external drive. My package was mishandled in
customs and the box looked like it was dropped
and placed under some heavy objects. Am glad I
ordered this item because it works perfectly and
looks great after suffering such abuse. It plug
and play with some software download available.
The USB cord is short and attached to the drive
Which makes it convenient with no risk of being
tangled or lost.It easily fits in my coat pocket.
however, 1st one I bought was DOA.
I also wish that the usb cable supplied that connects to the drive (you always have what you need) had plastic covers or lids attached to the cord that can be removed when using the cord, and replaced when the drive is inactive. I think it would help keep the cable from getting trashed especially if the reason it got trashed was the bits of rock and mud that got inside the prongs when itfell from yourtruck onto the ground into water
The ADATA was bought several months ago as a replacement for a Transcend StoreJet 25 Mobile Anti-Shock 500 GB USB 2.5 Portable Hard Drive TS500GSJ25M that started making some funny noises. The ADATA seems fine so far and the price was great for the amount of storage (it was on monster sale when I bought it). I also like that it's water-resistant as well as shock-resistant. However, the read/write speed seems to be much slower than the Transcend (maybe because the Transcend was USB 2.5?). That's been a great source of frustration for me. Other than that it seems to be fine. The integrated cord storage is pretty nifty. Once I kill this one, though, I'll probably go back to a Transcend product.
Happily, it turns out the warranty on these is 3 years. Got an RMA number from ADATA, returned the drive to them, and in less than 2 weeks they shipped back a new (not refurbished) unit! Kudos to ADATA.
The other unit has always worked superbly. These little guys are fast (for 5400rpm drives) and so portable. I have no hesitancy in recommending these, especially knowing the way ADATA backs up their warranty with excellent service.
