1 out of 5 eggs*flush*

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-1TU3-CYL Yellow

Pros: It's cute.

Cons: Totally unreliable connection. This drive frequently dismounts without warning, much to the dismay of TrueCrypt. The problem occurs when the drive is laid flat on a stable surface, making it almost useless when traveling with a laptop. Trying to reposition the cable can cause the drive to mount and dismount several times in succession before it finally hooks up.

I am going to backup my things on it once then toss it in a drawer somewhere, as it is patently unfit for use as a portable hard drive.

Other Thoughts: No wonder it was on sale.

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-1TU3-CYL Yellow

Pros: Excellent hard drive: Great construction, very easy to use and set up....Cable has great design to be portable and convenient. I was able to back up my entire hard drive in a very short period of time.

Cons: Haven't found any.....I use it to keep my entire picture library and hard drive back up...

5 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-1TU3-CYL Yellow

Pros: Have used this daily for 6 months now. The drive itself isn't fast however I am transferring through USB 2.0. I don't expect this drive to be blazing fast but it has not let me down yet.

Cons: Like other posts, the usb port on the drive seems to be flimsy but I am assuming this is done to prevent damaging the internal connection. If you are aware of this, it is as simple as being careful when plugging/unplugging the drive. I have not encountered a situation where I would like a longer cord.

Other Thoughts: Couldn't be happier for a shock and water proof hard drive.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Slow Drive

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-1TU3-CYL Yellow

Pros: Pretty Yellow Color

Cons: Slow, Slow, Slow, I have several USB 3 drives I use and they run very fast on my computer, this drive runs slower than my USB 2 drives!

Other Thoughts: Not worth the money

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,


Please run ATTO Benchmark to get most accurate transfer rate, if you are transferring large non-compressible files the transfer rate will not be accurate.

If you are still experiencing issues or need additional support please contact our office directly, one of support members will be happy to assist you.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks in a pinch, but with caveats...

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-1TU3-CYL Yellow

Pros: I knew the connector was gonna suck, did research elsewhere, and figured out a more mechanical workaround. Defeats the 'water-proof' factor (stop laughing in the back!) but not the shock-proof.. Needed a quick fix for some heavy vibration issues and this worked.

Cons: The connector is ridiculously easy to wear out without some 'tightening' with physical material to compensate for a defective design. The Engineer behind this flaw (where's the ruggedness?) should be seriously fired.. Thank heavens for the ability to hack something together..

Other Thoughts: Would never recommend this to anyone. However, at the time it was ordered, it fit the price-point to fix a vibration issue eating drives like m&m's.. And with a little tweaking, it fixed the issue (at least for the time being)..

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsNeeds a longer cable

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-1TU3-CYL Yellow

Pros: Very quick with USB 3.0.
Looks nice (goes well with a "wow" factor gaming case)
Plenty of space for back ups and file storage

Cons: Cable is way too short. I guess they thought it'd be cute to attach a 1cm cable to the thing. They did it because it can wrap around the side and make it look neat. Well, it's annoying. And I'd rather not spend extra money buying a longer cable just so I can have it sit on the table away from the ground with dust and debree

The colored rubber wrap around the side isn't even attached to it. It's like...thrown onto it. They should have at least did a half-a$$3d glue job or something to make it look presentable.

Other Thoughts: Not really sure how durable it is. I'm not gonna go start smashing it with a hammer or dropping it from my roof. It sits on the ground next to my computer because the cable is too small. Which, in retrospect, is a pretty smart way of making a "durable" external HDD. Make it so the possibility of dropping it is greatly reduced by making the stupid cable 2 inches long.

4 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-1TU3-CYL Yellow

Pros: I like these -- I have a black one, a blue one, and decided to get the yellow one to make a set.

Cons: This one was DOA -- head clunk and clank on plates

2 out of 5 eggsGood for about 2 weeks

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-1TU3-CYL Yellow

Pros: Fast transfer, good price on sale.

Cons: after about 2 weeks of use I started getting connection issues. Seems the usb3 connector is not very sturdy and has a lot of movement which is causing disconnects. The cable is to stiff and puts a strain on the connector which then starts to fail. Trying to get my backup backed up before I lose data. Then I will see if I can return for a replacement...

Other Thoughts: The outer rubber sleeve was also not very well attached. I would not trust this around much water.....

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-1TU3-CYL Yellow

Pros: Rugged, reasonably fast

Cons: Windows 7 constantly wants to scan for errors. Manufacturer not all that forthcoming with specs.

Other Thoughts: I don't buy portable drives for blazing speed and I don't have a USB 3.0 interface to really test performance. But my 500G Western Digital was making awful knocking sounds after spending the last 2 years at the bottom of my Laptop case. If these drives can stand up to the pounding they'll be worth their weight.
