1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy it

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

Pros: Looked kinda cool.

Cons: This drive comes in many other colors. Read teh reviews of the other colors and you will see others complain of this drive not staying connected. Thats because its true. I experienced the same thing. During the middle of file transfers the drive randomly ejects itself and you get the windows found new hardware music tone every five seconds. Sometimes I couldn't even finish a data transfer without it being interupted by disconnect. I should have read the reviews better. Its due to the cable being VERY loose. If you accidentally breathe near it then it will disconnect. If a truck drives by your house it will disconnect. If a butterfly in Africa lands a little to hard it will disconnect. To get it to finally finish the data transfer I had to walk around on egg shells to not disturb it.
Also the rubber casing is put on in a cheap manner. The edges peel away with the slightest touch.

Other Thoughts: Every one complains about the cable being too short. It is, but from my research this is necessary so that the drive can get the amount of power it needs to run through USB. Not really a con, just the way it is. All external USB3.0 drives like this will have the same length of cable.

4 out of 5 eggsTough as nails!

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

Pros: Extremely durable USB 3.0 drive. I purchased it to carry my music with me when I perform as clubs and bars. The second day I had it, ended up dropping it on concrete when unloading the truck, worked like a champ all night after the fall. I've bashed on this thing for the last month (not on purpose), and it still works. The cable attaches nicely to the body of the drive, so that you don't have to carry them around separately. The USB 3.0 connector on the drive has a rubber flap to cover it as well. Overall the drive is extremely tough and well worth the money. Has a HDD activity LED.

Cons: No Cons. See other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest making the entire case rubber. As it stands, the drive is roughly 60-70% rubber. with a plastic/lexan type of material in the middle. Making the entire case rubber would make the drive look and feel even more durable.

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: good drive for backup, looks and works nice, i dont plan to submerge it in water or drop it on purpose but it seems durable

Cons: attached USB cable is stiff and short, would be great *hint* *hint* if they included an extra longer USB cable that doesn't need to snap on the drive

Other Thoughts: would buy this product(s) from ADATA again well worth the money

5 out of 5 eggsSolid unit

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

Pros: This drive is solid as a rock and is more than double the speed of my old failing usb 2.0 drive.

Cons: The usb cable is quite short for using with a desktop computer which has no front usb 3.0 plug, but it's normal because the cable is made to clip around the drive itself.

Other Thoughts: It's a perfect drive for those who travel a lot while using it with a laptop. In my case, I'm using it mainly with a desktop computer so I had to buy a longer cable.

This is the first time I buy ADATA products and I'm quite impressed by the quality/performance. I plan on buying more of your products in the near future.
