I had an impossible time trying to get the SSD copy software to work.

Summary: I had an impossible time trying to get the SSD copy software to work. I had to go through an elaborate registration process and never actually got it activated to migrate the drive. I had to purchase online software for $50 in order to migrate the two drives I purchased from ADATA. They owe me an apology and $50 as far as I am concerned...... The drives so far are working well but then again it's only been a few days. I will report back in a couple of months.
Summary: Bought one of these with a new computer a while ago. It worked wonderfully, then died. I RMA'd back to ADATA (and they were very helpful) at the cost of $10 in shipping. They either fixed the drive or sent me a new one. Six months later the same thing happened. Same helpful customer service, same RMA procedure, same $10 shipping cost. Four months later the same thing happened again...
Summary: The drive is adequate and I can't complain about the price. But the migration software that came with it would not activate with the license they gave me after going through a pile of crap on their site to get the frigging license. So after contacting the actual vendor/manufacturer of the software they told me they don't support OEM supplied versions of their own software and would not help me activate it. So I went to ADATA.
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.
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.
Summary: Will return! ASUS mobo runs Marvell software and will NOT support SSD in 6.0 gbs SATA! Drive is stale with OLD drivers when it ships. Can't upgrade after installation. Acronis software is STALE version too. Did not correctly work 1st time. Most importantly, ADATA crashed and lost every thing. Win 7 repair disk failed too. ADATA send my password, after the crash, in an email that displayed the password. Real world companies send links to reset NOT the actual password.
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.
Summary: Well I had this for about 2 weeks before it died. I really only used it twice. Once to setup my OS and all programs and the second time I turned my laptop on to look something up it died. Tried putting it into a drive bay to see if I could get anything out of it, but its done. **Update Got a replacement drive, it lasted a month before the replacement died.
