3.0 speed and distinguishable

orderguy, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: NOTE: these are 3.0. That's a big deal for speed and a great value for these. I use these (yes, I bought more) as ones for guests to use. I like that there's a completely different color on it (yellow on mine) such that they can always be distinguished from the others.

It worked great...until it didn't

John W., Newegg

  • Summary: I'm wondering if a connection just let loose inside this thing...or perhaps a cold solder joint. I have nothing to lose by prying it open and taking a look.
  • Pros: USB 3.0. It was fast. Good amount of storage for the price.
  • Cons: Without any indication of an impending failure, it just up and died. No computer recognizes it anymore. I had it about a year when it failed.

SLOW!!!

Shawn G., Newegg

  • Summary: Unless this thing comes free, I would not waste a single dollar on this USB flash drive.
  • Pros: It came free with my Intel SSD.
  • Cons: This this is SLOOOOOOOOOOW. I couldn't believe that the fastest it could go on my PC was KBPS. My rig is built pretty sturdy with i7-4970K and MSI gaming 7 therefore I know it was not my USB ports. My patriot xporter with its USB 2.0 runs 10x faster than this thing.

Barely faster than USB 2.0

Vincent M., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I just did extensive testing on 2 different computers and compared it to several USB 2.0 thumb drives. I repeated the tests many times with the same results. A 1.4gb file took 2:55 min to write to this Adata and 3:30 to a USB 2.0 Sandisk Cruser. 35 seconds faster is hardly USB 3.0.
  • Pros: No pros.
  • Cons: SLOW

Larger USB sticks appear to be uinreliable

Holland M., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Pros: Worked initially.
  • Cons: Died after two months. Can't recover the data that was on it. This is not the first time that a large USB stick sold in 2015 has just died after substantive use. I was sent a 64GB stick that died in 3 weeks. I'm using a 2+ year-old 6GB stick to transfer files, which is a nuisance once or thrice a...

Disappointing junk

Jeff B., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I got these to use as cheap boot drives to install operating systems.. but they're so slow and flaky that I don't even want to use them.
  • Pros: Retractable Connector, Cheap (not necessarily a pro)
  • Cons: Not reliable, no activity indicator, lanyard loop is so tiny it's worthless, feels flimsy... outperformed by several other USB 2.0 drives I own. Cheap I ordered three of these, two of them work and one was DoA. The first time I connected it to the USB port, the computer restarted immediately... f...
