The ADATA C103 USB 3.0 Flash Drive surfs the growing wave of computers using the USB 3.0 interface. With mainstream USB 2.0 products having significantly reduced performance, are you still waiting for your files to slowly transfer? Don’t know which USB 3.0 drive to choose? The C103 USB 3.0 flash drive is an easy first step, with a retractable push-style connector and a conveniently located hole for straps. You can customize how it looks and how you carry it to best fit your lifestyle.

  • newegg Leap to Twice the Performance The C103 has read speeds up to 90 MB/sec and, write speeds up to 10 MB/sec, much faster than conventional USB 2.0 with nearly twice the read performance. The result is that you stay on the cutting edge of technology. *Based on testing with a built-in USB 3.0 slot; actual transmission speed will depend on platforms and software used.

1 out of 5 eggsSlower than USB 2.0

Pros: Has a cool little slide-out feature.

Cons: Slow.
Like, 400-1200kbps slow. Too slow for anything I'd be doing, both on windows and linux.

Other Thoughts: I think what they mean by "USB 3.0" is that it will fit in the same hole that a 3.0 uses.

4 out of 5 eggsworks

Pros: Copied linux image to the drive quickly enough, installed linux from that image quicker than any OS install I've ever done. I don't care about how many nanoseconds it took to transfer files, all I know is it was faster than the old usb 1.0 drives I've been using. Booting a live session from the drive was fairly responsive, dare I say usable.

Cons: drive feels flimsy, drive has a place to attach a lanyard but none was included.

2 out of 5 eggsGo pro, but not with this

Pros: -Decent Capacity
-Decent Price

Cons: -Slower than USB 2.0

I tested these with my USB-3.0 capable mobo, and was horribly disappointed. While the 3.0 got an average of 6MB/s, the 2.0 got an average of 8MB/s. Used in conjunction with multiple test trials, compared to multiple USB-2.0 devices, reading and writing the same files, using multiple file systems.

Other Thoughts: This is purely speculation, but I think they just plastered "USB 3.0" on the side, and painted it blue. For an extra dollar, get 5 times the performance.
