ADATA S510 SSD to provide budget entry to the SSD world
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
ADATA have introduced what they are describing as a budget entry level solid state drive. The S510 SSD is available in an 120GB capacity only although for a true budget entry model they should probably get around to offering 60/64GB models instead. It uses the latest SF-2200 series SandForce controller which allows it to achieve read/write speeds in excess of 500MB/s. Using the latest Asynchronous MLC NAND Flash memory chips the drive is able to achieve 550MB/s read and 510MB/s write.
The drive is shipped with an adapter for 3.5″ to 2.5″ which is useful for older cases without native 2.5″ drive support. There is also free disk imaging software for easy movement of your OS. Max IOPS stand at 85000 and MTBF is million hours. The drive also uses only 4.5W of power fully active and 0.6W idle if you are considering this as a possible laptop upgrade. ADATA is offering a 3 year warranty on these new drives.
