ADATA DashDrive Elite HE720 review -
So ADATA has been updating USB storage line. Here's the marketing snippet from the company itself.
Sporting a brushed stainless steel surface, and with a record-breaking slim profile of only 8.9mm thickness, the DashDrive Elite HE720 demonstrates once again the ADATA’s consistently strong ability to combine top performance with style.
The brushed metal case with protective layer provides 9H scratch resistance, which prevents damage and marring even after long-term use.
The DashDrive Elite HE720 features “One touch backup” function which automatically backs up and synchronizes data with one easy touch. The HE720 is equipped with a bright blue LED indicator which shines through the transmission process to indicate power and data transfer status. Large capacities of 500GB, the equivalent of 100 DVD movie disc storage, means that consumers don't have to worry about insufficient hard drive capacity when performing backups, meeting the storage needs for high-quality, high-resolution audio and video content.
The DashDrive Elite HE720’s USB 3.0 interface offers transfer efficiency up to three times that of older USB 2.0 devices, but retains full backward compatibility with earlier versions. Compared to USB 2.0, in file read/write or data backup, transmission time can be significantly reduced up to 70%.
