So ADATA has been updating and overhauling their USB flash drive line. Their last-gen series already where an impressive stick with high speeds, but times change. Integrating USB 3.0 together with multi-channel technology that's new ground to cover alright.
The S107 offers a new approach to shock-resistant designs and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interfaces, with a modern and energetic look.
Targeting the modern crowd with an on-the-go and mobile lifestyle, the S107 combines a looks with military grade shockproof and water-resistant construction as well.
The S107 drive exterior is constructed of silicone rubber, providing reliability, making it ideal for traveling and excursions. Users need not worry about data loss from accidental drops or spills, which can cause irreparable damage in conventional storage devices.
In performance terms, the S107 utilizes the new generation USB 3.0 transfer interface, achieving read speeds of up to 100 MB/s. Compared to a standard USB 2.0 device, back up of data files is three times faster, with enhanced performance significantly reducing transmission time by 70%.

Oh and ADATA offers you a lifetime warranty on this product as well, nice.
It's time for another stick drive review here at Guru3D.com, well a USB 3.0 stick that is. The storage unit is all USB 2.0 and 3.0 compatible and it's called the S107 from ADATA's 'SUPERIOR' series of products. We test an easy to carry around 16GB version of this model. This flash drive will get you read performance of roughly 100MB/sec peaks while writing just under 25 MB/sec.
