ADATA HE720 DashDrive Elite 1 TB External USB 3.0 HDD Review

Rating: 8.0.

The ADATA DashDrive Elite HE720 1 TB USB 3.0 external enclosure is the slimmest USB 3.0 HDD on the market, measuring in at only 8.9mm thick. If you aren't already backing up your important data to an external hard drive, is this ADATA DashDrive one that should be making your shortlist?

We have previously reviewed the 500 GB model of the HE720 series and were impressed with the features, including the professional-looking brushed Stainless Steel surface with a scratch resistant coating. Additionally, the HE720 incorporates a USB 3.0 connection and should offer excellent read/write performance. We will analyse this later in the review.
