USB and firewire devices reviews
The A-Data Nobility Series N005 USB 3.0 flash drive is capable of holding a huge 32GB of data. Because it's a USB 3.0 device, when plugged into a compatible port it means transfer speeds are much zippier.
Along with AES 256-bit encryption, iStorage devices include a numeric pad for typing in a pin, for even greater security. With the iStorage datAshur USB flash drive, physical security is packed into a nicely compact device not much bigger than a lot of other USB flash drives.
The big letdown for the flash drive is the odd write performance. Sequential speeds seem as good if not better than the Kingston DT Ultimate, however as soon as random access and small files are thrown into the mix all hell breaks loose and performance tanks , which is very off putting for such a premium product.
As the name would suggest, this USB hub allows you to connect seven devices to it. The Connect 7 is small and compact. It measures just 94 x 53 x 18mm and ﬁts in the palm of your hand.
We've reviewed drive docks before – devices that let you mount hard disks on your Mac without wrestling them inside an enclosure first – but none so compact and handy as this one. It has three ports for three different types of drive: there's a slot for a CompactFlash card so you can easily import pictures from a digital camera that uses it.
