ADATA Premier Pro SP900 256GB M.2 SSD Review


On the FunkyKit we had a break from ADATA products so it's time to bring back this interesting brand and show some of its products.

respectable performance ; inexpensive ; good performance to price ratio

could be faster in random operations

Even though SP900 256GB M.2 SSD is based on already old LSI SandForce 2281 controller, ADATA improved its firmware and design to provide inexpensive but fully stable drive which is offering good performance. For sure we can find faster drives on our...

ADATA Premier Pro SP900 128GB SSD Review (Raid 0)


Solid State Drives (SSD) used to be a play thing for the wealthy enthusiast user, but prices have dropped so much in the last year that even those people on a strict budget can easily afford one. Adding an SSD to a system for boot and OS duties is one...

Good compressible data performance.

outperformed by some competitor drives.

ADATA Premier Pro SP900 M.2 SATA (256GB)


The affordable, compact, and versatile ADATA Premiere Pro SP900 M.2 SATA solid-state drive (SSD) is built around aging technology, but it's still faster than a spinning hard drive.

Affordable. Speedy SSD for everyday tasks. Two stick lengths available.

Aging core technology. Lagging throughput benchmarks when compared with rivals.

The Premier Pro SP900 has a traditional SATA interface, and the same LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller chip as older SSDs. While this helps compatibility and keeps costs down, it also means that newer SSDs are faster. The drive is limited to the slower...

ADATA Premier Pro SP900 M.2 SATA (256GB) Review and Ratings


The ADATA SP900 M.2, a SandForce-based micro-SSD, is priced affordably, but it exhibits only modest performance for its kind, due to its reliance on older technology.

Affordable, as M.2 drives go ; Available in two M.2 stick lengths ; Generally good performance for everyday tasks

Core technology is old ; Not ideal for extensive use with incompressible data

Fundamentally, the Premier Pro SP900 is an older SSD design that has been recreated for the M.2 form factor. This combination of MLC NAND and the SandForce SF-2281 controller was a big hit years ago, but here in 2015 it's showing its age. We appreciate...

ADATA Premier Pro SP900 256GB SSD Review


Solid state drives are the buzz right now in the consumer storage market, and for good reason. They provide incredibly high speeds over standard hard drives, they take up less space with their 2.5″ form factor, they are silent, run cool, and use...

ADATA Premier Pro SP900 128GB Solid State Drive Review


Final Thoughts When ADATA first sent me this drive I thought to myself wait a minute it is basically the same drive as the ADATA S511 / S510 right?  The only thing that really is different is the type of flash memory that is used and the SP900 has the...

– Good performance, – Comes with adapter and software, – 3 year warranty

– Performance will go down when the drive is full

Good SSD


I have had this ssd since late 2014. i haven't had any problems with it at all. I would buy again, if this one ever dies.

This little thing has been great. read and wrights are blazing fast and the OS boots almost instantly.

Good choice for old laptop


The objective wasn't to go with the fastest or biggest but bring some life back to an again but fully capable laptop. I pulled a 320g mechanical drive from a Dell 1545 and installed this 128g ADATA. WOW! what an improvement It's not the fastest SSD but...

Price and function. It is capable of doing everything I need in a travel laptop used for email and browsing.

None for what it is.

Used several times, great product


I'll continue to buy Adata SP900's as long as they keep making them, great SSD's at a reasonable price with good read/write speeds comparable to a Samsung 850.

- Great cost for performance - 0 failures

None that I can think of.
