Conclusion: So, what have we been able to say about this product? It's fast, durable, stylish and it comes with great managing software. The design is overall very good and I'm not surprised at all that the S805 has gotten an honorable mention from the Reddot Design Awards. After testing the A-data's product I've become certain that the Kingston DataTraveler I use will be replaced by this stick. I can't think of anything bad to say about it, so the S805 is a clear editor's choice!
Pros: Stylish and durable with great capless design, Clearly faster than basic drives, Useful software included
Summary: The A-DATA S805 is by no means a speed demon. Sure, it manages very good - albeit a bit weird - read performance, but lacks the write speed of modern flash drives. Those who go for the S805 are clearly shopping for a stick which is durable and can easily be carried around on your key chain or hooked to your backpack. This unique aspect is more important than any performance. That said, this S805 is certainly recommendable in its own way.
Pros: Unique and practical shape, Very durable, Supports Vista ReadyBoost, Metal casing, Can be used as a key chain, Good read performance, Lifetime warranty, Available in two colors
Cons: Write performance is quite slow, Fairly expensive, No activity indicator LED
Conclusion: Het is een USB-stick waar je wel van merkt dat er over na is gedacht, de haak en het draai systeem is goed bedacht. De snelheid is gewoon gemiddeld, wat ook niet echt een plus of minpunt is. Het enige grote minpunt is dat deze USB-stick bijna niet te vinden is in Nederland. Waardoor je waarschijnlijk redelijk wat verzendkosten moet betalen.
Pros: de karbijnhaak;, geen dopje wat je kwijt kunt raken;, leessnelheid.
