I love Adata. In Canada, they're always at the top of the "bang for buck" category. I have an SX8200 (non pro), and it's great. Much cheaper than Samsung, 95% of the performance.

Depends on price. 2100 / 1500 is nothing to sneeze at, and if it's much cheaper than Samsung, a lot of bang-for-buck guys like me will buy it. Yeah you won't get the speed, but is that speed noticeable in anything other than SSD speed bar graphs? Heck, I went from RAID0 SSDs to NVME, and even though the speed is WAY higher, I don't feel that speed difference at all.

That's good to know, I am yet to afford and nvme drive although I expect to get one for xmas, maybe I would be better off steering SWIMBO to a larger slower drive than the smaller faster samsung.

If you look at the current SX8200, the stats are comparable to Samsungs (at least the 1TB model). Looking at current Canadian local pricing:

1) ADATA SX8200 960GB - 3200 read / 1700 write, $294CDN
2) Samsung 970 EVO 1TB - 3500 read / 2500 write, $439CDN

If you drop down to the Samsung 960 EVO, it's still $338CDN (on sale though, BIG sale, like old stock blowout sale). So in that particular case, ADATA blows Samsung right out of the water IMO.

In Sweden Samsung is actually a couple of bucks cheaper for some reason. Guess we are getting robbed.

The new corsair MP510 series is as fast if not faster than the Samsung 970 series and is much cheaper. No reason to buy Adata with the corsair stuff around.

Not where I live. Corsair is right up there with Samsung, $419CDN for their 960GB Force. We get WAY better prices on ADATA. EDIT: either that, or price drops are slower to filter down to us for the bigger names.

Well it's most likely due to the fact they have to ship further to you.

In the US the mp510 series is anywhere from $20-40 cheaper than the 970evo
