig typically drops as the capacity rises.
Newegg has all three Neutron XT variants available for sale, though the drives won't ship until January 13. It looks like they're discounted already, too, but that's not really the case. The 6-7% instant savings only bring the drives down to Corsair's suggested retail prices.
