ADATA SU800 256GB 3D NAND Flash SSD Test & Review

I keep reading these drives are slower, but they are cheap and still SSD and work very fast for my needs.

As you can see the sequential read is 481-491MB/s, if I put them in MDADM RAID10 mode (normal RAID1) they should give me well over 900MB/s and with redundancy and being very cheap for what they offer.
