ADATA launches HD720 rugged external hard drive

The well-known Taiwanese maker of computer memory and various computer peripheral devices ADATA has released the new HD720 rugged external hard drive. The drive supports USB 3.0 connectivity and comes in several models with the top one offering 2 TB of capacity.

The main feature of the HD720 is its ability to survive in tough conditions, which makes it ideal for people who travel often or spend a lot of time in the wilderness. The HD720 complies with all IEC/EN 60529 IP68 specifications and requirements. This means the hard drive is completely dust-proof and users will never have to worry about maintenance or anything like it. In addition the new ADATA hard drive can spend up to 120 minutes submerged in water at depths of up to 2 meters (6.6 feet). But there’s more – the ADATA HD720 also surpasses the strict MIL-STD-810G standard – the drive can survive sudden violent drops and crashes from as high as 1.8 meters (5.94 feet), while the standard sets a drop height of just 1.2 meters (3.96 feet).

To achieve this, the HD720 comes housed in a custom-weaved flexible silicone chassis that has three layers for serious shock resistance. There’s a G Shock sensor as well that stops all read/write operations when there’s a shock that goes beyond a preset threshold. This eliminates data loss and the normal operations continue after the shock has subsided.

All is good except one thing – there isn’t any information on how much the different versions of the HD720 cost. So if you are interested you will have to check with your local ADATA reseller to find out.
