This listing says that its speeds are 3,500 read and 3,000 write. The box the device comes in says it only does 1200 write. Bench marking confirmed this to be true. Stay away!

Per factory link .. it is 3500/3000 MB/s http://www.xpg.com/en/feature/583

Speeds 3500/3000 read/write as advertised for 1TB model only. For 256GB model speeds 3500/1200 read/write only.
$2 less than with Amazon Prime... EDIT: They are now the exact same price as on amazon...

I didn't get mine here, i got it on Thanksgiving. I have the 512GB Version on my PC, i can say so far so good. It's fast, reliable and cheap. https://www.facebook.com/Gaming.Ultrawide/
So, is this compatible with a 2016 14" Razer Blade?

Sure it will work Razer decided to launch an early 2016 refresh of its compact gaming line. This refresh included a Skylake CPU, Thunderbolt 3 (via USB Type-C), an SSD (PCIe interface) 
256GB model costs 63$ on Amazon, same price of this drop without the ridiculous amount of wait
Shipping to Canada? Pretty Please?
A comprehensive review TL;DR - excellent performance until about half-full, after that it tanks significantly.

if u get a 970pro u don't need anything else except intel high end industrial class SSD
I kinda understood some of that... So for what sort of workloads would the Pro be worth the price jump over an Evo?
the drop sale wasn't good enough I'd normally join over amazon instant gratification - but I had $20 credit here so I got the 1TB for $169.99 - worth the ship wait this time
slapya
cheaper on rakuten with 15% off sale which happens pretty often.
I would like to know if I can use these as an SSD Cache for a Synology DS918+ ?

Yes.
Massdrop, can you please verify... From Pandora475 on Amazon: "This listing says in multiple places that its speeds are 3,500 read and 3,000 write. The box the device comes in says it only does 1200 write. Bench marking confirmed this to be true. I bought this thinking it was a going to be faster than Samsung's EVO 970 which lists as 2,500 write, but sadly that is not the case. The EVO 970 only costs $3 more and has twice the write performance. I highly suggest you buy it instead." The thing to note is that he reported this for the 256GB model. The 512GB and 1TB seem to be sold as advertised. Again, I don't know if he got the wrong order in he mail, but just wanted to confirm for the other Massdroppers on here if the write speed is or is not at 1200MB as Pandora475 stated and tested.

AData has been lax on the information on this line (just labeling the entire line "up to 3000MB/s"), but it appears true (from pictures of boxes I've seen on reviews). Best I've been able to collect is the max sequential write on the 256GB model is 1200MB/s, 512GB is 2300-2350MB/s, and 1TB is 3000MB/s. Userbenchmark.com comparison appears to loosely support this. This keeps it pretty much in-line with the Samsung 970 Pro, which doesn't have a 256GB version, but matches pretty closely on the 512GB version. Edit: It should also be noted that that reviewer is also getting mixed up, as the 970 EVO 250GB model is advertised with 1500MB/s write, even the 970 EVO 500GB is only 2300MB/s, which is the same on the 970 Pro as well. And this also falls perfectly in line with the similarly announced HP EX950 line which uses the same controller as this offer, and advertised 2250MB/s write at 512GB, 2900MB/s at 1&2TB (they have no 256GB model).

Nah! Another useless drop ... cannot be ship to my country becoz this has "big battery"... :p

It's almost certainly due to ADATA either themselves, or through agreements with distributors in other countries, not wanting to undercut the higher price that these drives generally go for in other countries.
blahhh
Incorrect, this appears to be MD's decision, there are already 2 ADATA ssd drops that ship internationally (one happened about a week ago, one is progress as of March 14). Besides, it is stupid to block the entire world when ADATA clearly doesn't have distributor in every of ~200 countries out there, so it's most certainly not ADATA as they wouldn't be shooting themselves in the foot like this.

just got the non-pro version for $50 yesterday!

It’s on Newegg everyone.
NoRegerts
yes it was. Is it now again?
adata doesn't stand by their warranty. I had a drive that stopped working after 8 months and they wouldn't do anything for me.
check the actual part number ASX8200PNP, it's a lot more on Amazon & the egg.
This is a pretty great drive and the drop prices are OK at best vs. Best actual market price I could find. Drop prices vs. Current (save $10, wait a month to SHIP) DROP price 256GB $64.99 ////// Amazon $74.99 (free shipping) http://a.co/d/0FYvkRk (save $18, wait a month to SHIP) DROP price 512GB $99.99 ////// Manufacturer $117.99 (free shipping) https://shop.adata.com/us/ASX8200PNP-512GT-C (save $15, wait a month to SHIP) DROP price 1TB $199.99 ////// Manufacturer $214.99 (free shipping) https://shop.adata.com/us/ASX8200PNP-1TT-C So the savings are fair, but the wait is always what kills me with the drops... So you have to ask yourself is the cash savings worth the wait. If you don't mind waiting, then this is a pretty fair drop.

It wasn't meant to be a low blow. I just meant I'm a kid without a job, so I don't think I have to pay those taxes
HappyNem
Makes more sense to go with amazon for sure, pay an extra 15$ and get it in two days instead of a month... stick to what you’re good at massdrop.
No international shipping? what a Shame
No international shipping?
This is an OK deal. I’d like to see the 1tb option be a bit lower though. The 512GB could be had for ~$89 from Newegg in recent memory

still a deal?
TeensierPython
No, it really isn’t. The 240 is $15 cheaper and the 512 is $2 cheaper on Newegg right now. Edit: oh and the 256GB is the same price. Edit 2: It appears some of the listings I viewed didn’t contain the PRO version. This is a deal on this product, albeit a minor one ($20 at the most on the 512 model compared to amazon, $10 on the 256 and $15 on the 1tb). I apologize for the misinfo.
