5 out of 5 eggsSolid State Drive Love

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP600 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP600S3-256GM-C

Pros: I bought one of these as my first SSD and loved it so much I bought 3 more to put into all my computers. Going from a spinning platter to a SSD drive was probably the biggest performance gain I have seen in a PC since i upgraded from a 386 to a 486 CPU. Boot times and programs load Sooooo much faster. If you still boot to a spinning platter drive, you really need to look at upgrading to a SSD.

Cons: It was not free.

Other Thoughts: Absolutely recommend to others.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and holding up well

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP600 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP600S3-256GM-C

Pros: - Inexpensive MLC (2 Layer Cell)
- Excellent performance
- Reliable through heavy use

Cons: - Nothing really

Other Thoughts: I purchased the 128GB version in April of 2014 to use as my system drive. I'm a pretty heavy computer user and keep my PC running 24/7, doing a fair bit of gaming on it as well, also it's a Debian Linux desktop. The boot time is relatively quick, booting up in less than a minute and apps open very quickly as expected of an SSD -- for a 'middle of the road' SSD, i'm already very happy with its performance and at 1 year I am also happy enough with its reliability. I will update this review when the drive fails on me.

3 out of 5 eggswas great... when it worked...

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP600 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP600S3-256GM-C

Pros: Good SSD, simple install, plug and go + format. easy peasy.

worked as my Steam SSD that JUST held games...

Cons: Didnt last long.
not even remotely close to what i had planned.

installed in july, drive was dead come end of november...

i understand the risks involved in lower brand hardware, but this is just wowing for how short it lived.

Other Thoughts: Plain and simple, this drive was great when it worked, im really not gonna lie there. i was leery given the "off brand" of the drive, and had some high hopes for it, sadly i was left with a nice 2.5" dust collector in my PC as ive had to disconnect it just to not wait an eternity for my PC to boot.

for a day or so before it finally died i would have slower than normal boot times, then it would pop up in my pc, and then vanish. Steam would think the drive is there, but couldnt access it, when id try to open it through explorer, it would just sit there with a white window. reboot to it not even showing in the BIOS anymore, reboot, now its back...

when this thing finally goes, youll KNOW as Windows will take the better part of an HOUR to boot... im not kidding... W10 took an hour to boot the 3rd day when i finally figured out this drive was completely failing, when my normal boot times are literal seconds... the second i unplugged this thing my PC was back to normal.

im disappointed that i cannot replace this drive or at least get my money back, but im not really surprised given the money i paid for this drive in the first place.

skip this and get a Mushkin if youre looking for a decent price SSD, because in this case, you really DO get what you pay for...

sorry Adata, i cant recommend these drives for anything.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty fast

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP600 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP600S3-256GM-C

Pros: This is a nifty little SSD. It's pretty fast, except....*Check Pros*

Cons: The only problem I have with the SSD is the boot time of my computer is pretty slow than what I was expecting. It could be user error, but I've changed some settings to hopefully decrease the time it takes to boot up my computer.

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP600 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP600S3-256GM-C

Pros: none

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 1 month

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP600 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP600S3-256GM-C

Pros: Came with information to download migration software. However the process is way too elaborate and confusing.
Worked fine my SATA 2 MOBO..

Cons: Died shortly after one month of use. Caused me hours of troubleshooting and wasted efforts. Eventually narrowed down the issue to the SSD card.

Other Thoughts: One needs to be prepared in case one of these things dies.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little devil

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP600 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP600S3-256GM-C

Pros: One of the fastest drives I've owned.

Cons: Wish it was a bigger size. Not really a "con".

Other Thoughts: Never expected this good of a drive. Lightning fast (7 seconds since post) with 8.1. Shuts down before you put the set the mouse next to the keyboard (3-4 seconds only). A real surprise, considering I bought it for the price. Didn't know much about ADATA. Now I do.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat while it worked.

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP600 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP600S3-256GM-C

Pros: The SSD worked great out of the box. It was the first one I've ever owned. Fast boot times and no mechanical spinning of the drives.

Cons: Its been about 6 months since owning the drive and now it is giving me issues. I am currently running Windows 8.1 and it is causing my computer to stutter at times and even reset a few other times. I run an error check and it finds errors constantly, even after "fixing" them.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this SSD. Should've just spent more money on a better quality one.
