Summary: Purchased two of them four years ago (for roughly the same price as they are sold today). Worked great for four years, although I would get occasional "Blue Screen of Death", which seemed to be related to those drives. Used in a Raid0 configuration as my boot drive, the performance was outstanding.
Summary: Gave me 5 good years and then crapped the bed yesterday. Controller apparently died as it no longer shows upas a drive with any interface . Sort of painful since it was the OS. The 1T drive sitting next to it is still kicking along and it got most of the work.
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.
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.
Trials and Tribulations of an SSD installation, (or if I only knew then what I know now)!

Summary: Well this has surely been an experience. I bought this little guy to go into my "HP netbook", (mainly for it's supposed reduced power consumption and ruggedness - no plates to have to worry about being jostled- and admittedly, the supposed speed increase intrigued me as well).
