Last year we took a look at a very sexy external hard drive from ADATA. The DashDrive Elite HE720 was a great external hard drive, but it was limited by the mechanical hard drive that was inside of it. Well ADATA is back with the DashDrive Elite SE720, which looks almost identical to the HE720, but what’s under the hood is completely different. This time with the SE720 ADATA has packed it with a 128 GB solid state drive. That means you will not be limited by the hard drive that is inside and this will be one of the fastest external drives we have ever tested! How fast? Read on to find out!

An external hard drive is something that is always in my laptop bag. With smaller devices like tablets and Ultrabooks becoming more popular the hard drives inside are much smaller than what you will find in a desktop. External hard drives give you that extra storage space that you need and are usually small enough to fit in your laptop bag or backpack. Today we are checking out the DashDrive Choice HC630 500GB External Hard Drive from ADATA. This drive not only has an attractive outer-casing, but it features a high speed USB 3.0 connection for fast transfers. Read on as we take a look…

The Dropbox-like functionality of this will remain similar to that of its predecessor which can be termed as the bigger version of this one.

Who says you can never have enough storage. Well you really can not have too much. I myself have a few different computers around my house for different tasks, and I like to back them up and also share files over the network. External hard drives and enclosures are a great tool for keeping around your house or even on the go. There are so many different enclosures and NAS boxes on the market. Some do RAID, other’s do JBOD, some can hold only 1 drive and some can go up to 4 drives. Some of the cool things with the technology of the past few years is that we now have eSATA and USB 3.0. USB 3.0 offers up to 5 Gbps while eSATA offers less speed at around 3 Gbps. So today we will be reviewing the Vantec NexStar HX2R dual SATA Hard Drive Enclosure, so stick around and see if it would make a nice addition to your desk or office.
