ADATA's new entry level SSD is the second to the market which utilizes Micron's 3D NAND and also incorporates the new SM2258G controller from Silicon Motion.  ATTO shows the performance you would expect from a drive in this class, 560MB/s read 512MB/s write for sequential data at 128KB and higher, assuming you do not completely fill the SLC cache.  The SSD Review did not see write performance drop off until they had written 60GB in one shot, the drop is quite dramatic but for most users 60GB writes happen infrequently.  Check out the full review if you are in the market for a value priced SSD.

560/512...isn't that, like, the very tip of the cap for SATA III? It's basically pushing right into the wall.
If there's gonna be a 2TB version of this model and they'll price it at 0.22$/GB or even lower than that (0.20 would be absolutely perfect for me personally, since it's basically 5 gigs of SSD space for a dollar, which we really need to become a mainstream practice by now), then I'll definitely be getting one of those, regardless if it's TLC trash or not. But only (and ONLY) if it's at least 2TB and priced below 0.25, otherwise - into the trash bin and the eternal obscurity it instantly goes.

ADATA has listed on their website 400TBW for 1TB model so I think you can use linear curve for other models...
