Summary: Needless to say the frustration and disappointment over the waste of time, especially because all ADATA products that I purchased over the years, and most of them still in use, didn't fail me. RMA was easy, but ADATA owe me the wasted time to test a product that I really doubt that passed any test before was packed and put on the market.
Pros: Size, price, solid built
Cons: Tested this S102 32GB drive right out of the pack, just minutes apart, in the very same USB 3.0 ports, side by side with 2 older smaller capacity siblings (S102 - 16 GB) that I used for more than 1 year. The results for this 32MB model were consistently and significant less than half of that 16 GB older drives (again, all are from the S102 Pro Efortless family) To add insult to injury, several read/write full tests showed multiple errors on this 32 GB, and reformattin...
Summary: I am completely thoughtless at the moment.
Pros: It's small and sticky and fast! Here are my test results: Serial Number: 1470209141260063 Model: ADATA USB Flash Drive Vendor: ADATA Product: USB_FLASH_DRIVE Revision: 1100 File system: FAT32 Size: 29596 MB Read speed: 123.90 MB/s Write speed: 57.05 MB/s
Cons: Not the most comfortable fit in my USB port. Feels like I could easily damage something. Does not have a key chain hole, but thats OK, I have a power drill! You can't beat the performance for this price.
Summary: Although it suddenly failed I'm still giving it 5 stars because the price, performance and the warranty policy still justify it. Since my Synology 409+'s fans died and I haven't been able to find adequate replacements (for over a year), the server overheats and shuts down after a while. So for the time being I've been transferring movies and TV shows to this USB drive instead, and watching them on my Samsung Smart TV.
Pros: Good R/W speeds. Lifetime warranty which ADATA made good on.
Cons: Died after 1 year but still worth it. I never keep critical data, nor completely rely on any USB flash drive, so no big deal. RMA's are a bit cumbersome: Filled out RMA request online and received an MS Word doc via email to fill out. Emailed back completed doc and received it again, this time with an RMA #. Packed device along with RMA form and wrote RMA # on 2 sides of box and sent it. Received replacement promptly via USPS. NOTE: Product Type / Model = USB Flash Dr...
Pros: First, it’s a flash drive that does everything Adata states it will. I own three of various sizes, 16, 32, and 64. As for speed, it varies from one PC to another. Who made the MB / drivers seems the variable. It’s faster on my laptop with an i5, 8 GB than my desktop with a six core AMD FX-6350 with 16 GB. So whatever the issue is, it’s not the thumb drive. If I wait a few more second between systems, who really cares. My desktop has an Adata SSD, so go figure. It’s ru...
Summary: I ran 5 tests using Crystal Disk Mark with a 1000MB file: Sequential Read: 112 MB/s Sequential Write: 38 MB/s 512K Read: 103.4 MB/s 512KB Write: 11.35 MB/s 4K Read: 4.2 MB/s 4K Write: 0.6 MB/s 4K QD32 Read: 5 MB/s 4K QD32 Write: 0.5 MB/s
Pros: The average sequential read speeds I get are about 112 MB/s which is above what is advertised on this drive... The size of this drive is fantastic. It allows for use of other USB devices to be plugged into nearby ports (even on the back of the motherboard). It is also made out of nice material and doesn't feel like a cheap PNY Attaché drive. The cap isn't attached BUT you can put it on the other end of the drive so as not to lose it. I wish it came with the string to ...
Cons: The write speeds are below what is advertised. I guess I traded 12 MB/s in write to the read speeds (which I guess isn't that bad). Sequential writes are averaging 38 MB/s.
Pros: Fairly good speed. Suitable for use as a boot disk. Great for a couple of days. Read: 362 MB in 3.01 seconds = 120.32 MB/sec Write: 4MiB 75.3M/s 2MiB 72.7M/s 1MiB 74.6M/s 512KiB 61.2M/s 256KiB 53.3M/s 128KiB 35.5M/s 64KiB 22.8M/s 32KiB 8.09M/s 16KiB 6.48M/s 8KiB 2.18M/s 4KiB 986K/s
Cons: It doesn't work anymore. It actually powers up, but appears to have no medium present.
Summary: Bought this for my Xbox 360 Slim for the sole intention of installing Grand Theft Auto 5's play disc onto it. Game installs one disc of content onto the HDD and then has a play disc so assets can be loaded from the internal HDD and the disc at the same time to speed up load times. Anyways game loaded slowly and content pop in was really noticeable plus the disc drive was running constantly.
Pros: Got this both for it's high posted speed benchmarks using USB 3.0 and 2.0. Got it for use with an Xbox 360 Slim and when not needed for that I would have a fast USB 3.0 drive. Has worked great in the 360 Slim actively used for 100+ hours. In the console powered on, but not being used at least 500 hours. Aluminum body gives it a quality feel plus keeps it cool. During initial testing it also worked well with my Nexus 10 using a OTG usb cable and Stickmount. Now that GT...
Cons: Really only con I can think of is the cap might be easily lost. Luckily for my purposes I keep it plugged in and the cap in a draw with my other USB drives and cables.
