The XPG (Xtreme Performance Gear) SX900 solid state drive is an expanded capacity SSD which uses new optimized firmware to utilize greater storage capacity of the NAND Flash components. With superior NAND Flash, the XPG SX900 SSD reaches new levels of stability and performance. The drive breaks new ground in storage capacity for SSDs utilizing the SandForce 2281 controller, reaching 512GB, a 7% increase over common SSDs in the market that use a SandForce controller. This represents a milestone in ADATA’s history of NAND Flash based products.
Super full capacity with high performance
The XPG (Xtreme Performance Gear) family of products has been expanded to include solid state drives, and the XPG SX900 SSD is a perfect match for the performance requirements of this elite group. Its maximum sequential read and write speeds are 555/535 MB per second, with maximum random 4k write speeds as high as 91,000 IOPS. With capacities of 64, 128, 256, and 512GB, the XPG SX900 SSD is poised to take its place as a market and performance leader.
Supports Windows TRIM Command, Accelerated Data Transfer Performance
The XPG SX900 SSD adopts specially selected Flash chips from reliable manufacturers, and supports the Windows TRIM command. The Windows TRIM optimization command can directly delete stored data in the Flash memory and release unused space (Free Blocks) to be used for system writes immediately. This results in more accelerated transfer and write performance for solid state drives, and is also effective in slowing down efficiency decline and depletion chances, maintaining effective operation and extending the life of the disk. In both desktop and notebook computers, users will enjoy an unprecedented high-speed experience when they edit video, retouch large picture retouching, and use computer drafting, reading and writing operations.
The SX900 comes in two packaging configurations, to meet your specific needs
Desktop Pack Comes with a 3.5-inch conversion bracket to help you mount the SX900 when you are upgrading a desktop computer, allowing you to immediately enhance the performance and transmission speed of your operating system.
Notebook Pack The SX900 Notebook Pack allows you to easily upgrade your laptop computer with a premium solid state drive, while using the original hard disk as an external drive. To make use of the SX900 as an internal disk drive for your laptop, simply remove the existing hard disk, and install the SX900 into the laptop drive slot. Install the old hard disk in the case provided, and continue to use it as either an external or portable drive. It also comes with a 3.5-inch conversion bracket to help you mount the SX900 when you are upgrading a desktop computer.

First drive was DOA, luckily I had another computer in house to verify it was dead, but I lost a whole day trying to make it work. Cloning software would not work on this drive, had to do a fresh install. Last 2 ssd I purchased did not have this problem.
purchased it on 01/27/13, I'm using it for my macbook pro late 2011 because the mechanical hard drive drains my battery when idle. I used a software to clone my macbook pro hard drive and the swap was easy, this hard drive on a 5gb transfer using black magic give me around 550mb/s as advertised! Im kinda impress with this sad, my first and only so far. Hopefully i would buy more when it becomes cheaper and more affordable to students. I purchased it for $169.99 before tax, after tax was roughly around $190 isn. This product is Made In Taiwan so it should be a good brand cause electrons made in taiwan is pretty good quality.
Works faster than my smaller ocz ssd. I did have cloning problems from smaller ocz ssd to this ssd. Never had problems with hdd cloning or from hdd to ssd only from ssd to ssd so not sure if its a problem with ssd's or the programs.
Although I have only owned the unit for a week, this is hands down the best performance related upgrade I have ever done. My intent was to get my 5 year old PC running faster, and this did the trick. I recommend this unit to anyone looking for an immediate increase in performance. The only downfall was the Acronis imaging software would not register correctly, so I ended up having to do a fresh install of Win 7, which was probably for the best anyway. Buy this from NCIX, no place else is cheaper for an SSD this size and this quality. 3 yr warranty on unit, can't lose. Came with the adapter to replace the physically larger original, fit perfectly, even used a spare laptop drive in the same space for backup and storage purposes.
Picked this yesterday and was able to install it with no problems. The Acronis software worked well but you need to download and activate it before you can use it. It is good enough to clone your old drive and will get you going but it is not a full version. Also, take note that this is the 'desktop' version that is on sale so you won't be getting a case/enclosure for you old hdd to use as an external drive. Not a deal breaker but NCIX could do better to clarify this on their website.
I bought this months ago when it was much more expensive. The first one died within a week.. :( but was quickly and easily replaced and Ive had no issues in months! now with it being on sale for $159.99 im considering myself another one.
Been using this for my OS, games and other major applications. No problems so far. When on sale, it's one of the best priced SSDs out there and it's quite fast as well. Would buy again, unless something better comes out.
Just picked this up on a sale and it's a great deal at this price point. It's not the latest and greatest in high tech name brand but none the less it's hard to notice once the lid is shut what you have in there!
I'm happy! This Captcha system to submit a review is brutal though...there's no captcha to enter until I try 3 random times then it spits a number out...
