AmberAlice, Amazon
21 May 2015
  • Summary: I thought this was great but after three or more months the power connector/information cable on the side of the DashDrive became loose and now won't stay connected at all. Even if I hold the cable pushed in it still wobbles and data transfer stops. The drive has my data but it's useless.

After less than a Year, drive fails

Jose R., Newegg
11 January 2015
  • Pros: Well the only good thing about this drive is that it is affordable which is why I got it in the first place, and its waterproof and "shockproof".
  • Cons: When I first got this drive I partitioned it to 2 different drives, 1 is for Windows (FAT32) and the other for Mac (Mac Journal). After about less than 2 years, for some reason, the Mac partition cannot be found. I have tried several different macbooks, imac etc but none can read it. The Windows ...

STAY AWAY - Flawed Design

Wade H., Newegg
27 September 2014
  • Summary: Find a different drive to purchase and just take care of it. I should have known this was a mistake from the beginning.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Update from my previous review. As I mentioned before the USB port was flimsy and now has completely failed me. ADATA will not cover data backup but won't warranty my drive either. I want my data first before I RMA the drive and ADATA mentioned they would give manager approval as long as I had a ...

Terible Drive and Poor Design

Wade H., Newegg
27 September 2014
  • Summary: You will regret buying this if you do!
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: The USB port WILL fail on you. Constantly disconnects and connects. Mine finally broke from normal wear and tear through 2.5 years and now ADATA is not following through with their warranty.

Merci, Amazon

  • Summary: bought one, after a year the cord connections went bad. I assumed it was an anomaly (replacing the cord did not help), I bought a second one, same problem. Quite irritating. Don't buy. many other products that will do the same job.

Failed Less than 2 Months after Purchase

Mat K, Amazon
23 June 2014
  • Summary: "Military Spec" lasted all of maybe 48 hours of use, before it died. Lost all the data on it. Save yourself a headache and buy a name brand.

Cable connection is NOT shockproof

Daniel E., Newegg
18 February 2014
  • Pros: looks nice - worked well when brand new.
  • Cons: While the case itself may be rubber covered and shockproof - the cable connection is really weak. Once it gets a little banged you can forget getting it to stay connected. Slightest touch or movement will disconnect and interrupt whatever you are doing.

STAY AWAY!!!

Anonymous, Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • 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...

Worked great until it quit working

Matt, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: Thought that a Military-Spec hard drive would be just what I needed to take on my deployment. I work in an office, not on the front lines, but yet this "rugged" hard drive wasn't durable enough to withstand sitting on a desk. The connector no longer works after only 5 months.

Good at first

Wesley E., Newegg
2 May 2013
  • Summary: You get what you pay for. A CHEAP product.
  • Pros: It worked flawlessly for the first week before it started making on and off noises.
  • Cons: Now it won't even turn on unless the cable is at some sort of perfect position that if a breeze blows by it will turn off again. I have a lot of important data on there that I can't even get off the hard drive because it won't turn on!
