    I hate this company and if I were you I would stay away from them.

    I bought this for around £120 in late 2020 when it was still fairly new. The reason I bought it was because a trustworthy Youtube channel (Level1Techs)did some tests on it and were blown away by its performance, so I paid a little extra for it.

    I install it and the performance is crap. I test it with CrystalDiskMark and the results are depressing.

    Adata claimed R/W speed up to 3500/3000MB/s.
    I got R/W speed of around 2300/2000MB/s

    A few months later, Linus Tech Tips puts out a video that finally answers my question. Turns out Adata downgraded the controller and flash chips to cheaper inferior ones in secret.

    Didn't tell anyone. Didn't change the price. Didn't amend the advertised speeds.

    Basically the drive they sent to reviewers and early buyers is superior to the one they sent consumers like me.

    Remember, this wasn't an accidental thing, this was an executive decision by the company to lie to, and cheat its own customers. I'm never trusting that company with my money ever again. (edited)

    I doubt many people will care if it takes a few seconds longer to move a very large file around.
    General performance (OS/apps/games) will still be great.

    Like the comment by someone else above, that was also 2 years ago, Linus himself stated the change was likely due to supply chain issues at the time.
    Those issues have been gone for a while now and there may even have been newer revisions of the drive.

    Also, he states there was a 'measurable difference'. I'm sure there was.
    That doesn't mean it's enough for anyone to actually care about.
    If I bought a 100m rope in 2018 and another in 2020 that had a 'measurable difference' of 30m less, would I care?

    Would you rather trust WD? They did a far worse bait and switch, replacing the TLC NAND with QLC NAND in the SN550 on the sly.

    Would you trust Crucial? They did exactly the same with the P1/P2.

    Would you trust Kingston? They did exactly the same with the NV2.

    Would you trust Samsung? In the last year or so they managed to trash countless different model drives with duff firmware revisions.

    But you want to avoid ADATA because it takes 20 seconds longer to move a 5GB file?
    Utter nonsense, like the poster above I replied to.

    There are some serious comedians in this place. (edited)

    Watch out with these i bought 2 of them in 2020 exact same day and both from Amazon. They were both different revisions. One was ok speedwise the other much slower as they switched out parts silently. Firmware on them was different and not interchangable
    3 years have passed now so make of that what you will.

    Ofc the price I paid was much higher so It mattered more.
    @£38.99 now so very cheap and I maybe would have been more forgiving of the differences. (edited)

    They do sometimes switch out parts (as do many of the smaller brands) but normally with parts of equal performance, or at least nothing that you'd likely notice in real world use.

    I bought a 1TB Adata SX8200 Pro from Amazon in March 2021 for £99.99. Even back then here there were comments saying this drive has been downgraded, stay away etc. It's being used to run Windows 11 and games like MSFS 2020 so lots of updates which happen with no issues and it's never felt slow. Just did a quick speed test I'm getting 3284 MB/s read and 2544 MB/s write. Not bad considering it's the system drive in use and 70% full.

    I bought another in April this year from eBuyer for £63 ouch! It's only 10% full and after a speed test I got 3472 MB/s read and 2832 MB/s write. So I don't see a drop in speed with the recent drives either. (edited)

    Yeah, people overreact to relatively minor changes.
    Don't see how anyone could grumble at this price, unbeatable value.

    Bought one 2 years ago and it's brilliant. Very happy with the speed and reliabilty.

    Top! Bought mine a few years ago and have no regrets

    prices with m2 drive is ridiculous now a days , shame if only GPU and CPU followed the same route
  7. beaversrus's avatar
    It's £38.99 now though so the harm is a little less to me as like you I paid £120 ish for each of my SX8200 Pros but it means you may not be able to trust the claimed advertised speed of the product. If you are limiting this in USB caddy £38.99 for a TLC - DRAM is a good deal still made better if it reaches claimed speeds in 3x4 pcie (edited)

    Bought the 256GB version in February 2020 for £55 and that felt like a bargain at the time. Prices just keep going down.

    FWIW mine gives the advertised speeds for the 256, 3280 Read / 1465 Write.

    Ooh, we have a new sub-£40 1TB king!
    The Kioxia Exceria has now been relegated to 2nd place.

    Fantastic SSD, has since been superseded by the ADATA S70 Blade (which are also nice and cheap for high end gen4), so seeing these get a nice price drop is more than welcome. (edited)

    Crazy , bargain
  13. monsterism's avatar
    Stupid question but can I return this unopened even though its fulfilled by ebuyer as I bought the 2tb version
    The.Fat.Cat's avatar
    They may charge return delivery or a restocking fee, just see what it says when you try the return option.

    Wow, prices for storage are ridiculously cheap now.
