That one has a SandForce controller, so I'd stay far far away from it.  Those controllers have notorious reliability issues.  Plus it's old and obsolete technology.

 

My suggestion is to spend a little bit more and get a quality and reliable brand:

Yea I've never heard of ADATA in the SSD market. Would go with one of the bigger players.

Hello,

 

I used one ADATA SSD drive for a server application.  No problems noted, but one single drive doesn't provide a lot of data, good or bad.

 

Regards,

I put in a 128GB SP900 in my Mom's PC. It's quick and has been working fine for several months now. The new Sandforce controllers and firmware seem to be a lot more reliable then the original ones used by OCZ. I also have a Sandforce based Daytona drive in my LAN rig, and a refurbed OCZ Vertex 2 (although the jury is still out on the Vertex, only had it since Christmas - Dad's PC). But truth be told; all of my main machines use either Samsung 830s, 840s, EVOs, or Crucial M4s.
