ADATA SP550 240GB SSD Review

Introduction:

ADATA have been pretty actively contributing to the SSD market and recently launch 3 new drives – XPG SX930, which is their performance high-end drive as well as 2 value drives – SP550 and SP560. Both of them use TLC NAND instead MLC NAND. The difference between the SP550 and SP560 seems to be the controller, the SP 500 employs Silicon Motion’s SM2256 controller, where as the SP 560 uses Marvell’s 88SS1074 controller.

Today, we will be looking at the SP550, whose specifications are listed below:
