Just when we thought our run of Indilinx Barefoot SSDs was over, one last drive popped up. A few months ago A-DATA announced in a press release that the S592, an Indilinx Barefoot controlled drive, would be made available with full Windows 7 TRIM support and come from their factory with a new firmware update. For a short time the S592 was on the market with older non-TRIM firmware, but those days have passed.
I was unable to find the A-DATA S592 listed for sale at any of the US e-tailers that we normally check, but did find it all over Europe and Asia. A few sellers even list drives for sale on EBay USA. It looks like you are going to have to spend around 435 USD to get a 128GB drive like the one we are testing today. The EU and APAC regions will pay less since the shipping costs are greatly reduced.
I can't begin to count the number of Indilinx Barefoot drives we have tested this past couple of years, but when it comes to buying a low cost, high performance drive with a lot of capacity, the Barefoot controlled SSDs come out on top every time. Not long ago we spoke with a representative from Indilinx and were told that the new Jetstream controller with SATA 6G was delayed until early Q2 2010. Because of this I think more companies will look to refresh the Barefoot controller and rehash it under new model names, like what we found in the G.Skill Falcon II. SATA 6G buyers are just going to have to wait a little longer.
A-DATA has long been known for making high quality products that are sold at a great price. In the US it is sometimes difficult to find A-DATA products, but from time to time they tip up at the big e-tail stores. Newegg carries a lot of A-DATA products, but only lists the X25-M SSD, an A-DATA branded Intel X25-M 80GB drive, as being in stock at this time.
