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.

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.

1 out of 5 eggsThese fail in droves!!!!

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

Pros: I really wanted to like these but can find no real positives

Cons: High failure rates!!!!

Other Thoughts: I have about 20 of these both of the yellow and blue versions. I struggle to find a working one when using Rufus to create OS installation boot drives. Probably fully 30+% of them do not function, have dead cells and are not useful. I switched to other brands and all my issues are gone. It does not matter if I am on a PC or Mac, these drives are a huge waste of time and money. Once I factor in the wasted time and lost data, a $5 savings on one of these has turned into a $50 loss. Do yourself a favor and buy another brand.

2 out of 5 eggsUnrealiable

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

Pros: - Cheap. Great for small and minimal use
- Super fast speeds

Cons: -get corrupted way too fast. Removing it safely
-the drive becomes unreadable and you lose your data
-unreliable and never know if you just ejected from the computer and it failed

Other Thoughts: - Contacted ADATA support, they gave told me to use a tool to repair my drive from being unrecognizable, it worked, but what's the point of repairing it if the drive is not unreliable and I going to lose my data each time. Then the Flash Drive failed again.
- I use the flash drives heavily and daily. Constantly boot from and re-image PCs. I purchased 7 of different sizes. I have already had 3 fail, 2-16GB and 1-32GB model. If you plan to use it just for small school projects, make sure you have both backups.
- Cannot rely on them if you plan to use the flash drive at a meeting and it doesn't work..
- Sending the Flash Drives back for replacement costs as much as the new ones since they are so cheap, they don't pay for shipping .
