Dont Last Was formatted as XFAT, and I could not put files of the size I needed on the drive.Reformatted as NTFS.Connected to an I7 based PC I built in 2009, which I believe has USB2 ports, I got a sustained read rate of 30MB/s moving two video files of 50G and 5G. The writing rate for similar sized files was almost exactly the same.If there is such a thing as a tactile aesthetic, the slider really doesn't meet my wishes. I would prefer an easy slide back and forth with some sign of an engagement at either end of travel other than hitting the stops. But, in their defense it works just fine and at extend it stays there. If you are going to work the slide a lot you may want to consider another brand as there is a noticeable friction in its movement. Just think of a plastic toy and you already have 90% of the experience.I don't know why but the metal insertion part is much cooler after transfers relative to other flash drives I use.No comments on durability because I haven't had it long and I carry my drives in a pouch where they are quite well protected from any physical force. I connect them at the start of the work day and remove them at the end. That's all.I chose 4 stars because of the price point vs the functionality and transfer speed. I will certainly consider this brand in the future if it continues to work.I lowered this review to three stars because I bought two of them, and one failed within a month of use. It wouldn't be recognized at all. I tried it in various machines, even removed the PCB from its casing and hit little parts of it with freeze spray to see if I could get it to work long enough to recover the data. Nothing. Didnt want to send it in for warranty because if it ever did work again it has personal information on it. So I threw it away. I hope the other one keeps working. So far it does.I lowered this review to 1 star! The other one failed. Wont be buying any "Adata" branded products going forward. 1As fast as claimed, good value for money 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 / Write41.52 / 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 / Write25.97 / 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. 4Taught little cookie I got this USB more than two years ago because I needed color-coded USB with retractable connector. This was cheap, fast enough for capacity and surprisingly sturdy. Mechanism is still as good as it was the first day. Speed is not fantastic but it's not dreadful either - realistic write speeds are in 20 MB/s range while read went to 70 MB/s. Considering 8 GB capacity, that's rather OK.There are smaller USB drives, there are faster USB drives, but I haven't seen any USB drives with retractable mechanism as good as this.The only downside is that it comes in only two colors - blue and yellow. A few more would make it ideal for color-coded storage (e.g. install USB where each OS gets another color).Also, cannot be used as food for sheep. 5Great Flash Drive for The Price But With Caveats First of all, I don't want this review to be entirely about what is wrong with this flash drive so I will start on the positives. For the price, this flash drive works well, very well. While I personally did not provide read and write speeds unlike other reviewers, in day-to-day use, this flash drive is more than capable for normal tasks. Now, one disappointing aspect of this flash drive is that for some weird reason it cannot support booting from the USB. I tried booting my computer from various live USB images of various Linux distributions but everytime I tried, I just got a black screen and I couldn't boot from the USB. I tried different flash drives and the other flash drives worked. I then concluded that the problem was not with my computer but rather the ADATA flash drive. It is not a serious deal-breaker since most of the ISO images from Linux distributions I use are less than 2 GB and my other flash drives can suffice. However, in cases where a Linux distribution ISO is more than 2 GB, the ADATA flash drive won't boot from the USB.Other than that minor issue (which most people would probably not use their flash drives for) this is a solid flash drive. Personally, I would recommend this only if a person doesn't want to use this ADATA flash drive as a live USB. Once again, other than the fact that it is cannot be used as a live USB in my case, it is a solid flash drive. 4Unreliable I own maybe 20 of these. Use them to archive things like Windows and Linux installers and live operating systems. Had 5 or 6 fail in use. Drive goes blank and in a Windows machine constantly loops on "please insert..."ADATA has a tool that will salvage the drive and make it usable again but all data is lost. I'd like to trust these but can't. My archives based on these are probably not reliable. Will try some other brand and give these away. Very disappointing. 1I'm holding my breath. I ordered and received two of these. I used 4 gig of one to save a large installation program. A couple of hours later I decided to use the other flash drive for the same thing. While copying onto the second drive, my copy stopped, citing invalid media. Win10 then started asking me if I would like to format the drive. I could not make the drive work. I could not format it. I decided to plug the first drive in and make sure the data was still there. Ack, I almost immediately ran into the same issue. I went to ADATA's web page, hoping to file a warranty claim. I had to register to do anything on that page. I did find a recovery utility on their web page, which I downloaded. This program was clumsy and took a long time, but it did salvage the drives. The recovery program could not reformat the two drives, but Win10 was able to. I've since used both drives as I originally intended and they seem to work. I'm just wondering if they'll keep working. 3Fairly standard cheap USB 3 flash drive As many other reviewers, I am using this for installers and disposable low-priority purposes. As far as drives of this type, it performs typically... it does better with large files, sequential transfers, and more poorly with writing files and smaller file sizes.I tested with the drive plugged directly into a USB 3.0 port. The drive maxed out around 105 MB/s, which is a bit slow, but not unusual. It crawls with extremely slow files. Based on the manufacturing, I expect that the drive would not last forever, and might fail easily, but I haven't tested or encountered this yet. 2We have purchased numerous yellow flash drives in varying sizes ... We have purchased numerous yellow flash drives in varying sizes. While we have been using Adata drives for quite some time without issue, over the last approximately six months, we have a large number of the yellow flash drives fail. They may work initially, but after a short period of time, the drive becomes inaccessible. It cannot even be reformatted at that point. The failure rate is so high that we no longer use these to provide data to clients. I haven't paid attention to the specific size that has been failing, however, it is the yellow series. 1Failed after 2 months of light use, RMA *ALSO* failed after 2 months of light use Purchased the 64GB UV128 in mid-February, drive failed mid-April. Plug it into XP or Win7 boxes, home and at work, the drive will recognize and try to install drivers then fail the install. All ports/machines that I tried other known good USB keys on work fine. Doesn't show up in windows disk management interface or in the DISKPART utility. Starting the RMA process with ADATA and will update review after (or if) that processes.Update: received warranty replacement 5/27/14 after email they received it on 5/15/14. Will see how well this one lasts. Upgrade to two stars for minimal hassle and reasonable turnaround (given proximity to holiday weekend) with RMA. Will raise to 3-4 if it makes it through another few months of use.Final Update: The replacement has now failed (07/24/2014) after two months of light use. I'm sensing a pattern. It again will not load in any machine I plug it into. On the first time I plug it into a Win7 machine it attempts to install drivers and fails. After that, I get the tone notifications when I plug it in and unplug it, but nothing else. I'm not sending another large quantity of company data to this manufacturer so they can RMA another piece of junk to me, I'm just destroying it and never purchasing from ADATA again. 1Great Card ! Great for the price. it is actually 14Gigs registered by Windows. for the purpose of a short review I will not explain why this is.It does not get 'Hot' like some other brands I have read reviews on. Design has this 'flip button' I don't like it, I must hold it to make sure it does not 'retract' when I plug it in. This is bad when you have to 'reach behind or around your device' to plug it in. The space to 'thread' a cord or keyring holder into the drive is Not large enough, I had to use thin speaker wire as a paper clip was too thick.I use it as a portable OS, as live ISO to troubleshoot with, and to use on low hardware machines on the go.Its Write speed on my android box is ~10 MB/s (80 Mbps), its Write speed on my Windows 3.0 Port is 22 MB/s. ***So for reference copying a 2Gig Linux Mint Cinnamon ISO on my USB 3.0 port took slightly over 2 minutes. and on USB 2.0 took twice as long.I'm OK with that, but if you are looking to use some of this storage as 'swap' and have a 3.0 port you might be fine. Otherwise better just use Mint Xfce desktop or LXLE as 2.0 speeds from this card are just about as fast as a 5200RPM HDD. 5
