Fast nvme drive, gets the job done 9/16/2020 7:04:13 PM

Pros: RGB
Got it on sale
3500mbps read 3000mbps write

Cons: None

Overall Review: I would recommend this nvme drive, ssd and nvme prices are dropping considerably vs 1 or 2 years ago. There's no reason to be buying harddrives unless you have an older motherboard or need cheap, raw storage and nothing else. Temps on this nvme drive are actually better than the other one that I have the motherboard heatsink attached to. So maybe ppl complaining about temps are stressing the drive a bit too much or lost out on the silicon lottery? idk. Anyway, this is basically an adata sx8100 with rgb. read/write is identical so it really only comes down to which of the two are cheaper to make a decision. Or if you don't like lights on your storage devices which is understandable...

Great NVMe drive 8/15/2020 3:47:47 PM

Pros: -Working perfectly, no complaints

Cons: -Runs a little warm compared to my other drives

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this drive, it runs a little warm but has not been an issue at all thus far. I have a Phantecks Evolve case I only have the 3 front intake fans for fresh air, this is right above my PSU and below my GPU (water cooled) so it does not get much airflow.

Easy to install. LEDs make it a little wide. 5/22/2020 5:49:43 PM

Pros: - Again, It's easy to install if you have the proper space on your motherboard.
- The adjustable LED's are cool.
- You are able to have several saved personal presets saved for the LEDs.

Cons: - The LED's need a program downloaded from the XPG site in order to adjust the LED colors to your liking.
- The LEDs come preset to have the rainbow effect and every time you turn your PC on for the first time that day, you must run the program in order for your last preset to change the LED colors.
- Due to the LEDs protruding out from the side of this drive, you need to make sure it will fit under any heatsinks or next to any other obstacles it may have.

Overall Review: I do recommend this M.2 drive, because it adds some extra light effect to your PC build.
And it's 2TB...

Buyer Beware.. Bad design 5/14/2020 12:10:07 PM

Pros: -Gives you the full min formatted capacity of 953 GB.
-RGB light look cool, even if you can't do much to them. They are bright for sure
-fast.. will deliver easily over 2000GB on write.. on first pass 55GB initial run.. then slow down to sata speed beyond that.

Cons: -Product is being pushed beyond its capability...
-Poorly engineered thermal design.
Heat .. this product is poorly engineered from thermal design. It has heat sink but the product gets to 70 degree Celsius at idle. Start copying some data and this thing will easily go past 95 degree Celsius before literally dying.. meaning drive will not longer function. You will need to wait for it reach normal temperate before windows will see it again.. if a circuit isn't already dead from the high heat...

Overall Review: Dead drive in 10 min flat.
Steps to dead drive.
1. Installed the drive second m.2 slot on gaming laptop
2. Started to copy games folder from another m.2 drive in the same laptop (185GB steam games folder on second drive)
3. Middle of copy job, the operation stops.. reason is drive is not responding..
4. The RGB light have stopped. A quick touch on heat sink, almost burns my hand. check with temperature gun and it sitting at 96 degree Celsius
5. Shutdown and wait for it cool down. Reboot the PC, it comes back but again any large copy operations kills the drive.
6. check online, looks like I am not the only who has experienced this behavior.
7. Check the idle temperature on this drive and my temperature gun shows it is sitting at 70 degree celius when idle.

Conclusion: Buyer beware.. The light maybe cool, but this is product has poor designed thermal setup which should have never been released to market by Adata. I guessing the business manager likely overrode the engineering telling him we need to reduce the thermal on this thing.

End result. I have now sitting on useless product and will have to wait another 5 days for different SSD, and ofcourse all the effort to return this unit. My trust in Adata produts is officially dead after I had positive experience with their SX8200 Pro. Unlikely I am going ever recommend Adata based on this flawed product.
