Reviews and Problems with A-DATA N005 32GB USB 3.0

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.
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).
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.
Summary: The drive comes pre-formatted and the drive itself is full sized. Performace wise, being engineered in the newer 3.0 platform, it is definitely faster than it's 2.0 precedessor but it's certainly not running at the blazing speed of the newer higher end USB 3.0 drives (i.e Kingston HyperX drives). The only major complaint is that ADATA needs to put more engineering into its cap design.
Summary: I bought this during a lightning deal for Cyber Monday, so it was a pretty good deal for a USB 3.0 32GB flash drive. It transfers pretty fast, certainly faster then any other USB 2.0 drive I have used. There are 2 negatives to this product that I have noticed. First, the cap does not stay on very well...it pops off just sitting in your pocket. Second, this flash drive is huge!
Summary: Its done its job well over the last few weeks. I feel like it does perform well most of the time but, at periods, seems like its transferring a little slower than it should (My desktop has USB 3.0). I'll update with more details once I get the chance! Overall, it was worth the $60 and still is a substantial improvement over USB 2.0.
Excerpt: сразу имеет смысл форматировать в exfat или ntfs дабы носить файлы более 4 гигов, но тогда её перестает читать всё кроме компьютера.
Pros: Быстрая(при копировании винт пишет медленнее чем читает флешка), вместительная, USB3.0, нет проблем с обратной совместимостью.
Cons: достаточно большая по сравнению с другими, может помешать использовать соседний USB порт; жутко не удобный колпачок, который сам по себе от малейшего касания спрыгивает, закрывать можно только ради развлечения в 90% случаев достаются из сумки или кармана по отдельности; цена почти в 2 раза больше других, медленных;
