With the Neutron GTX from Corsair you get a 240 Gigabyte SSD which is based on a LAMD LM87800 controller and Toggle NAND Flash memory from Toshiba. These have been manufactured using a 24 nanometer process and the exact product number is TH58TEG802HBA8C. Unfortunately we don't know how many P/E-cycles these chips allow but since a smaller manufacturing process reduces P/E-cycles we guess that these chips must be somewhere between 3'000 and 5'000 P/E-cycles.

A closer look at the delivery shows that there is 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch adapter bracket, a set of screws and a manual. There is no disk imaging software included in the bundle.
