1 out of 5 eggsSTAY AWAY!!!

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

Pros: Looks Cool. LOves how the USB cable wraps around the rubber casing.

Cons: Drive gave trouble out of the box. Very picky on which PCs to perform in USB 3 mode. Few PCs wouldn't even see the drive or it would connect6 and dosconnect all the time. Works fine on these PCs in USB 2 mode though, pointless. Cable connection is VERY LOOSE as mentioned by many reviewers. I have to like not even touch it once a connection is made, lest it loses the connection with the PC and me having to battle all over to get it working. This does NOT happen with my WD Passport drive.

Other Thoughts: ADATA Taiwan support is nothing but rubbish. I emailed them over and over. The techie makes as if he doesn't understand what you're writing to the point he hopes you'll bet fedup and decide to give up.
However, ADATA did agree to FIX the drive on condition I courier the drive to them in Taiwan, whish would cost more than how much I paid for the drive.
My advice, STAY AWAY. I'd NEVER buy ADATA products again, even if they're half the price as the competirtion.
Drive is RUBBISH. ADATA Taiwan support wasn't actually rubbish, it was non existant.

2 out of 5 eggsnot worth the hassle

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

Pros: cheap, rugged and shockproof. I don't worry about it moving around in my bag. the short cable forces me to leave it near my laptop or any work computer which means I won't forget it anywhere.

Cons: almost immediately, I noticed that the usb cable attachment is flimsy. The slightest move detaches the drive from my laptop. I use it as a work drive so it's imperative that I can access my files on a continuous basis. If I put my mbp to sleep, the drive fails to load on waking my laptop and I have to use the 10 min long repair function in disk utility to be able to access the drive again. About once per month, I have to load it on my windows 7 desktop when disk utility can't even find it.

Other Thoughts: it's a decent drive when it works, but it is so sensitive to the slightest movement that it is useless as a mobile drive and barely functional as a desktop external.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good

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

Pros: It works like it should. I get 3.0 speeds, I haven't had any issues with the drive after about 6 months. And the best feature is how the cable attaches to the drive case, I never have to worry about finding the cable for it.

Cons: The USB port on the drive seems a little loose but I've moved it around quite a bit while it was plugged in and I have never had an issue. So more of a feel issue, not an actual problem.

1 out of 5 eggsBig Disappointment X2

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

Pros: Worked for about 5 minutes.

Cons: These drives seemingly cannot handle sustained writes, even infrequently. I purchased 2 (one for me, one for a friend.) While doing the first sustained write on mine, it digitally disconnected (didn't even show up in windows disk management) from the computer after the first 2-3 gb were moved, even though the cable was still physically connecting my computer and the hard drive. Would not reconnect for an extended period of time, despite repeated, slow replugging attempts. Once it would finally connect again, it simply repeated the whole problem. Attempted file writes of similar file sizes from several other machines yielded identical results. Received a call from my friend a few days later (he was using his to hold a backup of his 80gb hard drive) and his had suffered the same fate.

Other Thoughts: Lemon me once ADATA, shame on you. Lemon me twice, shame on me. Lesson learned. This is kind of ridiculous given this product is supposed to be incredibly durable.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine

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

Pros: It works,Easy access to the hd because of cheap glue job of the silicon case.

Cons: The included cable is very stiff and too short, sort of like Junior.The Silicon shock protection is dot glued to the hard plastic case.

Other Thoughts: Crystal Disk Info ids my harddrive as a 5400RPM ST1000LM024 8Mb cache.If I get the rebate it'll cost me under 70.

1 out of 5 eggsI don't recommend

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

Pros: looks nice

Cons: I just got the drive today, connected to my Dell monitor 2408 (it works as a hub) and it doesn't work. I'm able to connect other portable hdd's, USB's, my phone..I though maybe it's not enough power..connected straight to the computer - works, but one i touched the usb cable, it got disconnected..I decided to test on my laptop.. connected to one of the ports - doesn't work, tried another - works..Touching again the cable - the USB connector what goes to the laptop - hard drive disconnects.. So it could be a problem just with the cable, but since it doesn't use standard micro USB port, i don't have an option to test it..
basically in a very small movement of the drive or your PC causes connection loss between the USB port and the USB cable. I have another portable drive with much shorter cable and I don't have any issues
also the USB port in the hard drive is very loose, it's not glueed or somehow attached to the enclosure
I would recommend to look for another portable drive

Other Thoughts: I don't have any complains and never had with other A-data products what i'm using.. DDR2, DDR3 memory, USB flash drives

Thank you NewEgg for the return shipping label and full refund

5 out of 5 eggsNice compact Drive and super Quiet

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

Pros: compact size
Very Quiet
Plug & Play
No power plug required

Cons: short USB connector cord - was not an issue for me but might be for others

Other Thoughts: Use it for PVR drive coonnected to my Bell Satellite receiver as I was having issues with the Seagate unit I was using. This unit is 1/3 the size & whisper quiet compared to the loud clunky seagate unit. Also no external power source required means less wires.
