The 660p doesn't have dram? I remember trying to research but couldn't find it and was impatient.
It has 256MB of DRAM which is largely sufficient.

It has a small DRAM cache and large SLC cache. All the comments on low endurance I'm pretty sure never did the math on how much endurance these drives actually have. Longer than 99% of humans will ever run a computer. I'm pretty close to what I would consider a hardcore techie category and have never pushed a drive close to the limits of the 660P.

I prefer the SX8200/Pro series since the cost difference isn't big, but I am more than pleased with how the 660P performs. I have a LAN room with quite a few different SSD's running from bottom of the barrel ADATA SATA, mid grade 660p or SX8200, and some 970 EVO's and I can honestly say for daily use and gaming, I cannot tell the slightest bit of difference which SSD I am working on. The only times I can tell the difference is when moving many gigs of movie volumes across drives, or massive read/write simultaneously while I am doing things like loading a large game or installing a big program. That 1% of the time then yes, the more expensive NVMe EVO's and SX8200's have a noticeable advantage. Cost wise for a budget build I am very happy with all 3 lower cost options (SX8200 for budget high performance NVMe, 660p mid grade, or these Adata SU800s for lowest budget). I'm not exactly disappointed in the 960/970 EVO's in a couple of the machines but I would rate them as the worst price/performance out of the bunch. All the armchair quarterbacks who try to quote disadvantages of the lower end drives I'm pretty sure don't actually own them or haven't gone through the math of how much NAND endurance has improved. Even "low endurance" QLC has a much longer life than PC's are expected to live unless the person tends to run each PC for over a decade at a time and does tons of large volume transfers everyday. All drives tested to date in any controlled capacity has tended to live WAY past the worst case scenario endurance ratings listed as well, so the true life of the low endurance drives is more likely in the few decades range.

Even one drive would be great for gaming.

My experience is the same and agree completely. I think the dram-less talk got me curious and opted to avoid those drives.

Can't wait for 4tb drives to start ditching hdds even for my file server. Or maybe a few 2tbs hmm.

Waiting for someone to run the endurance tests, until then its all theoretical.

The higher failure rates on cheaper drives may mean the flash is lower grade to begin with.

To those that have RMAed a drive from ADATA, do you get a prepaid label (dying breed, I know) and how are they about proof of purchase.

I know the SU800's are somewhat decent and this is near hitting my price point for 1Tb SSD of 80$. How does this compare to the Crucial MX500?

Great deal this has dropped $35-$50 now more or less depending when you bought and the deal you got.

I wonder how much lower it will go.

Built 2 new PC's over last Dec and spent maybe $200 or so more over today's deals on SSD and DDR4. I have had the use of my new PC's over that time and they have been great so not to salty.

I would say yes. It is a new low price and very good spec for the price.
