It is that time of year again where we take the time to back all our important information up. What did you think I was talking about? If you are like me, you keep a copy of your personal documents on a portable HDD and kept somewhere else just in case (like a WD My Cloud). Even if you don't, the new ADATA DashDrive HD650 has some nice features if you are shopping for a portable drive for whatever you want to store.
The ADATA DashDrive HD650 is designed for those with more active use in mind. The scratch proof acrylic case can absorb impacts and shock thanks to its triple layer design. It uses the ultra fast USB 3.0 interface to ensure that the internal mechanical HDD is not restricted during transfers. It also draws power from the same port to maximize portability and cable clutter. This seems perfect for anyone with a slim Ultrabook/Notebook and perfect for photographers and videographers that work outdoors.
The ADATA DashDrive HD650 is available now in both scarlet red and sleek black. It'll come in a 500GB size for $59.99 US and 1TB size for $74.99 US. You can find it and other portable drives from the DashDrive lineup at many of your favourite retailers. I would go with the scarlet red as the color makes seems easier to keep track of when you are out and about. The full press release is posted below.
