ADATA XPG SX900 128GB SSD Review

Today we are going to look at the ADATA SX900 SSD (specifically the 128GB version.) We were very apprehensive when Ashu from ADATA India contacted us a few weeks ago and wanted [E] to have a look at the drive. We have looked at various 128GB drives before (many with the now common Sandforce 2281 controller) and had a feeling that any serious user would easily (and quickly) run out of usable space on the cramped SSD. As for me, the perfect size lies somewhere in between 256GB to 400GB (this is plenty to store a LOT of work data + games unless you are working on the next block buster movie recorded at 48 FPS!)

The overall package was quite impressive and complete. The SSD already had the most recent firmware available installed (that makes it difficult for newbies to shoot themselves in the foot while updating it.) The included 2.5" to 3.5" bracket would also come very handy if the drive was being installed into a desktop cabinet. A big+ for that.

What really stood out though was the price and the promise that the ADATA derivative of the venerable Sandforce controller based SSD would give the end user more usable space than every other 120/128 GB drive in the market. How did ADATA achieve that feat without compromising long term data integrity and speed? Lets go on and find out...

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

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