We have seen a lot of Indilinx Barefoot drives and there are even more on the market. A-DATA has done well in making their latest revision of the S592 stand out from the crowd. This was achieved by using the latest firmware available and making the lightest 2.5 inch form factor SSD we have tested to date.
On the performance front the new firmware is able to give us some performance increases, but it does add some latency to the write cycle. Still, this is a Barefoot drive and the performance to value ratio is very high. I would like to see A-DATA release other firmware options for power users who can make an educated decision on which firmware works best for their needs. Very few companies are doing this so it is not like we are asking for something that is common place in the market at this time.
Speaking of price vs. performance, even buying the 128GB S592 off of a seller on EBay and paying for shipping to the US from Hong Kong or Taiwan, the S592 is right in line with what we see the US e-tailers selling 128GB Indilinx Barefoot controlled drives for. In Asia and Europe where the drives are plentiful, you can buy the drives at a lower cost than what I have seen other Barefoot drives sold for. Newegg does list one A-DATA SSD as being in their inventory and I would really like to see the S592 added as quickly as possible to see how the pricing would stand up to the competition.
The A-DATA S592 is a solid product that performs very well. Users looking to replace traditional platter drives will be amazed at just how fast the S592 really is. I have moved all of my home desktop and work notebooks over to solid state drives and it pains me to work on a computer without an SSD now. You will be just as impressed with the A-DATA S592.
