A-DATA AS592S-32GM-C 32GB SSD Review

A-DATA has an interesting drive on their hands with the S592 32GB drive. On the one hand it is one of the more mainstream drives with a price of under $100 on Directron. It also outperforms the Intel X25-V mainstream drive nearly across the board, making the choice clear. The main problem with this drive is the limited storage capacity of 32GB. Performance and storage will improve with the addition of a second drive in RAID and performance with two drives is nearly the same as many of the more expensive SSD drives on the market today. At a price of around $200 for two drives this makes for an attractive purchase for those wanting an inexpensive SSD setup while not wanting to shell out the money for more expensive drives. For those wanting more storage space, there are 64GB, 128GB and even 256GB versions of this model online.
