The 8GB A-DATA Nobility S805 USB thumb drive has some nice design features that make it handy to carry around. Today we are going to have a look at the 8GB S805 model from their Nobility line which can be found online for a mere $23 shipped. The read speeds are commendable but how about the writes? We put the drive to the test and see if it’s worthy of your economy depressed dollars.
Offered in both grey and red finishes, each wrapped in a reflective zinc alloy frame, the A-DATA Nobility S805 is a very attractive looking device. Its heft, at 25g (.88oz), is substantial for its size and certainly gives the perception that this is a well constructed and rugged piece of hardware. It comes packaged with nothing other than a warranty information brochure and is available in capacities ranging from 4GB to 16GB.
