USB 3.0 brings external storage in line with the speeds of internal storage. Can the A-DATA N005 make your life better, or just cause you heart ache?

Final Thoughts

 

There are three measurements that are used to gauge a product like the N005. The first is capacity; how large of a drive do you need? - The second is performance; does the product perform fast enough to satisfy your application? - Finally, the third is the price; at what cost are you willing to spend to achieve the goals of the first two categories?

 

The A-DATA Nobility N005 certainly has the capacity for nearly all uses. With 16, 32 and 64GB models available, A-DATA has covered a wide range so users can choose the size needed. With prices ranging from 45 to 140 USD, the N005 is substantially cheaper than most of the other USB 3.0 portable drives we have tested, so everything is good there, too.

 

The one area that we see potential users having an issue with is the performance. The A-DATA Nobility N005 should have been able to run circles around the Hitachi SIMPLEtough, a simple USB 2.0 platter drive, but the controller in the N005 just wasn't up to the task. It is the performance aspect that leaves us unsatisfied with the A-DATA Nobility N005, although it is in line with the price.
