5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: Love the spring loaded clip.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: 16 gigs of storage on my key chain. Good for transporting homework and programs.

It has been on my key chain for 7 months with no problems. I love it.

5 out of 5 eggs5 Years & Going Strong

Pros: Sturdy, very durable design. Long life. Carabiner is easy to clip to your key chain. Size is just right. No detachable parts to be lost. I've had this one for about 5 years.

Cons: Slow transfer speed. I'm not sure this matters to everyone, though. I save large Excel spreadsheets to it all the time. I save those to my computer very quickly. It typically takes up to 5 seconds to save to this flash drive.

Other Thoughts: It was easy to keep up with in college because I could leave it attached to my keys when using. Can't leave without those.

5 out of 5 eggsToughest drive ever

Pros: I love this drive. I've had it for over 2 years and it still works well. I have abused this drive more than I care to say. Among other things it has been through the wash, been dropped many, many times onto concrete, sat in my pocket with keys constantly, and most recently it spent almost 2 weeks outside in the woods when it fell out of my pocket while running.

Cons: The clip is not the strongest. I had the spring break after around 6-10 months. But that's not a big deal to me.

Other Thoughts: Some people have complained about data speeds. I haven't had a problem, but I also haven't run any tests to see how fast/slow it actually is.

If I ever need a new drive it will be this one (or another one like this with more storage).

5 out of 5 eggsADATA > the competition

Pros: -Made of Medal
-very durable (have had it on my key chain with my keys and still works after a year)
-At the time I bought it, it was very cheap compared to the ones you see in stores
-Not too small like some new sticks
-Use it on a daily basis and never had corrupt file errors

Cons: -Write speed is average compared to some hard drives I own, but the speed is fine for a flash drive.

Other Thoughts: If I ever get another flash it will probably we an ADATA, I would recommend this same model with more storage (like 64 gb)

5 out of 5 eggsNice feel, fast

Pros: Because of its metal design, it has a nice heavy feel. Great design with the clip and I've had fast transfer speeds. Makes for a great boot drive too.

Cons: Over time the USB part that flips out has loosened up so it now opens a little on it's own.

Other Thoughts: Take off of your keys before putting in the USB drive! This has caused extra stress and it has loosen up, but that was my own doing.
Overall, I'd buy again.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't trust it with my data

Pros: The physical design is great... it's basically the reason why I bought this drive. It's also quite physically sturdy.

Cons: The read/write speeds of the drive are quite slow.

In about a year and a half the drive became completely unreadable two different times, requiring multiple full formats each time to become functional again. I was sure to always eject the drive properly.

I had to ship the drive back for RMA at my own expense... who knows how the replacement will be.

5 out of 5 eggsDurable, Beautiful

Pros: High capacity, durable, chromed finish, carbine style. Most importantly, its one piece instead of the other thumbdrives that have a separate piece to protect the connectors. Highly recommended.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy based on brands, buy based on specs.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: Sturdy case.

Cons: The drive is very slow and data transfer rates are no where close to the ratings on the spec sheet. If you enjoy spending your life watching a blue bar go across the screen while moving data this drive is for you. My first drive died after three month and all data was lost. Adata replaced the drive with a new one which has now died at about three months of use and again all my personal data has been lost. I have sent further requests to Adata to replace the second drive (still within the warranty) but repeated attempts have failed to get any response from them.

Other Thoughts: If you own one of these back up you data. A rating of zero is not allowed.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer, we are sorry that you have had difficulties with our product and service. Please contact our office and let them know about your experience: Phone: 1-888-962-3282 x604; Email: support@adatausa.com. One of our support members will notate this case for you, we will also forward this comment to appropriate department.

1 out of 5 eggsSTONE COLD DEAD

Pros: Very cool design, love the carabiner clip and sturdy case construction.

Cons: Absolutely DEAD AS A BRICK. Not even recognized as a USB device by *five* different, modern systems - zero response.

Other Thoughts: Very expensive for a keyring.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer, we are sorry that you have had difficulties with our product. Please contact our office we have two low level formatting tools, this will repair the USB to factory condition. ADATA customer service: Phone: 1-888-962-3282 x604; Email: support@adatausa.com. One of support staff members will be happy to assist you with your case.
