Slow and failed all of a sudden
4 July 2015
Summary: The drive slowed down after 3 months of usage than today it is not visible in the BIOS. I have been using ssd for six years, I used Corsair, Samsung, Sandisk, and I have not encountered any failing disk so far but ADATA. I want my money back.

Summary: Worked great for about 4 months with no issues at all, 5-9 months every now and then computer would freeze, restart the computer and it was a 50/50 chance if the computer would recognize the m.2 device.
Cons: High failure rate. I have had this in my home theatre pc as the boot drive for almost 3 years. Just submitted my second RMA in that 3 year span for a dead drive. Each time the drive last a little over a year before it dies and either stops recognizing or throws CRC errors. Glad it was only used f...
Summary: Good price on the drive, too bad it died... will try the replacement drive, but if that fails will be requesting a refund and not buying AData SSD's any more (the Samsung 850 EVO m.2 looks good and only a little more...
Pros: Works with new i5 version of NUC (slim version) with M.2 drive connector.
Cons: After installing Win 8.1 pro and running all windows updates, and some simple application installs, Windows started reporting "SMART errors" with the AData SSD... After installing a tool to pull smart data, turns out multiple smart params were failing (reallocated block count & retired block coun...
Summary: Took this opportunity to upgrade to a bigger, better ssd with another brand for my boot drive. Didn't want to bother with RMA for this.
Pros: was fine initially
Cons: Drive died in about 11 months. No warning, SMART didn't recognize anything wrong with the drive. My linux partition disappeared suddenly and within 24 hours the drive deteriorated to the point that my mobo wasn't recognizing the drive.
Summary: Bough 5, Have to return to change to other brand Does ADATA aware of this issue and have a solution for it?
Pros: Slim, looks good
Cons: Can't use for booting disk, tried on many system and OS (Win 7. Wim 8.0 and Win 8.0), No disk will shows up when getting to the install, only qualify for storage device. Update to newest FW also does not help. Bought 5 at a time, have to return. In the same setting, Crucial SSD works perfectly
Summary: my computer would not recognize the drive. maybe because I am using win xp pro sp3. however the migration software that is used with it cannot be UNINSTALLED. tried add/remove it was not listed. so I used windows explorer to remove the folder, bad move, it wiped out my operating system.
Summary: Now, I guess I'll see what ADATA's warranty service is like. I've been building PCs since Win-95 and I'm not shocked that a storage device should fail once in awhile. But it's been awhile since the last time I had a catastrophic failure like this.
Pros: It was a cheap entry into using a SSD. The speed increase was noticeable compared to HDDs.
Cons: It died a few weeks short of 2 years after installation. I calculate that is about 982,480 hours short of the listed 1,000,000 hrs MTBF on the specs.
Cons: The drive died after 60 days. Tried contacting manufacturer for two weeks with no response. Left messages, emails. Not sure if ADATA is out of business or just non responsive. Products are only as good as the people that stand behind them. No more ADATA products for me.
