good price for USB 3 .........

ADATA steps up again with the pilot launch of its S102 series USB 3.0 flash drives. This series is the industry's first to incorporate native controller chip for flash products, demonstrating once again the company’s leadership role in the market. As ADATA brings the latest and fastest devices to the market soonest, our customers get to stand on the shoulders of a technological giant. So be the one of the first to use this new generation of superior technology.

Say Goodbye to USB 2.0
The USB 3.0 interface is becoming increasingly popular in the market, and we are listening to the voices of the early adapters who are eager to see this new standard incorporated into a wide range of products. This launch introduces the S102 USB 3.0 flash drive, which uses the native USB 3.0 controller chip, at an extremely competitive price. So stop watching USB 3.0 from the sidelines. The S102 gives you an undeniable reason to upgrade, and say an official goodbye to USB 2.0.

Fire up the Power of USB 3.0
The S102 has read speeds of up to 68 MB per second, and write speeds of up to 18MB, which is much more efficient than traditional USB 2.0 speeds. With nearly twice the read performance, you will ride the cutting-edge technology in all data transfer applications.

Note: For built-in USB 3.0 slots, the actual transmission speed will vary according to the platform, software, and technical differences. (Test results shown are based on a 32 GB product)

Titanium Grey Enhances your Dignified Style
In appearance, the textured aluminum casing sets off the titanium metal color of the drive. The crafted exterior incorporates both scientific and technological elements to present an appealing look. The cap can be conveniently clipped onto the back of the casing when the drive is in use, preventing loss.

Smart Power: The Means for Total Protection
Known for being top quality, with their remarkable performance and innovative designs, ADATA portable hard disk drives have more than “hard power” to offer, notably the most valuable software.

- The OStoGO tool assists you by converting your Microsoft Windows 7 Installation DVD to an ADATA portable storage device, providing you the convenience of being able to quickly install Windows 7 via USB booting without the need for an optical drive.
- The powerful UFDtoGo tool synchronizes data, e-mails and your Favorites, affording you true mobility.
- Norton Internet Security 2010 (60-day trial) safeguards your data from viruses and other harmful processes. Registering your ADATA product online gives you this protection for free.

Data Transfer Rate: Read (Max) - 68MB/s, Write (Max) - 18MB/s

Might be worth a purchase now I have got my transcend usb 3 card working by flashing it as an NEC brand card. Shame the stick is so long

USB 2.0 = 480MBps. Even if my 'B' is 8x your 'B' that's still 60MB/s.

My old 2GB USB 2.0 stick has a 10MB/s write speed.

So USB 3.0 @ 18MB/s isn't exactly great.

Maybe more expensive sticks are faster?

60MB/s is theoretical max so hardly traditional usb2 speeds.
'traditional' max usb2 speeds are more like 25-35MB/s so what they say is right.

yes pay more for more speed, sort of like for everything..
there is also that thing called read speed which gets a heavy boost.

My 4GB A-Data USB 2.0 drive writes at 20mb/sec and it's over 2 years old now. It was the fastest around at the time, so these seem a tad slow as they're no faster and not utilising any of the extra USB3.0 bandwidth.

Read Speed is good though, but for me, it's the write speed that's important as that's always the bottleneck.

bit of a duff comparison again.
if your old adata was fastest at the time it probably came with a premium price
if you want to pay a premium price and get over 60MB/s you can.

For fast writes try something like a Kingston Ultra; I get about 75MB/Sec writes but it did cost me roughly twice the price of this.

Hi, why'd you jump driver (or flash) and which driver exactly did you go for?

Thanks.

Looks like the Transcend uses the Renesas driver as virtually every other card with the NEC chipset (NEC have sold their operation to Renesas).

So not sure what the benefit is or what you think it is since you've not replied.

The latest Renesas (NEC) firmware I can find is v2.0.32.0 http://uk.transcend-info.com/support/dlcenter/Driver/RENESAS-USB3-Host-Driver-20320-setup.exe

The review itself is of the 16gb model and that came out at 20mb/s write (a little over the rated 18)

This review has an official spec sheet and lists the write for the 8gb model at only 11mb/s and 31 for the 32gb

Edited By: bob_hoskins on May 30, 2011 19:03: incorrectly identified as 8gb
