IP68 Rated/MIL-STD-810G 516.6


MIL-STD-810G:

"MIL-STD-810G is a U.S. military specification that guarantees a level of durability for a piece of technology. Specifically, it means the equipment has gone through a series of 29 tests, including shock tests, vibration tests, and more. This means it should be field ready, or even "combat ready" in principle. A lot of technology sold to the U.S. military must be MIL-STD-810G compliant."

From teardown found here:
https://www.modders-inc.com/adata...-review/3/

It's NVMe with IG5208 and converted to USB. The controller is used DRAM-less so performance will be generally raw controller to Flash. Which won't be too bad though. Quoted from IG5208 page, it's up to 250K/200K IOPS R/W.

I have the SE 740 model of this. My version is slower but overall I like it. I would just say that it can definitely get warmer than my other external SSD's ex. Samsung T5, Sandisk extreme. Although it generally works the same as those.

I hope they found a way to make this model cooler when transferring larger amounts of data.

the coupon has dropped by $5, but because of how the USB spec is engineered, it should be backwards-compatible with any older usb port if you just have a cable adapter that will match the C and whatever the USB port is on a different device.

from the review ccl quotes: "I have various external SSDs and hard drives laying around. However, none are as versatile as the SE800 from ADATA. The Type-C connector gives the SE800 a wide range of devices it can work with, not just PCs. I have eleven devices in my home that the SE800 works on natively that include PCs, laptops, tablets, phones, and cameras. Not to mention the SE800 is also compatible with both the PS4 and XBOX One and XBOX One X. I was even able to install Windows 10 on the SE800 and run the OS off the SE800."

It's not recommended for USB 2.0 usage because of speed, but Xbox one uses 3.0

maybe the IG5208 controller isn't being utilized to full capacity for IOPS (so maybe not good to use as a busy web server while stuck into a computer as its main drive to boot from?) - from that same review:

"With the SE800 at 75% capacity, the threaded mixed IO queue depth test came in at 10431.7 IOPS. With the SE800 empty, it came is at 12365.6 IOPS."
