Not as good as it looks 04/28/2011
This review is from: ADATA S101 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model AS101-16G-RBK
Very small. Decent price for 16GB and retractable. You get what you pay for, they just misrepresent it as more.
I'm seeing 8-9MBps on a transfer of assorted docs/pdfs/pics to the device.
Doesn't look and feel nearly as good as it does in the pictures. The picture has a leather look, and the description says "leather-like texture." So, I assumed a pleather or some kind of fake fabric. Nope. It's cheap plastic, the whole thing is two plastic pieces molded into that shape, then snapped together around the memory stick. It has a light, cheap and hollow feel to it. My coworker said it felt cheap, that was her first comment.
I originally gave it 3-4 stars for this. I expected excellent, and it was average. Then I noticed if you search for pictures, the pictures they provided were clearly photoshopped or doctored. When you look at the back of the stick, with the connector extended, you see all the round imperfections or whatever, from when they removed the plastic from the mold. The picture doesn't show them. They're not a big deal at this pricepoint, I'm just annoyed they tried to hide it. That drops my view of it from a 3-4 to a 2.
