Quoted from A-DATA XPG SX900 Reviews:Check out these quotes from A-DATA XPG SX900 reviews & previews
"During benchmark testing I noted that the performance results matched those of ultra-premium SSDs, yet ADATA's XPG SX900 series is presently among the least expensive solid state drives available in each capacity. For an entry-level price, consumers are getting a full upgrade kit with 2nd-generation LSI/SandForce SF-2281 SSD that performs among the fastest SATA-based storage solutions. On top of performance, you're also getting back 7% of the storage capacity previously 'lost' to provisioning. Together, these three reasons give the ADATA XPG SX900-series a formidable lead ahead of competing SSDs that lack speed, capacity, and price. I highly recommend the ADATA XPG SX900 Solid State Drive, as it's earned our Golden Tachometer Award for excellence."
"SSDs are slowly making their way further into the market and I have a feeling that they will eventually be in just about every late-model computer. We are already seeing them all over the place in netbooks, ultrabooks, desktops, RAID arrays, and more. For about the same price as other 550MB/s-capable drives in OCZ's lineup, it really comes down to personal choice and preference for brand name selection. The ADATA SX900 128GB would be a suitable choice for someone who desires to upgrade their computer cheaply and effectively and do so with a brand name that's been in the business and market of data storage for many years."
"The ADATA SX900 has been around for a while now, but its SandForce 2281 remains a very capable controller, and ADATA is offering it at an excellent price. Frugal shoppers should absolutely consider the SX900 when scoping out their next good deal."
"Even though the SX900 has at its heart an aging 2281 Flash Processing Unit, Last generation NAND and non-functioning TRIM it’s still a performance monster. Is it the world’s most powerful SSD? No it’s not but, it is without a doubt an elite drive. Any drive that can score 61,000 points running Vantage at 50% full is an absolute beast of a drive. There are two things that come to mind when considering a purchase of the ADATA XPG SX900. First is the lack of TRIM and second is the price of the drive. Lack of TRIM slowly leads to reduced performance however, I FULLY expect ADATA to snap out of their stupor and release updated firmware that will make this a non-issue. Current pricing of the ADATA XPG SX900 128GB is well under $1 per GB making this drive a real bargain. Should you buy it? That depends on what type of user you are. If you are an enthusiast who keeps everything fairly fresh on a regular basis then buy it. If you are a casual user who installs hardware and forgets about it then this is not the drive for you UNLESS a TRIM enabling firmware becomes available."
