A-DATA claims that their recently introduced DashDrive Elite HE720 is also the world’s thinnest external hard drive, and I leave the commenting floor open to the rest of our dear readers to counter that claim or to further strengthen it. Well, one thing’s for sure though, the DashDrive Elite HE720 is definitely a thing of beauty from the moment you lay your eyes on it, where this USB 3.0 compatible device is sleek enough that it already looks fast without having you plug it into your computer.
Boasting a brushed stainless steel surface with a chassis that measures just 8.9mm thin, the DashDrive Elite HE720’s protective layer provides 9H scratch resistance, which is said to prevent damage even after long-term use. Perhaps Apple might want to look into this and see whether they can incorporate a similar material and build quality in their next iPhone, don’t you think so? A bright blue LED indicator will let you know of power and data transfer status, while other features include one-touch backup, USB 3.0 connectivity, and being eligible for a free download of the latest Norton Internet Security 2012 anti-virus software (albeit this is just a 60 day trial version). Not only that, throw in a 3 year warranty service and you’ve more or less got yourself a winner here.
Expect the DashDrive Elite HE720 to retail for $89.99 if you are interested.
