$75/US 480GB ADATA Ultimate SU650 2.5" SSD

ADATA is apparently the cookie-cutter among SDD technologies: They
combine all the available controllers and NAND. Not sure how long
this one has been on their back-burner, in superceding the SU800
series, although for ADATA it is rather peculiar: On all their drives
ADATA provides the usual utilities, whereas this one is comes
bare-boned, the one exception being a link to one of the major
commercial, sometimes or variously offered if not baited freeware,
cloning utilities. It may be jugular competitive economics,
especially with a severity seen for potential disruption from Trump's
fist in the face of tariffs. Or not. ADATA site appears pointedly to
overlook all but newer 3D NAND, when mentioning SLC caching
purposefully then to not identify the remaining bulk, in whether
stacking from TLC or MLC. Hours averaged over lifespan or a three
year warranty can of course be based on an average profits derived
from any likelihood average usage will come remotely near to exceeding
three years;- As well employing facades erected to prevent later
accountability in all but the most nefariously and already known or
short of a class-action lawsuit.

I've tended to regard to ADATA offhand as a middle of the road name, a
value representative from a decisive market demography of users. The
recentness of the drive may reflect that at a later point with more
research and ratings. As it is the same major distribution outlet
listed two 500G drives simultaneously: A Crucial -- as stated and
equipped with 3D TLC NAND -- for a sixth more cost than the ADATA 650

Averaging for approaching near to $15 a 120GB SDD at some higher

I might expect it of other brandnames, although this is my first
encounter with ADATA's deliberate omission from the specs. I even
went, on my time, to their website for the specifications download for
that little bit of nothingness between the dross and gloss of
advertising. Sweet. I guess that means an insider needs go
rumorously "transparent", if not one of the review drives ANAND will
submit to ANAND Tech or Tom's Hardware, which they'll pry open with a
razor bland to ID chip nomenclature to provide users with what they
did, or didn't, buy.

Performance matrixes did exceed the former SU800 model line, which may
be MLC despite middling reviews prior.
