Confusing Benchmark Results : ATTO vs CrystalDiskMark
4 May 2014
Summary: Length:: 0:49 Mins HI ... on my Dell Optiplex 9020 SFF (i7-4770 3.4GHz) machine I have an ADATA XPG SX900 512 GB SATA III 6 GB/sec SandForce 2.5 Inch SSD (ASX900S3-512GM-C) installed as Drive C:. I cloned my original hard disk with Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit SP1 on to the SSD using Acronis TrueImage 2014. My read/write times (especially my write times) as measured by the 2 benchmark test shown below are somewhat confusing!!!
Summary: I put this in my 2011 MacBook Pro. Install was easy and it's super fast now. Only holding back one star because my battery life seems to suffer a bit. It tends to be a problem with many ssd's. Not enough of a problem to want be to go back to my old drive. Stock drive would get speeds from 50-80Mb/s. This Ssd gets 450-500mb/s. It's like a new machine.
Summary: Inexpensive for its size, but still a reliable solid state drive. Fast, consistent access with no problems so far. My only concern is that the SATA cable connector does not 'click' into place, allowing the connector to be pulled out without needing to depress the locking tabs. Still, it's not a loose fit and since I installed it in a tower, there is little chance of it being accidentally unplugged.
Summary: I received this SSD three days ago, and cloned my laptop drive, then removed it and installed the SSD without a single issue. The system booted up the fist time as if nothing had been changed. I wasn't looking to benchmark the new drive, but just making sure there were no problems, and there were none! So far, I'm very pleased with the performance, but if anyone from ADATA is seeing this review, please fix your terrible website!
Summary: It's been working pretty well and fast for me, haven't seen any issues yet. I'm planning to buy another one. Hopefully the price will go down a little bit. I really want to buy 1TB ones instead of 512gbs.
Summary: I purchased two of these during a sale in late December. I assumed the price may come back up because at the time they were 89.99$ on this date it still is priced that way. I purchased two so that I could put these as OS drives for two systems I built. One is a Hyper-V machine while the other is a Windows 8.1 gaming rig. No complaints. I had previously purchased an OCZ drive with roughly the same innards and I cannot complain about it or these.
Pros: Cheap Price.
Cons: May not be the SSD with the highest performance out there.
Summary: purchased it on 01/27/13, I'm using it for my macbook pro late 2011 because the mechanical hard drive drains my battery when idle. I used a software to clone my macbook pro hard drive and the swap was easy, this hard drive on a 5gb transfer using black magic give me around 550mb/s as advertised! Im kinda impress with this sad, my first and only so far. Hopefully i would buy more when it becomes cheaper and more affordable to students.
Pros: -Good SSD to begin with, -256GB is consider mid range for this price
Cons: doesn't come with usb cable for you to transfer your files over
Summary: Works faster than my smaller ocz ssd. I did have cloning problems from smaller ocz ssd to this ssd. Never had problems with hdd cloning or from hdd to ssd only from ssd to ssd so not sure if its a problem with ssd's or the programs.
Summary: I bought this months ago when it was much more expensive. The first one died within a week.. :( but was quickly and easily replaced and Ive had no issues in months! now with it being on sale for $159.99 im considering myself another one.
