PROS
  • Adata SSD Toolbox
  • Acronis Data Migration
  • Fair pricing
CONS
  • Micron 384Gbit 3D TLC NAND
  • Low throughput
  • High latency
  • Low notebook battery life
VERDICT
We compared the Adata Ultimate SU800 512GB to a handful of other products with the same capacity and felt this product let us down. We can't recommend it over the Crucial MX300 525GB, but that is a very low bar to start with. Even with an amazing holiday deal (a very low price), we would spend more to get a better SSD.


Slow 3D TLC with fast SLC cache doth not a good SSD make!

Of late I've been sourcing my SSDs from CEX.
It's fairly easy to find stuff to sell profitably to them for store credit, then use the store credit to pick up a bargain.
Only last week I bought a 512GB Crucial M4 for £75 store credit. (~£35 real world cash cost).
It turned out to be a Dell branded Micron C400 with low wear (presumably it'd been stripped from a laptop).

It might be previous gen, but SATA is largely the bottleneck, so unless you're going for NVMe, I don't see much point in the newer gen. SATA SSDs.
