Worked for 2 years


It was good while it lasted. Once you get a SSD going back to a spinning disk drive is painful. I have an OS loaded on a conventional drive until I get a new SSD and it feels like going back to the 90s and using 56k. Could be that I got unlucky and...

Fast enough. Never ran a speed test, but I never experienced a slowdown (while it was working fine) due to the SSD ; Fairly priced among drives ; All the other benefits of having an SSD

Started to fail after 9-12 months of use. Had to reformat once, worked a little better, problems arose again ; 2 years in, its finally given up completely. Can't install a new OS on it ; Attempted to look for new drivers/firmware (maybe that could be...

Works but for how long?


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.

The drive is fast. I never had any issues with it while it was working

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...

Failed in less than a year


Companies really need to stop with this nonsense

Does exactly what you expect a SSD to do.. Fast

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

Buy one, and clone your old drive with Acronis true image. Then you will see for yourself!

Amazing Value, these drives rate the same as Samsung 840 or OCZ Vertex series, at half the cost. I have bought over 50 of these, and not one has failed, or had any issues ; I get a constant WEI of 7.9 in win7 and 8.7 on win8 ; The big brothers of this...

There are not free...The newer SandForce controler (SX910) has the same specs, and it's almost twice as expensive

It has a low power consumption

This drive is advertised to have up to 550MB/s read and 510MB/s write speeds, I did some testing and found that my max sequential reads are 355.4MB/s which you might say isn't too bad, but here's where I'm upset, my max sequential write speeds are...

Received shipment fast in in good condition Drive performs as expected. Have been using for 3 months now, no issues yet ; Acronis software works great for cloning OS disk but the ADATA supplied version does not support cloning to a Raid 1 volume. The...

ADATA SX900 Review


Replaced the 5400RPM HDD in my laptop and bought one for my desktop. Got them for $68 on sale and I still love the performance and it brought down the weight of my laptop.

Looks nice, very light, super fast, good price

Nothing. Perfect. Up there with Intel and Samsung

ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-256GM-C 2.5"


Stay awa from SSD's. So far, one Samsung and one ADATA 256 GB that broke down. after only a month. I am discustingly disappoionted.

Fast but unreliable

Went out cold after ONLY 32 DAYS. Weeks of work out in smoke. What do I do now

Consumer review by:

No failures


I love the fact that it comes with a mounting bracket for desktop computers. That and it's less expensive than other drives of comparable speed and size. What could be better?

Drives work very well. I have 6 of them in a server in a RAID 50 configuration and many other ADATA drives in other consumer systems and I have never had a single failure. As a matter of fact, I have had failures with several other drive manufacturers...
