Reviews Word on the street for the ADATA S511


9.2
Overall ADATA's S511 SSD is a great choice if you are in the market for a Sandforce driven SATA 6 Gbps SSD.

9.0
And since the OCZ Vertex 3 has been the pace setter for all SSDs until now, the A-Data S511's performance is sure to raise some eyebrows.

9.1 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

As well as some impressive performance chops the S511 is also one of the cheaper SandForce 240GB drives out there.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2011)
Not only does the SSD deliver great performance to you in PC user land, it puts pressure on manufacturers to deliver a faster, better interface.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2011)
Compressible write performance is still very much the domain of OCZ's SSD.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2011)

Speed

Actually I think the S511 might be a bit faster than the Vertex 3 when 120 GB versions are pitted against each other.
by techPowerUp!
The A-Data S511 is around £35 cheaper than the equivalent OCZ Vertex 3, and for that you get a healthy, reliable and – in many ways – faster SSD.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2011)

Interface

ADATA's S511 uses the SATA 6 Gbps interface.
by techPowerUp!
The read/write speeds it offers are staggering, and verge dangerously near the SATA 3 port's maximum throughput of 600 MB/s..
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2011)

Capacity

The 16 flash chips are made by Intel and have a capacity of 8 GB each, they are produced in a 25 nanometer production process.

ADATA's package comes with a small window which lets you take a look at the capacity printed on the SSD.
