    Phoronix: ADATA SU800 128GB SSD On Linux

    Needing to replace a failed hard drive in one of our server room benchmark systems, I decided to try out the ADATA SU800 as something new. It's an affordable SATA 3.0 SSD and in not trying out an ADATA SSD in a while, I decided to purchase this one and run some benchmarks on it prior to commissioning it to its new home.

    Wow ! Like you said....when compared to a spinning rust drive the value play becomes clear. Yeah....not the faster tool in the toolbox compared to other SSD drives but a mighty cheap performance enhancer to an older machine or if your budget won't allow for any more.

    Nice article ! Thanks !

      Wow, for $60 this 3D NAND SSD is a great value. And the 256GB is $95 which is also very good.

        How does it compare in a RAID controller scenario?

          and for reference was also a Western Digital WD10EZRX-00A 1TB SATA 3.0 HDD for reference.
          I think you double referenced there, I think.

            lolwhat? modern hard drives use platters made of coated glass.

              Michael, I wish you would include the endurance spec measured in TBW in your SSD reviews, and graph it against the competition. There's actually quite a range even amongst consumer grade SSD's.

                Just using a phrase they say over at the theregister.com It's a British based tech news site. Weird sense of humor only the Brits have. Relax....I know what they are made of.

                  It could also be aluminium, glass or ceramic materials. It just have to be non-magnetic.

                  Hitachi DeathStars used glass platters btw
