Bad luck?

Paul C., Newegg
12 February 2015
  • Summary: This might just be a case of bad luck.., drives fail. This just seems to have failed very fast
  • Pros: SSD; quick boots, increased speed over platter HD's
  • Cons: Purchased April 2013 from Newegg. PC BSOD, Disk health is 45% with I/O errors. Shortest lifespan of any drive I have ever owned. I have platter based HD's still running at 100% health after 6+ years. I will NOT buy this brand again. Bought a Samsung replacement, will check warranty and see if I have any recourse.

Stopped working after 26 months

David E., Newegg
22 January 2015
  • Summary: Are SSDs supposed to die after 2 years? If so, are they really that much better?
  • Pros: Worked well while it lasted
  • Cons: Very unfortunate that the disk had to die on me right at the beginning of semester. Can't get a worse con than not working.

Works but for how long?

Tyler R., Newegg
19 October 2014
  • Summary: Honestly, I may have had a stroke of bad luck. But i think other manufacturers like Samsung may have a higher quality SSD that might not require 2 weeks of fix time every 9 - 12 months.
  • Pros: The drive is fast. I never had any issues with it while it was working.
  • Cons: The fault of this drive really comes from it's inability to work for an extended period of time. It was working for a year straight and then died and I had to warranty. ADATA fixed my drive and in a couple of weeks sent it back to me. It lasted another 8 months and all was going well until it just died again. I'm going to try and warranty again since it is 3 years warranty.

Failed in less than a year

Marina M., Newegg
9 October 2014
  • Summary: Companies really need to stop with this nonsense
  • Pros: Does exactly what you expect a SSD to do.. Fast
  • Cons: Failed after about 6 months of use. Blue screen of death galore even on fresh installation. The cause was apparently a built in expiration trigger that is designed to cause it to fail after 5 years.

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.
