While they couldn't get their hands on an APC like one site did, The Tech Report did their best to test the resilience of the Adata DashDrive Durable HD710. They tested both the water resistance as well as its ability to absorb shocks by dropping the drive onto both laminate flooring and a nice refreshing drink of water. The bath was quite effective at washing off the crud it accumulated on the floor but there were no problems using the drive even after it had been abused. Even better, it performed quite well, especially on single threaded file transfers. You can see the whole review here.
"Adata's DashDrive Durable HD710 puts a terabyte of storage inside a shock-resistant, waterproof enclosure with a USB 3.0 port. We take a closer look to see if it can survive everyday abuse."
