I've been using this memory stick for about a month now. I also have a 16GB Verbatim Store `n' Go Pro and an 8GB Sony Micro Vault Pro USD8G (on Amazon: 8GB USB 2.0 Micro Vault Pro Autosync). The Sony actually contains a 1 inch hard drive inside (I believe, a Seagate 3,600 RPM), but in every practical sense, to me it behaves just like a regular USB stick flash drive. I have had these other two USB sticks for over 2 years now and they both still work excellent.
A-DATA - the Good:
* USB 3.0 means it should be much faster than the other two (I have not had a chance to try it in USB 3.0 mode).
* This USB stick is light weight, thin and narrow, a beautiful and sleek design.
* Transfer speed: I have Copied a folder of 6,511 MB size (containing about 40 sub-folders with a bunch of smaller wmv, doc, mp3, flv, pdf and jpg files) from a 10,000 RPM hard drive to the memory sticks and obtained the following Paste (Write) speeds:
A-DATA: 14.5 MB/sec
Verbatim: 7.3 MB/sec
Sony: 6.8 MB/sec
* My Windows XP recognizes it as ADATA UFD (H:) drive.
* Excellent price for the storage space and read/write speeds.
* Claimed lifetime warranty (limited) on parts and labour.
A-DATA - the Bad:
* Gets very warm (but not hot) while the computer stays turned on (doesn't matter if the stick is active or dormant), and stays lukewarm even while the computer is off. (My A-DATA stick permanently sits in a powered USB hub, but both the Verbatim and Sony stay cool to the touch under all conditions).
* There is no activity indicator light.
* It is about 1 inch longer than the Verbatim when inserted in the USB hub - sticks out about 3.5 inches.Read more ›
It is faster than USB 2.0 - 64MB/s write using 'hdparm -t' under Linux using a USB 3.0 port. In a USB 2.0 port I see 30 MB/s which is faster by about 40% than USB 2.0 drives in the same port.
The case does get warm, but it hasn't had any apparent effect on reliability.
It is a big drive. I'm not sure how much of the size is marketing to make it 'stand out' or required for engineering reasons.
My main gripe is the cap. It comes off too easily when the drive is carried in a bag. The 'storage' position on the other end of the drive is as solid as the normal position - it pops off too easily. If you put a lanyard into the provided hole then the cap can't be stored on the drive at all, so it's going to get lost! I much prefer a drive from which nothing can be detached.
Overall, a reasonable performer for the price, though more modern drives boast speeds twice as fast as the ADATA now.

I have had this flash drive for over 2 years and had no problems with it. Like most everyone else I'd lost the cap, and I'd noticed how warm it got while transferring files but it... Read morePublished 22 months ago by Tim

The usb plug itself is finicky. If you plug it right in like usual, it usually wont work. You have to jiggle it to just the right spot for the computer to detect it. Read morePublished 22 months ago by David Menzel
Used this drive for work for about 3 months -- it was nice and fast for moving big files off of my USB 3.0-equipped laptop -- then it died utterly, and without warning. Read morePublished on July 27, 2011 by Sean Wagstaff
