+ Speed. I saw read speeds of 1000+MB/s and write 800+MB/s
+ Heatsink included (see Cons)
* Runs hot. After installing the heatsink it runs warm. I first installed without the heatsink and saw idle temps of 60ºC and it cracked 80ºC once while in use. After installing the heatsink, idle temps hover around 45ºC and working temps from 55ºC inching up into the 60s. Now, this is also while running an external fan. Without the external fan, more than 60ºC isn't uncommon.
For reference, this stick is currently housed in an Acer E5-575-33BM laptop with decent ventilation, and is functioning as my primary boot drive running Win10 Home. If you're installing into a tower with good airflow and a couple good fans, you may not have a problem with heat. If you're installing into a laptop (even one with adequate airflow), there's a good chance you'll bump into the heat problem.
All in all, I'm pleased with the drive, though the heat worries me, but for the price I feel it's a worthwhile investment for the added speed. I'll update should anything significant happen. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the product or my experience with it, please leave a comment and I'll do my best to answer.
Built a new HTPC on the AM4 platform using a Gigabyte AB350M-D3H paired with an A8-9600 along with Adata's XPG Gammix 8gb dual channel kit. All I needed was a small boot drive for this system and this drive fit the bill. All I can say is 'wow'! Crystal Disk Mark gave read speeds of 750mb/s. The drive is advertised at 1000mb/s, in several tests it's never hit about 750... why, I'm not sure at this point, but I will update if/when I do figure it out. Regardless this replaced an old mech drive and is still a huge upgrade for me.
My own fault, but I didn't see until it was too late that the way the logo is printed on the heat sink would actually be upside down in a normal tower case. I put it on as if the case would be standing and I could read it (which I didn't have to because it doesn't even matter in a HTPC obviously!) I then realize it's wrong and couldn't get the thing back off, was afraid I'd tear up a critical part of the drive trying to fix it.
I didn't pay attention on the easiest thing... but logo lettering? I understand these can go into laptops where the orientation doesn't matter but you would think they would cater more to the normal tower PC crowd. Just a bummer really. Would've spent an extra buck or three if it meant having two heatsinks with the lettering which ever way I need it. (it's a thin strip of aluminum.. that's it)
Attached a pic showing read/write speeds and the boot time range between task manager and GU5. The drive idles around 50c and hit 58c under stress. It's the warmest component in the build by far, but after searching around seems like it's normal.
All in all, I'm satisfied with it!
Maybe I got a bad drive, but as of now I am steering clear of ADATA for my future SSD needs.
TL;DR this drive is fast... when it wants to work. Spend a little more and get a samsung or wd drive.
ORIGINAL: Not noticeably faster to the eye compared to the SSD it replaced, but love to see the IO graph when it is reading a few hundred of megabytes more than the SATA SSD.
Using for dual booting Windows 10 (whole OS and apps) and Arch Linux (only OS files, /home at the old SSD), it is quick, and have a great price.
In order to use the 6 SATA ports of my B350 motherboard, I explicitly required an NVME PCIE x2 (instead of the more easily available x4, otherwise 2 SATA ports would be disabled), so that was my main requirement, top speed was not a priority as, again, to the naked eye, SSD and NVME are the same to me at OS level, loading apps and so, while benchmarking them is another story and NVME wins across all categories, however, do you *USE* your computer? or just play benchmarks in it? Hehe, that's the point.
