ADATA XPG SX930 240GB and Premier SP550 240GB SSD Review

Introduction Over the course of the last few weeks, a couple of anonymous brown boxes showed up on my doorstep. Festooned with foreign post marks, they set the household atwitter with speculation as to what might be contained within. I’m not sure the rest of the residents appreciated the contents quite as much as I, but for my part, I was ecstatic to open them and find both an XPG SX930 “Gaming SSD” and the more mainstream Premier SP550 from ADATA nestled among the packing material. Before we move on, let’s think about that a bit. Not so very long ago in late 2009, I purchased my first SSD. A 128GB Patriot Torqx SSD that I paid $369 for. Performance was rated at a paltry 260MB/s sequential read and 180MB/s sequential write. TRIM wasn’t implemented on that particular Indilinx Barefoot controller (I’m not sure it was even invented yet), and it ran on a SATA II interface (1.5GBps) of which it was at no risk of saturating. There were no categories in SSD’s. No “Gaming”, “Performance”, “Premium” or any other label. SSD was a self contained category all on its own. (For a bit of historic perspective, you can read Jake’s review of the Patriot Torqx 128GB SSD here). Today, our SATA based SSD’s saturate a 6 Gbps SATA III bus, and an ADATA Premier SP550 costs a mere $79 on Newegg for just about twice the capacity and more than double the performance of my now Vintage Torqx. In those days the d...
