ADATA SX300 mSATA SSD (256GB) Review

Over the past few weeks we have looked at a number of storage solutions from traditional mechanical drives, SSDs and docks, to USB storage and beyond. One of the more interesting, or unique devices in that batch of reviews was the Zotac RAIDBOX which allowed us to install two of our own mSATA SSDs and then combine them for a larger capacity, data protection or maximum speed in RAID 0. The performance of that drive was impressive and in part that was down to the drives inside, two ADATA mSATA SSDs.

Today we take a look at ADATAs SX300 mSATA SSD, the 256GB model and will find out how it compares to a desktop SSD as well as a competing mSATA model.

Packaging and Bundle

ADATA package the SX300 in a compact cardboard box and we can see the drive through a window on the front which is a nice touch. As mSATA drives don’t require any cables or specific software there are no bundled items however ADATA do offer a trial of Norton and for firmware updates provide a software download from their website. To get the latest fixes/enhancements we just download this tool, select our drive and flash. A reboot later and we are back up and running again.
