Hello, A-Data S511. What's that? You can read and write at over 500 MB/s? Why, that's quicker than a spelling bee champion on MDMA. In fact, in both synthetic and real-world benchmarks, this solid state drive (SSD) is quicker than OCZ's similarly SandForce 2281-controlled OCZ Vertex 3. The SandForce 2200-Series controller is at the same time a light-bringer and harbinger of doom.The read/write speeds it offers are staggering, and verge dangerously near the SATA 3 port's maximum throughput of 600 MB/s. Not only does the SSD deliver great performance to you in PC user land, it puts pressure on manufacturers to deliver a faster, better interface.That performance and promise is laced with unreliability, underperformance and – at worst – data loss. Corsair and OCZ were left red-faced after being forced to recall their Force 3 series and Vertex 3 SSDs, respectively. It all stinks a bit of Intel's B3 revision fiasco, and has probably put some enthusiasts off the SandForce 2200 series permanently.Which is a shame. Now the controller issue's been identified and remedied via firmware and hardware revisions, we can once again focus on that jaw-dropping performance. And since the OCZ Vertex 3 has been the pace setter for all SSDs until now, the A-Data S511's performances are sure to raise some eyebrows.
