Unboxing the ADATA SP900 Solid State Drive

ADATA recently released their SP800 and SP900 solid state drives. The only real difference between these drives is that the SP900 is a SATA 6G drive and the SP800 is a SATA 3G drive. Now these drives are also a little bit different from other solid state drives we have taken a look at in the past as they are some of the first 0-provision drives. This means instead of reserving 7% of the drive for provisioning it reserves nothing. We will get into all of that next week in the full review, but in the meantime check out our unboxing and overview video.
