A-DATA looks to have a pretty interesting product on its hands in the form of the N002 Combo Flash Drive. The new beast is one of A-DATA’s SSDs (come back in a couple of weeks for an A-DATA SSD review!), but that’s not what makes it interesting. No, that’s the case it comes in.
The N002 Combo drive is wrapped in stylish metal, making it no bigger than a traditionally tiny SSD. With a SATAII connection, you actually use this drive inside of your computer like any other SATA drive. It’s also got USB3.0, though – so if you’re one of the lucky few that has a USB3.0-equipped motherboard, you’ll be able to access all that high speed (200MB/s sequential read, 170MB/s sequential write, in this case) without having to pop anything open. There’s no price yet announced, but given that this is supposed to be shipping as soon as next month, it won’t be long before we find it out.
