More reliable than the SP610

Summary: Overall this drive has been more reliable than SP610's I have out in the field. Two of those models have been RMA'd; one had corruption issues and the other "locked" after the user ran it low on space causing it to no longer detect. The S900's have been reliable and are actually a bit faster. A solid Sandforce drive. It's worth mentioning the RMA process for the SP610's was very fluid with a short turnaround. And the James L below with the SSD failure..
Pros: Inexpensive Sandforce drive with decent warranty
Cons: Possibly less reliable than other Sandforce drives from Intel?
Summary: This is a solid and relatively fast drive. There are faster SSDs on the market but for the price this one gets the job done. I have one in my personal gaming machine at home and one in the workstation I maintain for my work. If you can afford it get the biggest SSD you can afford. I would like 512 GB but the price to storage just wasn't there at the time.
Summary: I do not have my OS on the drive, just my user folders and a few games. This could be why it's a tad slow. Also If you don't enable ahci or can't use ahci don't bother with this drive. AHCI makes a big difference.
Pros: Low cost and comes with 3 1/2 drive caddy.
Cons: Slower then you would think. it's definitely better than a hdd. But it might leve you wanting more.
Pros: Adata finally got the newest firmware for our signature drives. All 10 drives are updated to 5.25 firmware and work much better. Adata pulled through, and i am now eating humble pie.
Cons: Wish the update process was iso based like OCZ, so it's os independent. Stinks having to do the update on an intel chipset with windows 7 32 bit because nothing else will do the update correctly.
Very good performance, but somewhat slow to install

Summary: Bought to replace the 80GB/7200RPM drive in my recently-bought Dell Latitude 630 laptop running Windows 7. I like the computer, but one never knows how much life is left in a hard disk in any used machine, so I planned to replace it. Indeed, wags divide hard drives into two categories: Those which have failed, and those which WILL fail. They are the most trouble-prone component in most home computers. After research, I decided this SSD was the one to use.
Summary: These are my first SSDs, and overall I am very impressed. So far, the only downside is the poorly designed drive bay adapter.
Pros: Fast! Even faster in RAID 0! According to my testing, it performs similarly to the advertised speeds.
Cons: The 3.5" to 2.5" drive bay adapter is poorly designed. The brass inserts (that the screws screw into, to hold it in a 3.5" bay) are press fit (if you can call it that, when you can insert them with your fingers) in from the OUTSIDE, so trying to screw it into the bay pulls the inserts out instead. Don't count on being able to use the adapter. I bought two of these SSDs, and both the drive bay adapters are equally junk.
Summary: We've only had the 128GB SSD installed for a few weeks. Our Laptop used to take 56 seconds to boot up and now it takes 13 seconds. I loaded an SSD disk monitor program and the drive appears to be logging lots of correctable errors which is a concern. Installation was simple as we just cloned our old one across.
