Died after 2 years :(

yankeesixniner, Amazon

  • Summary: Ordered 2 of these on August 14, 2012 for a hackintosh project. One died today, so a bit above a 2 year life. Now it wont detect in the BIOS or with an external adapter. There goes my OS.

The Pits

William B., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Pros: Finally works fine
  • Cons: This has got to be the worst documentation and support there is. The migrate program would not open because it would not except the Key. Adata support when finally contacted, I was told there was no one to take my call. To get this SSD installed I had to purchase Paragon Migrate.

Disappointed

jonathan u., Newegg

  • Pros: It has a low power consumption.
  • Cons: This drive is advertised to have up to 550MB/s read and 510MB/s write speeds, I did some testing and found that my max sequential reads are 355.4MB/s which you might say isn't too bad, but here's where I'm upset, my max sequential write speeds are 73.07MB/s, that's not a typo, I get results that are 2x better on my 1TB 7200RPM Seagate drive, I also purchased a Samsung 840 EVO 500GB drive of which had MUCH MUCH closer results to their advertised speeds 522.2MB/s read 5...

Not Recommended

Ray W., Newegg
2 May 2014
  • Summary: After the first drive randomly disappeared from BIOS, I figured I was one of the unfortunate few to get a bad drive and requested a replacement. No Big Deal. Thanks to the second drive also refusing to be recognized, I've now lost 3 weeks of data (bills paid, emails downloaded, pics, etc) most of which can/must be recreated. Instead of enjoying my computer, I'm rebuilding lost data. I'm simply not willing to risk another crashed drive from this manufacturer.
  • Pros: Nice performance. Good Price
  • Cons: First one died after 3 days -> RMA RMA cost an additional $10 and took 3 weeks to get the replacement. Second one died after 3 weeks -> Refund

4 month lifespan

ManiacMagic, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • Summary: I know hard drives fail, guess I was un lucky this time. But as I've owned lots of WD and gotten life span out of them I dont complain too much. This was my first adata and it was out within 4 months. I also bought a corsair and OCZ around the same time, those two are running good. I'm going to try a samsung this time cause of the price ... I know my fav spinning drives, but still looking for my favorite ssds.

An SSD That Didn't Work for Me

cybermorse,, TigerDirect.com
16 March 2014
  • Summary: After migrating everything from the old HD to the ADATA SSD, the computer booted up with no problem. However, on the second day, this SSD would not boot, and no combination of new SATA cables or change in SATA output location on the MB made any difference. ADATA Tech Support finally suggested that unit be returned to seller.

Dead on Arrival

Benedict B., Newegg
3 March 2014
  • Pros: Excellent price (purchased on sale); I've had good success with AData SD cards
  • Cons: Dead on arrival. Returning to Newegg for replacement. Assuming that solves the problem, I'll update the review.

Not compatible with my Dell laptop

Bryant T. Michaud "Movie Lover", Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this ssd, hoping to replace the slowing Seagate OEM hdd that came with my Dell Studio XPS 1645. It installed physically fine in the laptop and even re-installed windows 7 and all the updates from Microsoft. But when I shut it down (rather than reboot), the laptop failed to recognize the presence of the OS.

Time will tell

Warren B., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: I have used Adata memory in several machines over several years with zero problems so I figured they would make a good SSD. Maybe not. See what the next unit does or it's off to a different brand. I have had no problems with SSD builds using Intel, Crucial and Plextor.
  • Pros: Looks great. Specs show lots of promise. Newegg shipped it fast and it arrived in a well protected undamaged package.
  • Cons: Defective drive. Cannot access it. Showed up briefly and started to clone - then poof - could not see it. Tried in 2 different computers and 2 different external devices. Both setups would see other drives but not this Adata SSD. RMA;d it.
