poor assembly

Mark Twain "Mark Twain", Amazon
2 June 2013
  • Summary: beware; the chip component inside which interfaces with the computer plug-in is completely unattached to the body of the device; I returned to receive a second and the same thing; plug into computer and remove only to have the body of the device in my hand and the internal chip portion still plugged into the computer. No it is not my computer, I use plenty of other devices.

ADATA S805 Sport 8 gb USB 2.0 Flash drive

AC, Amazon
30 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought two of these flash drives. One for myself and one for my wife. I mainly kept mine in a drawer while my wife hersey secured to her car keys. Mine still works, her's looks a little scratched up and does not work. Though the keychain idea is a good one, the housing is not durable enough to take a beating as a keychain. I would recommend this flash drive only if you are careful to not bang it up too much.

Durable USB key chain drive (Update: But unreliable)

Don Bailey "GrumpyGeek", Amazon
12 September 2011
  • Summary: A couple of years ago I started carrying my passwords and ebooks with me on a 2GB Flash drive attached to my key chain. This has worked out great for me, however after about 3 years the wire tether that attached the original drive to the key chain broke and I started searching for a replacement.

Someone put some thought into this - ***ADDED COMMENT***

Alice Winter, Amazon

  • Summary: It's obvious that whoever designed this flash drive put some thought into its practicality. Besides serving as a tool for storing digital information, it carries several features that distinguish it from other run-of-the-mill flash drives: 1. It can easily go on a keychain. This by itself is a highlight for me because I've been getting tired of encountering so many flash drives that just have a tiny little hole for a lanyard strap and no real way to put it on a keychain.

Great flash drive that may hold up to the riggors of daily use

B. Norwood, Amazon
22 October 2009
  • Summary: I like to keep a flash drive on my key chain but the plastic cases all seem to break after 3-4 months use. The drives themselves still work, but not whatever contraption that it had to hold it to a key chain. With this flash drive, I feel confident it will make it longer. The drive housing is metal and feels very solid. It is also very easy to take off of a key chain which I really like. As far as data transfer goes, it seems fast enough.

  • Excerpt: Не рекомендую. Потратил 850р. Считаю что зря, мог бы взять и получше.
  • Pros: Прикольная, красивая.
  • Cons: Крупновата. Средние показатели скорости чтения-записи. Когда купил - решил форматнуть в NTFS. Это было зря. Начала глючить безбожно. Только что-нить запишешь и дойдешь до другого компа - она на нем не опознается и приходится форматировать, и так через раз. Когда вернул FAT32 стало лучше, такое стало повторятся раза в 2-3 реже. Но данные терялись постоянно. Записывал большие папки с сотнями файлов, обязательно что-нить оказывалось битым. Умерла через 3 месяца. Комп ее ...

  • Excerpt: "В течении 3-х недель разболтался механизм выдвижения Usb." К Флешке относился очень бережно(никаким нагрузкам её не не подвергал - носил в кармане рубашки=)), пользовал ей примерно 20 раз. ИТОГ: если это проблема только у меня - то стоит брать!!! Если это проблема всех флешек серии A-DATA S 805 покупать не советую, становится очень не удобно когда происходит самопроизвольное выпадание USB из корпуса. Решение за Вами ...
  • Pros: 1.Металлический корпус. 2. Карабин (удобно вешать на ключи). 3. Стильный дизайн. 4. Довольно неплохая скорость записи и чтения.
  • Cons: Единственный минус!!! В течении 3-х недель разболтался механизм выдвижения Usb.
