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...

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.

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'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: 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?

Kept an older computer alive

Verdict: Installed this SSD, high frequency RAM, and a better CPU (old intel socket) into my girlfriend's Lenovo G500 laptop. By far the biggest bang for the buck in performance was this SSD. She pretty much keeps the computer on all the time and this has been reliable and fast.

Good value for money

Verdict: 119.2GB of storage in total. System boots significantly faster in comparison to HDD I had before. Item was sent quickly, however it wasn't well protected.

Very fast for the price

Verdict: I purchased a LARGE quantity of these SSD drives to replace all rotating HDD in our business's computers. I take 2 years old HP business line desktop computers (Intel i5 w/ 4 GB RAM) running Windows 10 Pro and replaced the factory 7200 RPM HDD (which is already a high end HDD) by these SSD drives...

ADATA SU800 Ultimate 128GB SATA3 2.5" 3D NAND SSD - 3Yr

Verdict: Good cheap SSD. If you don't have a means to clone your new SSD from your existing HD/SSD the free True Image software works well.

Ubuntu 17.04 shows little improvement

Pros: The drive seems reliable and fast
Cons: ASUS B-350M/CSM motherboard will not recognize the SSD as the primary boot device, even though it is the only one with a boot flag set, Ubuntu 17.04 installer crashes trying to access the device, even after I set a default partition table on it.
Verdict: I can't really blame the SSD for all of my problems nor the lack of performance improvements. Linux is notoriously aggressive about caching disk files in main memory if you have free memory available. The SSD only improves the initial startup time of programs, not the subsequent startup times.

"Performance and quality at a great price"

Verdict: The specs of the drive are great but installed this drive is fast, even for a SSD I find the load times quicker than my previous drive which boasted the same numbers. A great price and excellent choice if your looking at upgrading to a SSD.

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.
