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.
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.
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.
