One Fatal Flaw

Ryan Moyer, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this drive so I'd have something rugged and safe to store my pictures on that I could take with me. Something I could throw in my carry-on luggage and not worry about it getting banged around like you would with most hard drives. From that standpoint, it's been good.

not worth the hassle

Gabriela S., Newegg
10 June 2013
  • Summary: it's a decent drive when it works, but it is so sensitive to the slightest movement that it is useless as a mobile drive and barely functional as a desktop external.
  • Pros: cheap, rugged and shockproof. I don't worry about it moving around in my bag. the short cable forces me to leave it near my laptop or any work computer which means I won't forget it anywhere.
  • Cons: almost immediately, I noticed that the usb cable attachment is flimsy. The slightest move detaches the drive from my laptop. I use it as a work drive so it's imperative that I can access my files on a continuous basis. If I put my mbp to sleep, the drive fails to load on waking my laptop and I ha...

Not impressed

Mark Klopf, Amazon
22 January 2013
  • Summary: I have had multiple issues with random disconnects while moving files across to it. last weekend I had to move nearly 2 TB of files off a server to set up a new RAID 5 array and while using this one it would randomly just disconnect.

Nothing that isn't there on any other USB 3 drive, hardly shock and water proof

JDThird, Amazon
22 January 2013
  • Summary: The rubberized cover on this (the black / yellow around the edges that leaves just the middle swath uncovered) is cheap and flimsy, and not even adhered to the drive - so it pulls away.

Avoid, get another model/brand!!!

Miguel Solano-Romagosa, Amazon
22 January 2013
  • Summary: The first months everything was fine until the cable connection started failing. I can't believe how this has been flagged as a military/rugged device when not even the basic connection works properly. Very disappointing!

Creative Idea, Average Realization, NewEgg Failure

Alex C., Newegg
16 November 2012
  • Summary: I can see the disadvantage of having the combination of a mini USB port and a short USB cable from the comparison of the HD710 with the SiliconPower Rugged Armor A80 portable drive (that has regular USB port and long USB cable). I have both of these drives.
  • Pros: It is a creative idea to place the plastic enclosure of the HD710 in an uncommon silicone material that protects the drive from the damage and stores a wrap-around USB cable. Low price during sales ($69.99 after rebate). Plug and play in Win XP/Vista/7 without problems. HDD: Seagate ST1000LM024 H...
  • Cons: I have been using this drive for 6 months and the experience has been: The silicon material starts to come off because of the bad, dot glue. It is hard to properly close the mini USB port by the silicon cover and I don’t recommend water proof experiments. The main body of the enclosure is made of...
