ADATA DashDrive UV100 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model AUV100-8G-RBK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Good price, terrible write speed... 03/05/2015

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive UV100 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model AUV100-8G-RBK

Pros: Cheap, small. seem decently sturdy for my use.

Cons: Ordered 3 of these, each drive took an incredible amount of time to be initialized when plugged into my Vantec powered USB hub. When they finally did, each drive reported errors and had me scan them. Even then the write performance on these is really poor. Figured maybe there is some incompatibility with the USB chip on my computer so I tried them in another machine with the same results. Seriously abysmal write speed.

I have several other ADATA USB drives all have no issue, so I guess these are just a bad batch since all 3 show the same problem.

Stay away from this model...

Other Thoughts: Using them to keep operating system images for installs so I don't have to carry discs around. I am in the process of testing an install out with these now so I can't comment on the read speed, but if it is anything like the write speed... Oh boy.

CORSAIR CSM Series CS650M 650W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It is a Corsair... I have used these exclusively for years and never had any operational issues with them. Solid performance and clean power.

Cons: The cabling on these type 3 units from Corsair are not very accommodating if you have a case that mounts the PSU at the top, the SATA cables will be in the wrong direction... I know I can remove the caps and flip the connectors but I don't think I should have to mess with a new PSU for that when the solution would simply be to provide at least one cable for top mounted installs.

Two eggs come off just cause I have to mount the HDs upside down now so the cable can reach the top of the case.

Just so I am clear the thing functions just fine like I have it installed, just looks kinda fugly to have the drives upside down...

D-Link DUB-H7  USB 2.0 7-Port Hub -  (2) iPad/iPhone/Smart phone Fast Charging Port  (5) USB 2.0 Hub & Power adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lots of USB ports.

Cons: Ports work sometimes and don't work other times, as many of the other reviewers have stated the thing constantly connects and reconnects devices and it self with nothing plugged into the hub on my desktop PC.

I also have a second of these D-Link hubs that I use with a Surface Pro… One night when I plugged it into the Surface I heard a pop and the backlight on the screen went dead. Not realizing that it was the HUB I sent the Surface back for replacement. Got the new Surface Pro and plugged the HUB in. The whole device froze. Had to hard reset. That's when I realized that the HUB is the problem and probably what caused the backlight to short. I then tested the USB port on the new Surface pro and discovered that nothing is now recognized in the UBS port. This hub killed two tablets...

Other Thoughts: I got two bad hubs from D-Link, one destroyed a tablet another is whacked out.

Not touching another D-Link USB product again.
