Boosting performance without increasing cost further, SP550 speeds up everyday tasks such as web-surfing, email, social media, video streaming and gaming.

Great SSD 12/10/2019 7:24:08 AM

Pros: Bought this SSD over 4 years ago. Running two small PC and phone repair shops, I have done a lot of data recovery. Using a program called Hard Disk Sentinel, I was able to keep an eye on health and performance. I logged over 350TB of data written across this drive. Solid performer, and never let me down. Just yesterday the health dipped below 95% and the drive got sluggish. I was able to image the drive onto another and keep going.

Cons: It was expensive when I purchased it? But that was 4 years ago. Great bang for buck performance.

Overall Review: Backup your data! Live by the 3-2-1 rule. 3 backups, 1 external, 1 image, 1 cloud backup. I understand this is not feasible for your average consumer, but you HAVE to have a backup. If you don't, well....it's 2019 almost 2020 so no excuse really. Be smart with your data, and regardless of drive get a program that can monitor and log SMART data from SSD's/HDD's to help avoid data loss.

Great while they lasted 10/4/2019 1:59:58 PM

Pros: - Cheap price
- Fast enough as a gaming drive

Cons: - When these die, they die suddenly.

Overall Review: I bought these 3 years ago and they are the first SSDs to die on me. They died suddenly and without warning and it wasn't just a fluke because I had 2 of these in my rig with 4 other SSDs and both died at the same time. ADATA's SSD software never warned of any imminent issues. I have 2 other Samsung SSDs and both are 18 months older and so far no issues. Guess with SSDs you need to know that they may die faster than the old platter drives and without warning so back up everything.

Stopped working after just over a year 8/16/2019 9:46:12 AM

Pros: None. It stopped working.

Cons: Not reliable

Overall Review: The whole idea of swapping your traditional hard drive with an SSD besides the speed is the reliability.
Cleary ADATA does not subscribe to this notion, their SSD drive failed about a year into it.
They are not ready to compete with Samsung in the quality department.

Fast drives even without sandforce controller **Updated** 9/13/2018 4:53:09 PM

Pros: I have 3 of these in Raid 0 Config on my X79 board, using the 3g intel sata connectors, Seq read with 128k stripe size is 803.35 read, 740.73 write, this is with the array 65% full with my Steam Account. I will shortly be adding a 4th drive.

*Update*

I now have 4 of these drives in a raid 0 array, 16K strip size on a FTW-K X99 board. Using as my Game arrary for my Steam Library. Seq read=985 MB/s, Seq write=766MB/s. Great drives, no issues to date.

Cons: No Issues or bugs yet!

Overall Review: Definitely recommend this as a substitute for a cheap/effective storage/OS drive.

It Died after 2 Years light use 8/30/2018 12:40:59 AM

Pros: It was cheap
It worked fine up until it died

Cons: It died
Even though it died within warranty the process was a headache and I'm unsure if its worth doing. The online rma process failed twice and I had to register with adata just to complete it. Then i get a form saying i have to mail it to an address in California which after checking would cost around 30 dollars cheapest. Pay a little more and get buy from a quality company.
