    Thanks for the Review.
    It is a little disappointing that it requires that certain types of streaming to be thru a specific app.

    It would have been nice to at least include some comparison data from another USB 3.0 HDD.

    In one section there is a statement: “The primary function of the ADATA DashDrive Air AE800 is not to serve as an external hard drive.”. This sort of seems counter to the device’s name.

    But overall, the review is appreciated.
