Well, unfortunately, the synthetic benchmarks are just that and you should take the them with a grain of salt. 1) at least Samsung now shows the performance of the drives when they run out of TLC cache on the EVO and EVO Plus. When transferring large files, expect no more than 900Mbps write for the 500GB Samsung EVO drives. On the XPG, I can't find that information on their website, but after several of my own 8GB single file transfers to this drive, it usually falls between 400Mbps and 600Mbps in a matter of seconds and fluctuates in that range, although occasionally reaching 900Mbps for very brief periods. This is a far cry from the 500GB versions specifications and we'll below the capabilities of my existing and older/smaller PCIe NVME drives.
You might say these speeds are based on my hardware or the file being transfered, but then why do the older drives in my system still perform better under the same conditions and closer to their advertised speeds? My older 256GB Samsung 950 Pro still outpaces it with a steady 900Mbps on the same file writes and my other first generation MyDigital BPX 500GB also sees 900Mbps writes with the same file tests. I've also swapped the 3 drives so they each test the file copies in the onboard m.2 slot and the 2 different PCI adapters on the 16 and 8 lane slots. While the Samsung and BPX are relatively consistent at about 900Mbps write copies onto them, the XPG is usually below 600Mbps in these real world file transfers.
So, yeah, it meets the Crystal DiskMark "test" specs, but performs leaps and bounds slower than the advertised speeds when it comes to writing larger files (8GB files aren't overly huge when you consider backup software and Blu-ray iso's are much larger).
I'd look elsewhere for your next PCIe NVMe purchase. The price is great at $99, but not when you realize it's barely on PAR with standard SATA ssd's in real-world file transfers that fall well below the advertised speeds of inflated and synthetic benchmarks.
Note that laptop benchmarks were lower; I put this in my desktop to get a maximum figure from CrystalDisk.
I did stick the heat spreader on because, in my laptop, it has to make contact with a plate for heat dissipation, and I removed the OEM crappy silicone-feeling sticky 'thermal pad' and replaced it with AS5. Wondering if perhaps I should've done that on the inside of the ADATA plate too.
FYI: this benchmarks much higher than the sister product, the Gammix S11, but ADATA just announced a 'Pro' version of that one too. We'll see how it is.
For now, at this price (215 presently), you really can't beat it for a 1TB drive. Buy this one, not the S11 or XPG non-Pro.
Update: As prices fell, I bought a second 1TB SX8200 Pro for my desktop and couldn't be happier. And as of writing this, there's even a coupon for it. Unbelievable value. Now, there are some people who say these synthetic benchmarks aren't indicative of real-world performance; this is true IF you use these drives as bulk-file storage. This is how higher-density (3D/QLC/etc.) NAND flash works - it's slower and backed up by a tiny amount of lower-density, much faster cache that runs out. But that's why people who need huge storage still buy several 3TB+ mechanical HDDs, right? Very few people reading this are probably trying to move terabytes of ISO or raw video files daily with their nVME drives (unless you do it as a profession, in which case money is no object, and you probably have a company NAS) - you're probably going to use it as a game and OS drive, which this is perfect for, with a few hundred/thousand tiny files being read in random orders to load up Battlefield or Overwatch or Windows, rarely being written to in solid sequential order for gigabytes upon gigabytes except during a one-time install. In other words, this is perfect as a game/OS drive, not for a large video/storage cache.
Top international reviews
I wanted something fast since I was going for an M.2 SSD. No point getting a slow SATA M.2 SSD.
I got this for just over £200 and that was insane value for money considering this thing's performance.
It's super fast. My entire PC (with a fat 1070ti) boots up from scratch in 15 seconds. Games boot up a lot faster compared to my old PC, which had a regular 2.5 SSD.
BE WARNED that you will not get over 3000mb/s read and write unless it's under load and/if you overclock it. I'm getting read and write speeds anywhere between 1800-2800mb/s usually. Some things will be faster than other things and as with most things, it's never 100% consistent. I will try loading the same game multiple times and the load times will change slightly each time. May have nothing to do with the SSD itself but it's worth keeping in mind.
It was super easy to install. I didn't use the heat sink which came in the box since my motherboard had its own M.2 SSD heat sinks, but from what I could tell, the included heat sink will do you fine. No need for a separate heat sink unless you're really going to push your PC with 4K gaming or serious overclocking.
If you have this much money to spend on an SSD, this is the clear choice for £200. Nothing beats it in a price/performance battle.
So after much research I order a NVMe M.2 adaptor card for the MacBook https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sintech-Replace-MZ-JPU128T-SD6PQ4M-128G-MacBook/dp/B01CWWAENG/ and the ADATA SX8200 512GB drive.
After backing my existing drive, I swapped out the Apple PCI SSD and replaced it with the adaptor board with the ADATA SX8200. Very straightforward and easy to install. I used a trial version of Carbon Copy Cloner to backup and restore.
The new drive works fine with MacOS Catalina, sleeping and hibernating works perfectly. Speed wise I'm nowhere near what this drive is capable of and in hindsight I could have probably got away with a SX6000 but that is a limitation of a 6 year old MacBook and not the drive. That said the read speed has doubled and the write speed is nearly 4x faster.
A worthwhile upgrade that has breathed new life into my laptop.
Adata has an annoying registration process, if you are me and the system won't cough up the email reset.
I wish the drive was like my SX8200NP and was preset up with over partitioning, but it does cut back usable storage from 512GB to 480GB. The performance increase and data integrity is worth it to me, but marketing and people love bigger numbers.
The Adata tool kit software is really great in some ways, tells you how many sectors have been swapped, how many are left in reserve, something I wish Samsung's magician did. The latest version though has issues with the latest build of Win 10 x64, it can't read the drive temp and the bytes written.
The toolkit also seems incapable of doing firmware updates and so you will have to go to Adata's site, log in, and check for firmware updates manually.
The drive is bloody fast when properly set up and has some extra cooling. All NVME drives run warm, it's a side effect of stuffing so many parts in such a small place.
It's a very good value considering it's warranty, speed, and the included little heatsink which does really help it out thermally.
I use a SX8200NP 480GB for my OS and programs, while I use this SX8200PNP 512GB for my Steam drive.
I have a lot of Samsung flash, in my personal machines, from an 840Pro to a 950 Pro and 860 Evo. So I'm what you could say as being biased against anyone else, and I'm definitely not disappointed with Adatas drives. I had to reach for gripes to be honest.
If they could add a ram cache ability to the toolkit or even as a seperate program, it would be great.
Just a helpful reminder, whatever nvme drive you choose, flash performs and lasts longer the cooler you can keep it. Also make sure to turn off the cache purging features of the drive in Windows. MS geared their NVME driver for data integrity and protection over performance. So if those settings are set, you can expect the drive to run much slower.
The 256GB drive will not perform as well as the 512 or 1024GB versions simply due to the number of flash chips/channels available.
Edit: I included benchmark runs of the drive hooked up 4x Pci-e 2.0 links and 3.0 links to demonstrate the performance difference. On 4 x 3.0, it was actually being limited by the i7-4790.
I did a real world test transfering a 46 GB video file to a sata ssd achieving 140 MB/s and a copy back to the drive at 260 MB/s. So, comparing to a sata ssd this drive is about twice as fast in writing and many times faster in reading.
If you take only those factors into consideration, great. There's no reason not to buy this product. However, you're advertised "read/write up to 3500/3000MB/s", in reality, you'll probably receive ~2750MB Read | ~2200 Write. Now, by no means are these speeds slow, but when you're advertising "up to" those kinds of speeds. People expect to receive metrics similar to the ones you advertise.
Still better than most of the other SSDs on the market. This brings competition to a market primarily dominated by Samsung due to reputation, I like it. The cheap price blows me away, and the heatsink isn't much but surely appreciated.
Overall: 8.4/10. Could have been better if you advertised lower numbers, or if you were to get the same performance advertised. I also have an understanding that that performance may reflect the 1TB version, but that's a totally different product.
Overall I am happy as I took a gamble as Adata is a new company (about 18 years old). There drives are well reviewed and highly rated and are a good cheaper alternative to Samsung which I was originally considering.
Ironically though I put it in a Dell XPS 13 9350 are it works brilliantly! Completely silent with no fans on ever and yet ultra fast and apparently minimum heat, judging by other system temperatures.
I don't understand why the same SSD can be so incompatible with one system but so welcoming of another, but arguable it happens!
Dont love that uk product didn't include the fixing screw as seen on you tube videos.
Dont love lack of instruction or support included.
If you buy this to be your main drive, make sure you understand what your doing with regards to cloning etc.
I do have to state here that Amazon customer support is forthcoming BUT they only act as intermediaries with manufacturers who dont respond, so dont knock Amazon for trying.
Ok couple more good bits:
Once successful cloning is achieved by your own voyage of discovery learning, this drive delivers, I have added the included simple adhesive heatsink as the m.2 drives can run hot, so the more ventilation in your case the better or whatever other heat dissipation solution you come up with.
There are a lot of cloning software available but be careful as some of it is not free or fully functional. I used EasUS free 30 day trial very successfully.
Will definitely be looking for mb with at least 2 or more m.2 slots for future build as it eliminates cables/connectors required for drives and keeps the case nice and clean.
I've only ever bought Samsung SSDs. Among other drives, I've got a NVME 960 Pro (250GB) in my PC just for WINDOWS (I got it back in August 2017 and it's been doing the job fine ever since).
Why Adata? I built a SFF PC for my wife as a Christmas present. She's not an enthusiast as myself so she wouldn't care Adata or Samsung. In any case, I want going to put crap on her new PC but quite the opposite. So I checked the reviews and they're quite consistent: Adata 1TB is a strong performer. So I pulled the trigger.
I compared the new build against my build and my wife PC (Adata) has faster write/read speeds than mine. Whether you'll notice it or not is a different story.

It arrived the very next day..less than £60 for 512 Gig drive...not that long ago i paid over £120 for 120 gig...yes £1 for every gig..
Anyhoo....ya dont get that tiny stand off an 3mm screw..
But looking in my motherboard box..ASUS ROG STRIX X470-F..i found a pair of stand offs with matching screws..
To install i had to remove the graphics card..no biggy ...decided to clean inside of case whilst there..
Then remove heat sink cover..
At this point ya should take pictures of ya NVMe cos ya will need the serial number to claim ya free Acronis 2013..
But personally i already own Acronis 2019...(not 2020 too many bugs for me)..
but its easy as pie to fit..
Did a fresh vanilla Windows 10 PRO 1909..(November update )
Took 5 mins ...yes..FIVE mins..
So i am well chuffed...thing is once ya put ROG heat sink cover on it ..then place ya graphics card back in..there is nothing to see...
Have upped pictures of speed...plus upped pictures of the slow Kingston SSD (its gonna be a scratch disc now..)
Also added piccys of mechanical speed...
So to summarise i am buying another after just one days use..
Installation was easy and was just a case of plugging it into the m.2 slot on the motherboard and securing it with a screw.
The drive came with a stick on heat spreader and you will need to use this if your motherboard doesn`t have a heat spreader supplied with it.
This drive gets quite hot under extended use.
While the drive was working it delivered excellent speed and snappiness in use and i was really pleased with it, Unfortunately just over 2 months after purchase the drive stopped working and wasn`t recognised by my motherboard any more.
Further investigation using another motherboard led to the conclusion the drive had failed and was returned to the supplier.
I am not saying these drives have a build problem far from it just that the item i got was returned due to failure.
"Acronis key redemption has been temporarily suspended until May 11, 2020. Please contact our service center for more information."
At that point that was 9 days in the future! So I email the service center and get no response - no automated response or anything to say when I can expect a reply. I'm not even sure if my support request will get seen or handled.
Sorry Adata, get your act together! This is not acceptable. If you sell a product with included software licenses then you have to provide that license immediately on demand, not several days or weeks in the future. Whatever internal IT problems you're having, get them sorted ASAP because it is impacting customers.
I'm sure this is good hardware but so far I have no idea because I can't get it fully installed.
Chose the ADATA XPG over the slightly cheaper but slower PNY XLR8 CS3030 M.2 NVMe 500GB SSD
Only grip is that none of them include screws to fix it onto the motherboard. Had to take one out from the motherboard. So before you buy the screw separately for these, make sure to have a look on your motherboard for what size you need as different motherboards use different sizes. I also have a HP EliteDesk 800 G1 mini which used a bigger size.
