4 out of 5 eggsCheap 16GB Flash Drive

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)

Pros: Price - I purchased this drive because it was 16GB and inexpensive

Sliding Mechanism - I like USB drives with the sliding mechanism. I do not like caps. The sliding mechanism on this drive has a positive feel and strongly clicks into place for the retracted and extended positions. I have not had any problem with the connector collapsing into the case when inserting the drive into a USB port.

Cons: Performance - This drive really has no need for a USB3 interface. I tested the read and write performance of this drive using HDtune and received the following:

USB3 - Sequential Read: 37MB/s Sequential Write: 8MB/s
USB2 - Sequential Read: 33MB/s Sequential Write: 8MB/s

Other Thoughts: I expected better speeds from a USB3 drive. But then again it was really cheap, and I do like the slider on this drive. I'll just be sure to not use this drive when I need to copy something with any sort of haste.

1 out of 5 eggsBAD USB CONNECTORS - STAY AWAY

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Poorly made - cheap plastic construction. USB connector cracked on first use.

Other Thoughts: These USB drives have very cheaply and poorly make USB connectors. I have worked in IT for over 30 years, I've loved Newegg since they first started but have never had a problem like this. On it's first use the plastic around the USB connector cracked. I tried to return it to Newegg but since it was "physically damaged" they wouldn't accept it as a return. Selling faulty products, regardless of the problem should NOT be a reason for returns not to be accepted.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry that your UV128 is not working properly. Unfortunately, DOA does occur from time to time and that is why there is a warranty on our products that covers this issue. Please send it in for an RMA exchange and you will receive a working replacement. The ADATA RMA process is a simple and painless procedure. Please feel free to contact us directly.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)

Pros: Great high-capacity flash drive. been using for a month and have gotten transfer speeds of up to 150 MB/s, so anything under 50 MB doesn't even have a loading screen.

Cons: For reasons unknown to me, despite its default FAT32 formatting, this flash drive will not show up on a Playstation 3. Will update if I find a solution.

5 out of 5 eggsCost / Performace gets 5 stars

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)

Pros: Reasonable speeds for price.
Once tested and reformat - they work and last.
Thumb slide and case work well and are comfortable to use.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: For every day use these are great and have met my needs moving data, videos, and music.

Just a thought, I always do a full reformat on all storage media to ensure they work before adding my data. Over the years I have found several sticks and drives that failed the format and were replaced before adding and losing data - once they pass, they last forever. Also lets you replace under warranty without hassel. Just a thought.

1 out of 5 eggsNot very good

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)

Pros: Cheap. Low price.

Cons: No where near USB 3.0 speeds. Basically USB 2.0 speeds. Flimsy construction.

Other Thoughts: Inexpensive 3 pack from Newegg. Delivered fast. Could send in for RMA but the shipping would cost more than the drives did. These are basically USB 2.0 drives hawked as USB 3.0, and most customers will either use them as is or toss them. Once burned will never buy ADATA drives again.

3 out of 5 eggsAdequate but no indicator LED

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)

Pros: Simple USB stick. Works OK in USB 3.0 I did not do any real hard testing but saw > 50MBs on reads.
I like the one piece design; no cap to lose, but dirt can get into connector because it's not covered.

Cons: No indicator LED. I thought that was universal. Going to have to buy a couple of Samsungs.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Bootable

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow (AUV128-16G-RBY)

Pros: Seems to store files fine, and a fair clip -- time will tall (lots of reviews with tails of failure, down the road).

Cons: Not bootable. I bought several of these to use as bootable Linux drives, and they CANNOT be configured as bootable, PERIOD! No problem with the blue 16GB USB 3.0 ones, or the old red 16GB USB 2.0 ones, but the yellow 16GB ones just won't boot.

Other Thoughts: There's no excuse for marketing a thumbdrive that cannot be configured as a bootable drive. Walk away.
