[Canada Computers] ADATA SX8200 480GB M.2 SSD $160

ADATA SX8200 480GB M.2 SSD is really good price vs performance SSD. The reviews for the performance are very good.

Edited: Price went back up from $150 to $160 at Canada Computers. Currently $187 on Amazon and $220 at Newegg.ca (at the time of this writing).

- Micron 64-layer 3D NAND
- PCIe NVMe 1.3 Qualified Gen3x4
- Form Factor: M.2 2280
- Read/Write Speed up to 3200/1700 MB/s (Performance may vary based on system hardware & configuration)

Reviews:

https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/8639/ ... dex10.html
"The SX8200 boots as fast or faster than any flash-based SSD we've tested to date, multitasks with ease, and never lags no matter what you throw at it. A true Tier-1 SSD experience. We are pleasantly surprised by the total package that is the SX8200. Like we stated earlier, it is our new lab favorite. ADATA's SX8200 is TweakTown recommended and Editors Choice awarded."

"During heavy workloads, the over-provisioning gives you higher performance than the 760p and EX920. Under heavier workloads you get better performance than the 970 EVO, but less than the 970 Pro."

"The ADATA XPG SX8200 is one of the top value NVMe SSDs we have tested to date. With 3.2GB/s read and 1.7GB/s write on tap as well as high endurance numbers and a 5 year warranty backing it, you can't go wrong buying one."

I always hear "friends don't let friends buy ADATA..." but I'm debating if I really need friends.

Need an M.2 NVME too, and 500gb 970 EVO is $100 more. Can anyone explain the major differences?

Where can I find reliable endurance tests on this model? ADATA has burned bridges with it's poor products in the past.

It looks like this drive uses the same NAND as other drives on the market including the HP drive you created a thread about yesterday. It should be very reliable. It uses quality NAND.

*edit* Your HP drive I believe uses Crucial NAND. This drive uses Intel NAND. Both are great.

I've had 2 Adata m.2 ssd's die in less than a year. Sure the first one was covered under warranty but I had to pay to send it insured to California, which was nearly $35 and they took a couple of months to replace it. After the second failure, I bought a Transcend m.2 to replace it and it has been fine, as has been the slow Sandisk m.2 that I originally had. It's the controller that goes on them, not the memory, FYI.

Exactly, and ADATA always finds a way to cut costs.

Price drop to $150.

Seems like all SSD prices are dropping. Might be better to wait if you can.

Nand prices are crashing and there is real competition for Samsung's NVMe drives. So yeah, SSD prices are going down.

It's hard to say. I keep thinking the prices have bottomed out and then they drop lower. It looks like NVMe prices are poised to drop some more. But at $150 this drive is a really good deal and it would blow the mx500 out of the water, so long as your m.2 slot supports NVMe.
