Sometimes, it can be hard to decide between quality hardware and a dazzling design, but what if you could have the best of both worlds? Imagine all the specs of the ADATA HD830 with some cool upgrades and with a much more stylish design.

First of all, inside of the box along with the hard drive, we have a USB 3.2 cable and a Quick Start guide.

Brilliant RGB Design

Even though this hard drive was not made specifically for gaming, it has a lot of aspects that make it look like it was, starting with its distinct chamfered edges and two light-beam-shaped RGB strips that will make your hard drive look brilliant. The HD770G is the world’s first durable RGB external HDD in the market. In addition, between the two strips, we can find a perforated pattern that comes to life as the RGB lighting pulsates.

The HD770G also has a rubber surface, which ADATA has named the anti-shock silicone, which adds long-lasting durability to the drive. This is super important for keeping your data safe and secure, no matter how harsh the conditions.

This hard drive was built to watch your back even in the toughest of battles. It can survive a fall from up to 1.5 meters high, protecting not only your files but its exterior as well. The HD770G comes available in a black design and a red design, so you can choose the one that fits your style.

Storage Capacity, Speed, and Durability

Now, let’s see if this hard drive is also a good option when it comes to technical specifications. The HD770G offers memory capacities of 1TB or 2TB. Considering its design, you’d consider it to be quite heavy – both the 1TB and 2TB versions weigh in at 270g. But the important thing is that they offer plenty of storage capacity so you can carry all your games around with you. That way, you don’t have to worry anymore about the limited storage of your PS4 or XBox console.

And for those who are wondering, the HD770G comes with a 3-year warranty. After running a quick speed test, the results are 122 MB/s write and 120 MB/s read. The HD770G also offers built-in technologies such as AES Encryption which allows you to password protect your hard drive, keeping your data safe and sound.

Featuring protection ratings which exceeds IP68, the HD770G comes with the ultimate protection, safeguarding your games and data from dust and water. Much like the HD830, the HD770G also meets the MIL-STD-810G 516.6 standard, which means that it’s protective capabilities are on the same level as military-grade equipment. So basically, this hard drive was literally built for war.

In fact, it can handle up to 120 minutes underwater with airtight port covers that prevent any leakage from occurring, unlike other troublesome port covers that we can find in other external drives. It also comes with triple-layer protection which consists of a shock-absorbing silicone casing, sturdy buffer and a cushioned mounting, so no matter how sloppy you are, this external hard drive will survive no matter how intense your battles get.


To wrap things up, this hard drive is perfect for those gamers who need extra space for their games or any other data you might need to store. I love the fact that even though I can be quite sloppy with my belongings sometimes, the HD770G just makes me feel so confident – through rain or shine, I know that my hard drive will always be there for me.

When it comes to specs, performance, and transfer speed, this hard drive isn’t lacking in any way. In fact, the HD770G is among one of the better external hard drives I’ve used to date.
