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. when I did a nondestructive reinstall my video drivers were corrupted. I ended up buying a new video card to get back in operation. be very careful with the migration software ! ! !
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. Fortunately, I used this one for just the OS and kept my data on a HDD. I hope I have better luck next time. SSDs offer a big improvement over spinning disks.
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.
Pros: I can't even get windows to install on it. I have my settings set to ahci mode and it keeps giving me the same error over and over again. I am about to return it before I blow my brains out. It doesn't even deserve an egg. I will never buy from adata again.
Summary: Bought tge 256gb ssd. Unit was defective or was incompatible with ahci mode on Lenovo y510p. Worked with ahci mode disabled but wouldnt format when enabled. Running ide mode on an ssd defeats the purpose.
