ADATA DashDrive UV128 32GB Flash Drive Model AUV128-32G-RBE
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Is it Going Bad? 06/10/2015

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive UV128 32GB Flash Drive Model AUV128-32G-RBE

Pros: Price and size are right

Cons: Not sure yet ...

Other Thoughts: I've had it 2 months today. Plugged it in and it wasn't recognized. Tried another port, no better. Tried it in another computer & I was able to read the data. Back to the first computer & it started to copy the data, then quit. After awhile the sys tray notified me that a new device was recognized. I eventually copied all the data. Is it the computer or the AData? If the latter, it's out of warranty. Hope it's neither the thumb drive nor the computer.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Worked with no intervention. Fast. Tested it for a few days with Memtest86+ and with MemTest for Windows and it works as it should: perfectly with no errors.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I read over all the reviews first. Chose this one and am pleased.

StarTech PATA2SATA3 Bi-directional adapter converts IDE to SATA or SATA to IDE
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Versatile: plug an IDE (aka PATA) drive into your SATA mobo, or a SATA drive into your IDE mobo

Cons: For the latter (SATA into IDE mobo connector), it means only 1 drive instead of 2.

Other Thoughts: Wish it had an IDE gender changer so it could plug into an IDE connector on the cable, instead of having to remove the cable and plug into the mobo IDE connector, losing BOTH devices. If you have 2 HDs & 2 CD/DVDs, you'll need to decide which to keep, possibly rejumper or use HD & DVD on same cable, slowing HD down.
Also, remember that a SATA drive plugged into this device will be running at IDE (OK, UDMA at best) speeds, and an IDE plugged in here to a STA port, still can't go faster than IDE speeds (SATA II is 3Gbps, UDMA is rarely over 0.133Gbps)
