Summary: when I ordered this I expected to get a decent quality USB 3.0 flash drive that I could carry around every day on my keychain with out having to worry about rain, or dropping it. what I received is a disappointment. I have 3 major issues with this device: 1. The cover constantly falls off (and there's not even a replacement). 2. I can not make this device run above USB 2.0 speeds. I've have tried everything. 3.
Summary: I selected this flash drive because I wanted something more durable than a standard USB jump drive. Instead, this device has been the least durable flash drive I have ever owned. The device stopped being recognized by my computer (dead) after only two months of light use. I had been keeping it in my laptop bag so it isn't as if I was mistreating it just because it's supposed to be "shock resistant.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for Christmas 2013 for my husband. He used it for a while and then in mid January 2014 it stopped being recognized / working. No worries - I ordered a replacement in January - received January 28th, and it quit working after about a month. His theory is that the case is not protective from flexing and that is causing the failure. Anyway - DO NOT BUY and if you have to have one - don't put critical backups on it...
Summary: Worked wonderfully at first. Nicely built, only con was that the cap that seals the connection has nothing holding it to the stick so it was lost after 2 months. Driver worked for 3 months more till suddenly it now fails to connect, tried it on several ports on two computers where other drivers work. Nada. Dead.
Summary: When i bought it after one week or many days , it's stop working i don't why suddenly stopped work and i did used few time like 5 times ,so now it's not working and i'm live in Iraq . my money goes without nothing .
Summary: The device suddenly stopped working. I tried to contact ADATA support 5 times, 3 from their support form and 2 directly to their email address, and I never got an answer. I WAS a adata loyal customer, but after these incidents (their support), I hardly will buy anything from them again. PS: The device has a lifetime warranty, but looks like they don't want to fulfill it. I'm extemely disappointed.
Summary: Bought two of these and lost all data on one after 4 months. Just stopped working. Sadly it was only used in an office environment! I would hate to think how long this would last if the waterproof shock-resistant claims were put to the test.
Summary: Died just out of warranty. Don't trust your data to A-DATA. I will never buy another one of their products. This is an expensive item and I'm bitterly disappointed in the quality. And yes (in case you're wondering) I tried every tip on the internet and every recovery tool, on several different computers. It was dead, dead, dead.
