Any way to use this with a pi?
Yes, if you use a Pi 3 or 3b+. You need a usb sata adapter. Write the latest raspbian or in my case, retropie using etcher and the pi should boot from it fine.

I've had one of these Adata SSD drives in my desktop as the OS drive. It's been working like a champ for almost 3 years.

**Unfortunately Amazon says 100% of these have been claimed. Frown OOS (or ask to be put on waitlist)

The question that I have is .. are these "good enough" to buy???

After multiple Samsung Evo purchases looking for an inexpensive alternative. The Evos are great but pricey. I have only purchased one Adata item and it SUCKED ... a 32 GB thumbdrive with glacial transfer rates.

Are these good enough???
I bought one of these three years ago and still working. (See previous comment of mine)

Actually, a 120gb. A SSD needs some space to move around files. If you pack a SSD with files, it is likely to fail prematurely.
Please, cite a reputable source for this claim.

Jeez... I remember when 120gb under $100 was a SD. $18 is great but too small as larger drives have come down in price

Just Google it, it's all over the place. Packing an SSD >70% it's capacity is asking for it. https://www.howtogeek.com/165472/...te-drives/

Been hesitant to pull the trigger on a SSD as my main os and using my 2tb HDD for storage. How would this fair for a first timer? I've seen this deal a couple times and am thinking it's time lmao
They will probably sell the remaining inventory to Nigeria before it gets below $18.

If anyone is looking at the 480GB size, there is a staples 30 off 60 you can buy on eBay and buy the MX500 on staples for almost the same price.

Wow price on SSD is dropping faster than RAM. I was able to pick up the ADATA 240 last week for under $20 from a similar Amazon lighting deal.

This failed on me just yesterday, only few months old.
Don't buy it as your primary drive. I am working on restoring files as we speak.

The premise behind SSDs wearing out faster stems from the data being overwritten and how the controller decides were to put new data. Flash cells wear out eventually after enough repeated read/write cycles so let's say you have a 120 gig SSD and you're using 100 gig of it for your OS and programs. That only leaves 20 gigs for things that get temporarily stored. If you frequently write/erase that sector over and over again, then the chances of storage failing increases, but only in the particular sector. However, most modern SSDs don't really have that issue anymore since bad sectors can be ignored for use and your SSD will still function relatively well. Worst comes to worse, your SSD will lose a bit of capacity due to an increase in bad sectors, however performance is hardly affected and those bad sectors typically wouldn't result in catastrophic whole drive failure.
