A-DATA PD7 4GB

This drive features a robust aluminum case with decorative black plastic pieces. The cap doesn’t snap in place, but sits down on the connector evenly and tightly – it can hardly slip off accidentally. Product-identifying information is printed on the case, so it’s easy to see what exactly device you are dealing with.

The manufacturer’s website says the PD7 flash drive series is made up by models with capacities of 1, 2, 4 and 8GB that have a max read speed of 30MB/s (200x) and a max write speed of 20MB/s (133x). The manufacturer claims the PD7 series is certified for use with Windows Vista and can be used together with ReadyBoost technology to speed up the PC. The flash drive supports USB 2.0. Its dimensions are 66 x 19 x 10mm; its weight is 15g.

You’ll find a USB cable included with the drive. If necessary, you can also visit the manufacturer’s website and download the USB Flash Disk Utility to divide the drive into two partitions, format them, and protect data in the private partition with a password.

The ToughDrive series includes models with capacities of 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB. The manufacturer declares a max read speed of 30MB/s and a max write speed of 20MB/s for them.
