The SU800 is an awesome SSD. Probably the best budget SSD out there. Affordable, reliable and fast.

While this SSD, ADATA SU800 1TB could be faster, it is extremely cheap and does it's job beyond belief. No more worrying to defrag or losing performance with HDDs. It's just fast, consistent and for 1TB and under 200.00 USD. It's amazing how far this technology has come and how the price has tanked. Windows boots in seconds instead of minutes, games just, boom, done. It's amazing, zero regret purchase, definitely want to get more. Screw that having only one or two games on a 128 or 250GB SSD.

This is actually my biggest excitement about this build. Coming from a mech hard drive this ssd will make anyone happy as it boots windows in a blink of an eye and since i have all of my games loaded on here for now, loads my games very quickly as well. Very satisfied as at the time this was considered a budget ssd.

I got this SSD to replace a 1TB Seagate Barracuda. Hard drives are a lot cheaper, but they are slow and make noise, and I have been wanting to go full-SSD for a while. That's why I decided to get the 1TB SU800.
Pros: It's fast. Crystal Disk Mark shows that the 1TB SU800 has about the same speeds for reads and writes as my 500GB 860 Evo that I use for the boot drive. It is quiet. At idle, the only real noise coming from my computer was the hard drive randomly spinning up, and I won't be sad to be rid of that. I now have all of my Windows user folders (documents, pictures, videos, music) and my entire Steam library on an SSD. There is plenty of room for expansion.
Cons: In daily use, I've not noticed a real difference in performance from the hard drive, not that I expected that I would. The real cons come from Adata's software. It is nowhere near the quality or as user friendly as the software from Samsung. Samsung allows updating of the firmware through their software, where Adata's software simply says to update from the downloaded file, but I apparently would have to download the file myself.
Other Thoughts: Samsung has excellent migration software that is easy to obtain and use. Adata uses Acronis. I can't comment on how easy it is to use Acronis because I didn't need to do data migration in this case because Windows and Steam both make it easy to change file locations for user folders and game files. If Samsung was having a sale where the price was within $10 of the corresponding Adata product, I would absolutely spend extra for Samsung's superior software experience and support. For a game drive, I think this will be fine. I would give it 3.5/5 stars.
