1 out of 5 eggsThat's it, I'm done with Adata

This review is from: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ASP900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Seems to work well for a while

Cons: First one died after 5 months, they replaced it and 5 months later the replacement died.

Other Thoughts: No more Adata SSDs for me!

5 out of 5 eggsNice laptop upgrade

This review is from: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ASP900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Met expectations. Faster, but see other thoughts. Low power usage; extended battery life in a laptop. There's not much else to say about a SSD; I did not and have no plans to benchmark it vs. other drives in this use. It was an excellent upgrade in a Thinkpad X140E though.

Cons: None really. Might ultimately be a little small in this use, but time will tell and that's not the drive's fault.

Other Thoughts: Cloned using an external USB 3.0 enclosure and then installed in a Thinkpad X140E which already has excellent battery life, but this may have added as much as another hour onto it. The speed-up was not as great as it would be in a Desktop (hence no benchmarking) due to the low-power CPU, but there is a definite difference.

4 out of 5 eggsADATA Premier Pro SP900 256GB SSD

This review is from: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ASP900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast! Even faster in RAID 0!

According to my testing, it performs similarly to the advertised speeds.

Cons: The 3.5" to 2.5" drive bay adapter is poorly designed. The brass inserts (that the screws screw into, to hold it in a 3.5" bay) are press fit (if you can call it that, when you can insert them with your fingers) in from the OUTSIDE, so trying to screw it into the bay pulls the inserts out instead. Don't count on being able to use the adapter. I bought two of these SSDs, and both the drive bay adapters are equally junk.

Other Thoughts: These are my first SSDs, and overall I am very impressed. So far, the only downside is the poorly designed drive bay adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsADATA Premier Pro SP900

This review is from: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ASP900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price and performance better than expected. This was my first ADATA purchase and my third SSD purchase. So I am still testing the waters on both price and performance. The prices have dropped enough at this point to justify the purchase. So far all 3 SSD are working as advertised with no issues to report. However, I will have to see if they live up to their claims for lifespan.

Cons: None at this point.

Other Thoughts: Works as promised and I use it daily and have found my applications and OS load much faster. There have been no issues with the ADATA brand so I cannot comment on their support at this time.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome SSD

This review is from: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ASP900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great read/write times under ide installation but that was the default in my mobo bios. Once Win7 x64 was installed I ran crystal disk mark and had decent read/write times, i then changed my registry so I could switch to AHCI mode in the bios without having to reinstall windows. I then ran crytal disk mark again and had over a 75% increase in read write times. this drive is super fast scores a 7.9 in windows exp index for those who mind this rating. very happy with this drive. will be buying another real soon! And make sure you install windows with AHCI as your bios setting on your mobo!

Cons: none that I could think o

Other Thoughts: I had tried updating the firmware to 5.25 while I was in ide mode in the bios and it would repeatedly fail the update, so after switching to AHCI mode in the bios I was able to update to 5.25 firmware. I also had to contact support since the signature file for my drive was not included in the firmware download from the website. they have since then corrected the download and support had replied back to me in less than 8 hours. so by far the best support I have had to ever deal with for any component. love ADATA!

This review is from: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ASP900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: High speed, low profile, Adata is a great company & backs thier products. I have purchased many Adata products in the past and all have stood the test of time. They do not exagerate the products preformance values. Came with bezel to make it full height.

Cons: Zero, Ziltch, Zip, Nada

1 out of 5 eggsUnfriendly product

This review is from: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ASP900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: None

Cons: I bought this product to use on a laptop and replace a HD. It came with no cloning software and had cloning software on line. It was impossible to download and customer support was not available. I would never buy this product to replace a drive again. I order to get the software you had to enter a 16 digit code on the back of the drive. Which sent you a 64 digit code in order to unlock the software which did not work. You would think this cloning software was a national secret. Crazy. It was totally worthless for me to use as need. Why would I want something that I had to download a software that took hours and was not able to do reasonably. Why would you make something like this so hard to use. Unless you are a rocket scientist do not buy.

Other Thoughts: What a shame I am sure it might be a good drive if they made it useable without so much effort.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Drive

This review is from: ADATA Premier Pro SP900 ASP900S3-256GM-C 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Affordable, Fast, Reliable... They even include a download of Acronis True Image Home for migration.

Cons: None so far...

Other Thoughts: I have bought a few of these now for boot drives and laptop upgrades. While not the biggest SSD on the market its definitely a great drive for the money. Speeds up even older systems by eliminating the HDD lag.
