This review is from: ADATA N005 Pro 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Gray) Model AN005P-32G-CGY
Very fast - operates at advertised speeds as long as it is formatted as FAT32.
Cap always falls off and WILL eventually get lost.
If there is a rebate, ADATA may try to rip you off.
First of all, drive is blazing fast when it is formatted as FAT32. If you format it as another file system (i.e., NTFS or exFAT), you will lose a lot of the speed. If I were basing this review just on the speed, it would be 5 eggs.
I bought this drive because there was a rebate, and I filled the rebate info out immediately. A few months later, I get a letter in my PO Box stating that they can't send the rebate check/card because it is a PO Box. Let me say that again - they sent a letter TO MY PO BOX saying that they couldn't send the rebate to my PO Box. So it looks like I got ripped off on the rebate. Very sneaky, ADATA. -2 eggs for this
Also, like others state, the cap comes off very easily and you will eventually lose it. I think I have lost the cap more times than I have actually used the drive, and now I think that it is probably in a parking lot somewhere. Just an overall bad design. -2 eggs for that.
Overall, this is a good flash drive, but I am hesitant to recommend it for the above reasons.
