Final Thoughts 
idea Performance Continued (Synthetic)

Performance Continued (Synthetic)

These benchmarks give a very good (but sometimes misleading) idea about the performance abilities of a storage device. If a SSD (say X) is performing better that another SSD (say Y) in a synthetic benchmark, we at least can come to expect similar real world performance out of the unit. They also give us a good idea about how effective the controller is in interfacing us (rather the operating system) to the fast NAND storage it sits atop of.

Note: We did not bother running these tests on the Velociraptor. Either it didn’t apply or the numbers would not have been off the charts, and not in a good way. We also did not bother running these benchmarks on the Apple branded SSD due to obvious reasons.

We tested the SSDs (XPG SX900 128GB and Samsung 840 Pro 256GB) under both 3Gbps & 6Gbps modes.

Disclaimer: We normally wouldn’t have cared for the 3Gbps results, but since we had some initial hiccups getting the ADATA unit to activate 6Gbps, we had to resort to testing it under 3Gbps. However, it turned out as a issued in the host system we were performing the test under, rather than a problem with the unit itself.

SATA 3Gbps

SATA 6Gbps

The numbers speak for themselves. The SATA 6Gbps performance is on par (or slightly better at times) with other Sandforce 2281 based drives. While the Sammy unit was clearly better with AS SSD, the numbers were very close when it came to the ATTO benchmark. We tend to place more importance on the AS SSD benchmark results as they tend to more closely align with what we end up observing in the real world (as evidenced by the previous section.)

(The Samsung 840 Pro AS SSD SATA 6Gbps result, for reference)

Re: ADATA XPG SX900 128GB SSD Review

To the point and a great review. Best part was the OS boot up time and game loading time , But Karan still it is expensive,I have never upgraded to an SSD and currently have a 150 GB VR running in my PC .

er... but at just 300 Rs. more, isnt this a much better deal:
OCZ 128GB Vertex 4 SSD

also doesn't have the dreaded sandforce controller.

A very thorough and detailed review here, Thanks @KiD0M4N , but speaking on a bystander pov, I still think that RAISE is needed in these ssd's.
Also as the market situation is, there are vertex4 non sandforce ssd's available, specially as the price is not so high for that.

Thanks for the review Karan. The performance is indeed impressive but the price will still keep this as a niche product.

Wow I knew SSDs were a lot faster than mechanical drives but I had no idea the difference in performance is this big! Next upgrade - SSD. Nice review

Re: ADATA XPG SX900 128GB SSD Review

Ok, but the price seems a bit high.
I would rather go with a OCZ Vertex 4 or Agility 3.
