Not bad, though consider that it's a DRAMless SSD with a cheap Maxiotek controller (usually found in those cheap Chinese off-brand SSDs on Ebay/Amazon). Obviously still better than a hard drive, but keep in mind the drawbacks. They're not really a good choice for a boot drive, for example.

We would not buy another Adata drive after the last batch of 100 that we bought, 17 have failed in the first 6 months.I must say that before that they were ok.

£60 by the end of the month


Even that is still conceding too early imho.
I'm waiting for £25 for 2.5TB.

(Psst. Good one OP, off the record )

Thanks OP
This be a hot one.
This will be good for games, media storage and anything that reads data rather than writes too the drive in large quantities.

Sounds like an interesting drive to pop into a games console, given it's lean towards higher read than write speeds. Tempted to grab one for my PS4

Wanting to store media to video edit from. Fast enough for that vs premium brands?

Out of curiosity, are you a PC reseller or just to upgrade existing PC park?
Wow that is cheap! Have some heat

Me too, anyone tried one on ps4? Seems a good upgrade to do, as I'm now holding off getting a pro and waiting for ps5

Was it a particular model you had issues with? I'm still wondering how the guy who ordered 200 integral drives got on.
Is this worth the upgrade from evo 850 for bigger storage?

The Evo is faster - see here ssd.userbenchmark.com/Com…166

Although if you really need the storage maybe use as a secondary drive? Not sure how those numbers translate real world usage wise though.
Cor What a forkin corkin bargin!!
Can SSD prices get any lower? Been mad how low they've been getting, tempting me to go for a full SSD setup
They would sell SO many more of these if they really were called WOWADATA

Extremely smelting hot value for money SSD, tempted to replace one of the SmartTV plugged in usb hubs with a junk sata in, with one of these puppies!
This is cheap, but personally I dont mind adding abit extra to get a more premium brand ssd but at this price it cant be faulted but given the guy who bought 100 had 17 fail...I would rather add the extra for Samsung or sandisk extreme than be left with a dead drive

Great price, 83p per GB. My experience, whilst not doing anything fancy with this drive, has been good.
Who thought this was a food standard rating

I've got one, and it's great for an OS drive. And I have one with DRAM too. Plenty of SSD's have no DRAM nowadays to drive down the price.

hope they had the 3 year warranty that comes with these
You are only buying 1TB of storage if you have a lot that you want to keep.
You therefore don't want to lose this this data. Why buy an inferior product with a higher risk or failure and risk losing everything to save a few quid.
The few quid saved will not seem such a good idea once you spend days trying to recover at a large expense.
Warranty on hard drives are useless because I don't want to send all my personal data back to a company with no idea where it will end up.

Probably not. Having read that review someone posted of the 480GB model, the write speeds go through the floor once you reach about 80% capacity (iirc)

Thanks, will wait for one of the premium drives to drop further. Thanks

I'd argue that for this amount of SSD storage at this price you are buying if you have a lot of large files you move around frequently, which is where the speed bonus would help. as previously mentioned this drive would be good for storing games, or another example would be a page/swap drive, where if the data is lost it wouldn't really matter. you wouldn't expect to keep data on this drive as any sensible person would backup to infrequently accessed, slower, more TB/£ HDDs
wow
i took a punt for my laptop it currently takes alot longer to boot up than i would like it to and to load stuff and its not a bad spec its mainly the hard drive even though partitioned when its idle its constantly jumping to max disk usage, ill keep the mechanical drive as a backup incase the ssd fails or data fails (i5 dual, 8gb ram, 1gb nvidia) i'll wait for a more premium drive like a samsung for my gaming laptop however as i've heard the adatas are prone to overheating
