Not bad for the price, but...

Julio A. Garrido, Amazon
22 July 2013
  • 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. I was able to put it back together and it was still usable. After that the metal shield was loose, but easily fixed with a dab of epoxy glue. No more issues.

  • Summary: Very practical and reliable USB drive. I used before the same model but 8GB and it last me for many years. I just switched to 32GB and I am happy again.

Good design

Mike, Amazon

  • 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. Recently purchased so I can't speak to longevity, but design was what I was looking for and it works great so far.

Just what I wanted but with reservations

  • 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. They all seem very sturdy and other than scratches caused by the constant jiggling while in my pocket, held up very well. The main reason I returned to this same brand is the carabiner clip. I need a drive with me almost all the time.

Very easy to put on a key chain

Xman, Amazon
21 October 2011
  • Summary: I love the the big Carabbiner-style clip -- it has a large opening that fits easily on a keychain and is easy to take on and off. Seems durable. My only possible complaints are (1) an activity light would be a nice addition and (2) I got a double-check airport because it looks slightly like a swiss army knife.

Just what I needed

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 October 2011
  • Summary: I just wanted to say this is exactly what I was looking for. I like keeping a USB drive on my keychain and the plastic ones kept on breaking on me. This one has a nice metal design and a clip that is easy to remove from the keychain. Most importantly it is solidly built and will not break easily like those cheap plastic ones. Worth a few extra bucks. Also it has had no problem reading in any device and computer I've used.

Great looking style and convenience

HAYOUNG KIM "tinker toy maker", Amazon

  • Summary: The most attractive USB thumb drive and very convenient style package. Chrome trim and red color gives the best aesthetics of its kind. Actually, I had a 8GB version that I broke by having on the belt with a strong magnet tool holder. So I had to buy another one with the same look. So far, I've been doing good keeping away from super magnets.

small

  • Summary: Works just fine - a bit faster than I expected from pricepoint. Is much smaller than I thought it would be, but makes putting in my pocket that much easier. After almost a month of abuse, in my pocket, it is holding up great. Very happy.

key chain jump drive

ry9an, Amazon
21 February 2011
  • Summary: I wanted a jump drive for my key chain, and liked this design. I've had a lot of issues with jump drives breaking off in the past, so I though this might solve the problem. It looks awesome, but every once and awhile it will get in an awkward position and pop off the key chain. Speed really is not issue with this jump drive, as I read in other reviews. It's not the fastest, but gets the job the done.

Very convenient

Kevin C "KevinC", Amazon
10 February 2011
  • Summary: I have had this drive about 3 months now and it works well. THe only 2 complains I have is that the clip isn't very strong. I find my keys coming off it in my pocket some of the time. The other thing is that it doesn't have a "active" led so you are not completely sure when to remove it. It fits well in the pocket and feels fairly well made - time will tell.
