Austin Huang, Regional Head – Sales, SAARC and APAC, Transcend, said, “The T5’s tiny size and lightweight design gives the user the freedom to carry it in places normal flash drives just do not fit. Simply attach it to your mobile phone or keychain so you’ll always have a storage device with you wherever you go. Extremely small yet easy to use, Transcend’s JetFlash T5 breaks free from the flash drive status quo. Its unique ultra-tiny casing with retractable USB connector and its eye-catching two-tone design with unique hexagon pattern are sure to wow the users!”Transcend maintains that the T5 is constructed with non-breakable plastic and is rugged enough to resist bending, stress, vibration, shock, and even full water submersion. It is fully high-speed USB 2.0 compliant and the JetFlash elite software tools can turn the T5 into a key to automatically log on to website accounts, or even temporarily lock a computer to prevent unauthorized access. The software also allows users to browse their favorite bookmarked websites and check their email from any compatible computer with the included Internet Favorites and Mobile Email functions.
The JetFlash T5 USB flash drive is available in capacities of 2 GB (Orange/Black) for Rs. 500, 4 GB (White/Black) for Rs. 650 and 8 GB (Red/Black) for Rs. 850 with a 3-year warranty.
ATP Inc. is a well-known manufacturer of all sorts of memory products, whether we’re talking about Flash memory or DRAM. However, with the EarthDrive, it has managed to create a product that’s entirely bio-recyclable, manufactured from a biodegradable polyester derived from renewable resources, and which still manages to carry out its external storage functions very well.Moreover, the company seems to have taken this eco-friendly approach even further, since it’s actually donating a hefty portion of the EarthDrive’s sales towards the planting of new trees across the world, which is indeed a noteworthy decision, especially given the fact that relatively few technology firms prove their commitment to the environment in such a manner.
Design and aesthetics
Overall design features
Design-wise, the EarthDrive is somewhat different from the numerous devices of this type available on the market. First of all, it’s extremely small (it measures just 35.7 mm x 23.3 mm x 10.31 mm), which means that you really won’t have any problems carrying it around. However, since such a small size might make it prone to loss/misplacement, the device also sports a small hole in the upper side, which can be used for attaching the drive either to the lanyard provided in the package or even to something more solid, like a backpack, bag, etc.As far as the color scheme is concerned, the EarthDrive is rather “classical,” featuring an all-white front side, while the rest of its body is all-black (reflective, piano-black, to be more precise).Despite being manufactured from biodegradable materials, the quality of the build is quite impressive. Thus, there’s nothing “cheap” about it, and even if the case looks just like plastic, it’s by no means the cheap plastic we encounter in so many other similar products on the market.
Button and sliding mechanism
In order to keep the size to a minimum, as well as render the device as shockproof, dustproof and waterproof as possible, the drive from ATP features a sliding mechanism, which means that users will have to push a button in order to “eject” the USB connector.The button is placed right in the middle of the drive and is dented and “tall” enough, compared to the surface level of the drive to ensure the fact that users won’t have any problems pushing it out. Plus, no springs are involved, so the sliding mechanism is not very likely to fail anytime soon.
Last, but certainly not least, I’ll have to point out that the drive also sports a LED activity indicator, which turns to bright blue whenever data is being transferred.
Eco-friendly and bio-recyclable
We couldn’t really end our analysis of the design of this drive without talking a bit about one of its main features, namely the one related to the materials it has been built from. As the guys over at ATP inform us, following a very long research period, they’ve been able to design and build the device using the maximum amount of biodegradable materials (PLA). PLA, or Polylactic acid is a biodegradable polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn.
