SandForce gives capacity and ADATA gives it to you. The 0 provision revolution has started, but there is more to the Premier Pro than capacity.

Specifications, Pricing and Availability

ADATA recently released three new 2.5" form factor drives and a new mSATA model. Two of the three 2.5" drives are SATA 6Gbps, both with SandForce controllers and new 0 provision programming. The first is the new SX900 with synchronous flash, the new flagship for ADATA. The second in this SATA 6Gbps group is the SP900 that we are looking at today.

 

ADATA currently lists three capacity sizes for the SP900; those are 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. It is going to take me awhile to get used to typing that for sure as 60, 120 and 240 has been programmed in my subconscious for a long time now. Per the specifications sheet, the SP900 uses asynchronous flash. ADATA also does a very good job of listing AS SSD incompressible data performance on the specs sheet. The question is though, why does our drive have Intel 25nm synchronous flash on it? Let's cover some of the other details and work our way back to the flash question in a couple of pages.

 

Newegg lists the new SP900 already, but only the 64GB and 256GB (that we are looking at today) are in stock. The pricing breakdown is as follows, 64GB ($84.99), 128GB ($134.99 but out of stock) and finally 256GB (309.99). For comparison, the flagship SX900 with advertised synchronous flash is listed at 64GB ($109.99), 128GB ($169.99), 256GB ($329.99) and this series also gets a massive 512GB size ($699.99).

 

When it comes to accessories ADATA backs their SP900 with a three year warranty and includes a desktop adapter bracket, data migration software and mounting screws for the hardware. You also receive a paper quick start guide.
