Top Customer Reviews
If you want your computer to boot much faster than with a HDD this if for you.
If you want better battery life on your mobile pc this is for you.
If you want sustained high speed writes this is not for you.
This drive uses the cheaper slower type of flash memory and a small pool of faster high speed flash.
When you start copying files, it copies it to the small pool of fast memory and slowly offloads it to the slower memory.
This works well for small files, but for big files, it fills up quickly and the speed drops.
For this reason I recommend this drive to people who just want their computer to be snappier than it was before and arent planning on copying large amounts of files daily.
I tested the ADATA SP550 SSD on an Intel iCore 7 Haswell system running Fedora 23 with 32G of memory. The Adata SP550 SSD has read speeds that are limited only by the SATA 3 interface (excellent results). It has good but not industry leading write speeds. The manufacturer specifies read speeds of 530 Mbytes/second and write speeds of 480 MBytes/second which I confirmed using two bench marking tools, Gnome Disks and Sys_basher.
I took three sets of measurements with Gnome Disks, a set with a 1 MByte sample size, a set with a 10 MByte sample size and a set with a 100 MByte sample size.
1 Mbyte sample:______407.5 MBytes/second
10 MByte sample:_____525.5 MBytes/second
100 MByte sample:____534.5 MBytes/second
1 Mbyte sample:______230.2 MBytes/second
10 MByte sample:_____359.4 MBytes/second
100 MByte sample:____433.5 MBytes/second
Average Access (latency)
1 MByte sample:______0.13ms
10 MByte sample:_____0.13ms
100 MByte sample:____0.15ms
Another interesting measurement is to measure transfer rates for different file sizes. At small file sizes (less than 256K) the overhead of the operating system has a large impact, as file sizes grow larger the SSD approaches it's maximum transfer rates. Because of the limitations of the SATA 3 bus no SSD has faster read transfers than the ADATA SSD.

I am using this SSD drive for SSD caching using DM-CACHE which is part of Linux logical volume manager. This is a perfect use for SSD because the write do not go to SSD when the files are created, they only go to SSD after a read occurs, which means it is used only for files that I am actually using to make access to them faster. I am seeing a noticable speed up in i/o operations starting with the second time I accessing the same file. The most significant performance number for this purpose is latency and the latency numbers on this drive are also excellent.
I was provided this drive for testing and review as part of the new product introduction. Overall, this is an excellent SSD drive and my tests confirm the benchmarks provided by manufacturer.
Ali Julia review
Read/Write speeds are accurate from the manufacturer. This was purchased to replace the mechanical HDD in a low-end office workstation based on an i3 and 8Gb or RAM. This alone gave the feeling of triple the speed. Definitely worth the price to upgrade for added productivity. Other issues mentioned by other reviewers are that it uses a small amount of fast flash memory combined with larger and slower memory for the remainder. My experience is dealing with small Office documents and image files, and this combination works great for an office environment where there may not be a lot of large file sizes as you would with video or graphic design.
I used a cloning software (forgot the name of the software). I also happened to have an unused external HD enclosure. Popped the SSD into the enclosure and connected to my laptop via USB as an external drive. Had to use Windows Disk Mgmt to format and assign the SSD a drive letter. Once that was done, I used the cloning software to copy the old HD to the new SSD. Took nearly 3 hours. Once done, I swapped the hard drives and the laptop operated like nothing had changed. So easy. It does seem to boot a little faster.
I only needed this as replacement for my primary drive. I can't comment on performance speed as I really don't care. All that matters is that this old Vaio is still chugging along. I would buy this product again if I need another HD.
Side note, I put the old HD into the enclosure, then formatted it and now use it as an external HD. Even though my OS was telling me there's imminent failure, the old HD seems to be performing OK.
