It seems that bait n' switch is now prevalent on storage, even on SSDs


Recommended Posts

Tom's Hardware ran an article that certain SSD manufacturers are changing the type of NAND flash and SSD controller without informing consumers. The changes resulted in a net loss in performance, something along the lines of a 41% reduction in copy operations as well as a 500MB/s decline in light workloads. The modifications were made after the review item has gotten accolades but without applying so much as a model or SKU change, underscoring these manufacturers' intent to hide it from the public.

Wow, seriously? That seems sketchy as heck. That is not a good look for ADATA. I've talked with them for years at CES. They need to get in front of this.
