    I'm pretty disappointed with ADATA in the consumer space and definitely wouldn't want to trust anything even remotely "enterprise" to their products just yet. Case in point, I purchased an ADATA SX300 256GB mSATA SSD last year. While the drive does what it is supposed to do, ADATA has not released a firmware update to address the TRIM bug issue. We're still stuck on 5.0.2a. A reviewer on NewEgg also dinged them for not releasing firmware version 5.0.4 back in December. An ADATA rep responded and said we would see an update mid-January. I still don't see an update anywhere. With product support like this, I'm not sure ADATA has earned enough "good faith" points to make it into anything more than an enthusiasts test rig. I just wish companies would consider these sorts of issues where an obvious opportunity exists to show they are better than their competitors.

    Has anyone used a Jmicron controller in the last 2 years? Reply

    I believe Kingston's SSDNow V Series has used the newer controller for a while. It's not super fast, but it's not terrible. Reply
