ADATA Nobility N005 16 GB USB 3.0
16 May 2011
Summary: The ADATA Nobility N005 clocks in at a respectable 30 Euro, which places it right in the fray of things. With the mainstream USB 3.0 flash drive market still evolving, the N005 offers very good read performance and adequate write speeds when using the new interface. With USB 2.0 the drive is by no means the fastest and is still beat by high-performance USB 2.0 drives, but still offers a very good write performance of around 24 MB/s with this interface.
Pros: Good price / performance, Very good USB 3.0 read performance, Alright USB 3.0 write performance, Good USB 2.0 write performance, Sturdy slim construction, Available as 32 and 64 GB variants, Cap can be placed on rear end of devices
Cons: Slow USB 2.0 read performance, Write speed not as fast as advertised, Fairly long, Bulky packaging but no extras
Conclusion: I must admit, I can't do without a USB flash drives or pen drives these days. It's one of those devices that's so convenient and easy to use ... it makes life so much easier for copying, transferring and backing up data. I'm currently only using a 4Gb USB flash drive, and I find it more than plenty for my usage. So imagine my reaction when I got play with a 16Gb USB flash drive from ADATA ... it's 4 times the size of my current drive! What's even better ...
Conclusion: ADATAs Nobility N005 USB 3.0 Stick mit 16 GB Kapazität ist zwar deutlich teurer als vergleichbare USB 2.0 Sticks, dafür aber auch je nach Anwendungszweck spürbar schneller. Zudem stellt das Testmodell die derzeit günstigste Möglichkeit zum Einstieg in die performantere USB 3.0/ eSata Welt dar und bietet damit eine interessante Alternative.
