Summary: Can ADATA make a good quality product? Absolutely can, if they decided to use the money they receive from consumers and invest it into the products they make. When a product dies after less than two months of web browsing use, there's a huge problem. Needless to say, I'm sorely disappointed with ADATA.
Pros: Well when I first got it, it worked flawlessly. It was quick, reliable, never failed, and overall a great product. This shows me that ADATA can make good products. I was impressed needless to say that it worked great and quick right out of the box no problems. I gave it two eggs because while the time it functioned, it worked like a champ.
Cons: 3/28/2013 to 5/22/2013 is the essential "optimal" lifespan of ADATA's manufacturing skills. When an object with no moving parts, that is on for 3 hours a day, starts to lose efficiency(this is after doing a clean install and defragging it), it is time to move onto a different brand. This is why no one literally buys these off brand ssd's. The quality is just not there. Can you buy this brand and have a good quality product? Sure! Are you taking a significantly bigger ...
Summary: Support for the RMA process was smooth and painless. I received the new drive back with a new 3.5in adapter. Now as i write this review , seems i will have to RMA it again after 1yr of use because its been faulty. I wont put it back into my server and will buy another SSD (not Adata) and keep this as a spare.
Pros: Runs fast, Good price
Cons: Had to RMA after 3 months, Had to RMA again after 1yr
Summary: If you're like me and figured you'd take a shot at saving some $$$, just make sure you do regular bootable backups; these drives are a gamble. Also, Arch Linux FTW.
Pros: My first solid state drive; was everything I had expected and worked great.
Cons: After about 3 months of what I would consider normal use, the drive suddenly failed. I had done my research prior to the purchase and took steps to limit reads/writes and enabling TRIM. I am aware that these drives do not have a good track record, and that it would either die within the first 6 months or live a long happy life.
Cons: I updated for larger capacity from a different SSD. My PC sees most drives as SCSI and has an on-board RAID controller (disabled for this drive.) Their ADATA software refuses to see their drive in this configuration which means no firmware updates and no tweaks. Two other SSDs have been through this machine without this issue. I'm probably going to do some creative drive swapping to get the capacity I need in this machine (with someone else's SSD that plays nice) and ...
