Since all storage drives use 1 Megabyte (MB) = 1,000,000 bytes to figure out the storage capacity the drive will be a little smaller than some expect. Some of the listed capacity is also used for formatting and other functions and is therefore not available for data storage.
The actual usable storage space on the A-DATA 32GB XPG Series Xupreme Flash Drive is 29.8GB as you can see from the drive properties screen capture shown above.
The A-DATA XPG series Xupreme 200x USB 2.0 flash drive offers storage capacity options ranging from 8GB to 64GB and supports up to 30MB/s (200X) read speed, thanks to the ultra-fast dual channel technology. When it comes to performance the Xupreme 200x has very fast read speeds, but mediocre write performance. The A-Data XPG series Xupreme 200x drives should be fast enough for all users, though, as this is a high performance USB flash drive and faster than most on the market today. The drive has been certified for Windows Vista and is also enhanced for Windows ReadyBoost. It also is fully compatible with Windows 7, so you should be able to use it for years down the road. The lifetime warranty also makes this a very sweet flash drive as you are covered if the drive ever fails.
If you like to have fast transfer speeds and want to carry all your songs, photos, movies and documents when you’re on the go, the A-DATA XPG series Xupreme 200x USB 2.0 flash drive is worthy of a closer look. It failed to impress us when it comes to write performance, but the drive itself is solid and the lifetime warranty is awesome.
Legit Bottom Line: The A-DATA XPG series Xupreme 200x USB 2.0 flash drive looks great, has a lifetime warranty and super fast read speeds, but the write speed performance was a little low for an high performance drive.
