User Review

Brett_S, NCIX.com
8 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this drive as my primary OS drive after seeing it on sale and it had some decent reviews. With minimal PC building knowledge, I didn't really know what was causing my blue screens. I thought it was something I had installed wrong, didn't put enough thermal paste on the CPU, whatever. I finally rebuilt the exact same system but used my Patriot Pyro SE as the primary drive and haven't had a single hiccup. It's also 4x as fast to boot.
  • Pros: nothing really
  • Cons: blue screens galore, slower than other SSDs

Lack of Support is disappointing

HItech, Amazon
13 March 2014
  • Summary: Having purchased a 256 version of this drive I was very happy with performance and decided to pick up this 512GB version for my gaming needs. Was very suprised to have my windows 7 install start crashing after trying to partition. Not sure if it is something in this version or because I am running both drives in the same computer. I tried firmware update but it could not detect my drives (either of them).

3rd RMA - Works then fails in months

Myles F., Newegg
19 January 2014
  • Summary: Thought these are supposed to last 3 years, 9 drive and none lasted more than 18 months so far
  • Pros: Faster than mechanical hard drive
  • Cons: I have had 5 of these ADATA SSDs (and 4 OCZs): One ADATA was received DOA Another ADATA failed in 10 days, used in desktop PC Another ADATA failed in 8 months, used in laptop Two other ADATA drives are RAID1 now and not failed within 2 months so far These drives have a high failure rate and must be used in RAID configuration if you want to have any hope of recovering your data.

8 months till burn out!

Thomas F., Newegg
10 December 2013
  • Summary: These are very fast and cheap which adata is great for making fast cheap drives that fail after a few months. Pay a bit more with plextor and get a drive that lasts.
  • Pros: Very Fast, cheap and lasts for a few months!!! Firmware software is very easy to use and easy to install.
  • Cons: I'm a computer engineer in Wiscompton! I bought 7 of these for my family which after the 8 month mark, 5 of these adata drives failed. Complete data loss, no refund and game over. They are very fast and great if you bit coin mine via software, But 5 out of 7 have failed, that's terrible!

Dead in less than 30 days

James S., Newegg
19 October 2013
  • Summary: If it hadn't died so slowly, it wouldn't have been so bad. It would test good when I go there, so I would look for another cause. After three trips, it pukes, finally.
  • Pros: Crazy fast, when it was working.
  • Cons: Dead as a bag of hammers with a lengthy fail process that cost me about 1200 miles of driving. The machine I installed it on was for a relatives business in another state.

Good few months, but...

Marc M., Newegg
29 September 2013
  • Summary: I have ADATA a try because of price and reviews. The SSD functioned well for 7 months. After 7 months it began dismounting itself from the system and could not be remounted via the operating system; the drive had to be physically detached and reconnected to mount in the system. I tested this on different SATA ports and in another system with the same results.
  • Pros: - For 7 months, a fast secondary drive in my system. - Very good speed. - Easy to update firmware. - Good space to $ ratio. - Works very well with Win 7 and Linux
  • Cons: - After 7 months began to dismount itself after a few minutes. - The root directory could be seen, but not accessed. - Disk recovery tools could only get partial files back. - Updating the firmware did not change behavior for the better.

CAN'T FIRMWARE UPDATE

Derek H., Newegg
12 August 2013
  • Pros: Nice little box
  • Cons: I have emailed tech support back and forth... shipped with a buggy 5.02 firmware... no big deal right? The new and nice firmware 5.07a is available... tried MANY times trying to update the firmware. That means reverting windows back from 8 to 7... format of the drive many times... install/reinstall of the firmware... still is 5.02... contacted tech support many times. They are quick to give me a guide on how to update firmware. The program given is easy to use but it ...

Failed after 35 days - AWFUL RMA PROCESS

Douglas M., Newegg
12 June 2013
  • Summary: Drive is no longer detected by the BIOS of 3 test computers so I'm not "doing it wrong.
  • Pros: Very fast, no problems during install. Enjoyed while it lasted.
  • Cons: Died after 35 days so I can't return to NewEgg. ADATA's RMA process says to wait 2-3 weeks for replacement -- totally unacceptable for the primary boot device for any PC. I will purchase another brand drive for my customer (I'm a retailer too) and will be sure to avoid ADATA products for my customers in the future - drives or RAM.

Not satisfied

Steven T., Newegg
2 April 2013
  • Summary: Shortest drive lifespan Ive ever had, I only installed necessary programs on it and the rest on a Seagate Barracuda drive, You'd be better off spending slightly more money on something that lasts more than 5 months...
  • Pros: Fast, easy to install and pretty good price...
  • Cons: Failed after 5 months, was playing Dark soul and it just causes a system meltdown going to a BSoD. Cannot get it to reboot even on my friends computer, waste of 200 bucks.
