The dram cache on this will make it a quicker drive vs the sn550 that uses HMB (system ram)

Unless you're trying to stick it in an ultrabook with minimal clearance, this is a better drive. Whether most users will actually notice a difference between the drives is another story altogether.

I have both in different systems, passed my SN550 1TB down to my gf. SN550 feels like using a S10 and this is like a S20. You notice the difference after using both for a while, for $10 difference I'd do it.

The S11 Pro is a better drive, this isn't even a price thing. The Controller on the S50 Lite is a cut down version of the one of the S11 Pro but running on a PCIe 4 bus. It's not really powerful enough to take advantage of the PCIe 4 bus. It does have good peak speeds (looks good on paper) but the rest of the drive does not perform well and peak speeds is a bad metric for consumer use anyways.

Thanks op, nice deal but for me ADATA is banned forever. When you use hundreds of SSD and failure rate reach more than 10% after 1 year, not normal. Recently it has been proved that ADATA swap hardware without notice, and send better quality hardware to reviewers.

If your data is important, choose another brand

I have 2 S11 Pro (2TB and 1TB), so far great drives. Included heatsink is a nice bonus, temps are definitly lower than my SN750 without one.

With Adata, I judge it on a drive by drive basis. They're just a reseller anyways, they slap their label on a drive and ship it out. Some of their products are garbage, some are solid, it just depends on which drives they're buying at any given time.

To this specific drive, the hardware swap is VERY overblown. The actual controller is basically the same, it's just a different caching profile. Companies change controllers and NAND all the time as well, it isn't just Adata. From a performance standpoint, it's wrong for TH to call this drive slower, it's just different, it behaves very similarly to the original SX8200. It's not hard to show the new revision beating the older revision if you know what to test for while we're at it. Regardless, most consumers who buy these drives wouldn't be able to tell the difference. For consumer use, the differences are negligible and both are crap for professional use anyways.
