ADATA Ultimate SU800 512GB SSD Review

Verdict: The SU800 is a tricky drive. For starters the 128GB model simply does not have enough flash chips on the drive to extract much parallelism from the controller. This is not a problem for the 512GB (or 256GB) model, but it is something consumers should be aware of if they are looking for a smaller...

The ADATA Ultimate SU800 SSD Review (128GB, 256GB, 512GB)

Verdict: Judged against other entry-level SATA SSD, the ADATA Ultimate SU800 does not offer many significant performance improvements from its use of Micron 3D TLC NAND. Even if Micron's 3D TLC were substantially faster than the planar TLC it is competing against, the capacity of 384Gb per die compared to...

Verdict: The prototype reference SSD we used for the SMI SM2258 technical preview provided better performance than the Adata Ultimate SU800. We went back to examine the difference between the two products and found one feature that stood out as a clear differentiator between the two.

ADATA Ultimate SU800 (256GB) SSD Review

Verdict: The ADATA Ultimate SU800 retails at around USD 70 and it is an amazingly speedy entry-level SSD and it comes with 3 years warranty which is quite long when it comes to coverage for computer components.

Adata's Ultimate SU800 512GB SSD reviewed

Verdict: Adata's SU800 got off to a rocky start with our IOMeter sequential write test, but its real-world performance should have at least partially made up for that. Let's see where it lands overall. To compare each drive, we take the geometric mean of a basket of results from our test suite.

Pros: Available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities, Silicon Motion SM2258 controller, Micron 3D TLC NAND, Good sequential and random read and write performance, Huge SLC cache, RAID Engine, Data Shaping and LDPC ECC technologies, Ultra-slim form factor, Includes mounting spacer for 9.5mm...
Cons: Write speed drops considerably when SLC cache is full, Does not support hardware based encryption
Verdict: CDRLabs has taken an in depth look ADATA's new Ultimate SU800 SSD. Designed for use in ultrabooks, notebooks, and desktops, this mid-range SSD is powered by Silicon Motion's new SM2258 controller and is the first drive from ADATA to come equipped with 3D TLC NAND flash.

Pros: Competitive pricing, Good software, Fast sequential reads
Cons: Shoppers must register to get "bundled" migration-software key, Not the fastest or the cheapest SSD
Verdict: The SU800 isn't quite the "ultimate" anything, but it is a decently performing SSD at a competitive price, thanks to its use of 3D TLC NAND.

ADATA SU 800 512 GB 2.5" SSD Review

Verdict: In the age of growing technology, gone are the days where an SSD is a luxury. With how cheap SSDs are getting, they seem to me more of a necessity, at least for the boot drive. But what about general storage?

It works ok but feels cheaper and slower than expected

Verdict: This ssd works fine however it does feel slower than my previous ssd (Kingston a400 ssd) even though it advertises faster read and write speeds. I tried reinstalling from backup as well as from scratch but nothing. The materials also feel significantly cheaper than expected.

Decent drive, very good value.

Verdict: Definitely good option for base builds with low requirements. My friends wife is very happy with the change this SSD made to her laptop that had normal 5400rpm HDD. Now she doesn't hate using it due to the delays of operation . Will see how durable it will be along the way.

Great performance SSD for real cheap price

Verdict: Great performance. Cheap. Pair it with ADATA DRAM and voila, you will see the magic! Here's my benchmark: * MB/s = 1,000,000 bytes/s [SATA/600 = 600,000,000 bytes/s] * KB = 1000 bytes, KiB = 1024 bytes Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 562.195 MB/s Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 474.089 MB/s Random...

good drive

Pros: Didn't failed yet, Price, i got it for 70$ CAD
Cons: Feel cheap in my hands (it's my first SSD, so perhaps they are all like that
Verdict: After only 2 weeks I realize that 128GB is quite small for a SSD, so get a bigger one. But if you only need a small one (think twice it fills up faster than you think), this is a good SSD (sorry for bad english)

Another Good SSD for Boot or Laptops w/o Lots of Files

Pros: - 3D Nand - SLC technology - Was on sale - Boot time is now abut 4 seconds. Seriously, 4 seconds
Cons: Acronis key requires online registration at ADATA and Acronis. Then, if you jump through all the hoops & hurdles correctly, you get the activation key code. I think contestants on Most Extreme Elimination have it easier. It was nicer when the cloning software key or disk was included in the box
Verdict: Popped this into a new mid-line Acer i3 based laptop with 4GB ram. Boot time dropped from about 15 seconds with 5400 rpm HDD to 4 seconds with this SSD! Unbelievable...4 Seconds! Of course, I have disabled all the bloatware and unneeded process at start-up, however the 11 second savings is on the...

ADATA SU800 Review

Pros: Great Value / Performance
Cons: Taking apart SSD/ Lacking some critical features
Verdict: SSDs are a required upgrade with how much lower the cost per Gigabyte is today. If you're wondering what's changed in the storage market after the past few years, there has been some improvements.
