ADATA S510 120GB Solid State Drive Review

Review Score:
20 Flares 20 Flares ×

Today we are looking at a new solid state drive from ADATA – the S510 120GB. This drive is being marketed as their ‘budget friendly’ offering, with a UK retail price of only £119.99 inc vat, available on pre-order from Overclockers UK. It is based around the excellent Sandforce SF 2281 series controller with rated speeds of up to 550 MB/s read and 510 MB/s write. Should this be making your shortlist for a new drive?

ADATA might not be seen as a big player in the SSD market, but they have been prominent in the enterprise memory sector now for many years. Their S511 series has been reviewed before at Kitguru and was one of the performance leaders for many months and the S510 is set to target a more budget conscious audience.

The 120GB S510 is £40 cheaper than the 120GB S511, so the savings are noticeable.

Specifications:

  • Capacity: 120GB
  • Read: Up to 550MB/S
  • Write: Up to 510MB/S
  • Seq Read: Up to 200MB/S
  • Seq Write: Up to 140MB/S
  • 4K Random Write (Aligned): 60,000 IOPS
  • Maximum 4K Random Write: 85,000 IOPS
  • Sandforce SF-2281

    Seems good value, especially with HDD prices, although im hoping a 1TB is back to £50 by February.

    Good deal, but as someone else said, ADATA are hard to get in UK, took them ages to stock the 510 after KG reviewed it.
