It's really amazing how quickly portable flash storage has become ubiquitous, but then I suppose we shouldn't be all that surprised. ADATA FP1

Thumb drive prices have plummeted over the last couple of years, making them practically cheap enough to include in a box of Cracker Jacks. Growing capacities have made thumb ADATA FP1 significantly more useful, too, extending their appeal far beyond mere floppy replacement.

You really couldn't fit much on the first few generations of flash drives, but things have changed dramatically. Unfortunately, because of their small size, flash drives are also easy to lose. ADATA FP1

With identity theft on the rise, you certainly don't ADATA FP1 your personal information falling into unscrupulous or even nosey hands. To foil prying eyes, you could manually password-protect or otherwise encrypt files stored on your thumb drive. Drives are even available with fancy combination locks to keep outsiders at bay. Or you could opt for something a little more exotic: A-Data has done just that with the FP1 flash drive, which gates its contents with a clever fingerprint scanner. Read on to see how it works and whether it's a worth considering for your thumb-sized storage needs. All at the tip of your finger There admittedly isn't much to the FP1, or any thumb drive for that matter, which is why you don't see them covered much here at TR.

I mean, what can you really say about the drive?


Measuring 66 mm long, 24 mm wide, and 9 mm tall, the FP1 is roughly, er, thumb-sized. I'm not entirely sure how much the average human thumb weighs, but at 15 grams, I'm willing to ADATA FP1 that the FP1 is lighter. In fact, it actually feels a little too light for my tastes.

The drive has an almost airy feel, and while its plastic casing should hold ADATA FP1 to day-to-day abuse, it's hard for something this light to feel really solid. A-Data has also gone light in the color department, draping the FP1 in an all-white casing that should suit the iMac crowd.

Macs certainly have more style than the average PC, so copping their color palette isn't such a bad idea. However, I can't help but wish the FP1 riffed on the industrial aesthetic of the PowerMac rather than the stark, clinical whiteness of the iMac. At least the all-white look matches a French manicure. Removing the FP1's ADATA FP1 casing reveals the drive's USB interface, and more importantly, a little gold strip that serves as the device's "sweep-type" fingerprint scanner. The scanner is remarkably small, requiring that you run your entire fingerprint across the strip to complete a scan.
