Summary: My company bought me this solid state model (S599) with 256GB. It has been just over a year and the drive died on me. Worked fine, shutdown my laptop before lunch, came back and nothing. Tried using an external enclosure to access the drive on another machine and nothing. Drive is complete screwed. However, I'd been having problems with my computer ever since this drive was installed. At least once a week I was having a system lock-up and blue screen.
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.
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.
Worked great for a week. Not working after two weeks.

Summary: I was using this strictly as a drive to run games that had long load times (e.g. Crysis 2). I had it plugged into an Intel ICH10R sata2 port on a ex58-ud5r motherboard. After the second week of use, I noticed an error message during bios bootup about it not responding to start commands. Since the disk still worked, I didn't think much of it since the drive worked in Windows 7. I assumed it was something to do with it being a ssd, and that I just never noticed it before.
false advertisement, not 64GB, BSOD on all SandForce SSD, no firmware fix, many people have this problems, go search google

Summary: This drive advertise as 64GB, after format, only 55GB space, my 64GB crucial realssd c300 after format is 60GB, same capacity but less storage on this drive after format, I guess it's really a 60GB drive, not 64GB. Please note that this problem happens with all SandForce SSD drives, not just drives from ADATA, but from all SandForce Manufacturers, SandForce knows this problem but there's currently no fix to it.
Summary: I ordered this product. I then received 2 emails. first email stated that the products had been sent. Second email instructed me that the product had been incorrectly priced and had therefore been withdrawn from sale. Despite waiting over 2 weeks the product wasn't sent. Amazon "claim" it was sent but I have not received it. Amazon stated that the product was listed at £100 below actual price. This is probably why I didn't receive my order; it was never sent.
