This XPG SX8200 240gb model is giving me 3200 MB/s Read and 1200MB/s write. That's exceptional considering the price point. Comparing it to the more expensive 970 Evo (3600MB/s Read, 1500MB/s Write), the real world difference is negligible in my opinion. I would 100% recommend this drive to anyone, easy to install and get going.
**EDIT - 6 MONTH REVIEW** **See 2nd picture** After 6 months of general use, no heavy write tasks or anything of the sort, the R/W speeds have significantly dropped. The drive has never been above 50% capacity and I have dropped to 2200MBps read and a staggeringly reduced 300MBps write. Safe to say I am disappointed, and have docked two stars.
When I try a firmware update, I get a message that it cannot be done in IDE or Raid mode. I am in AHCI mode as I am replacing a Samsung EVO 850 that is in AHCI mode and I confirmed this via BIOS. And I cant' contact support! The website offers no options to update Firmware. There is no download option.
The cloning software is very old version of Acronis which failed. I struggled to make the clone bootable.
I installed in my ASUS Z170-A and it seems to be working, but the benchmarks do not approach rated speed.
I saw stellar reviews on this product and went with it instead of the Samsung EVO 970 which was $27 more expensive.
BTW: Why all these reviews about a different product? The product is M2 NVMe product not Sata.
Update: To be fair and objective I upgraded the rating. The UPC code on the box is covered by an Amazon label. Not sure why they do that and it is hard to remove. Secondly I managed to open a ticket and they responded with a Tech Support phone number. I got a tech on the line who was helpful. That number is 714-332-8735 or 714-332-8736. Their SSD Toolbox gives an error when trying to upgrade firmware. He said they have not updated the toolbox for the new product which should have been done when they released it. I was a little disappointed in the benchmark numbers I got, but everybody's PC is different. I did get it installed with difficulty due to cloning issues from one SSD to another. I could not get it to boot but probably not an issue specific to Adata. Getting their Acronis cloning software was not straight forward. I did get it work eventually using Diskpart and it seems fine. At $80, it was a great price.
My friend ordered an M.2 SSD made by Samsung and it came with the screw and mounting bolt. But I had to place another order for 1 tiny screw and wait several days for it to arrive.
If they're so cheap that they can't provide a screw that would cost them a tenth of a cent, what else did they cheap out on?
Also, the "heatspreader" seems useless. It is applied using a foamy, sticker-like adhesive. I can't imagine it helps lower the thermals. In fact, I'm pretty sure it would make it worse.
The drive itself is fine.

However, I had terrible experiences with the first drive that I received, which ADATA labelled as V5.0 on the box. This drive came boxed in all black packaging.
Firstly, I bought the drive as new, but it was used. This only became apparent when I ran a Windows 10 installer to discover that the drive had already been partitioned for Windows. Upon booting I ran HWiNFO which determined that over 500 GB had already been read from and written to the drive. Moreover, the drive started taking up to twenty seconds to boot to the BIOS and subsequently started occasionally BSODing with the error code DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION when I woke my device from sleep. This then started happening every time I woke my device.
ADATA list no firmware updates on their website and I had tried both re-installing Windows and extensive troubleshooting, so I sent the drive back. The replacement I received came packaged in a different box. This new box had red edging and carried the model number V6.0 on it. This new drive works flawlessly and has none of the same issues that the V5.0 drive had.
I cannot guarantee that V5.0 drives all have this problem but ADATA/Amazon are sending out different versions of supposedly the same SSD.
In short, the ADATA ASX8200NP 480 GB is an affordable option compared to the considerably more expensive alternatives from Samsung and WD, but double check the version you receive.
I added it to my build and initial impressions were very positive. Windows installed without issue and the drive is very fast. However I quickly ran into problems.
I paired this drive with an Asus ROG Strix B450-F gaming motherboard. Sometimes when switching the system on, it would just fail to see this M.2 drive was connected, with the only solution being to remove it from the system entirely and plug it back in again. Then on the next cold start it would lose sight again. I tried the following fixes with no success:
Updated the BIOS to the latest version
Tried the m.2 drive in both slots
Removed all SATA drives
Tried SATA drives in all 6 ports
Disabled CSM and re-installed Windows
In the end I was left with no alternative but to RMA the drive back to Amazon for a refund. I then opted for the Samsung 970 Evo I almost purchased in the first place, which seems to work perfectly.
So whilst this drive is probably fine, and when it worked was very quick, on a personal use basis I can’t really recommend it. It could have been an individual broken drive, or some sort of compatibility issue with that model of Asus board, but it’s worth being aware before you pull the trigger to make the purchase.
The speeds on paper are phenomenal for the drive and it will beat any SATA SSD hard drive. But when it comes to real world performance you may struggle to see any speed improvements unless you are doing something intensive like video editing or some CAD kind of stuff.
If you're looking at buying this drive to speed up your boot up time for Windows then you may be slightly disappointed as it didn't speed up mine at all. If you are looking at choosing between an NVME drive and a SATA SSD drive and they are around the same price, then go for the NVME drive, but if you are getting a large saving on the SATA SSD then it may still be worth going down the SATA route if you're just an everyday user. In the future you may see software utilising the speed of NVME more but at the moment you may not see too much of a difference.
Just don't forget to partition it to about 150GB for the Windows (C drive) and leave the rest for the D drive and games etc.. Otherwise it can become a real problem partitioning later and you risk having to use special tools as SSDs are not easy to partition once they have a fair bit of data on them. If windows wants to give you a very large partition, use EasUS partition master after you have loaded Windows..This way you have total control.
Pro is 512gb, the older non pro version is 480gb.
The speed is incredible, faster (in most aspects) than the 970 Evo, which is £30 more.
So easy to install, just grap the m.2 installation bag out of your motherboard box and screw it in.
I completely recommend this drive to anyone who wants a really fast NVMe drive for a fantastic price.
My drive scores.

CrystalDiskInfo does report the correct temperature though so this is maybe not an issue.
too bad that no small screw is supplied for this price
