SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition 4GB (Connect) detailed review

More oomph than a Ducati


USB drives are boring. The new SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition is not. Visually appealing and built to resemble a Ducati motorbike, this drive is encased in a solid metal jacket with a red glossy paint job, silver and black details and even a little Ducati badge on top—a delight for any Ducati fan. A taillight that blinks during data transfer is also a nice touch. The metal does make it heavier than most other drives its size, and it’s a bit bulkier too.

With excellent build quality and a retractable gold-plated USB connector, it appears ready to take any punishment. A long lanyard is provided so you can wear it around your neck to prevent it from getting lost, though it becomes uncomfortable to wear this dead weight after a while.

The drive supports ReadyBoost for Vista, and is compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2000, Mac OS and Linux. There’s no file backup, encryption or U3 capability, but the drive exhibits blazing transfer speeds, taking just 34 seconds to transfer a 700 MB file to the drive; transferring it back takes just 29.5 seconds. This is one of the speediest performances by a Flash drive we’ve seen so far.

SanDisk bundles RescuePRO Deluxe—a data recovery software that can recover files deleted from any drive, specifically meant for memory cards. It is backed by an unmatched lifetime warranty from SanDisk and that makes it a very attractive option for portable data storage and transfer. In both performance and style,the SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition assumes
pole position and is definitely worth a buy, if you don’t mind the slightly steep price.
