Since every SSD is compared to the Samsung Evo, here is the userbench comparison:

Samsung 850 Evo 500GB vs Adata Ultimate SU800 512GB [userbenchmark.com]
Userbenchmark Effective SSD Speed: 95.2% vs 73.6%
Samsung 850 Evo 500GB [userbenchmark.com] - 78th / 885
Adata Ultimate SU800 512GB [userbenchmark.com] - 292nd / 885

At this price, I'm close to jumping on this. However, I will probably wait a bit longer to see if the 850s drop to this price level now that the 860s have been released.

Seems like a slick deal. Why wouldn't I go with this? Product brand?

If you're smart enough to be here you're capable enough to do the research. Someone will try to talk you out of it-- and some will vouch. Specwise and brand wise it's a winner

It uses TLC for those that care. I might get it since I need something bigger than 480, but I a, debating if I should wait to try and save another $20. I was hoping 512gb would drop to $100 this year.

I would wait based on brand and price. Further more, if yoi have an NVMe slot, I would pay a little higher premium for better performance.

Actually, 480gb for less than $120 US is amazing. Delighted to see the prices dropping again. Prices were similar for 240gb in recent price history. Big TU!

I've installed 2 Adata brand ssd's in the 120gb size with zero issues, no failures: one in 2016 and one in 2017.

The difference in speed between this brand and the Evo isn't noticable to the everyday human.

Nice price. However, I am on the EVO price drop bandwagon. It feels like I pass up on every SSD deal waiting for something better or cheaper...I'm in an endless SSD loop.

Why? Most of the difference between SATA and NVME is on paper and when moving files, not actually performance a user is going to notice. This reality vs specs often makes the purchase unnecessary for most people.

Don't you think it's worth asking how he uses his computer before making a recommendation?

Evos are nice drives but the vast majority of users will not be able to tell the difference, in everyday use, between an Evo and this sata or this NVME:

Honestly as a person whos been in the technology field for quite a long time, I can vouch most users, even advanced users wont be able to tell the difference between this and a samsung drive. Unless your staring very closely at loading bars in triple AAA titles. I just got the 480 from yesterday deciding if i really need the extra space for $20 more....
