Review of Adata S599 128gb Ssd

With almost ten times the price of a normal hard drive, the ADATA s599 SSD is definitely designed for new users. The performance advantages of SSD technology are currently more in terms of access time and search than in terms of actual speed. However, the ADATA S599 is also lighter, quieter and more energy efficient.


DETAILED review of the SSD-ADATA s599 128 GB

Even though breakthroughs in magnetic recording are pushing hard drive storage to the outside, it’s sad that hard drive speeds haven’t changed as much as their capabilities. Now we have even larger media files, games and documents, but we have not yet reached the point where several gigabytes of photos are opened at once, and games take place from one level to another without any problems. Or did we do it?

FEATURE

We tested a 128GB version of ADATA’s s599 solid state drive, which is still at the upper end of the spectrum for an SSD. The drive is available with capacities of 40 GB, 64 GB, 100 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB, as well as all other similar functions.The SSD has a maximum read speed of 280 MB / s and a maximum write speed of 270 MB / s, which pushes the SATA II interface used to its limits.

Since the ADATA S599 is an SSD, and therefore there are no complicated moving parts arranged, it is quiet and consumes less power than your regular hard drive. In addition, it is lighter-only 68 grams less than an average smartphone-and to a much greater extent shockproof. All this, combined with the fact that it has a 2.5-inch form factor, makes it a godsend for laptop users. Desktop users are also not left out, since the ADATA S599 is equipped with convenient support from 2.5″ to 3.5″.

Without disks for bodily moving and reading data by accessing data from random places on an SDD, it takes much less time than on a conventional hard drive. The ADATA S599 gave us access times in microseconds as opposed to the usual millisecond timings on hard drives.

PERFORMANCE

Testing the SSD was a challenge in itself, because our real test involves the usual task of copying files to and from the drive. To test the SSD, the other drive should definitely be faster. We decided to use a RAM drive, a virtual drive that uses your RAM as storage. Such training gives exceptional speeds and should remain unchallenged for some time.

In our tests, the ADATA S599 performed very well, reaching write speeds of up to 180 MB/s, but on average about 110 MB/s. Note that at such speeds you can copy an entire DVD to your hard drive in less than a minute, and a 50 GB BluRay in less than 10 minutes! With a capacity of 128 GB, you probably will not do this. Even more impressive were the read speeds with an average of 180 MB / s and a peak of over 200 MB / s.

Are these speeds impressive? Compared to a desktop PC with two WD Green edition hard drives in RAID0 (interlacing) with a standard Intel controller integrated into the motherboard, we achieved higher write speeds on average (~140 MB / s) and slightly lower read speeds on average (~150 MB / s).
