ADATA announces release of HV100 external HDD

ADATA releases software-included external HDD's to the market
By: Chris Smith | Storage News | Posted: Dec 2, 2014 1:08 am

As according to a press release sent by ADATA HQ this week - they're launching a new stylish series of external hard drives, including 500GB, 1TB and 2TB iterations.




These hard drives come bundled with ADATA's own OStGO and HDDtoGO software, alongside a bright blue/red LED to indicate data transfer status. We've been told that these drives come packed with G Shock Sensor Protection to help protect your device, alongside a three year manufacturer warranty.


Named the HV100 series, this drive is being marketed as a sleek option to help you back up important data - being quoted as "compact, lightweight, smooth and stylish". One of the main features talked about quite often in this press release is all based around its shock protection qualities, stating that once a disturbance has been detected, a flashing red light will be displayed. Once the threat has passed, the hard drive will continue to function as normal.


As expected, these drives come with USB 3.0 support, alongside allowing for backward-compatibility to USB 2.0 in case it's needed.


The OStoGO software provided with this device enables you to install a portable version of Windows on the disk - allowing you to take your OS with you as you travel.


There is no mentioned retail price for this product, we suggest checking your local retailers.
