Introduction

 

Thumb drives come and thumb drives go. They have become a part of our normal daily routine for many, so having one in a pocket, briefcase or purse is quite common. If you spend just a minute or two searching, you will also come up with almost as many manufacturers with their own thumb drive that they want to sell you. But what if the data you store on that drive is important; or special; or even, shall I say it, secret?

 

Enter a company called A-DATA, a smaller company founded in 2001 dealing in memory. Since thumb drives are based on Flash memory, it shouldn't come as a surprise that a memory manufacturer would delve into this market segment. They have come up with a normal enough thumb drive except for one small thing, it is biometric.

 

So relax as we take a look at the A-DATA Biometric Thumb Drive. We'll cover what makes it special and also take a peek at the performance of the drive. After all, just because we want security doesn't mean we want to give up performance.
