ADATA Premier SP550 120GB SATA 6Gb/s ASP550SS3-120GM-C Review

Key features

The ADATA Premier SP550 120GB SATA 6Gb/s ASP550SS3-120GM-C comes with TLC flash and an SMI controller. It allows you to upgrade your computer in an affordable manner without compromising on performance. It has a range of features including LDPC ECC Engine (Low Density Parity Check ECC), data shaping and RAID engine. It is a premier product that maintains high stability and offers you complete data integrity. The durability of the SSD is provided by the ultra-high TBW (Total Bytes Written). It also supports DDR3 DRAM Cache Buffer and SLC Caching, resulting in dramatically improved read and write speeds.

Introduction

ADATA has launched the ADATA Premier SP550 120GB SATA 6Gb/s ASP550SS3-120GM-C, an affordable Solid State Drive for the budget conscious customers. The interface speed of this SSD is 6.0Gbps and it is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. One of the most important features of this SSD is that it supports RAID and is as well RoHS compliant. This SSD can operate between the temperature range : from 0°C to 70°C while its storage temperate from -40°C and 85°C. The ADATA SSD installation is fairly easy and you only need to follow the instructions in the user manual. ADATA has launched the ADATA Premier SP550 120GB SATA 6Gb/s ASP550SS3-120GM-C that performs comparably as per as maximum read speed and random write speed is concerned. However, the maximum write speed and the random read speed of the SSD need improvement as compared with the other standard 120Gb SSDs. Among the important features in this SSD are inbuilt hardware error checking and data prioritization. It is also able to work by consuming less power and gives you the added benefits of improved stability, plus an extended service life. It lessens the time taken to boot your PC, opening large files and running complex applications at the same time. Its high TBW ensures that it can write more number of times in its lifespan and has a better performance than its competitors. The ADATA SSD warranty is limited in nature and is for 3 years.

What is the overall performance ?

The ADATA Premier SP550 120GB SATA 6Gb/s ASP550SS3-120GM-C has a maximum read speed of 560 Mbps, 3.7% faster than the standard 120Gb SSDs. It also has a maximum write speed of 410 Mbps ; here it falls 9.9% lower compared to the standard 120Gb SSDs. The random read and write speeds of this SSD are 60,000 IOPS and 70,000 IOPS respectively. The random read and write speeds are 18% and almost equal to standard 120Gb SSDs respectively. It is evident that there is room for improvement as far as this ADATA SSD quality is concerned.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

The ADATA Premier SP550 120GB SATA 6Gb/s ASP550SS3-120GM-C, while it is one of the latest SSDs launched by the company, is not the best SSD available in the market, especially if you are looking at high intensity performance. However, it is more than good enough for home computers and it is able to provide you with optimum performance.

  • The Good :
    Fast performance, affordable and small form factor
  • The Bad :
    Slower maximum write speed and slower random read and write speeds
Our score:
4 / 5
