👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅04-05-12

Whilst there are obvious performance benefits to upgrading to a 6GB/s SSD many enthusiasts still have qualms with pricing against the conventional hard drive but today’s review subject reveals that this no longer needs to be an issue.

ADATA’s S510 delivers some great performance figures in a variety of benchmarks against some of the popular rivals in the industry. Performance did take a hit during the sequential benchmarks but for the most part, the S510 does allow the casual enthusiast to channel into 6GB/s performance at a much lower cost. The performance trade-off is due to asynchronous NAND. Synchronous offers better performance but costs more to develop.

Priced at under £99inc. VAT, the S510 120GB is a very attractive investment for the multitude wanting to jump onto the SSD bandwagon. For those who have been reluctant due to soaring prices, they needn’t worry – at well under £1 per GB the S510 is a great value for money option.

ADATA have made it possible for SATA 3 6GB/s to be more than affordable, the S510 is a great value for money storage route.
