ADATA DashDrive Durable UD320 USB OTG Flash Drive Review

With the number of gadgets inside the household, transferring files between devices can sometimes be a hassle. ADATA sent their 32 GB DashDrive Durable UD320 USB OTG Flash Drive for us to test. Check out how the ADATA USB OTG flash drive provided a much faster way of transferring data between smartphones and other devices on our post below.

The DashDrive Durable UD320 USB OTG flash drive is smaller than regular flash drives. Its got a glossy hard plastic body with chiseled tips. Removing the cap will reveal the micro-USB adapter with the USB drive attached to the bottom.

The USB Drive when detached is smaller than the size of a one peso coin. With its size, it’s easy to lose the device. Good thing ADATA has included a hook that allows you to attach the USB OTG to your ID lanyard or keychain. Just be careful not to lose the removable cap. Some USB OTG flash drives have the micro-USB and USB on opposite sides and without the cap.

Using the DashDrive Durable UD320 USB OTG Flash Drive is straight forward. Just plug the USB OTG on your smartphone and the smartphone will automatically detect the USB OTG and open the file explorer. Just make sure to remove the USB OTG properly everytime to prevent data loss by sliding down the notification bar on your mobile phone’s home screen and tapping the context menu.

Speed wise, it took me 1 minute and 20 seconds to transfer a 1 GB movie file from my smartphone to the USB OTG. The A1 SD Bench recorded an average 16.92MB/s read and 15.77MB/s write speeds on the USB OTG.

The ADATA DashDrive Durable UD320 USB OTG Flash Drive provides a more convenient and faster way of transferring movies, photos, files and other data between your smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC and other devices without the need for a cable or adaptor. Aside from providing faster data transfer speeds compared to Bluetooth or WiFi file transfer, the ADATA USB OTG also extends your smartphone’s storage and allows you to store, backup and even access, browse files, listen to music or watch movies directly from the USB OTG flash drive.

The 32 GB ADATA DashDrive Durable UD320 USB OTG Flash Drive has an SRP of USD 25 or around Php 1,100+ but I’ve seen some retailers and local stores selling it online at a cheaper price.

    What’s the purpose of plugging the cap – normal usb to laptop / PC? It allows wireless transfer from android devices to PC / laptop?

  2. This looks good. Which online local stores did you see this being sold in, sir? I’ve only seen this in OLX (PHP850 but 16GB only) and Octagon which didn’t show the price. Thank you.
