5 out of 5 eggsVery happy

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-500GU3-CBL Blue

Pros: Very fast if used on a USB 3.0 port. Rubber armour. Cool blue color. Holds a ton of my GIS files which tend to be huge. Attached cord is very handy but short.

Cons: Had to glue a couple of corners of the rubber armour back on as it got a bit loose. No big deal.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent External Drive

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-500GU3-CBL Blue

Pros: This little external hard drive is awesome. It is totally shockproof and waterproof to a point. Works perfect and very good speed . Have used it numerous times and yet it has perform flawless.

Cons: The only con I can see is that I wish ADATA would have made the USB cable permanent attached to the drive. That way you will not misplace it.

5 out of 5 eggs100% worth the purchase

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-500GU3-CBL Blue

Pros: Decent sized
Durable
I love that I can wrap the cable around the casing.

Cons: Could be larger
Adapter to HDD has become a little loose.

Other Thoughts: I love this thing. I had a WD 1TB external HD before this and after it falling off my PC it stopped working. Knowing that I'm a little rough on stuff like this I opted for this model, and I've loved every minute of it.

It's been extremely reliable, sustained multiple drops, and is extremely great on the go. Being able to keep my cable attached right to the drive is fantastic as I'm really never at a risk to lost just the USB cable unless I lose the whole package.

I use this roughly 3-4 times a day on different computers every time, and through the use the adapter that connects into the drive has become a hair loose. The USB cable is also quite stiff so it does create a little torque to get it to sit where I'd like it to sit but as far as cons go that's it.

I couldn't recommend this higher in all honesty. I've used it fairly extensively, and it's been there for me on those clumsy drops of mine as well.

4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-500GU3-CBL Blue

Pros: Speedy when running with USB 3.0 -- Durable -- Good Price -- Standard external HDD with usb 3 that gets the job done.

Cons: Only a couple. The cord that it comes with is a kind of short.

The port that the cord connects to is kind of odd. Almost like it doesn't connect all the way. I had to cut off the rubber flap that covers the port hole because the flap would nudge the cord enough to almost push it out of the port.

Other Thoughts: I use this drive mostly for virtual machines. Everything I've used it for has been flawless. The USB 3.0 speeds are a huge bonus here and the cons I mentioned above are not a deal breaker for the price you pay.

5 out of 5 eggsTravels Well

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-500GU3-CBL Blue

Pros: Very good "tough case" design. Absorbs most bumps and bangs without any issues. I have the 1 GB model.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I went through two Toshiba Canvio in less than a year due to the cable getting bent at the input slot. This unit holds up well on the road and is not as easily broken.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed in 8 months

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-500GU3-CBL Blue

Pros: Priced right.
Nicely armored.

Cons: Failed within 8 months of reasonably gentle use. ("Semaphore Timeout" error, would not read data).
The data cable connector on the case did not seem very robust.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately I didn't buy the data recovery "warranty" from A-Data. This is the only HDD I've ever had fail. This thing cost me $1,200.00 to have the data recovered. I submitted an RMA request on the A-Data site this evening. I'll update this posting as the warranty request progresses.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Hard Drive

This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Durable Series HD710 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Water & Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive AHD710-500GU3-CBL Blue

Pros: It has a slot that the connection cable fits firmly into. And the rubber exterior keeps it from sliding around

Cons: The connection of the cable to the hard drive is a little odd. But it still works great. Don't let that keep you from getting it!

Other Thoughts: I love my hard drive!! It is a nice more rugged and portable than my bulky and fragile more expensive drives!
