1 out of 5 eggsJust Don't

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Customer service is OK

Cons: Multiple drive failures

Other Thoughts: Bought this with a new computer build a few years ago. I have sent it back for RMA twice, and it has started to go out for a third time (same symptoms each time). I've spent dozens of hours of troubleshooting and weeks of a drive-less computer while they ship me a new one.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked for 2 years

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - Fast enough. Never ran a speed test, but I never experienced a slowdown (while it was working fine) due to the SSD
- Fairly priced among drives
- All the other benefits of having an SSD

Cons: - Started to fail after 9-12 months of use. Had to reformat once, worked a little better, problems arose again.
- 2 years in, its finally given up completely. Can't install a new OS on it.
- Attempted to look for new drivers/firmware (maybe that could be the issue) but learned two things:

1) Your data is wiped when you update the firmware. Inconvenient if you have important documents and haven't backed anything up. Yet another hard lesson in "shut up and back up".

2) This device wasn't listed in the firmware update. Plenty of others, just seems like they skipped over this one. Interesting.

Other Thoughts: It was good while it lasted. Once you get a SSD going back to a spinning disk drive is painful. I have an OS loaded on a conventional drive until I get a new SSD and it feels like going back to the 90s and using 56k.

Could be that I got unlucky and received a drive with problems off the line, but thankfully they have a warranty for when that happens.

I'm still covered under the warranty, so hopefully the issues are resolved. Still...after this experience I feel like I'll put a Linux distro on the RMA'd drive for fun and rely on a more trusted, well-known brand for my main OS.

5 out of 5 eggsStill working beautifully

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Read/Write speeds are actually what they say they are (around 500 mb/s for both read and write). This is the biggest plus for me, a lot of product's specifications don't match with the benchmarked times you do on your own.

I've has this for At least 1.5 years (closer to 2 years) with no problems what-so-ever. SSD-Life still says it's at 100% health after it's been powered on 826 times. Also says its estimated lifetime from now is 9years 5months. It's going to last much longer than my PC is, which is just fine by me.

I don't use a lot of space, only play a couple games or so at a time and only edit 1 video at any given time. Therefore this is my primary and only drive for everything. Which means my pc feels way faster than any HDD pc no matter what kind of parts they're using.

Cons: At the time there was no cloning software that supported GPT, so I had to reinstall windows 8. Not really the ssd's fault..

2 out of 5 eggsWorks but for how long?

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The drive is fast. I never had any issues with it while it was working.

Cons: The fault of this drive really comes from it's inability to work for an extended period of time. It was working for a year straight and then died and I had to warranty. ADATA fixed my drive and in a couple of weeks sent it back to me. It lasted another 8 months and all was going well until it just died again. I'm going to try and warranty again since it is 3 years warranty.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, I may have had a stroke of bad luck. But i think other manufacturers like Samsung may have a higher quality SSD that might not require 2 weeks of fix time every 9 - 12 months.

5 out of 5 eggsASX900S3-256GM-C

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Received shipment fast in in good condition Drive performs as expected. Have been using for 3 months now, no issues yet.

Acronis software works great for cloning OS disk but the ADATA supplied version does not support cloning to a Raid 1 volume. The software just hangs without any error message when calculating space after filtering out directories. I suppose the full Acronis version is required for this. No problem to a single disk though.

Cons: None yet.

5 out of 5 eggsWould buy it again

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Low cost, reliable, fast

Cons: need to reinstall the system, porting doesn't really work.

Other Thoughts: I had some bad experience with my previous SSD two years ago so it take me some courage to try this one out, especially it is a new brand to me.
However, everything turns out to be much better than I expected.
The speed of this drive feels like a top end model, no lag, no lost+found files, nothing.
With such solid price, i am considering to buy a larger one for me so that I can give the smaller one to my mon. I think She should like it even she doesn't really care about the speed most of time.

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast but unreliable.

Cons: Went out cold after ONLY 32 DAYS. Weeks of work out in smoke. What do I do now?

Other Thoughts: Stay awa from SSD's. So far, one Samsung and one ADATA 256 GB that broke down. after only a month. I am discustingly disappoionted.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Works perfect after several months of use. I researched about it and thought that it offered great performance, reliability, and with reported less compatibility and installation problems. At the time of purchase it wasn't the least expensive brand and I wasn't familar with ADATA at all. After installation I was so impressed and satisfied with the fast boot and response times that I will probably buy another one..

Cons: None
