ADATA DashDrive Elite 500GB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Review

Rating: 8.0.

The ADATA DashDrive Elite HE720 500GB USB 3.0 external enclosure is the slimmest of its kind, measuring in at only 8.9mm thick. It also sports a professional-looking brushed Stainless Steel surface with a scratch resistant coating. The company have also added a ‘One Touch Backup’ which as the name suggests allows the user to back up essential data with a single touch.

Couple all this with a USB 3.0 connection, some simple backup software and it should offer great all-round performance.
