INTRODUCTION We’ve once more tested a 1 GB USB 2.0 drive. This time we’ve been handed the A-Data PD17, which is the latest addition to their Nobility series. It’s a tiny little gadget that only weighs 5 grams, and because of its size it fits easily into a pocket when travelling.
PACKAGING The A-Data PD17 comes wrapped up in a transparent plastic containment and there’s nothing else to find in the package than the stick itself. No strap, no nothing.
As it can be seen, the A-Data PD17 is really small, and A-Data puts an effort into promoting this.
SPECIFICATIONS Here we have the specifications of the A-Data PD17 mini flash drive. A-Data haven’t disclosed the writing/reading speeds of the drive.
Measures: 36.5x24.5x5.5 mm Weight: 5g
Operatingsystems: Win 98/ME/2000/XP Vista, Mac OS 9.0 or newer, Linux 2.4 or newer.
The A-Data PD17 is also available in a 2GB and a 4GB version that share the same specifications, and other than red, the drive also comes in either blue or champagne.
THE PRODUCT The drive is red with a metallic edge and A-Data’s logo printed in the center. The drive is definitely meant to be fastened in a key ring with its rather big ring that it can be attached with.
