The ADATA S511 240GB produced a nice read performance graph with very little variation in the performance across the drive. We achieved an average read speed of just over 413MB/s, a score that nearly matched the fastest drive on our charts.

The S511 240GB also performed very well in the HD Tune Pro Write Test. The performance had a few peaks and valleys, but the average score was 406MB/s with a peak of 436.7. The low point measured was 395MB/s which is still very fast even for a SandForce SF-2281 controlled drive.
