ADATA SC680 External Solid State Drive, blue and black finishes with two feathers in the background

SC680 External Solid-State Drive

The ADATA SC680 external SSD is built to give you easy and fast access to your data anywhere you go. It is stylish, thin, lightweight, and resistant to shock and vibration. And it adopts USB 3.2 Gen 2 USB-C (Type-C) interface to provide read/write speeds of up to 530/460MB/s, which are up to 6.6 times faster¹ than external HDDs. Now you can transfer 4K movie or load console games in the blink of an eye. No setup is needed. Just connect it to your device via the USB-C (Type-C) connector and play.

So Many Advantages over HDDs

With no mechanical components, SSDs are more resilient than HDDs. They are more resistant to shock, vibration, and therefore provide better protection for data. What's more, SSDs also run silently.

Notes:

1. This result was achieved in a lab environment utilizing a PC with USB 3.2 Gen 2 support and UASP driver installed. Actual performance may vary depending on host device and software configurations.

2. Please confirm that your host device supports OTG (On-The-Go) functionality. Some operating systems may require the SC680 to be reformatted when connected.

3. The actual loading times may vary depending on individual games. You may need to modify the disk format before connecting to the host.

Pretty good for transfering files 7/22/2020 4:18:57 PM

Pros: This hard drive was very easy to use for moving my files from my old computer to my new one.

Cons: Less space than advertised.

Overall Review: I like this drive, despite it having less space than advertised. But I figure a part of the storage advertised is a memory cache, so I will let them get away with it.

I cannot detail any more superlatives then what I've already mentioned in the "Pros." I've had the item for less than a week and I already feel I've gotten my money's worth and still have the life of the product to look forward to. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and will look to no other brand if I need to purchase another portable SSD in the future.

Super fast 12/25/2019 2:32:34 AM

Pros: This drive has been perfect for video production. The writing and transfer speeds are superb.

drive was instantaneously identifiable on my iMac as well as my MacBook Pro. There was no additional software necessary. It’s also a fantastic that it requires no additional power source.

Cons: The only issue I’ve had has been underestimating how amazing this little drive would be.

Overall Review: Super fast reading, writing and transfer speeds. I highly recommend this drive.

Small, light, and speedy 12/15/2019 10:17:36 AM

Pros: Ultra-portable, lightweight, easily fits in a pocket, and good read/write speeds -- almost as fast writing as reading.

Cons: No cons that I've encountered.

Overall Review: This little baby is small and light, about the size of a playing card and lighter than a pack of cards. It's also pretty fast, at least for my purposes, mainly backups. According to Crystal Disk Mark, for sequential read/write it did about 453/430 MB/s respectively, and for random read/write about 100/82 MB/s.

Tip: At first mine would occasionally disconnect and then reconnect over and over, but I narrowed it down to a cable I was using, so if you have that problem, try changing USB ports or use only the included cable or a cable you know is good.
