It never worked. Not once.

Summary: Open anything you buy the second it arrives and put it through forty seven tests. Then do it again. If it still works, it was meant to be yours.
Pros: Since I got a BAD product, I can not give it any "PRO's."
Cons: I had this drive in it's package, in a temp controlled home, in a dry place for over six months. It didn't move at all. I unwrapped it to put in a new machine. No go. Changed SATA cables. No. Power? No. Let's try a different machine. Hook it up here and here and.... no. Unwrap some new SATA cable...
5-egg-satisfaction at first but the device abruptly stopped working.

Summary: The SSD is heavy for a solid state drive. It is cased in a metallic 2.5" casing, which I suspect to have been the major factor in the product's relatively heavy weight.
Pros: I/O Speed, sleek design, price, and performance during proper function. Prior to the malfunction, the product worked satisfactorily.
Cons: Product became defective/nonrecognizable after a couple of years of non-extensive use. I am somewhat glad the product defect became apparent while my product was still within its limited warranty period. I will be contacting the manufacturer to get a replacement or a repair.
Summary: I wish I could go back in time and test this the day I got it.. I figured new in the box would be just fine as long as I kept it dry and in a temperate room. It never worked and I didn't open it until months after I got it. So I get no room for exchange or refund. Sucks for me.
Pros: I can't give this unit any pros. I suppose it arrived on time.
Cons: I made two mistakes. One- not paying for buyer protection. Two, not immediately opening this SSD and at least testing it. I kept it in the box for months as I was compiling parts for a new build and did not try it until months after the purchase. Subsequently, it was DOA and I didn't even know it...
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.
Dont waste your Money (time,frustration, and heartbeats) on this unit

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.
