Unlike the XPG SX930 model I reviewed before that’s geared towards enthusiasts, the ADATA Ultimate SU800 is positioned as an entry-level SSD.
The design of the ADATA Ultimate SU800 is very simple, a black drive with a huge ADATA sticker on top. I’m fine with such, not a person who expects fancy designs for SSDs. What’s important to know is that while the SX930 uses MLC, the SU800 here uses TLC NAND with SLC NAND for cache.
Bottom view, I just feel that I had to say something about it.
Lastly here’s the side view, I have no idea what those holes are for.
Unlike the SX930 that comes with quite some package contents, the ADATA Ultimate SU800 comes only with a padding to increase the height. It doesn’t come with any screws, no 2.5″ to 3.5″ converter or anything. More details at the official product page.
Without further ado, here are the benchmarks are I must say I’m impressed with the ADATA Ultimate SU800.
Great performance aside, ADATA provides a software to monitor the statistics of SSDs regardless of brand.
The ADATA Ultimate SU800 retails at around USD 70 and it is an amazingly speedy entry-level SSD and it comes with 3 years warranty which is quite long when it comes to coverage for computer components. If only ADATA had included some basis accessories for SSD mounting, that’ll make the Ultimate SU800 even more attractive.
