Summary: This flash drive arrived when expected and in good shape. It works just as expected. What really impressed me was the build quality. It's rather heavy, being made of metal. This would make an excellent gift for the special geek in your life or for bosses day.
Solid Drive & Design But Moving Parts Weaken This Product Significantly

Summary: Purchased two of these for quickly swapping large files from home, work, school, friends, etc. Great looking design and solid carabiner for quick release yet secure storage. My only gripe is that the actual USB dongle that folds out from the body is rather loose, and loosens more and more over time.
Summary: I have used several ADATA flash drives in the past and I like the look and feel of them. I ordered one for myself and it arrived fast. After using it for several months the metal USB portion of the drive came loose and stayed in the USB slot while the internals spilled all over the desk.
Summary: I love the physical function of the drive and it works perfectly for me. Be it key ring or belt loop I can clip this drive and go. Never had any issues with crowding ports that I have had before and the hefty design affords it a bit of protection.
Summary: Design is good. It clips on/off of keychains very easily, yet it's secure and won't fall off on it's own. USB part snaps into place at 90deg and when fully opened/closed. Tested transfer speed with large files: ~8MB/s write, ~30MB/s read, which is a little bit slower than I expected but not awful.
Summary: I already owned the 8GB model and only needed a bit more storage. This is actually the 3rd one and only the first gave me any trouble. It lasted just over 1 year and without warning, quit working completely.
Summary: Having needed a larger USB stick for a long time, this fills a pain point that was really needed. I had been carrying around several smaller USB sticks for a long time. The need to carry one that would fill the need for larger files was a long time over due. It has done the job up to now.
