A-DATA AS592S-32GM-C 32GB SSD Review :: Test Setup and Performance

By Benjamin Sun

Performance on a single A-DATA 32GB SSD drive should be among the lowest of the drives tested for a simple reason that this drive is now over a year old with newer faster drives out on the market with bigger capacities. Balancing this is the fact that the drive is under $100 online, meaning that the A-DATA 32GB drive is one of the more mainstream drives on the market in terms of price. The other drives except for the Intel X25-V SSD drive are all over $200 online and not a fair comparison. The A-DATA drive outperforms the Intel drive nearly across the board in all tests.
