Taiwanese computer components and peripherals manufacturer Adata has launched its latest products in India, the HD710M Pro and HD710A Pro portable hard drives. The 1TB variants of these hard drives are priced at Rs 7,999, and are marketed as part of the company’s durable series of hard drives, thus making them ideal for rough use, including outdoor implementations.

The hard drives come with a waterproof and dustproof rating that is claimed to be exceeding IP68 standards, as well as military-grade shockproofing. Adata claims that the HD710 series can be submerged in up to 2m of water for up to 60 minutes, and will survive falls from up to 1.5m heights. This is thanks to a triple-layer construction, which protects the actual hard drive from the elements and rough use.

These hard drives would be typically well-suited for outdoor use; it would work well for anyone that works in the field, such as photographers or engineers that work in typically rough conditions. The strong resistance to the elements means that users can rest easy knowing that the data stored on the drives is safe. Additionally, the drives have special compatibility for Apple devices, thanks to having the Apple HFS+ system built-in. The hard drive itself isn’t an SSD solution, instead using a tradition hard drive inside.
