ADATA has been in the business of developing memory and storage solutions for a dozen years and, in the process, has earned a reputation for producing high-quality devices. Its latest addition to the DashDrive lineup is the ADATA HV620 External Hard Drive. The HV620 is currently available in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities. In this review, Benchmark Reviews will take a closer look at the 2TB version of the ADATA DashDrive HV620 External Hard Drive and share the results of our testing. We will also take a closer look at its features, which include a scratch-proof surface, its glossy finish, and the raised lip around the perimeter of the device, which is meant to provide an added level of protection to the top of the HV620.


ADATA DashDrive HV620 External Hard Drive is not only available in different capacities, it also comes in both black or white glossy finishes. Considering that it is part of the DashDrive lineup and has a USB 3.0 interface, the assumption is that it is capable of high data transfer rates. We will find out how it performs by pitting it against a Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex External Hard Drive with a USB 3.0 interface.
