ADATA S599 128GB SSD Review

23 February 2011
  • Summary: At nearly 10 times the price of a normal HDD, the ADATA S599 SSD is surely for early adopters. The performance benefits of SSD technology are currently more in access and seek times than in actual speed. However the ADATA S599 is lighter, noiseless and low-power consuming as well.
  • Pros: Very fast seek times, Very light weight, Low power consumption, and running temperature, Supports wear-leveling and TRIM
  • Cons: Expensive

A-DATA S599 128 GB SSD

22 December 2010
  • Summary: At the moment A-DATA's S599 128 GB is the cheapest 128 GB Sandforce SSD available on the market. It uses 8 GB of overprovisioning, whereas many other drives use 16 GB. Our testing shows that this does not have any negative effect on performance at all, actually the A-DATA S599 is the fastest Sandforce based SSD we had in our labs so far.
  • Pros: Low price, Higher performance than other Sandforce drives, Excellent synthetic performance, Supports TRIM, 3 Year warranty, Nice looking, rugged metal case, Includes 2.5 inch bracket
  • Cons: 128 GB label might be misleading, actual capacity 120 GB, 111.79 GB usable., Real-life performance not as impressive as synthetic

  • Excerpt: The original A-DATA S599 was the second SandForce SSD we tested, but that was all the way back in March. Quite a lot has changed since then with all of the SandForce partners; the products are now more refined and the competition of a saturated market has led to more value added accessories being included.

  • Excerpt: We managed to get the first review of a SandForce SF-1200 product out before anyone else when the Corsair Force F100 went up just last week. At the time we were planning on the A-DATA S599 arriving before the Corsair drive which came in unannounced and was a great surprise. Two days later the S599 arrived and at the same time Intel let us know that a new driver was on the way that would support RAID TRIM and bring new optimized performance for many SATA products.

  • Excerpt: The benefits of solid-state storage are plain to see, but even at today’s price levels, it’s not the cheapest way to hold data on your PC.

  • Conclusion: , poprzednikiem najlepszego dzisiaj SF-2281. Ubiegłoroczny kontroler pasuje do interfejsu SATA II. I do posiadaczy starszej wersji interfejsu SATA na płytach głownych kierowana jest ta seria. Składa się aż z siedmiu dysków o pojemności 40, 55, 64, 100, 115, 128 i 256 GB.

  • Pros: niska cena, spora rezerwa komórek
