The S396 is AData’s version of a specialized SATA II drive. This solid state drive comes only in 30 GB and 60 GB capacities and is built using Multi Level Cell (MLC) 25nm Synchronous NAND modules. AData includes as a disclaimer that 13% of the total capacity is used in operation which means consumers would not actually use the 30 GB or 60 GB rating.

The drive performance is typical for a SATA II 3 GBps solid state drive. The S396’s maximum sequential read speed is 280 MB/s while its maximum sequential write speed is 250 MB/s. AData does not provide the IOPS read numbers for this particular drive except its write IOPS which peaks at 4,000. The S396’s features include RAID support and TRIM command support.

Users who have 3.5″ drives can utilize the included bracket adapter. The Mean Time Between Failure for this drive is 1,000,000 hours and comes with a three year warranty.
