Adata HV620 External Drive 2TB

The 2TB external hard drive from Adata comes with USB 3.0 connectivity and offers data transfer rate of 90Mb/s. In terms of design, one of the major drawbacks of this particular drive is its bulkiness. The drive is 30mm thick and weighs around 350 grams, which makes it one of the heaviest storage drives in this category. The device is not shock-resistant and does not offer password protection either. If we keep aside these things, the lesser-known brand’s product is known to offer consistent performance.  

Pros
  • Consistent data transfer speeds
Cons
  • Bulky design

Buyer's Guide

The choice of a hard drive might seem simple at first, but treat it lightly and losing your money would be the least of your woes. It is critical that you choose the right hard drive, based on what you will be doing with it. If it is just to store music and movies, meaning, it wont be constantly running, then you can get a choose based on price. However, when it comes to storing precious memories (photos and fmaily videos), we strongl recommend going with more known brands.

Additionally, if you know you will be moving a lot of files in and out of the drive, choosing to go with the fastest available port would be ideal. Today, there are drives equipedd with USB-C ports making many think that they'll get full throughput of 10gbps, but that may not be the case. Best is to settle for a USB 3.0 drive, which strikes the perfect balance between price and speed.
