How does this compare to Crucial MX500?

Note: This is regular price at Amazon

https://www.amazon.ca/ADATA-Ultimate-Su ... way&sr=8-1
The SU800 uses the same Micron Technology 64L NAND as Crucial MX500 (Micron Technology).
Performance is almost identical.
MX500 5 Yrs Warranty - SU 800 3 Yrs

I would personally get the 1TB Crucial P1 NVME for $139.99.

It has been discussed before. Search for MX500 in previous RFD threads.

Adata suffers from reliability issues.

Google MX500 and SU800. Read a few professional reviews.

Or save many hours of reading and buy the MX500 like Temporel told you. Done!

Like that MX500 has longer warranty and based on research they are pretty good at warranty issues AND has dram.

Based on quick research it seems SU800 uses Silicon Motion SM2258 controller that supports dram but has that been confirmed, that it has dram?

Not bad, but just picked up this one for $20 less. Missing 20GB, I suppose, but still a good value: https://www.canadacomputers.com/product ... _id=130544
ADATA Ultimate SU650 480GB SATA III 6Gb/s Read: 520MB/s; Write: 450MB/s Solid State Drive (ASU650SS-480GT-R)
Why not this one:
https://www.canadacomputers.com/product ... _id=099501
actually only $7 more

lol.

It would be great if we could stop fear mongering about the least failure prone component in your entire computer. ADATA is fine. Crucial is fine. Get whatever is cheapest.

SSDs for the low-end consumer market are just generic parts soldered on to a generic board. If it has a reputable controller (e.g. silicon motion) and DDR ram, it's fine.

Yes. It has 128MB DDR3 SDRAM. It's listed in the technical details on the amazon listing page.

EDIT: the 128MB is for the 120GB model. The 500GB will have 512MB DDR3 cache.

agree. but i got $10 coupon from amazon.ca for no deliver as it promised. so, got the one from crucial (MX500) in amazon instead.
adata (SU800) from canadacomputers is not so bad if you need one for your old pc/laptop.

Noob question here, but my laptop is running out of 128 SSD space. If I buy a 500 or larger, can I just copy the files over to it, or do I have to install the 500 and do a complete windows/application reinstall?
Thanks for your advice!

You will need a cloning software.
