FAST -- 1 - 2 min on - Dead

Jon-Ari S., Newegg
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Newer purchase ADATA SSD again.
  • Pros: Worked for a while
  • Cons: Installed in a computer that was started for one day each month. Worked fine for a year. Then we where lucky to get the drive to work for 1 to 2 minutes and then freeze. Now it is dead, with less than 100 hours on it.

  • Pros: Worked for a while being slow.
  • Cons: Caused problems with windows system files within the first few months and then would only work for only 10 minutes each time you boot into the computer.

  • Summary: Source: Professional that specializes in hardware with 10 years experience
  • Pros: Was one of the cheaper drives at the time
  • Cons: 3.5" Drive adapter is offset incorrectly, so it doesn't fit. Drive died, slowly creating I/O errors, verifiable on 4 computers with Linux and Windows, sent it in, they said they ran checkdisk and updated the firmware fine and sent it back, drive worked for about 4 hours before more I/O errors, no...

Update - Fail

Christopher W., Newegg
20 April 2013
  • Summary: When I first bought this drive there were plenty of blue screens to go around. Apparently this had to do with firmware which other manufacturers at the time were providing fixes for that DIDN'T require sending the drive in but ADATA insisted that it was something with the hardware and it needed to...
  • Pros: Faster than a mechanical hard drive
  • Cons: Blue screens, blue screens, FAIL

steven m., Newegg

  • Summary: I went and bought 120gb Intel and a 256 corsair
  • Pros: came with a Bizlink connector so you could turn any SSD into a huge flash drive
  • Cons: it died within a year and its non-RMA or something because I can't seem to get a replacement.

5 July 2012
  • Pros: Worked for a short time failing and a long time without dying. The other one still works.
  • Cons: One of these drives failed on me as well. It started failing early on completely sporradically, about once every two months or so. Then this week it just died and did not want to come back up. Plugging from SATA port to SATA port has provided some activity, but only enough to maybe move some file...

Failed after 5 months

W G., Newegg
16 June 2012
  • Pros: Very fast, very quiet (when it worked). Boot-up time was significantly lower when I installed windows to this drive. Load times for games installed on the SSD were also very fast.
  • Cons: Completely crashed after 5 months. Become totally unresponsive and inaccessible. The adata website's RMA form is completely broken. I've submitted a request via the email address that the manufacturer has left as feedback to a number of other reviewers with failed Adata products. I'll say this: I...

ABRICK

Bevan G., Newegg
23 March 2012
  • Summary: This drive has repeatedly failed on me. It will now longer boot (yes I understand what AHCI is) ADATA Tech support has also repeatedly ignored my voice mail messages and emails. I really hope they dont put the CYA comment on this post. M4's are on model year clearance, get one of those instead.
  • Pros: Price Mounting Kit SataI speed
  • Cons: Sandforce ADATA CS

No RMA Response

Christopher D., Newegg
30 January 2012
  • Summary: I called the support # given in other posts here over 10 times, but nobody ever answers. I left messages every time and have not received any reply. ADATA is a JOKE. Buy something else!
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: Worked for several months, then just died...sometimes it shows up for a few seconds, but not long enough to read anything off drive. I know that it probably just needs a firmware update, but it's not possible to do when ADATA's own firmware upgrade tool won't see the drive. SHAME ON YOU ADATA for...
