Excellent Speed, Good Price

Stephen O., Newegg
3 June 2014
  • Summary: The speed isn't phenomenal but in serious operation it will definitely tap out usb 2.0. If you want a faster drive you're going to have to go with bigger capacity (more silicon means more parallel access)
  • Pros: -Decent price while still maintaining quality -USB 3.0 speed -Convenient Cap
  • Cons: -Still as easy to lose as most drives

Works as advertised

David B., Newegg
31 January 2014
  • Summary: I honestly don't use USB drives very often and generally am not moving large amounts of data when I do use them. So this 8GB stick does the job nicely. Plus the up and down speeds are so much faster than that of my older 2.0 sticks.
  • Pros: Much, much faster than my decrepit USB 2.0 sticks. Durable aluminum shell. Got it on sale.
  • Cons: None

8GB USB 3.0 key ... reliable enough

Edward S., Newegg
1 December 2013
  • Summary: Adata has been hit or miss with me. I bought these for testing and for giving out.
  • Pros: Reliable. Fast enough. I use these for making bootable drives (LiveCD, disinfecting PCs and for ASD drives...if ya gotta ask, I won't tell) Cheap.
  • Cons: No indication of read/writing. No LED. Who cares about the cap? I need feedback or indication other then mounted (think using more than one) on desktop. Oh well.

  • Summary: I'm very happy with it, I hope it never fails.
  • Pros: The speeds seem to be a little over the advertised (~15mb/s up and ~130mb/s down). The drive feels solid, proper quality.
  • Cons: None

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.

Cheap yet sturdy; gets the job done

Ryan S., Newegg
10 June 2013
  • Summary: Can't speak to longevity yet, but after plugging this in and running some benchmarks,
  • Pros: Can corroborate the claimed tech specs -- doing read-only tests w/USB3, I was able to reach max throughput of 70-80 Mbps (~9 or 10 MiB/s). Also, drive feels great in my hand.
  • Cons: Write performance blows compared to more expensive drives.
