Product Description

Capacity: 16 GB | Color: Black/ yellow

The sleek design features a sliding USB connector, which smoothly extends from the drive at the push of a thumb. The capless mechanical design eliminates the hassle of lost drive caps. The USB connector can be made ready for use with just one hand, for greater convenience when speed is a must.

Works great for backing up data and other files.
David J Marchner
Major plus for having no end cap to lose, and the retractable connector stays put when sticking into the USB port.
A. Wong
I definitely notice the speed difference compared to the USB 2.0 flash drives.

This ADATA DashDrive may not be the fastest USB 3.0 drive out there, but according to speed tests using SpeedOut 0.5 and Check Flash 1.16, it is as fast as claimed in the specs (when plugged into a USB 3.0 connector):

Read / Write
41.52 / 18.41 (MB/s)

The DashDrive's READ performance slows down significantly when inserted in USB 2.0 Port, but WRITE speeds remain about the same:

Read / Write
25.97 / 17.32 (MB/s)

The numbers held up when I copied over 2GB of JPGs to DashDrive.

The housing is all plastic, so it's not as sturdy as the extruded aluminum models out there. On the other hand, it's not nearly as expensive either. The capless design is a plus (no caps to lose). On the negative side, the plastic bar provided for a keyring is rather thin and delicate-looking.

Bottom line for me is that the ADATA DashDrive UV128/16GB provides a good amount of storage, in a convenient capless package, that is reasonably fast, for not a lot of money.

If you need a faster (but more expensive) flash drive, take a look at the Sandisk Extreme USB 3.0.

I work in IT for my line of work and these work fantastic. The 16G is a perfect size and for $12.99 (how much they were when I made the purchase) is a steal considering they are USB 3.0. UPDATING YOU ON 10/04/2013 : I just noticed these are now $10.79. . .buy these that is a great price.

The quality of the product is fine, nothing made of metal, aluminum. It is made of plastic making it light weight. You do not need a USB to be indestructible, unless you're planning on dropping this device (which can happen but, shouldn't).

I use these both for work and personal for mostly a bootable usb and it works great! the read and write speeds are always going to be better than USB 2.0 I appreciate speed so I chose these because they're less than $15.00 and they're USB 3.0.

UPDATE ON 10/04/2013: Also they're backward compatible if you need to put one into a usb 2.0 port. With my line of work I work on several types of laptops and computer desktops of all types of models that work fine running OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.5, Mavericks beta, Windows 7 professional and Windows 8 (have not tested Windows 8.1 for it yet). The usb stick will read for all of these OS's that I have been able to test. If you laptop/ computer does not read it make sure the usb is not formatted in a way that the OS cannot read it and ensure your drivers for the usb on your machine are up to date.

I have no problem at all when using these for boot stick placing them into a usb 2.0.

I know it is supposed to be faster when used in a 3.0 port but even if you don't have any 3.0 ports, it is still a good bit faster when used in a 2.0 port. I've had a dozen 2.0 thumb drives and this drive is an easy 30% faster than my fastest 16 gig 2.0 drive when used in the same 2.0 port.

This is a great product. Forget about the normal capability it has. They are the same for any type of flash drive.
Read this one.

I had it in my pant's small pocket. Forgot to take it out. Put the pant into washer and washed it. Then put it in dryer and dried it. I had lot's of file in it and they are all there. I can open them and all the data are there.

Color Name: Blue/BlackSize Name: 64 GB
I have three of the Adata USB 3.0 drives and none of them work correctly...They work fine in USB 2.0 ports but won't even load in 3.0 ports..,The S107 32Gb was the first to go...then both of the UV128s. I am a sys admin and am constantly moving files and doing bulk transfers and by comparison USB 2.0 is glacial compared with USB 3 so this is a bit more than just an annoyance. This is in a fairly new HP Pavilion, and a new Asus laptop...As I said the drives will load and work in a USB 2.0 but are unrecognizable in a USB 3.0 port...Meanwhile other USB 3.0 drives load and work fine...

Writing is just a little faster than USB 2 but Reading is very fast. The only thing that I do not like is it can't be on the key chain.
