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: Liked the one I bought for my road laptop so got one for my son's. The Acronis true image works very easily.

Cons: don't forget to write down the Acronis number before installing HD.

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

Pros: Great Price, Insane speed!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've had these for over a year now in a RAID 0 config. No problems what so ever. Windows 8.1 boots in 8 seconds! This is the best upgrade I've ever bought hands down.

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

Pros: Fast! I tested out corsair's and Samsung and this would be equal in real world speed as the Corsair GT model and the Samsung Pro series BUT cheaper. Felt a bit faster than the Corsair GTX line but lil to no difference all great products.

Cons: None so far. DOES IT's JOB Well.

Other Thoughts: Time to watch Walking Dead :)

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.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after a month

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

Pros: Had this drive in service for one month on a brand new build. Just long enough to get all my programs up and running. Now I have to go through the whole process again on another companies SSD Hard drive as ADATA has to have you test it, emailing for RMA (that takes three days of emails), and then expect 2-3 weeks to replace. Not the kind of service I want from a company with a brand new SSD Hard drive.

Cons: Died after 1 month, $money down the drain.
Not happy with the way Customer Service works.

Other Thoughts: On a AMD FX-8350 processor and ASUS 990FX motherboard.

2 out of 5 eggs3rd RMA - Works then fails in months

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

Pros: Faster than mechanical hard drive

Cons: I have had 5 of these ADATA SSDs (and 4 OCZs):

One ADATA was received DOA
Another ADATA failed in 10 days, used in desktop PC
Another ADATA failed in 8 months, used in laptop
Two other ADATA drives are RAID1 now and not failed within 2 months so far

These drives have a high failure rate and must be used in RAID configuration if you want to have any hope of recovering your data.

Other Thoughts: Thought these are supposed to last 3 years, 9 drive and none lasted more than 18 months so far

1 out of 5 eggsFirmware Issues

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

Pros: Nice specs

Cons: I ordered 2 256GB SSDs at the same time so I can set up a raid on my Windows 8.1. Wouldn't you know it, I get 2 completely different revision drives, with 2 totally different firmware (5.0.2 and 5.0.5) installed. And the icing on the cake is one drive is not even included in the firmware 5.0.7a update. So now I am unable to build the raid until I can update the firmware of the second drive. The cases are physically different (total number of screws are different, sizes are different, the brushed metal is even different) so I have a real mess on my hands. We'll see how responsive the ADATA tech support is in getting me the updated firmware.

Other Thoughts: Just down right disappointed in this order and receiving 2 different revisions. I could see that if I ordered them at different times, but on the same order? Just my luck.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you are having difficulties with our product.

We are in the process of verify the latest Firmware, it will be released on our web site soon.

Please feel free to contact us directly and one of our representatives will assist you.
