Took a chance

Summary: I took a chance on ADATA and I guess it just wasn't meant to be. I would have loved for it to keep working but it didn't. I ordered a name brand I trust that hasn't failed me yet and it starts with a K.
Pros: super duper fantastically fast, responsive, quick and all other adjectives for oh my gosh fast.
Cons: Failed after 2 days, couldn't format, and went like super slow.
Summary: Very fast but having issues installing Windows 8.1 in AHCI mode, installer can't create/modify partitions (error 0x80300002 ). Installs w/o issue in ide mode. Was able to install win7 running in AHCI mode with no issues as well. Lenovo y510p Will update if I can find a fix
Summary: Was not really impressed by speed increase. I replaced a 7200 RPM 500Gb HD with this and I would say the speed increase is subjectively 10% to 15%. Not at all dramatic, and barely significant. I'm not sure I would recommend this for replacing a 7200 RPM drive.
Pros: Easy install, slightly faster boot time
Cons: Not siginificantly faster, bundled software not really worth the extra $20 or so.
Summary: I used this drive as my Operating system drive in my first PC build. That was 2 months ago. The drive died about 3 days ago. Pros: When it did work, it was fast and it worked well. Cons: Their customer service is on another level of absolute idiocy. Hold your horses, let me explain why it's so bad.
Summary: Its faster than my HDD but only in smaller operations where seek time holds the HDD back, its only SLIGHTLY 10MB/s Faster than my HDD in sequential read/write. Get this if you want an SSD so you can tell your friends you have one, Don't get it if you want SSD performance.
Pros: This is a great, cheap little SSD, its faster than a HDD in some areas but sequential read/write is definitely not it.
Cons: Claims to go up to 530MB/s Sequential Write, it manages about 140MB/s Claims to do up to 90k IOPS writing does 17k. Claims to do up to 40k IOPS reading does 5.6k
Summary: I have ordered this SSD via Amazon. The device was a faulty one which failed in a week's time and my BIOS could not detect it at all. Thanks to Amazon's customer service, I have a new replacement sent to me within a week (this is a first grade customer service compare to other online sites) and I...
Summary: I am not new to SSD's. I have a Crucial M4 in my other PC build and it outperforms this one. The M4 claims to have a sequential write speen of 175mb/s and when I ran a benchmark I got 169mb/s...pretty close. This one claimed to have a write speed of "up to" 505 mb/s and I thought, "wow..
Summary: If there is a new firmware revision for my drive i'd have gladly given five stars, without it it does not meet the specs put out by the manufacturer. pretty bummed.
Pros: Cheap, Kinda fast (will elaborate on cons), small, low power requirements, no moving parts.
Cons: Doesn't work at advertised speeds. speed on this drive is very hit or miss, the SSD is supposed to x-fer about 550MB/sec max and i'm lucky to get 350. I thought the culprit may be the firmware so I went to update to latest version that got good reviews and my SSD's ID number isn't one that allows...
