Pros: Sturdy case, clean, solid design, and works exactly as intended. Quiet fan. Best tech support I've run into on the consumer side in at least ten years.
Cons: Door latch problem on first unit, but the support experience was so good I'm almost glad it happened. Yeah, seriously.
Other Thoughts: Had a problem with the first unit - drive wasn't recognized. Found out I needed AHCI mode and the reg. hack for Win7 to autodetect AHCI vs. IDE again, and boot in AHCI mode properly. Still no luck, so I filled out the little support form on the page. Later *that night*, maybe 8:30pm, I got a call from ICYDOCK. Support guy I talked to chatted me up like a normal peer, went back and forth over some troubleshooting thoughts - no script-reading, no first-line crud, no poor accents, just a very sharp engineer treating me like a fellow human being solving a problem. At a loss for words how refreshing that is. I'd forgotten that companies even used to do that. Long-story short, RMA and they actually repaired the unit I sent and provided the cause on the receipt! Turns out the door-close lever in back was just subtly bent and was allowing the door to close, but preventing the drive from seating fully. Anyway, I'll be recommending them far and wide...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADATA 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model S805 8GB
Pros: Sturdy, unique case with a nice carabiner design.
Cons: First unit was completely DOA. The RMA process was relatively quick and painless, so I was prepared to give a pass. Fast forward less than a year, put a whole bunch of important data on the drive - complete drive-not-even-recognized-dead-as-rock failure within two weeks. Same as the first, except taking my data with it this time.
Other Thoughts: Will never purchase so much as a sticker from A-Data again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADATA Nobility 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Gray) Model AS805-16G-CGY
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.READ FULL REVIEW
