Certainly not the quickest drive we have tested. Also interested in random IO performance, not just copying. Unlike other solutions where the cap remains attached d102 me you can still loose this cap for a while!

Posted by Brewster – Tue 26 Feb Within OS X Launched as part of the company’s Superior Series range and described as a ‘value-driven’ solution, the drive’s purpose is to provide a good level of SuperSpeed USB 3. Its might not be expensive but doesn’t take advantage of the USB 3 speeds. With its strong price point, the ADATA S Pro is a adatq solution for those wanting a reliable drive for moving data backed by a lifetime warranty.

In our Windows 8.
The drive’s aluminium alloy body looks suitably smart and should keep the drive running cool during extended use, and for a USB 3. I always felt that the USB2 spec could support faster transfers than many grotty USB pen drives offered, and wonder if the improved internals allowing for such improved performance over USB3 might also yield benefits over slower connections ie.

Size, weight and aesthetics are all sensible, and we appreciate the fact that the cap, when removed, can be stowed on the back of the stick for safe keeping. All branding information is printed along the bottom edge of the drive. Above, you can see we have adafa blue coloring denoting its USB 3. The S carries the standard flash drive form factor, but adds elegance to it with its aluminium design.
While the S Pro certainly isn’t the quickest flash drive we have tested over the last few years, it does offer a decent aeata of value when you put the MSRP and decent performance together. This drive as seen above is a capped design, but carries a retainer at the back so you can secure the cap during use. Claims a third faster writes and a quarter faster adaya versus its previous gen NAND. Even with this drive’s mediocre performance, with the MSRP being competitive, it certainly helped its case.
