Summary: I bought this several years ago. I barely used it. I took it out to use it recently and it would not work at all. I tried it in several different computers and with different cables. So this barely used, supposed to be very tough drive failed after sitting around for a couple of years.

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.
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 ...
Summary: Find a different drive to purchase and just take care of it. I should have known this was a mistake from the beginning.
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 ...
Absolute garbage, Don't buy this if you are looking for a HD hard drive able to survive a deployment.

Summary: Very cheaply put together. Appears to be a standard hard drive with ADATA livery hot glued to to exterior. Failed during the first backup of a 500gb hd in a 70°F room. Calling this military-spec is just a catch word like you would see on a childrens toy.

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.
Summary: Bought this new at a local retail store and was assured it was the best on the market. Both water and bump proof... I did not buy because of these "features" dont intend to find out if it is water proof or otherwise... just need a portable 1TB that does not require an AC adapter.
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.
