This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Elite UE700 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model AUE700-16G-CBK
Pros: Write and Read speeds are average to fast. In 7 months, I've almost never had to wait longer than 30 seconds for folders [near 7 GB folders, mind you] to load all contents. Copying files to the flash drive is entirely proportionate to what you'd expect it to be, that 7 GB folder [which I'll say were Osu! beatmaps, for anyone curious enough] took probably around 10 minutes, give or take, to write, but that's to be expected.
USB 3.0. A 3.0 plug further increases read/write speed, and its nice to find a flash drive with USB 3.0 that's not outrageously priced, as some are.
Retractable USB plug. I personally love the sliding feature of the USB's plug, and I would passively slide it excessively. In fact, the excess motion of it may have been what caused my only complaint.
Space offered is great for the price.
Nice, slick, look, at least when first purchased.
Cons: Only one complaint/warning. Cheap plastic makes up the exterior. It is not recommended to keep this USB on your keys and excessively play with the retractable plug. I can think of no other cause as to the plastic loop on the USB to have broken off and cause me to be unable to carry it with my keys, and instead have it loose in my pockets [this is no problem to people who carry around bags for things, but I'm a man and avoid keeping valuables in backpacks]. Another issue from the cheap but nice looking plastic is that the exterior of mine is now scratched up, the texture is fine, but the paint has been scratched off and looks very worn now, from merely being taken in and out of a pocket and touched whilst in said pocket.
Other Thoughts: All in all, very good for the price, and may be even extraordinary for the price, but I advise you to be careful with it if you buy it, as -- if you will -- it can dish out a lot of punishment, but can't take much.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked great when I started using it, about a week ago, which was a few months after I bought and received it (was waiting on gathering other parts for new computer). It ran mid-graphic games on high, and high graphic games on medium well. Everything was going great.
Cons: ...Until this morning(3-9-13), when I got up. I booted up my computer, and nothing seemed to appear for the bootup sequence on the monitor. I tried a couple of different things, then just used my monitor's integrated card and took out this one, and it booted up normally. So in simplicity, it worked great for a week, then died for no reason.
Other Thoughts: I'm really disappointed and bummed out because I thought this would be a just fine graphics card to use for how I was describing in the pros. But unfortunately not I guess...READ FULL REVIEW
