A-Data is most well known for making top notch overclocker memory. Little less known is that they make different storage products too, for example USB sticks with a Disney license.

Like most other USB sticks the A-DATA Football Disk comes in a sealed blister pack to protect against theft in stores. As always when reviewing a product in a blister pack I have to complain about the risk of injuries, even though I'm slowly working out a method to do it safely.

Inside the package you find the USB stick of course. In addition you get a nice 1m USB extension cable, so you won't have to crawl under your desk if you don't have front USB ports in your case. Also included is a little metal chain which can be attached to the drive.
Manuals or Drivers are not included but are not needed anyway. On the A-DATA website you can find a driver for Windows 9x, if you are a decade behind current technology.

Included with the package is a little plastic football guy which can be attached to the USB stick with the included chain.
