ADATA HD710A Dust/Water/Shock-proof USB 3.0 HDD

We have just posted up our review of the ADATA HD710A Dustproof, Waterproof and Shockproof external hard drive. This drive is IP68 rated and we drown it to find out if they are telling the truth. After that we drop in over a dozen times to find out if it's as rugged as they claim. It lives and we find out how fast this $70 drive is - after it takes a beating. Check our review for all the details.

Anything that is abused will break eventually. ADATA claims that this drive has "Military-grade Shockproof Protection" and cites US Military MIL-STD-810G as their reference. Exploring this shows that the drop is a 4-foot drop onto 2-inch thick plywood laid over concrete and I can say from experience that this drive would survive that drop distance all day long. Before we dropped this drive, we did stick it in a tub of pretty nasty rainwater... and it survived.
