4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-512GM-C 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It is SSD, haven't met one that was slow yet.

Cons: Supplied disk migration software(Acronis True Image) does not work on drives that are GPT formatted. And, I think the UEFI BIOS may have also played a role.

End result I paid 15 bucks for Paragon's "Migrate OS to SSD" software.

Other Thoughts: Be aware of potential issues migrating GPT formatted OS drives on systems that have an UEFI BIOS.

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-512GM-C 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Excellent price (purchased on sale); I've had good success with AData SD cards

Cons: Dead on arrival. Returning to Newegg for replacement. Assuming that solves the problem, I'll update the review.

5 out of 5 eggsMuch better

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-512GM-C 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast and flawless so far. It was recognized instantly thru my usb dock. I had it cloning within a minute.

Cons: none this time around.

Other Thoughts: This was a replacement for a defective drive that was rma'd. Newegg turned it around in good time considering the weather we had. The manufacturer also sent contact info when they saw my first review. I didn't need to go that far, but it's always nice to know a 2nd option to a problem exists.

1 out of 5 eggsTime will tell

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-512GM-C 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Looks great. Specs show lots of promise. Newegg shipped it fast and it arrived in a well protected undamaged package.

Cons: Defective drive. Cannot access it. Showed up briefly and started to clone - then poof - could not see it. Tried in 2 different computers and 2 different external devices. Both setups would see other drives but not this Adata SSD. RMA;d it.

Other Thoughts: I have used Adata memory in several machines over several years with zero problems so I figured they would make a good SSD. Maybe not. See what the next unit does or it's off to a different brand. I have had no problems with SSD builds using Intel, Crucial and Plextor.

5 out of 5 eggsBest upgrade yet

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-512GM-C 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: After the primary HDD in my rig went out, I saw it as an excuse to upgrade. I was lucky enough to catch this on sale, and if you can do the same, BUY IT.

I'm one of the many that still run Win 7 x64 and through all of the initial installations and updates, to go from desktop, restart, to desktop would only take ~18sec.

While it's fractions of a second, there is a noticeable difference in load times.

Drive comes with a 3.5" adapter.

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: Setup:

i5 760 @ 2.8GHz
ASUS P7P55D-E LX mobo
8GB DDR3 1600 Kingston Hyper-X
SLi (2x) EVGA 560 Ti
A-Data 512GB SSD
WD 1TB secondary drive

3 out of 5 eggsFast but still leary. Horrible RMA process.

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-512GM-C 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: -These things are fast and recognized easily by our Intel RAID card.
-Inexpensive.

Cons: -One of six failed after 5 months.
-Worst RMA process, ever.

Other Thoughts: We purchased six of these to create a 2.5 TB RAID5 on a backup server. The card liked them and the RAID runs well and pretty darn fast. The idea was... let's buy consumer chips that have a long warranty... if any of them fail we'll just RMA them and keep the RAID up & happy. It took 5 months for one to fail. What I didn't realize... was that it takes a month to get a drive back. They won't cross-ship. You send it to them, they take two+ weeks to verify the failure, then they snail-mail one back to you via 5-7 day USPS. Talk about a long and arduous process...

1 out of 5 eggsExpensive paper weight

This review is from: ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-512GM-C 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It worked for a short while.

DON'T BUY THIS

Cons: After 5 months it just died. I tried every possible way to revive it but no luck.

DON'T BUY THIS

Other Thoughts: What if you were working on some important project, what if you were in some foreign country with your job, what if you had important files on it, personal or work/school related. There are a lot of "what if"s and for $400 I expect it to work properly.

DON'T BUY THIS
