ADATA’s S511 utilizes the new generation SandForce SF-2200 series controller, with native support for the SATA 6Gb/s platform. The S511 completely brings into play the revolutionary high-speed performance of solid state drives, embracing a new world of transfer performance. With read and write speeds twice that of SSDs using the older SATA II specification, the S511 reached 550/520MB read and write speeds respectively, with 4K random write speeds as high as 60,000 IOPS in real world testing. The S511 takes productivity, gaming, and multimedia applications to the next level to work in perfect symmetry with the latest enthusiast platforms, while easily integrating into today’s mobile and desktop platforms with Windows 7 TRIM support.

  • newegg Enhanced Computing Efficiency Currently, the major processor platforms are gradually making the changeover to native SATA 6Gb/s chips. However, traditional mechanical drives are not capable of the corresponding high-speed read and write tasks. The S511 solid state drive provides vibration-free running and low power consumption while taking full advantage of the 6Gb/s bandwidth transmission capability. In both desktop and laptop computers, and in a broad range of computing environments, SSDs built to the latest specification are an irreplaceable advantage.
  • newegg TRIM Support The S511 adopts specially selected Flash chips from reliable manufacturers, and supports the Windows TRIM command (Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2). TRIM optimization command can directly delete stored data in the Flash memory and release unused space (Free Blocks) to be used for system writes immediately. This results in more accelerated transfer and write performance for solid state drives, and is also effective in slowing down efficiency decline and depletion chances, maintaining effective operation and extending the life of the disk.
  • newegg System Backup Tools Eliminate Installation Operating Procedures All purchasers of the S511 can download the free Disk Migration Utility software. It facilitates the quick transfer of all files to the new solid state drive, significantly reducing the troublesome and time-consuming process of reinstalling software and restoring data from backups.

3 out of 5 eggsBe Careful

Pros: Very fast. Stable after much difficulty, effort and tinkering.

Cons: Installation of software was not straight forward. SSD is unstable with normal install. Disk loses communication with operating system and drops out causing system crash.

Other Thoughts: My final system: intel 2011 socket, core i7 3820, win7 64 bit, 16GB RAM, Gigabyte X79 UD3 mobo, GTX 560Ti, 2 of these ADATAs in raid0 on Intel X79 controller. First install with raid0 was unstable. I also tried these without raid with same problems. Ended up getting an Intel Cherryville 520 SSD, installing Windows fresh, installing all updates for OS and firmware and drivers, then finally copying stable image with Acronis True Image Home to the ADATA Raid0 volume. Very nice after that: stable, blazing FAST. I have read that there is no trim support for RAID0, so I'll see how long my system lasts like this :-(

2 out of 5 eggsFast when it works

Pros: Very fast. Easy installation. Firmware update was simple.

Cons: Very unreliable operation, even after firmware updates.

Other Thoughts: Currently have a request in to their tech support for additional help, but I would definitely NOT recommend this drive to anyone. For almost $500, I expected error free operation out of the box and that is absolutely not what has been delivered. Seriously. Skip this drive.

3 out of 5 eggsFast SSD, but not problem free

Pros: very fast, easy to install

Cons: Sometimes OS loses connection to drive and windows crashes. Must power off before motherboard will recognize again

Other Thoughts: I have updated to the latest firmware and the drive still has this issue. If I leave the computer on, after a few days it will always crash. firmware still has some issues

5 out of 5 eggsFaster than a Scalded Cat

Pros: Ultra fast, ultra quiet. Hasn't given me one BSOD/hiccup.

This model was the least expensive of the Tier 1 recommended SSD drives in a recent online article from a major review site.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I was sure to update the firmware using my old machine before installing an OS on this drive. I decided to go with one 240GB drive instead of two 120s as Win7 doesn't support TRIM in RAID0.

1 out of 5 eggsWarning

Pros: It's like driving the worlds fastest racecar....

Cons: ....right into a brick wall.

The Sandforce SF-2281 controller on this and drives from other manufacturers has problems. The drive will periodically disappear from under the OS. If this is your system drive you have just a few moments before the BSOD when the OS tries to page something.

Other Thoughts: The speed difference between this and the more mature marvel controllers just isn't worth it. I'm stepping back from Sandforce until they get this sorted out. As of Oct 2011 they have not.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We apologize for the inconveniences you had with our products. Please note that there is new firmware available on our website for SandForce 2281 controller update (see link below). The new firmware will solve all known issues with the S511. Please make sure the SSD is set to AHCI mode when running update. If you are still experiencing issues or need additional support, please contact our office directly:
