They just arrived, they are more than twice as fast as earlier generations of ADATA USB 3 flash drives!
When I copy paste I see speeds like I see on Samsungs, like 70 MB/s.


I wonder if the current yellow and blue models have different chips or just color variation...


Correction. Interesting trickery:
So this drive displays transfer speeds similar to Samsung's when copy/pasted HOWEVER:
It copies PAUSES copies PAUSES so it appears that it is transferring at 70MB/s but with all the pauses - it is three times slower when you stop watch the total transfer time.

Not only that, it is about 15% slower than previous generation of ADATA which steadily transfers at 27 MB/s *without* PAUSES like this one.

Still a solid purchase for $4, but they must have inserted the PAUSE mechanism so it doesn't over heat?
