So i just got this SSD today , it's ADATA SU650 480GB and i was really surprised , at first i encountered a bug where data written was 700TB before even making a partition (spoiler alert : it's 25660TB after a couple of hours LOL) so this is not too much of a problem just a software bug

but then after monitoring for a bit i realized the temperature is WAY HIGH , my windows is on my other ssd and im not even using the ssd in anyway and it idles at 67C as i'm writing this , it was lower before but it is 67c right now

when it was cooler i did run crystaldisk and the speed was actually impressive but when i noticed the temp went higher than 70c i ran crystaldisk again and it throttled to hell (screenshots at the end)

So I can't really refund it but i think i can get another one , but what i'm scared of right now is that all of SU650 SSDs are this bad , is this the case?

Software bug and 67C at idle....that is a defective device.

Possibly update the firmware on it?
If that does not change it completely....get a new one. Either FREE from ADATA or whoever you bought it from. Or buy some other make drive.

You got this today, and it is reporting 700TB already written? And after that25660TB?
Even if it is just a reporting bug, that needs to be fixed.

Why can you not get a refund? Have you contacted the retailer or ADATA?

so yeah its just a software bug cause sentinel is reporting the right data written

but the fact that even after a restart its 66C and its not even running anything not even windows is worrying

the thing is : where i live we are not actually with direct contact with ADATA , there is a company here that warranty their products , it has 3 years of "exchange warranty" so that's why i can't really refund

yeah i will contact them at 2 days since its the weekend , i think i can get another one from them , i'll just hope the other one is alright

funny thing is i was searching for this problem online and there were a couple of others with the same issue ! so that's why i was worried that all SU650's are CRAP lol

also this is the latest firmware
