We have already seen that hard drive-based portable drives need not always be delicate to handle, some are real toughies. Well, we have one such drive with us today and this time it is the A-DATA Superior SH93 that has a humungous 640GB of data storage. This makes it the largest 2.5-inch portable drive we have ever laid our hands on. Being rugged does not mean it is boring, as the design is quite stylish with a USB 2.0 interface that can be sealed off to protect from water. We have the review ready for you, so read on to find out whether its performance matches its ruggedness.
A-Data does not provide a software CD with this drive, instead the software needs to be downloaded from the website. While a USB data cable is provided with the drive, it would have been better to provide a Y type cable just in case the USB port is not able to provide enough power to drive this 640GB drive. The SH93 comes packed in a transparent blister pack through which you can see the drive within.
