ADATA Legend 750 1TB review – snappy Gen. 3 NVMe with decently large SLC cache

The Gen. 5 SSDs soon will become the new normal but for the regular even a decent Gen. 3 NVMe drive is still more than enough. Yes, for basic daily tasks, gaming, OS install, etc, a not-so-expensive device is just fine, except for the QLC drives which are mainly suitable for storage / read needs because of the low TBW warranty period and low 4K speeds.

Today we’re going to show a well-priced NVMe Gen. 3 drive named ADATA Legend 750 1TB. We already have a review of the ADATA Legend 710 1TB and this time we’ll test the bigger sibling. The manufacturer is claiming up to 3.500MB/s and 3.000MB/s Sequential Read / Write speeds which on paper looks like an upper-tier NVMe. That’s a bold claim and we’ll inspect the performance of the drive with the aid of some popular benchmarks. On the other hand, it’s clear to us that some corners have been cut because of the low end price. This ADATA NVMe lacks DRAM but it comes with SLC Cache so let’s check if it’s worthy or not.
