ADATA XPG SX300 128GB mSATA Solid State Drive Review

The ADATA XPG SX300 128GB mSATA ships in a tiny little package with the product highlighted behind a clear plastic window at the bottom.

After we remove the ADATA sticker we can see the LSi Sandforce 2281 controller, marked “SF-2281VB1-SDC”.

Above, the 2.5 inch Aleratec MiniPCIe mSATA to SATA SSD Adapter with the ADATA XPG SX300 128GB mSATA drive in place.

Testing mSATA drives today on an ATX motherboard is not ideal, as many of them currently limit the mSATA port to 3.0Gbps speeds. We want to the test the raw performance of the drive, not the port so we have adopted the Aleratec MiniPCIe mSATA to SATA SSD Adapter.

For those interested, this Aleratec adapter can be picked up from Amazon for only £16.

    My dell laptop has one of these ports, im tempted to buy one, move out my 2.5 inch SSD in it – use that in my desktop. and then add a 1TB 2.5 inch drive to my laptop.

    Win all round!

    Slightly disappointed in the cost of these right now, it makes it hard to justify a purchase, even if the motherboard supports it.
