Stay Away

  • Summary: This drive was the second failed drive I received from the manufacture. They sent me an S510 drive as the third replacement and I love it ever since.

Worked great for about 3 weeks

scottd777, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this drive for a laptop, created a factory image on it, and had a great time using it for about 3 weeks. Unfortunately, at the end of 3 weeks, it simply died. No error messages, no nothing - just will not be recognized by the bios anymore. I tried it in another computer as a non-boot drive, and tried to run some diagnostics, but I literally couldn't do ANYTHING to bring this to any sort of life.

Excellent performance and price

  • Summary: I bought two of these and put it on my GA-X58A-UD3R v2.0, set it up on RAID0 and the speed is incredibly fast. My OS is Win7 x64. Very easy to set up. I got a 7.8 mark on the windows benchmark on the hdd item.

  • Summary: It's not the best SSD out there, but it does the job. It's fast and has a 20 sec boot time.

Do NOT buy this unit.

ckift, Amazon
22 June 2011
  • Summary: If this unit works for you good, but beware if you need to get any service from ADATA. They are extremely slow and their process is inadequate. Here's my story: I bought this unit to install in my Dell Laptop. Worked fine for two weeks then every time the laptop went to sleep it would crash the system on wake-up. Contacted ADATA for a RMA, took more than a week to get them to actually agree to a RMA.

Good SSD Drive with Issues

L. A. Mayhew, Amazon
29 April 2011
  • Summary: This is the first SSD drive I have used in a system. It boots Windows 7 (64-bit) in less than 15 seconds, which is longer than my system takes to pass through the BIOS. I had no trouble installing the drive and loading Windows 7. But I have had some issues with this drive. I started getting the Windows BSOD about once every 3 or 4 days, each time my system would not find the ADATA drive until I powered off the system and restarted the system.

Great little SSD

Heir, Amazon
18 April 2011
  • Summary: So far this SSD has done exactly what I've needed. The only issue is that I couldn't use 128GB of memory. I would like to purchase one with at least double the capacity, but this one does for now. I'd rather have enough info backed up in case of a failure, than none because I wanted it all.

The unsupported SSD drive

lou30088, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought this SSD drive because of [...] reviews. However, this SSD drive released a firmware update on 1/4/2011 that very few consumers can install. ADATA omitted a number of key settings that are required before an update can be done. After following those changes, the firmware update failed repeatedly. My cumputer would often freeze-up. After making repeated calls to ADATA about this problem, they wanted me to ship the drive to them.

Adata SSD Does the Trick

Greg Klabisch, Amazon
11 February 2011
  • Summary: The turnaround from the shipper was excellent. It met most of my expectations to use it as a boot drive on a desktop running W7. I have several external USB drives that are usually connected. When these drives are disconnected, it boots much faster (78 seconds vs. 133 seconds on the original hard drive). However, when they are connected the boot is slightly slower, but sometimes the shutdown is over 2 minutes vs. 17 seconds.

Impossible to upgrade and faulty

Vadym Kodryan, Amazon
1 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased my ADATA S599 drive in late October and had it running in my Windows 7 x64 system until yesterday. While it was operational I noticed faster transfer speeds and better Windows Experience Index for my system. I was happy with the drive's performance. Problems began when I tried to upgrade the drive to a newer firmware just released. The drive just wouldn't upgrade.
