ADATA DashDrive Durable HD710 External Hard Drive Review

Testing And Results

Like many many modern portable hard drives, The ADATA HD710 features a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface in tandem with a 5400 rpm hard disk. This results in possible transfer speeds of up 5 GB/s, provided one has the necessary hardware. We will run some tests on the HD710 and see if the results are consistent with that of the popular WD My Passport.

The image below shows the results of the Crystal DiskMark benchmark (HD710 on left, My Passport on right):ADATA 710 External HDD 7
It appears that the WD My passport just barely edges out over the HD710 in this test. The image below shows the results of the ATTO Disk Benchmark (HD710 on left, My Passport on right):

The results seem similar here: the My Passport performs slightly better than the HD710. The difference in performance isn’t very great and should not be the reason why you choose one over the other.
