We are offering you the test data on over twenty USB flash drives with a storage capacity of 2 gigabytes. This is not a record-breaking capacity, but it remains demanded due to its rather low price. After all, do you really need to carry more data with you often?
Besides the new models, we have also included test data for a few flash drives we tested earlier into the tables and diagrams in order to see if the new products have progressed in terms of performance.
Now let’s meet our testing participants.
This drive has an original design optimized for wearing on your key-ring, but it’s hard to grasp its small sleek case with your fingers. The connector doesn’t stick out far from the case, and the PD17 may prove to be incompatible with your PC case if its USB connectors are somewhat sunken into the face panel.
The drive lacks an activity indicator.
Dimensions: 36.4 x 25.6 x 5.7mm; weight: 4.2g.
This flash drive with a very interesting opening mechanism is also one of the smallest. The PD19 has a rather simple design and is easy to work with, but its case doesn’t look robust to us. It can be used even if the external casing is damaged, though. There is no activity indicator on the case. The drive comes without accessories.
Dimensions: 35.1 x 18.5 x 3.4mm; weight: 2.5g.
A-Data T730 "Something like Mickey. With the memory"
The flash memory is what differentiates this Mickey from the original. What’s similar between them is the shape – a head with two ears. One ear is detachable and has a USB connector. It is actually the flash drive. The rest of the device is just a decoration (and serves as a cap for the USB plug).
The tiny mirror in the case can be used for its main purpose or you can put a photo under its window, but neither function is impressive due to the tiny size.
That’s an unusual design overall.
The Mickey comes with a small metallic chain in a large cardboard box.
Dimensions: 39.7 x 45.7 x 28.4mm; weight: 18.5g.
