The ATTO benchmark basically uses highly compressible data to stream to the disk. Since Sandforce controllers compress data before writing it to flash, this is basically a best case benchmark. The badness is that those advertised figures are really only applicable in synthetic tests, or more specifically, A synthetic test ATTO. Clearly ADATA S599 is used in promotional materials because of the highly compressible data that it writes. In fact it is likely to run out in a relatively short amount of time unless the drive controller doesn't intelligently ensure than the number of writes are minimized.


Hence an intelligent controller is present in SSD drives that ensures that no single area ADATA S599 the drive gets written to more than any other a process called wear-leveling. This is especially important in context of OS and filesystem tendencies to update logs, journals and file allocation table, causing those areas to get written to more often than others, and thus wear out sooner. Since SSDs make or break without their controller it is quite important which one is used. Where the SSD wins is in its much faster random access times. Calling up any data on the SSD takes an equal amount of time irrespective of where it is located and what part was previously being read.

ADATA S599 64GB Sandforce SSD SATA II 2.5″ Review

This makes fragmentation a non-issue on SSDs and makes defragamenting an SSD drive nearly pointless, and in fact harmful to ADATA S599 drive due to a limited number of writes. SandForce uses a number of innovative tricks and techniques in their controllers that manages to increase the life of the SSD.

It manages to give the SSD a 5-year life, which might not bring it up to par with HDDs, but at least makes it feasible. This also makes launching applications and booting an ADATA S599 much faster.

With Windows 7 installed on the SSD, we installed a number of common applications, and here are some results: WinRAR 4. Its the perfect device for corporate-level computing applications as well as power users who seek super speed. IOmeter test: Integrity and safety of user ADATA S599 stored on the S SSD is excellent. The S's static wear-leveling technology can average out the write cycles on each cell over time, thereby eliminating frequent writes to the same flash cell and extending its serviceable ADATA S599.

Notebook Pack: The ADATA S Notebook Pack allows you to easily upgrade your laptop computer with a premium solid state drive, while using the original hard disk as an external drive. To make use of the S as an internal disk drive for your laptop, simply remove the existing hard disk, and install the S into ADATA S599 laptop drive slot.

We test the ADATA S GB SSD. ADATA release their S series of Solid State Disks which are armed with that all new SandForce. A-DATA's S GB SSD uses the well-established ADATA S599 SF controller.

This results in a high-performance solution - actually it is.
