Pros: decent speeds while it lasted using Linux Tangaloo

Overall Review: Toshiba laptop L305 series

other stuff but that's the main
win 8.1 pro 64bit
Pros: Comes with 3.5" drive bay adapter made of a sturdy plastic.
SSD is very fast, see other thoughts.
Cons: Does not come with SATA III cable, but most hard drives don't.
Adapter is blue... not really that much of an issue. It just looks strange with a black SSD.
Overall Review: I bought this to fix up an older computer with SATA II 3.0 Gbps bandwidth WITHOUT AHCI support, and installed Ubuntu on it. The computer is booted and ready to use within 10-15 seconds after pushing the power button, even without running at full speed. If this were installed in a more modern computer with SATA III 6.0 Gbps bandwidth and AHCI support, I can only imagine it would blow me away more than it already has.
Pros: Buying my fourth unit. Someone got 3 that they say are bad. Are you sure you know what your doing. Do you turn off auto defrag. Sorry, just had to ask. I am buying my fourth Adata and have yet to have a problem. My first unit is almost a year old and it turned an old computer into the fastest thing ever.
Overall Review: Comes with a 3.5 bracket. Awesome.
Pros: The ADATA SSD is unbelievably fast- especially for the price. I used Macrium Reflect to clone my 90 Gigs of used HD space from my WD Blue Caviar 500G HD to the SSD. It worked like a charm. It took about an hour and a half to clone everything- OS, programs- everything. I was then able to simply run setup and switch the boot up priorities. Now, I have my primary running on SSD and it is almost instantaneous. Pages switch quickly and streaming is seamless. I do recommend the Macrium Reflect software for cloning. I know they advertise the Acronis download, but I find the process convoluted and not at all user- friendly. To be fair, the customer service people were responsive and tried to help, but I got frustrated and found Macrium Reflect. It was clean, logical, and a truly free download. http://www.macrium.com/.
Cons: First one was DOA. Newegg was responsive and got me a replacement quickly; it is always a bummer to have to pay shipping when someone sends you a defective part, however. That is the only reason for taking an egg. The drive is super so far.
Overall Review: I have only kind words for the service people at Newegg and ADATA. They really did try to make things right. It is just a shame that quality control let us down this time.
Pros: Good for boot drive use.
Cons: On one of the bottom screw holes used for mounting, there is a "Warranty Void If Broken" sticker. I only used the other three screw holes, and that of course works just fine.
Overall Review: I definitely decided to deduct an egg for that, just because that's a pretty 'low' thing to do.
Pros: Was fast while it worked. First try at a SSD, was awesome at first fast boost to boot times and app launches. Slightly less read and write time then advertised.But still good.
Cons: Failed after about two weeks of use. Fresh install of Windows 7 lost with all recent data. Windows and bios would not see anymore than 30GB after it failed.
Overall Review: For my first foray into the world of SSD's this sucked. While it worked it was fast and I loved it. Not gonna recommend or buy from ADATA in the future.
I have RMA'd the drive and hope that when I get the replacement it works.
Pros: boots my system and programs in no time very fast works great so far i recomend
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: i also have a seagate 2tb hybrid sshd for my game drive the combo of both together is bad to the bone
