The XPG (Xtreme Performance Gear) SX900 solid state drive is an expanded capacity SSD which uses new optimized firmware to utilize greater storage capacity of the NAND Flash components. With superior NAND Flash, the XPG SX900 SSD reaches new levels of stability and performance. The drive breaks new ground in storage capacity for SSDs utilizing the SandForce 2281 controller, reaching 512GB, a 7% increase over common SSDs in the market that use a SandForce controller. This represents a milestone in ADATA’s history of NAND Flash based products.
Super full capacity with high performance
The XPG (Xtreme Performance Gear) family of products has been expanded to include solid state drives, and the XPG SX900 SSD is a perfect match for the performance requirements of this elite group. Its maximum sequential read and write speeds are 555/535 MB per second, with maximum random 4k write speeds as high as 91,000 IOPS. With capacities of 64, 128, 256, and 512GB, the XPG SX900 SSD is poised to take its place as a market and performance leader.
Supports Windows TRIM Command, Accelerated Data Transfer Performance
The XPG SX900 SSD adopts specially selected Flash chips from reliable manufacturers, and supports the Windows TRIM command. The Windows TRIM optimization command can directly delete stored data in the Flash memory and release unused space (Free Blocks) to be used for system writes immediately. This results in more accelerated transfer and write performance for solid state drives, and is also effective in slowing down efficiency decline and depletion chances, maintaining effective operation and extending the life of the disk. In both desktop and notebook computers, users will enjoy an unprecedented high-speed experience when they edit video, retouch large picture retouching, and use computer drafting, reading and writing operations.
The SX900 comes in two packaging configurations, to meet your specific needs
Desktop Pack Comes with a 3.5-inch conversion bracket to help you mount the SX900 when you are upgrading a desktop computer, allowing you to immediately enhance the performance and transmission speed of your operating system.
Notebook Pack The SX900 Notebook Pack allows you to easily upgrade your laptop computer with a premium solid state drive, while using the original hard disk as an external drive. To make use of the SX900 as an internal disk drive for your laptop, simply remove the existing hard disk, and install the SX900 into the laptop drive slot. Install the old hard disk in the case provided, and continue to use it as either an external or portable drive. It also comes with a 3.5-inch conversion bracket to help you mount the SX900 when you are upgrading a desktop computer.

A great SSD for under $90. My BSOD problem was very annoying, but once I found the solution, I was very happy with the drive. Windows 7 boots up in 10 seconds (with fast boot turned off), and my overall system is very, very fast. I recommend this drive to anyone who needs a super fast SSD for an affordable price.
Great value! Picked up 2 e $89 each. 530mb read/write Only complaint is you can hear them writing/squeeking, I was under the impression these run whisper quiet. 4 star cause of the noise factor.
I bought this drive with the Vantec 2.5"-3.5" mount for my mid 2007 iMac. I was able to install the drive following some instructions I found online and the iMac booted successfully and I was able to install OS/X Mavericks (10.9). I also downloaded a program called Chameleon SSD Optimizer and it was able to enable trim support in OS/X for the SSD.
For 99$ I don't have any major complaints. While its listed specs may not be real world accurate. It seems to be within 10-20%. This has kind of become expected nowadays with manufacturer specs on components sadly.
Using a Vertex 3 as a boot drive. With this Adata as game storage only. Come to realize there is no going back to mechanical drives for gaming after making the switch. Battlefield 3 load times for Vanilla maps were about 1/3rd of what it took on 2x7200rpm in raid 0.
