So ADATA is updating their USB flash drives. Their last-gen series already where an impressive stick with high speeds, but times change. Integrating USB 3.0 together with leading edge technology that's new ground to cover alright.
So you thought 50MB/s USB 3.0 write speeds were hot? The folks at ADATA released a product sporting capacities up to 128GB, boasts a single four channel controller with 180MB/s read and 90MB/s write speeds. Ooh and it will fit in your hip pocket, or wherever the ladies hide their stuff.
The drives uses four multiple channels for it's data transfer to get the most out of 3.0, delivering real high speeds even for large sequential file transfers. Simple yet stylish, a black and blue theme rounds off the picture. So then, let's have a peek at the specs and features.
- USB 3.0 interface (backwards compatible)
- Shock absorbent (up to 15G)
- Also available as USB 2.0 version
- 4-channel technology
- Up to 180 MB/s reading & 90 MB/s writing
- Weight: 19.5g
- 10 year data retention
- Lifetime warranty
The N005 Pro is probably the better USB 3.0 flash drives from ADATA. The N005 Pro is available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage capacities. The design of N005 Pro is quite slim for USB flash drives.
Oh and ADATA offers you a lifetime warranty on this product as well, nice.
A tiny bit bothersome is the fact that the stick does not have any activity LEDs.
ADATA recently released a USB stick, all 3.0 compatible and it's called the N005 Pro from their Nobility series of products. We test the 64GB version of this model, and their N005 Pro is fast for USB flash storage alright, the little fracker can get you read performance of 180MB/sec peaks while writing just under 90 MB/sec.
