What am i missing?
Why would someone prefer this WD Blue drive vs a Adata SU800 (or SU760) which are almost the same price, faster, and have better reliability?
Thanks.

Good question, SDGempler.
Short answer: b/c many ppl don't know that the different colors mean different qualities. Had an SU800 SSD 1TB fail just before its warranty ended (thankfully before not just after, which seems the usual Murphy's Law).
However, overall, happy with ADATA SU series.

3 year warranty vs 5 year warranty could be missing

Are these still pretty much plug n play? Just some formatting after boot up?

Really? You buy SSDs without doing any research at all?

That site needs temperature comparison. Heat is a factor in early failure.

Deciding a SSD for a notebook/ultrabook is completely different from deciding a SSD for a desktop setup with high air flow.

Let's just say Adata is 3rd tier. WD is a shoulder behind Samsung.

This or the Samsung Qvo inside a ps4? I'm looking to upgrade the Pro.

This drive supports Deterministic read ZEROs after TRIM (DRAT) for those interested. While this won't be useful to the majority of home users, it is beneficial for those trying to run these off a LSI 2008 based HBA (common in unRAID and FreeNAS builds). Since this supports DRAT, you will be able to run trim commands when connected to the HBA. I am using a pair of these as a VM Pool in RAID 1 connected to a LSI 2008 based card and trim works great due to DRAT support. Add in the 5 year warranty and you have a nice cache, pool or unassigned device drive for unRAID.

I would NEVER buy an SSD with a 3 year warranty, no matter how fast it is. That shows that ADATA really isn't confident in the drive's longevity. If you want better performance, spend a little more for a drive with comparable specs and a longer warranty.

If you don't really care about small performance gains and just want something faster than an HDD (like me) then this WD blue drive with a 5 yr warranty is a fine deal.

Would you say Kingston is 2nd tier?
For memory, Kingston should be 1st but don't know if that is true for SSDs.
Just bought a Kingston SSD for $55 which is a tad cheaper than this WD.

Kingston is 3rd tier. We're talking about SSD. Don't mix it with RAM.

The 2nd tier is Toshiba, WD/SanDisk, Micron/Crucial, and any name brand that makes its own NAND flash.

The top tier is Intel and Samsung.
