Over the past year ADATA has released a number of different solid state drives aimed at different market segments. Not that long ago we took a look at ADATA’s XPG SX930 which was aimed at gamers and enthusiasts. Today we will be taking a look at the Premier SP550 which sits as ADATA’s entry-level solid state drive aimed at people who are looking to upgrade to an SSD and still want very good performance. The drive features the Silicon Motion SM2256 controller matched with SK Hynix TLC NAND. This is the first time we’ve seen this combination together. The 240GB version of the drive that we are reviewing today boasts sequential read and write speeds of 560 MB/s and 510 MB/s respectively. Let’s get this drive on our test bench and see what it can do!
ADATA offers a wide variety of solid state drives from consumer drives to enterprise and server drives. ADATA’s last XPG drive was introduced in 2012, so the line was definitely in need of a refresh. The XPG line is targeted towards gamers and enthusiasts. The new XPG SX930 features the newer JMicron JMF670H controller matched with synchronous MLC NAND. The 240GB version that we are reviewing today features sequential read and write speeds of 560 MB/s and 460 MB/s respectively. ADATA is backing this drive with a 5-year warranty and has changed the design a little to attract more gamers. Let’s take a look at this drive and see what it is all about!
This puts the 256GB version of ADATA’s Premier SP610 that we are reviewing today at $84.99 at our favorite online retailer. At this price it makes this SSD a perfect low-cost choice for an OS or game drive. ADATA is making use of the Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller that we saw on the Mushkin Reactor and the Crucial BX100. The 256GB version of the drive boasts sequential read and write speeds of 560 MB/s and 290 MB/s respectively. Let’s get this drive on the test bench and see what it can do!
