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 ...

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.
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.
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...
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.
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!
