The average person in the United States carries around a huge amount of data with them. Personally, I have a smartphone with 16GB of internal space, with a 32GB micro SD card in it, and numerous flash drives of varying sizes. I may not be completely average, since I am in the tech business, but even just the cell phone's internal space would allow for over four thousand pictures to be stored. As you can imagine, no one would want to lose their precious data, so it is important to backup the information to another device.

Backing up a few thousand photos does not really take much room, but then you get into the size of videos, or audio files. Videos are a whole different issue, considering that 10 minutes of video at 1080p is often over 1GB in size, so that same 16GB would not hold much. Thankfully we have much larger external devices to use as backup devices, ranging from flash memory to large mechanical hard drives.

The ADATA DashDrive HV620 external hard drive is available in 500GB, 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB sizes. The DashDrive HV620 is packaged in a small form package with a glossy black casing. We all know how glossy finishes tend to scratch. ADATA has a solution for that by putting a lip around the drive so the finish does not make contact with the surface it is sitting on. The status indicator for the drive is a bright blue LED that clearly indicates when the drive is powered and transferring data. It connects through the latest USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface for both power and data transfer. The USB 3.0 interface provides all the speed that is necessary for most modern applications, but especially backing up your data.
