Performance:

Using the A-DATA PD18 flash drive with a Linux 2.6 kernel should work without any issues. We had tested the A-DATA PD18 in Fedora 7 and Ubuntu 7.10 and had run into no problems. With a Lenovo ThinkPad T60 notebook running Ubuntu 7.10 with the Linux 2.6.22 kernel we had compared the PD18 read performance using hdparm to the Corsair Flash Voyager 4GB (non-GT). Using hdparm for timed buffered disk reads, the PD18 had read at an average of 22.07 MB/s while the Flash Voyager was 31.09 MB/s.

Conclusion:

The A-DATA PD18 had not outperformed the legendary Corsair Flash Voyager GT, however, this flash drive is very small, and that's its selling point. If you are after a high-performance high-capacity flash drive you will want to look elsewhere, but if you a want a very tiny flash drive the PD18 is a prime candidate. The A-DATA Classic PD18 is available in capacities from 1GB to 8GB with the 2GB edition only costing about $20 USD.
