Companies to avoid: Adata / XPG

Why is that?

 

Also doesn't it come to specific models of SSDs?


... but I'm no expert

The older models where they use the Realtek controllers on the drives are very poor in terms of longevity. Although the newer drives are ok with different controllers, i personally would avoid Adata / XPG and prefer to go with other brands. People tend to look at their 6000 models which are fairly cheaper, but these are the ones with the realtek controllers!

Seems they are using Realtek controllers on some product line still. But not all. 

Bad productlines shoud be avoided...

Crucial made bad SSDs, one died on me (MX100), their BX is not that good. Most SSD makers have some bad product lines.

Agreed! The newer one that i use 8200PRO is good, my S5 failed the very first day, and unfortunately i came across people facing the same issue with one particular realtek controller.

I am disappointed because i am sure Adata is aware of this issue due to the RMA they get with the same issue description, but they continue to sell them still! And where i live, Amazon has disabled the returns policy, where as other SSDs have atleast 10 days replacement. Should have taken this as a clue :D
