3x the price, much less storage, and short life... Not impressed!

Anonymous, Newegg
20 February 2016
  • Pros: Was quick for only being Sata 3gb/s. Installed easy. Affordable compared to comparable brands.
  • Cons: When it died no data was recoverable; at least standard drives give you a warning and data is recoverable. Luckily I regularly backup. Didn't even last 5 years, in my experience most disk drives last longer than that. Considerably more expensive, therefore smaller size than I really wanted, and n...

It Died

Rudy A., Newegg
26 January 2014
  • Summary: I have very good things to say about SSD's, however I'm sticking with Mechanical Drives until a better manufacturer releases a Larger Capacity SSD at affordable prices, and no 300 for an SSD is not affordable for the masses.
  • Pros: Very Fast, taught me the wonders of SSD's
  • Cons: Firmware Upgrades are a joke, process seems simple enough but nothing really happens. It Died, loading new Operating System on it, then it died. BIOS will not pick it up, tried it on another computer.....yep its dead.

bad luck

Nick P., Newegg
13 October 2013
  • Pros: low price
  • Cons: Had it for little over a year. When alive it was working good. The first time it died after six months and it was replaced under warranty. The second time died after 3 months and also replaced under warranty. I did not want to wait third time and sold the replacement on e-bay. Will not buy again ...

Junk Drive

d d., Newegg
14 July 2012
  • Summary: Will never, ever buy a product from A-Data again.
  • Pros: Absolutely None.
  • Cons: This is the second time that I have reviewed this drive as I had returned it previously. The second drive is just as much a piece of junk as the first one. They only lasted about a week or less. Only option is a replacement since I cannot get a refund (who knows why this is). Don't really want a ...

User Review

d d., Newegg
10 July 2012
  • Summary: Thankfully Newegg was quick to provide and RMA. Will see what happens when the replacement drive comes in. Newegg still rocks on their deals and customer service.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: This drive only lasted about 2 weeks before it quit working. The drive just stopped working one day while booting up my computer. The drive was no longer recognized by the BIOS, even. I had even updated the firmware to the latest version.

BSOD's weekly

Christopher V., Newegg
22 June 2012
  • Summary: If I can get it to 3.3.2 and stop the BSOD's I will remove this review in favor of a 4 egg review. It is a good SSD when it is working. Just more of a hassle than it is worth at the moment.
  • Pros: Fast. Well priced. I've owned it since 10/16/2011.
  • Cons: I get the BSOD problem as described by many. It happens at random intervals (mostly during idle periods of streaming media to another machine in my house). Contacted ADATA support and they recommended moving the firmware up to the 3.3.2 version. Ironically when I try to use their tool on their si...

Stephen S., Newegg
25 April 2012
  • Pros: Nice metal finish.
  • Cons: Not even close to the advertised speeds. CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 (the same ver I've seen in reviews with much higher results) gives me - Sequential Read 207.2 MB/s, Sequential Write 150.2 MB/s, 512k Read 199.5 MB/s, 512k Write 152.8 MB/s, 4k Read 24.70 MB/s, 4k Write 67.04 MB/s, 4k QD32 85.69 MB/s,...
