Good, fast SSD, but some of the chips were really tall.
15 June 2015
Summary: Worked great in the UX21e. The one issue I had with the SSD was that there were chips that were really tall on the SSD. It made me slightly uncomfortable putting it into an adapter and the cover on the UX21e.
Summary: I the use Rapid Cache on a Samsung mSata in my Lenovo T430 and like the benefit. For this drive I installed Romex PrimoCache and allowed 4 Gb of cache. My first time to try it, but it seems to be good.
Pros: Easy install in a Lenovo T540. I cloned my boot drive with the free version of EaseUS, changed the bios and was done. As a boot drive it feels about like the Samsung 830 256G. The 830 benchmarks are higher for everything except the 4K writes where the Adata is quicker. CrystalDisk benchmarks: Seq...
Cons: None. It's been a solid drive; consistent with no surprises. Stable temps at 41C. I would have liked mmore speed but that seems to be a consistent limitation of this small form factor.
Summary: I know how the specificities of a HDD/SDD work, but I didn’t expect to find only 230 Gigs of available space before the actual OS installation within the system viewer and BIOS; The reason I paid a little more for one that announced 256 Gigs instead of a less expensive 220-250 Gig; was because I...
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.
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.
