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

5 out of 5 eggsNo failures

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

Pros: Drives work very well. I have 6 of them in a server in a RAID 50 configuration and many other ADATA drives in other consumer systems and I have never had a single failure. As a matter of fact, I have had failures with several other drive manufacturers but never with ADATA and that is why I chose the drive for my customer's server. I was looking for more drives to supplement the RAID array and saw all the comments by users saying that they have failed and thought I would chime in and tell you that it is my experience that these drives never fail. I have myself purchased more than 20 drives of different sizes and types by ADATA and never had a single failure. They are fast and perform well and some of the least expensive MLC drives I have seen. I pitted them against a server with an identical controller running Intel drives and got comparable performance ratings with the same RAID controller.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I love the fact that it comes with a mounting bracket for desktop computers. That and it's less expensive than other drives of comparable speed and size. What could be better?

5 out of 5 eggsFabulous SSD

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

Pros: I have no words... this is my 2nd Adata 256 GB SDD and I would recommend it to all! It flies on my machine.

Cons: Owner's manual very minimal but not a con for those who know what to do.. still trying to figure what is the purpose of that single sided adhesive frame which is supplied with each Adata SDD.. there are no instructions.

Other Thoughts: I do not see any issues. Excellent manufacture and product.

Pros: Great Price, Insane speed!

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

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible SSD

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

Pros: Cheap. Decent read/write speeds. Works for 1 week.

Cons: This is the 2nd drive of 2 which failed. The first drive failed after 1 week. It's S.M.A.R.T. showed read errors, so doing a sector analysis of the drive, there was over 1.5GB of defective sectors. I RMA'd the drive and the 2nd drive upon receipt, showed no bad sectors. After only 1 week, the computer would freeze randomly, task manager shows the drive at 100%. Doing a sector analysis of the 2nd drive showed over 30GB of defective sectors in the SSD.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy. This is 2/2 drives that went bad after only a week. Look at the other reviews around this time period.

Manufacturer Response:
