Setup & Testing
Getting the SE900G setup is extremely easy, just plug it into your PC using the included USB cable. Obviously you want to make sure to plug it into a USB 3.2 gen 2×2 port for the fastest speeds, but it is backwards compatible. Once plugged in you’ll notice it up with RGB lighting. There are two row of RGB LEDs on each side under the top cover. These sort of do like a rainbow wave, which looks pretty good. There is no way to control these LEDs or turn them off.
For testing we will be running the SE900G against other portable solid state drives we have on hand so you can see the difference between the drives. As a reminder ADATA lists the speeds of this drive as 2000 MB/s for both read and write. First up we have CrystalDiskMark.
As you can see we have sequential speeds of 2024.47 MB/s read and 1861.03 MB/s write. Here is how the SE900G compares to other drives in that test.
Next we run the the AJA System test. It tests different types of video formats and gives you throughput results for the drive. Our configuration was 4K RED HD footage, 1 GB test file size, and the 8bit YUV codec.
And those results compared to other drives.
Next up is the USB Flash Benchmark, which will transfer various different file sizes to the drive and record the transfer speeds.
We have also added the AS SSD Benchmark and ATTO Disk Benchmark to our portable storage testing.
