A-Data C702 16GB Flash Drive Review


Is that 16GB in your pocket?...

It’s absolutely amazing that flash drives have surpassed the capacity of hard drives from 10 years ago.  I mean, you can now attach 10 times more data to your keychain than you could fit into the average Windows 95 PC.  Back then, if you were an uber-geek then you MIGHT have a 1GB hard drive, which was barely enough to copy audio CDs at the time.

As our resident industry analyst pointed out in one of his recent articles, data storage is growing exponentially, so the need for portable data storage will only increase.  While many retail stores may only have 4 gigabyte drives in the stores, the new 16GB models are now very common, and will soon be the average size at your local Best Buy and Office Depot.

I used to carry around several 4-gigabyte sticks because as a technology and graphics professional I need my files with me at all times.  I had one stick for portable applications, one for photoshop files and fonts I use all the time, and of course one to hold all my Atari 2600 and Nintendo emulator ROMs…

Now I can replace all of these sticks with a single USB drive thanks to A-Data’s C702 16GB Flash drive.  Not only does it cram 4 DVDs-worth of storage into a little nugget, but is has features to make it ultra-portable and ultra-useful.
