The SH14 is a continuation of last year's industry-acclaimed waterproof and shockproof SH93 portable hard drive. The company is touting the super-tough exterior of the SH14, and is again targeting the on-the-go crowd whose active lifestyles call for shockproof performance. The SH14 offers a new approach to shock-resistant design, combining a modern style and a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface with military-grade shockproof and water-resistant construction. The result is a fashionable break from the cold and monotonous outer form often seen in drives of this class.

  • newegg IPX4 Water-Resistant Standard The SH14 has been put to the test against water penetration, with the USB port sealed by the silicone cover. The SH14 is then sprayed with water at all angles at 10liters per minute, at a pressure of 80-100kN for five minutes. After the spray test, the SH14 functions normally and free of mechanical failures.
  • newegg Military MIL-STD-810F Shockproof Standard The SH14 is tested with 26 drops on eight corners, 12 edges, and six surfaces individually, from a height of 122cm. Afterwards, it functions normally with no mechanical failures.
  • newegg SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Interface In performance terms, the SH14 is comparable to a 2.5-inch 5,400 RPM hard drive. Utilizing the new-generation USB 3.0 transfer interface, it achieves transfer rates up to 109MBps. Compared to a standard USB 2.0 device, backup of data files is nearly three times faster, with enhanced performance significantly reducing transmission time by 70%. Devices equipped with a USB 3.0 interface can quickly and easily read and write complete digital archive data anytime, anywhere.
  • newegg Free Software Download The OStoGO tool assists you by converting your Microsoft Windows 7 Installation DVD to ADATA portable storage devices, providing you the convenience of being able to quickly install Windows 7 via USB booting without the need for an optical drive. The powerful HDDtoGo tool synchronizes data, e-mails, and your favorites, affording you true mobility.
  • newegg Unique Design The exterior is constructed of silicone material in a curved grid pattern that provides a smooth, non-slip surface.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable!

Pros: Reliable, small, easy to use

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I've had this for about a year and it still works great. No problems and it's a nice size. I'm going to purchase another one to use as a secondary backup.

3 out of 5 eggsA little on the annoying side...

Pros: - Drop resistant rubber coat
- USB 3.0

Cons: - Short USB cable
- Poor connectivity between cable and HDD (See other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: The main problem with this drive is the cable and how poorly it secures to HDD. If you do not have the drive laying on a flat surface that is flush with the USB port on your computer, any awkward position will push the cable up or down just enough to break connection with your computer. I'm contemplating whether to RMA it or break the warranty and take it apart and put a small piece of electrical tape to mitigate the loose tolerances between the cable and the port on the HDD.

5 out of 5 eggsGood little drive

Pros: -USB 3.0 is fast
-small and good looking, very portable
-I've already dropped it once and its fine (haven't tried spilling water on it yet)
-doesn't seem to make much noise or get too hot

Cons: USB cord is kinda short (which led to me accidentally unplugging it and dropping it, but its fine)

Other Thoughts: Was only 90 when i bought it. Well worth it.
