It works!


This served as my OS drive for a year and a half before I moved it to another box to serve as -that- box's OS drive. Management of space on the drive required a bit of doing, what with assorted user folders and documents, but it was plenty for my OS...

Good upgrade from a spinny-disk ; SATAIII, so you'll probably get all you can get out of it ; Good lifespan - so far

A bit small for an OS drive ; Not the fastest on the market

Fast lil booger


Time to watch Walking Dead :)

Fast! I tested out corsair's and Samsung and this would be equal in real world speed as the Corsair GT model and the Samsung Pro series BUT cheaper. Felt a bit faster than the Corsair GTX line but lil to no difference all great products

None so far. DOES IT's JOB Well

Firmware Issues


Just down right disappointed in this order and receiving 2 different revisions. I could see that if I ordered them at different times, but on the same order? Just my luck.

Nice specs

I ordered 2 256GB SSDs at the same time so I can set up a raid on my Windows 8.1. Wouldn't you know it, I get 2 completely different revision drives, with 2 totally different firmware (5.0.2 and 5.0.5) installed. And the icing on the cake is one drive...

Pay a little bit more and get a premium SSD. Trust me, it's worth it.

Newegg shipped it really fast

The drive had issues since I purchased it in July 2013. It was constantly blue screening after installation until it finally died 2 days ago. I lost all my data and will never buy an ADATA product again

I installed my OS on here (Literally took 10 minutes to get to the desktop) and I have a boot up time of about 12 seconds (to the desktop with everything loaded) after my motherboards boot screen. I am very happy with this purchase but I am kind of...

A great product! High transfer speeds and very quick

None so far it has treated me well

Solid medium capacity SSD


I have been using this drive for a while now in my main gaming rig as my boot drive. Performance has been very good and rivals my highly regarded Kingston Hyper X of similar capacity based on benchmarks and testing. Thus far it has been problem free...

Fast Boot and file transfers ; Fairly Inexpensive for SSD of capacity ; Competitive performance

Adata slow to address initial issues with TRIM and power consumption

Still Working


No hassle just works right out of the box

A bit expensive

So fast!


I am very new to the SSD installation. I did some reading and found that people suggested changing the BIOS to handle the SSD as ACHI rather than IDE, so I did that. Otherwise, I didn't make any changes. It took a while for me to figure out how to get...

I have been building computers for myself and friends since 1995. I'm always looking for ways to boost performance without too much cost. I upgrade CPUs, motherboards, RAM, etc as things slow down. I also will wipe and re-install the OS from time to...

Can't think of a single thing

Consumer review by:



Used acronis software to copy old 5400 rpm 180gig drive to the new drive with no problems. Boot time went from 2 minutes to 30 seconds or less. This is used on a sata 2 port and it saturates the speed read and write. Could not be more happy. I am...

I can't see any negative other than it didn't come with a sata cable. I had many lying around tho, but maybe others won't. After partitioning and formatting its 240 gig as expected
