Summary: I should have tested speeds way back when I upgraded to a SATA 3 equipped motherboard. That, and their RMA email states "Should problem persists, we request customers to return product(s) to our location for further testing. We will be happy to repair or replace your unit if it deemed faulty.
Pros: Little did I know my drive wasn't running at SATA 3 speeds, but SATA 2. ALL troubleshooting steps performed. 3 Years Warranty. That's good. But...
Cons: For a RMA I need to sent it to ADATA. It's pretty much standard these days if someone has one SSD they're using it as their system drive. Not having this SSD pretty much means not having a computer. That, and who knows how long they'll poke at it until I get something back.
Summary: Started failing around 10 months, died at 12. Was the OS disk for a NVR, so it didn't have a heavy load. ADATA replaced it without any hassle (if you don't consider their RMA process a hassle). May just be luck of the draw, but this is my first SSD and ADATA purchase.
Summary: The disk is incompatible with older version of M.2 standard, because of DEVSLP and there is no warning about it. It disappeared after boot on my Lenovo y510p. I complained to ADATA, but I got a replacement instead of my money back, now I have to sell it myself.
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.
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...
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 n...
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.
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 m...
