Adata UC370 USB flash drive

The Adata UC370 OTG flash drives give users the ability to connect older devices to newer ones without the need for any additional drivers or cables.

On one end of the drive is a USB-A connector and the other end boast a USB-C or mini USB connector. This allows one to connect a smartphone directly to their computer in order to transfer files.

The USB-C connector also allows a user to plug the drive directly into a phone in order to watch movies or listen to music without the need for an Internet connection.

The UC370 supports transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps and weighs just 3.7 grams.

ADATA offers three drive sizes.

16GB     R258

32GB     R368

64GB     R628

Overall the UC370 is a very useful device to carry around, especially when transferring large files like movies. However the cap that clips over the USB-C connector is rather flimsy and will end up getting lost in a pocket or notebook bag somewhere along the line.

With the ever present threat of power outages coupled with skyrocketing electricity bills, organisations across sectors are looking for energy efficient and power-saving computing solutions. As with its sister device, the CloudGate X, this mini computer is capable of running the Linux, Windows 10 and Chrome operating systems. However, the CloudGate Xs utilises the newest generation Intel Gemini Lake CPU – and thereby offers a critical performance increase of 25% over the CloudGate X. With its new, sleek design, this powerful device also benefits from improved heat dissipation.

“The CloudGate Xs is an ideal replacement for most desktop computers, at a fraction of the cost,” explains Xavier Nel, Head of Product at CloudGate. “It also comes in at the same price point as the CloudGate X, making it an extraordinarily accessible – yet sophisticated – computing solution. Simply plug in a screen, keyboard and mouse and you have a mini-PC for business or education use.”
This is an eco-friendly solution. By using less than 10 percent of the electricity a typical desktop requires, this user-friendly device lowers the energy footprint for an organisation considerably. With warnings of a fragile Eskom power station always nearby, embracing power-savvy technology – which translates into low running costs – has become increasingly important.

From a connectivity perspective, the computer has 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 and 1Gig Ethernet. Despite its sleek form, the device boasts three USB 3.0 ports and several others that include VGA, HDMI, RJ45, one DC 12V 2A power input and one 3.5mm audio port. Users will benefit from 4GB DDR4 High-Speed RAM, 64 GB EMMC Solid-State Storage, and an SD card reader. Moreover, storage capacity can be upgraded with an extra 128GB or 256GB m.2 SSD.

The CloudGate Xs ships with a power adapter, VESA Screen Mount, HDMI cable and instruction booklet. Ranging in cost from between R3 499 and R5 199 (depending on the chosen configuration), the CloudGate Xs delivers on several use cases across industry sectors.
