I just placed my order for $8.59 + tax AR. You may have not applied the promo code: EMCXVWS29

Why won't the Newegg mobile app accept the promo codes? I've had this problem before.

don't count on getting your rebate

They will do anything to deny your claim

avalon 02-15-2013 05:52 AM

Are these actually faster because of usb 3.0 ? Or is that just a gimmick?

elsporko321 02-15-2013 05:55 AM

Missed the last good flash drive deal to double my music capacity in my car. In for one - thanks!

skizzz 02-15-2013 05:56 AM

Some are just gimmick, but this one actually reflects the higher USB 3 speeds.
Just check the newegg reviews.

In for one.

And i don't know where you got your info, Newegg customer service is awesome.
Been building boxes with their parts, since way back when they were Egghead.com.
Even worked w customer service to apply rebates past their expiration.

EDIT: The code only works for one order and one order only.
I did contact customer service and they have the ability to credit back the rebate if you add a new order later on. Just FYI

blahbooboo2 02-15-2013 06:02 AM

Wish the 32gb model was on sale. Oh well, at this price will just grab one as have needed a larger USB key for a while (the old 2gb I have is slow and small)

LiquidRetro 02-15-2013 06:31 AM

Picked one up, since my house seems to eat these things like candy .

dagadu 02-15-2013 06:36 AM

The cap kills the deal. i wish it was capless.

shaftnjc 02-15-2013 06:39 AM

i have one of these, i get about 100MB/s read and around 25MB/s write in real world usage, not benchmarking. like i actually copy huge files to it and just see the transfer rate in Windows.

anyways, i also tried to use this drive as a bootable Windows 8 image but for some reason it refused to boot :( still a good drive though

A lot of motherboards don't have USB 3.0 drivers in the BIOS, which is why the drive isn't recognized in the preinstallation environment. USB 2.0 is still the go-to for boot/imaging as a result.

OT that performance seems...like usb 2.0. Is this the reason why these are always on sale?

dooboo 02-15-2013 06:57 AM

What? No HDMI support on this?

Oh well, in for 1, even though this is doesn't support HDMI. :P

Good find OP, as I missed last deal.

I've hardly had any problems with any rebates over the last 15 years. Couple of companies went out of business before paying me, but that was a million years ago. Oh, and my utility (who will remain nameless because its PG&E) likes to reject perfectly good rebates, and they won't pay no matter what you do to them.

I have a feeling that people don't fill out the forms correctly or put the wrong materials in the submission, and thats the cause of most rebate failures.

In any case, I checked all 200-something newegg reviews and only one of them said he was still waiting on the rebate 3 months later, while one other said he'd finally gotten it after 3 months. Most of the rebates I've done this past year came pretty fast, maybe people are getting used to 4-6 weeks and those 3 month ones seem like they aren't coming.

I've also noticed recently rebates have come a LOT quicker than they used to. I only had to wait 2-3 weeks for rebates about a month ago. (That was without selecting the no wait option)

rxblitzrx 02-15-2013 09:11 AM

Just FYI

I got this same usb key with the same rebate about two months ago. Rebate came in and the usb key is super fast. As mentioned, the only down-side is that it has a cap that can get lost easily. However, the cap does snap onto the back of the key. It's worth noting that the key is very slim which is something to consider when plugged into tight spaces on the sides of laptops.

I've been highly satisfied with mine and would consider getting another one as a gift.

Max write speed is 25mb/sec.. Not so good if you'll be writing a lot of files often..
Read speed is fast though :)

I tend to lose the cap most of the time and bend the USB head somehow. Some USB are using slide mechanism instead of using cap to protect the USB head, such as sandisk usb, PNY, or others. Without its cap, USB head is easily bend.

Weird. I've got about two dozen usb sticks, some of which I've had for a long time. Never bent or broke the head off of one. Hate the capless ones, because they all try to retract when you stick them in. I'll take the ones with the cap, although I always throw the cap out. Easier to stick in the slot.

By the way, anyone else want to slap up the people who invented usb, since you can sit there trying to stick the thing in the right way for 10 minutes and it'll pretend its upside down, then when you pull the device out so you can see the slot, it drops right in? The guys who spec'd hdmi at least got the easy insertion part right. :lol:

demn 02-15-2013 03:50 PM

It's in stock, again ;)

timbertop 02-15-2013 03:50 PM

Confused by Adata model numbers? Make sure that you are shipped the shorter 100/25 MB/s
AS102P-16G-RGY could be either "Value-Driven" or "Superior" Series
100 MB/s/ 25MB/s Write or 68/18?
Pro or non pro?
All have the same model number.
Best i.d. is testing but the shorter vrs is supposed to be the newer faster one. No consistency on sku/specs with some "Superior" and "Pro" showing the slower speed.

I already have one of these but it's a great deal, and a great product. Much faster than my last drive.

coolstorm92 02-18-2013 07:19 PM

I bought one of these last time this deal was on. They denied my $5 rebate stating I did not purchase during rebate period (which I clearly did). In addition the drive sucks. It has broken on me in a way that transfers are very slow and unreliable on all PCs. I wouldnt buy at any price.

It was delivered today. I do not have USB3.0. Even though USB2.0, it's not bad as I attached .jpg.
I formatted it to exFAT immediately. It works fine but, I experience a problem. I have a laptop and a desktop PC. It worked with both PCs for a while. Suddenly The desktop did not detect it when I put it into the USB port. Even disk management window, the USB drive is not shown on the list. Then I went to following link.
http://www.adata-group.com/index....=ss_usbdiy
Before I run ORU.exe, it fixed automatically. I do not know why!!:confused:
I suppose this USB drive is like a picky guy!!:O

Sammich 02-21-2013 02:13 AM

whats the xfer speed supposed to be? Im maxing out at 21ish MB on my file transfers. Is that USB 3 speeds?

How much usable space is on yours? Mine came with only 14.7 gb which is lower than any of my other 16gb sticks. After formatting Im down to 14.6
Ive seen reports of 15-15.3 gb

Seems fast though, not sure if its reliable

Can anyone upload a fillable mir, please?

1BadBoy 02-21-2013 02:22 PM

Silly Question Probably
 
Doing my rebate. Back of package has 2 UPC labels. One with the word "UPC" and one with the part number on it. Their sample UPC shows the part number, but their description says to send UPC.

What are others including in the rebate submission?

kuripot 02-21-2013 02:24 PM

I'm going to send in the one that looks like the sample. Best thing to do is to call the rebate center, I had to do that with my last mir for a TD rebate. If you do call please let us know what you find out.
