Dead after one year

J Lin, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: The drive was great for the first year that I had it. Upload/download speeds were blazing fast, and 32gb of storage was awesome for holding tons of stuff. My only problem was that the cap did not stay on, and I frequently ended up losing it until I found it lying around days later. Unfortunately, the drive crashed after about a year of light use, and the drive is no longer recognizable by any computer that I've tried.

Died today, about 1 year of use

  • Summary: Died completely in about 1 year (it's not even reconizable by mac or pc). All data lost, thank for backups. A bit bulky, may leave other usb ports unusable.

I have the 16GB as well

  • Summary: I have both this, and the 16GB as well. THEY ARE FAST! I was skeptical about usb 3.0 when it was released. So much that I refused to use it...I kept with cat6. However, I'm as pleased to use it as I am to use my gigabit network. Speeds are great for transferring HD video. Who'd of thought when compared to usb 2.0 :) GREAT BUY! ADATA is one of the best; so is Transcend.

Excellent!

  • Summary: Good buy!! It has a really fast speed, and the right amount of space I need. This is great for large files to transfer. It's fast on USB 2.0 too! However the fastest speed is on USB 3.0 port.

Amazingly fast transfer rate

John Wildgen, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: I absolutely love this flash drive! It is actually reads/writes at the quoted speed which is on an entire different level than any normal drive! I use it for all types of purposes and it hasn't failed me yet in the year I've had it. It works amazingly for boot-able disc images to install operating systems 10x faster than I've ever seen with usb 3.0!

Crashed after 3 months; no longer useful

Philip Tilker, Amazon
26 April 2013
  • Summary: After only 3 months of use, the drive just stopped working. When you plug it in to the computer, Windows will show a removable disk in "My Computer" but when you click on it, you are told to insert the media. I tried on several machines with different operating systems and the same problem exists. The recovery tools from ADATA also are unable to find the drive. At this point, the drive is useless and all my data on it is lost.

a bit big

  • Summary: Much bigger than most flash drives, could be bothersome at times. Got it as a gold box deal, great price at the time but prices have come down since then.

Extremely fast

Sailing123, Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: Fast memory, worthwhile to get even if you only have USB 2.0 as I get faster read-write times on my old ports than with a regular flash drive. This thing is MASSIVE however. It's like a 2005-era flash drive in size.

Good fast thumbdrive

D C, Amazon
16 February 2013
  • Summary: This is a fast drive. I was able to write an avg of 40-70Mb/s to this depending on the source and file type. It was a bit larger than I expected it to be (~2in long). I also have the S102 model and this one is just better with speed and it doesn't lag down my system when writing to it (probably because it has a true USB 3 chip inside of it as opposed to the S102 which was a pseudo USB 3 that implemented a Raid like tech to achieve USB 3 like performance).

Feels durable, cap bites

Brandon, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: I carry this USB to and from school and my only gripe with it is that the cap covering the connector falls off constantly. For that reason alone I deducted a star as I feel that when transporting a small usb drive it's an important factor. If you are never going to travel with it I don't see a loose cap being an issue save for dust. The stick has a nonslip type coating on it.
