Q. visitor asked, That's good. But to be honest, I don't need every drop of power such as yourself lol. I just want a nice workstation for web development/design, web browsing, and maybe some Minecrat. Minecraft<b></b>. Exactly. Now, is it true that larger capacity SSDs perform better?

Allen L.
Hey there! I see you're looking at one of ADATA's 120GB SSD drives :-)
Yes sir. Tell me your opinion on the ADATA brand.
Allen L.
I've used ADATA in the past for various laptops and I haven't had any real issues.
The performance is good and I've bought adapters and other products from ADATA as well and I've been pleased
I recently started using Samsung SSDs however though, due to the 5 and 10 year warranty
Understandable. To be honest, I don't worry about SSD warranties because the chances of anything happening to a non-mechanical part such as an SSD seems very slim
I mean sure, they still have a life expectancy.
Allen L.
Indeed, but it's so far out of the way that the lifetime of the SSD outlasts the parts :-)
But I don't expect failure for the first 3 years. Not at all.
Allen L.
I hear ya. The only qualm I really have with ADATA is that the software they have is kind of mediocre, but the price is good.
I currently use a Samsung 850 EVO 250gb myself on my main desktop, the performance has been stunning so far, especially with the disk cloning
I still use ADATA in my work laptop however
That's good. But to be honest, I don't need every drop of power such as yourself lol. I just want a nice workstation for web development/design, web browsing, and maybe some Minecrat

ADATA is a good brand for having a quick SSD for a good price
Exactly. Now, is it true that larger capacity SSDs perform better?
Allen L.
Indeed. Larger capacity SSDs have more NAND chips that lower capacity.
*than
More capacity = more memory controllers. More memory controllers = more simultaneous read and writes :-)
So, for the best price and performance, the ADATA 480GB would be a viable option?
Allen L.
Indeed it would be. For the price compared to counterparts, the size and the speed cannot be rivaled :-)
Awesome. Thanks for your insight. :-)
Allen L.
Not a problem! I'm happy to help
