A-DATA S599 SSD RAID Report - SandForce SF-1200 x2 - Specifications, Pricing and Availability

Specifications, Pricing and Availability




The specs haven't changed since we first reviewed the A-DATA S599 last month and neither has the availability. I have yet to be able to find the drives listed for sale in my home country and this is a big surprise since they were scheduled to hit a week or so after the review went live. Maybe the volcano had something to do with it, or maybe we were all just fed another round of marketing hype. I will let you decide. Without retail availability we can't verify the 380 USD MSRP claim or how retailers have used this suggested price in coming up with a dollar figure to offer the S599 at.


In knowing how well OCZ has been treated by SandForce, I really wouldn't be surprised if there isn't some sort of push to keep additional drives off the market until the Limited Edition OCZ drives sell out or the stock numbers get to a point where there is a glimpse of the bottom of the pallet holding them all. Of course, this is speculation, but with so many companies saying they have retail ready SF-1200 products and Newegg only listing two SKUs, both from OCZ and both limited edition, it is easy to start connecting the dots and start to think conspiracy.


I should go on to add that this is not even a rumor and there are no facts to back such a claim up, but you have to wonder why Newegg only has OCZ SandForce stock when there are a limited number of Corsair Force drives on the market and we were at one time told A-DATA would be all over the place in hardly any time at all.


Anyhow, let's get to testing!
