ADATA S596 128GB JMicron JMF612 SSD Review


The ADATA S596 128GB SSD featuring a JMicron JMF612 controller has shown up on our doorstep for a test run. We've seen this controller before in other models and have a good idea what to expect but changes to the firmware could make a significant...

The ADATA S596 is a very capable SSD and one of the better performing JMicron drives we've tested. Having the flexibility of accessing data via the USB 2.0 interface gives it an edge over drives missing this feature.

VM booting


I hope to get at least 3 years of use out of this drive. I didn't need 64GB to host HyperV but I tried serveral other brands mostly 2 corsair and couldn't get them to boot in under 2 hours I think it's something to do with the cell controller.

So I needed a reiliable fast drive with a cell controller to use for hosting HyperV inside an hp ProLiant dl360 g5 server. I setup HyperV on this usb drive and plugged it in to the internal port has been running for over a month now without any...

So fare only used it for a month, I was hoping to find a drive that would be even smaller but can't complain since the price is right 120

This makes setting up all the storage of a server so simple and tuck this inside of an hp server on the internal usb port what a great setup!

Great I finally found a SSD drive that supports usb interface. I think these should be used for portability and speed. I don't get why people are using them for windows 7. I install Microsoft HyperV 2K8 R2 on them and virtualize entire servers not...

Not a Con really not sure how long they last backup the hyperv settings keep in workgroup mode or management domain if you can afford one and it doesn't matter if it fails its such an easy replacement. Wish they made this smaller

Superb performance. No problems


Very fast and reliable drive. I installed this drive over a year ago and it has been a dream, no problems what so ever. I hesitated before buying because of all the mixed reviews with SSD drives in general, but it was a good choice. Getting an SSD is...

Died after a year


replaced with Plextor M3 Series PX-128M3 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) while waiting on the RMA from Adata.

Worked fine when it was operational

died just a lil after a year, the sata port seems to have died. Could access the data Partially though the USB port, witch could nor delete files, partion or format. Although as it was meant to be a boot drive it was dead

It is pretty great for the price but...


While I love their mirco disks for my Nooktablet and phone. I am unsure if I want them as my OS drive again. Maybe it will do me better if it can cache my other storage drives.

It is fast. I am using this as my OS drive, couple work programs and BF3 and Skyrim. I love this SSD and Adata. The bracket is very nice color... to bad I can't use it in my setup. Everything runs at great speed. Great for a OS drive so I don't need to...

While I am going to buy a 125 or 250GB SSD. I make think twice about buying Adata. I have updated, re formatted, restored, changed the BIOS boot for this over 50 times, repaired windows with this drive only connected and changed windows to recognize...

somewhat unreliable.


Bought this specifically because it claimed to be readyboost ready. To my dismay it fails at being readyboost capable.

i bought this as a boot drive for a new build. it installed the OS, and it worked at great until

i went to take it to my room from the office and when i tried to boot, the drive had failed. i reinstalled the OS and its worked fine since

Worked great for almost a year!


When it works, it works great. But if you're planning to use it a lot, then don't expect it to last years, more like 1 year.

Great speeds, decent price

Died after less than a year, I can only assume that's due to a poor manufacturing process
