ADATA S511 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Speeds are as advertised

Cons: None at the moment

Other Thoughts: Update to my prior posting - I did contact ADATA and they were extremely fast and prompt in giving me an RMA, and even offered to exchange it for a different model of a higher capacity. I had some personal things in my life that prevented me from sending out my drive (it really was due to the sandforce controller), and customer support actually checked up on me to make sure I still wanted to send the product back. They also mentioned that they had firmware in testing, and offered me a link to try it out. I still didn't have a chance, but by the time I did, the public firmware came out - I downloaded that, patched my drive, and since then, I have not had any issues since.

So, I'm revising my review to reflect the product's performance and the excellent customer support ADATA gave. Thanks guys!

1 out of 5 eggs Sandforce controller issues = do not buy 08/10/2011

This review is from: ADATA S511 Series 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) AS511S3-60GM-C

Pros: Really fast. Win 7 boots and shuts down like a boss.

Cons: BSODs, OS stuttering/freezing/locking up. Based on research it has to do with the type of Sandforce controller (Sandforce 2281), which Sandforce is still trying to resolve (if you go to the sandforce website, it's on the front page)

Because of this alone, it's unfortunately a should not buy. I'm essentially unable to use the SSD at all. I have left a message with ADATA support today, so we'll see how that goes.

Fantom Drives G-Force II 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: None

Cons: Unit arrived dead on arrival. We sent it to our data center several states away to perform a restore from a backup we had at our dc. Our techs tried to get it to recognize on our four servers via USB, and it would not work. They also mentioned that the drive had some really odd rotational properties (such as if they put it on a turntable, it would probably rotate the turntable on its own). Very dissapointed and will now buy brand name drive/enclosures from now on. We do not have the luxury of returning the drive and replacing it.
