ADATA DashDrive UV128 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model AUV128-128G-RBE

1 out of 5 eggs Not recognized in USB 3.0 port, poor support 03/23/2015

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive UV128 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model AUV128-128G-RBE

Pros: 128GB

Cons: Not recognized when plugged into USB 3.0 port, poor support

Other Thoughts: I purchased this on sale in December for future use. I popped it in to a (more conveniently located) USB 2.0 port and it seemed to work fine. I finally got around to the real reason for the purchase (backup) and it is not recognized when plugged into a USB 3.0 port. Mind you, it's not that it's slow, it's not there. Windows 7 called it an "unrecognized device" and Linux, using the lsusb command, got the device ID right, but nothing else came up.

So I sent it in for warranty. Adata seemed OK, everything went along fine, then I got my replacement it. This was a different device (I don't care, but the blue one I bought was replaced by a yellow one) with the same exact problem. Only worse - Windows 7 still shows it as an "unrecognized device" but Linux doesn't even register it under lsusb. I have another request in with Adata about this.

I don't mind playing ping-pong with Adata over this thing until the end of time, but I don't want to pay postage on it any more. I did my bit, but they sent me something that failed first time out. Not acceptable.

Needless to say, this will not be a backup device (how can I trust it?) but it can serve (if it ever gets fixed) as a high speed high capacity non-critical file transporter.

5 out of 5 eggs Great PSU for low demand build 03/10/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Inexpensive, quiet, works

Cons: SATA connector seems cheap, only one floppy connector (two would have been nice), could use more 4-pin and SATA connectors also. But for the price, I can't knock off an egg.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these in the past few months. Both times they were on sale and had a rebate - total cost about $20 each. The first one was for my father's PC, and it's been running great no issues whatsoever. The second one is for an older PC I'm playing with (how old? It has ISA slots). On that PC, part of the plastic on one SATA connector broke off. I MAY have been handling it a bit too rough since it was a tight squeeze. I'm using a 4-pin to SATA adapter I had lying around for now and the drive runs fine. I'll probably put in some sort of SATA extension (from the broken connector) at some point. Or else a splitter from the unbroken one.

With a rebate, I wouldn't hesitate to use this on a low end build.
