DashDrive Elite HE720 Testing and Results

As nice-looking as the DashDrive Elite HE720 is, if it cannot take advantage of the fast USB 3.0 bandwidth then it is going to be of limited value. Fortunately the product makes good use of the USB 3.0 port, and averages between 90 and 100 MB per second in both read and write operations.

The screenshot below shows the results of a CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 benchmark test with greater than 90 MB per second in both directions.

Similarly, the ATTO disk benchmark below shows consistently fast read and write performance once the block size becomes sufficiently large.

Another use for a portable drive like this is to attach it to a smart HDTV with a USB interface for media file access. Testing the DashDrive Elite HE720 with a smart Samsung HDTV produced error-free results, with all available media files showing up quickly in the HDTV media browser.
