Summary: Click the link on their "Customer Service Excellence Survey", and you'll get a 404 Error, Web Page Cannot be Found. Yup, par for the course. Another funny thing is that the serial number of the disk drive is on the box. The number etched into the side of the actual drive is not the serial number. Hmmm, I wonder what the meeting on that decision was like. Can you think of any other Disk Drive manufacturer that doesn't put a serial number on the actual Disk Drive.
Pros: These drives offer very, very good performance for the price. They've also gotten fairly good reviews from the likes of Maximum PC (if you don't subscribe, you should)
Cons: Their web site for warranty and customer support. Their RMA process. See comments below in Other Thoughts.
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.
Summary: Not really impressed with RAID performance but if they last, I'm satisfied.
Pros: Replaced a single Vertex 2 - 34nm with two of these in RAID 0 (1231ML card). All the benchmarks (HD Tune Pro & Atto) almost doubled. Strange thing, WEI went down from 7.7 to 7.6. I think the machine in general is a bit more snappy but not much more that the Vertex 2 but boot times were not improved, (15 seconds from Windows Logo).
Cons: Two of these in RAID 0 on the Intel X58 controller stunk... slower than a single Vertex 2 (AHCI).
Summary: Did not speed up internet time buy very much.
Pros: Speed's up boot time by half.Load's app's all most instantly. Will buy a larger one when price's drop.
Cons: Had to spend 2 hour's making the tweek's recommended on the internet. Could find no support from A-Data. At first it was no faster then my WD drive and did not really speed up untill all the tweek's were applied.
