ADATA's new S007 is easily the tougher of the two. Designed to be fully compliant with US MIL-SPEC standards, this new USB key is available in capacities up to 32GB and should provide careless handlers with "unrivaled digital data protection from both impacts and electric shocks." Both of 'em (it's available in green and red) are wrapped in a rubber coating, and transfer at USB 2.0 speeds (upwards of 30MB/sec on the read side and 8MB/sec on the write side), but sadly, there's no mention of a price or release date.
ADATA Rolls Out the S007 Military Specification Flash Drive
Waterproof and shock resistant, the S007 meets even the most rigorous standards
Taipei, Taiwan – 13 October, 2010 – ADATA Technology, one of the world's leading manufacturers of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash application products, is pleased to announce the launch of the S007 USB Flash Drive. The device, which will be available in capacities up to 32GB, complies with US MIL-SPEC standards, providing users with unrivalled digital data protection from both impacts and electric shocks. The rugged and streamlined USB Flash drive specifically targets business people on the go and those with an active lifestyle.
Compliance with the US MIL-SPEC ensures the safety of your data whatever the conditions. With a rubber coating, the S007 boasts advanced rubber injection technology to prevent water damage and remain shock resistant.
Data transfer rates
Designed to deliver astounding data transfer rates, the S007 can achieve a read speed of 30MB/s and a write speed of 8MB/s - 10% faster than conventional USB 2.0 solutions.
Clever design features
Available in two vibrant colours, the S007's curved design provides a comfortable and slip resistant grip with an integrated LED indicator light, to show when the drive is in use. In addition, the cap can be safely tucked away in the key's loop-shaped design to prevent it from being misplaced (see image).
These qualities make the brand new ADATA S007 Flash Drive, an extremely reliable high performance product for use in any situation, come rain or shine.
