ADATA has several 2.5" SATA III SSDs on the market. The product line reminds me of what OCZ Technology tried to do before going belly-up. The problem with so many products is customers don't know the difference between one product and the other. I work with SSDs every day and couldn't tell you why one drive would perform better than another without research. Luckily, I own nearly every drive on this list, short of the Server SX1000L. If I didn't have the drives I wouldn't know what was faster, what was slow, what had lower performance with incompressible data, and what works best with each application.
Since I do know these things, I have to wonder where ADATA come up with this list. The SP610 with a Silicon Motion 2246EN controller should be slower than the SP910 we tested today, going by ADATA's product naming scheme. The truth is, the SP610 is faster in some tests, and it's a better rounded SSD for consumer use.
In our testing, the SP920 performed really well with the higher capacity models. The SP920 512GB walks all over the SP910 512GB. That's most likely why the SP920 is readily available, and the SP910 is an unseen ghost when shopping for new 512GB SSDs.

The Bottom Line: Limited availability and poor performance mean you should look for something else when shopping for a new SSD. The SP920 has better performance at a lower price when you can find it.
