In this review we're covering the ADATA SE760, which was announced just a few weeks ago. Portable storage is growing into an important segment for consumers, as people are moving ever increasing amounts of data. While mechanical HDDs have offered terabyte-sized capacities for years, these drives are simply too slow for an enjoyable user experience due to their slow transfer rates—copying 1 TB of data at 100 MB/s takes 3 hours!
ADATA's SE760 uses the USB 3.2 Gen2 interface to support transfer rates of up to 1 GB/s, which can be a game changer if you have to copy a lot of data. Since the SE760 uses no moving parts, it is much more resilient to shock than a traditional HDD, and it also eliminates the seek-time bottleneck present on all hard drives.
Internally, ADATA is using a full-size M.2 NVMe SSD that seems to be identical to the SX6000 Pro (our review
). It uses a Realtek RTS5763DL controller paired with 64-layer 3D TLC NAND chips from Micron. To shuffle the data between NVMe and USB, a JMicron JMS583 USB-to-PCIe bridge is installed.
I couldn't find any offerings in the US for the ADATA SE760. In Europe, it is available in capacities of 256 GB (€77/$70), 512 GB (€117/$107), and 1 TB (€183/$168).
