With the ADATA SX900 128GB SSD, we got to see results that came really close to what the drive was rated at. Our fastest readings peaked at a little over 550MB/s read and 510MB/s write. The testing hit the specified read figure, but came short by only about 10MB/s for the write testing. At a price of about $110, the drive offers good performance at a cost a little bit lower than other drives of similar performance. The SandForce SF2281 controllers along with the NAND memory can be manufactured cheaply, which in turn lowers cost to the consumer.
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.
