Sporty And Zippy
The A-DATA Sport series of products comes with unique designs and we got one of their 2 GB drives. The S701 sports a rough and modern design. The drive is very compact, has a rough texture with a metal border around it. The drive’s socket doesn’t have a metal border surround it, and this is a bit of a weak point.
It isn’t an excellent performer from the scores we recorded. SiSoft Sandra recorded data read rates of around 19 MBps, and around 4.2 MBps write speeds. HD Tach scores didn’t differ a lot either. Reading a GB of data took around 1 min 16 seconds. Writing a 1 GB file took around 3 minutes. HD Tach showed CPU utilisation of 6 per cent, which is a bit high.
At a price of Rs 550, you might find the actual prices to be a little lower, which is a good buy.
