In the notebook battery life test, the SP920 did a bit better than the M550. The Crucial M500 still delivers the best battery life in the 1TB capacity size class of products, but it's a bit slower than the SP920 in all of the performance tests.
This review feels like dejà vu from a week ago...right around the time we wrote the M550 1TB. The SP920 and the M550 are nearly identical, but that's not a bad thing for the ADATA SP920 or you. Both drives are very good, but ADATA picked up the slack where Crucial fell short.
For the same price, ADATA managed to include a desktop adapter bracket and a SSD Toolkit. It might not seem like much, but when you need either, the extra expenses can add up quickly.
When it comes to performance, the SP920 brings ADATA back into the performance tier. This isn't another mainstream drive with performance matched by a large number of products. At this time, very few drives make up the upper tier, but the SP920 1TB is one of them.
The same can't be said about the other capacity sizes in the SP920 series. The 128Gb die means just eight die make up the 128GB drive, and performance suffers because of this Crucial got around this issue by manufacturing 20nm 64Gb die flash for the 128GB and 256GB M550. We'll talk more about this in the reviews of the 128GB and 256GB SP920.
The Premier Pro SP920 1TB is just about as perfect as it gets. The price is comparable with other 1TB class drives on the market, but the accessory package is superior.
