No activity LED

EZ S., Newegg
23 July 2013
  • Summary: If the lack of an activity indicator is irrelevant, don't hesitate.
  • Pros: A solid USB 3 drive
  • Cons: There is no activity LED which is kind of important when dealing with the sick systems I meet everyday

Solid Stick

Sheree C., Newegg
7 July 2013
  • Summary: Great stick to boot a Linux distro from
  • Pros: It does what it's supposed to do. I never tested data flow rates, but they seem very quick. It's simple and performance oriented, exactly what I was looking for.
  • Cons: Cap isn't attached via lanyard, but you can attach it to the rear of the drive when in use.

  • Summary: What stunned me was the built of it. I like the feeling of it. I get an average reading speed of 73.3MB/s at 64KB block size. I think that is pretty good. It is better that my Corsair Flash Voyager 16GB on that but it is less constant. The flash voyager is just one straight line ( very constant) while the AS102 of ADATA has varying speed although faster.
  • Pros: Very well build~! Superb design~!
  • Cons: None

Not terrible.

Derek N., Newegg
14 February 2013
  • Summary: While it's nice for reading data, I have old usb 2.0 devices that are a fair bit faster for writes, which can get a bit annoying when you are writing 4-5GB files...
  • Pros: Fast read speeds, around 80MB/s when connected USB 3.
  • Cons: Write speeds terribly under expectations, barely touching 10MB/s.

  • Summary: I purchase this as well as it's bigger brother 16gb both are very good for drag and drop. I thought they where very fast for transporting Avi as well as full format DVD files to watch on the large screen T.V. USB 3.0 is very stable as well as fast. Have not used the complete memory of the flashdrives as yet, but I'm impressed.
  • Pros: Excellent for drag/drop  storeage
  • Cons: Non found

ADATA S102 Pro

JOHN H., Newegg
17 January 2013
  • Summary: I didn't put this and the cons area because it was more of a fluke than a con. Apparently at the factory somebody had a sense of humor that day, and formatted the USB stick in FAT16 (Which has a two gig capacity). So when I tried to transfer a 6.23 GB file onto it on its first use I got an error message stating, "drive is full, please use another drive with larger capacity"
  • Pros: It has a nice extruded aluminum housing, not plastic (with the exception of the cap). Has USB 3.0 capability, as well as backwards compatible. I personally experienced high data transfer speed, (write speed: 12.43MB/sec read speed: 66.32MB/sec). The read speed was faster than some older hard drives I have. Not a bad price to boot. Works well as a Windows 7 USB install Key, quite a bit faster than the DVD.
  • Cons: none as of yet, but have only had the drive for less than a day.

  • Summary: Updated 3-4-2013: I bought 3 drives, 2 x 8gb and 1 x 32gb. ALL OF THEM have died. and No they were not all for me, the 32gb was for me while the 8gb's were for co workers. We also bought on that same order Patriot Memory Supersonic Magnum 64 GB Flash Drive - Black (PEF64GSMNUSB) that has still been working and working well. I'm going to try to get these replaced under the warranty but i also plan on buying replacements.. dont trust adata any more.

  • Summary: Good build quality. Write speeds could be a little faster as it is a USB 3.0 Pro version, but still good enough for everyday use. And I got it on sale for cheap, so I can't complain.
  • Pros: Well built, fast
  • Cons: Average write speed
