What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

Our testing shows that this does not have any negative effect on performance at all, actually the A-DATA S599 is the fastest Sandforce based SSD we had in our labs so far.
by techPowerUp!
Overall A-DATA's drive is the fastest and cheapest 120-128 GB SSD right now, with leading performance scores and great Performance per Dollar and Performance per GB.
by techPowerUp!
According to A-DATA, the "total advertised capacity is the actual amount of NAND flash memory used, it may not be directly accessible but is given back in the form of endurance, write amplification, and performance.
by techPowerUp!

Capacity

The only real point of criticism I would have is that A-DATA advertises the drive as "128 GB", whereas it has only 120 GB usable capacity.
by techPowerUp!
128 GB label might be misleading, actual capacity 120 GB, 111.79 GB usable.

Price

9.1At the moment A-DATA's S599 128 GB is the cheapest 128 GB Sandforce SSD available on the market.
