The ADATA S510 120GB arrives in a traditionally designed box, featuring the ADATA bird logo and drive specifications.
Inside is a 2.5″ to 3.5″ adapter, painted in ADATA colours. There are also some mounting screws and two leaflets, one of which contains the download information for the free OEM version of ACRONIS True Image software.
The ADATA S510 120GB drive is supplied in a black chassis with a blue sticker on front highlighting the specifications and name. The rear of the drive has all the information on the unit, including the serial number for the free copy of the ACRONIS software. We have deliberately blanked out the serial on this drive for security reasons.
The ADATA S510 drive is using Micron 29F64G08CBAAA flash 25nm memory which we have seen used in other drives recently, including the Corsair Force Series 3 drives. The Sandforce 2281 controller can access eight separate NAND channels, and two NAND modules are placed on each channel. The controller is marked as ‘SF-2281VB1-SDC’. ADATA rate this drive with read and write performance at 550 MB/s and 510 MB/s respectively. Sequential read and write is rated at 200 MB/s and 140 MB/s respectively.
