The ADATA Swordfish is a value-oriented drive that is aimed squarely at the entry-level NVMe SSD market. This drive is for those that are looking to save $10 or $20 on a new build or to upgrade an existing drive on a system where price matters more than performance. Enthusiasts and prosumers will pass on this drive, but it is a respectable little NVMe drive series. The fact that it comes with pretty healthy endurance rating and a 5-year warranty is very impressive. If you are looking for a drive on a system that is only lightly used the ADATA Swordfish would certainly make sense. We understand that not everyone is a gamer or content creator and that some people just browse the web and check their e-mail.
When it comes to pricing the Swordfish can be found for as little as $0.12 per GB before any promotional pricing or rebate offers. That makes it one of the lowest priced NVMe drives on that market at this point in time. The ADATA Swordfish 1TB SSD that we reviewed today runs $115. That is a great price for a 1TB drive and should be really enticing for those that still have a traditional hard drive as their primary boot drive.
