ADATA XPG SX900 128 GB SSD Review

Sandforce doesn't get much faster than this. Adata also gives us more capacity (compared to other 128 GB Sandforced based SSDs).

The ADATA XPG SX900 is an insanely fast drive. I didn't think we were going to get any more speed out of the Sandforce controller, but this ADATA has squeezed a few more MB/s.

The real story here is that the SX900 is higher capacity than the other Sandforce drives. This might not be a big deal to some, but if the price is right, this is the drive to go for. Check out the video for the rest!

This SSD was also features in these two videos:

 dont sell out to sponsers... i'm not saying to did.... just seems kinda.... you know

Don't worry. There is no sponsorship and no money going on behind the scenes. This product is just good, bottom line. You can check around the web... read some other unbiased reviews. They all say about the same thing. 

If something sucks I'll say it... The bottom line is that this drive beat everything else I have personally tested and it has a little extra speed. Having said that, I am really curious to play with some larger OCZ Vertex 4 drives. I really like what they are doing with the new firmware.

 I'm watching this while there's a severe thunderstorm literally in my backyeard. BRING IT ON LIGHTENING!   I DON'T FEAR YOU THUNDER!

 I might get one of these. I'm not exactly a Multi Sotorage Device Guy, but I should probably get an SSD and use my 1TB HDD for everything else.

 Any chance this SSD would work in a UX32VD? Was looking at the details and its 9.5mm in depth whereas the Vertex you used was 9.1mm, will the same method of removing the bottom of the housing make it fit?
