Waterproof, shock-resistant and decently priced
A-Data has rolled out a new series of USB 3.0 flash drives with a rather interesting, ruggedized design. Featuring a shock-resistant and waterproof casing, the new S107 USB 3.0 flash drive series will be avialable in 8, 16 and 32GB capacities.
As the name suggests, the new flash drives feature the USB 3.0 interface and achieve read speeds of up to 100MB/s. Thanks to special casing design, S107 drives feature military grade shock and water resistance, as well as an interesting arc design that doubles as a flash-drive cap holder.
The transfer speeds are set at 95MB/s for read and 15MB/s for write on the 8GB model, 100/25MB/s for the 16GB one and 100/50MB/s for the 32GB model. The exact dimensions are 61.8x18.7x10.7mm and the drives weighs 13.6g.
The entire series is backed by a lifetime warranty and come with Norton Internet Security 2012 (60 day trial) as well as UFDtoGO backup software. The best part of the story is the price set at around US $20, US $30 and US $65 for 8, 16 and 32GB model.
