We've already parted with a fair amount of loot this month: first a 1kW XFX power supply and an AMD FX-8350 CPU, and then some sweet Corsair peripherals. But we're not done yet. It's time for another contest—and another shot at free hardware.
This week's goodies include two storage devices from Adata, the DashDrive Durable HD710 1TB and DashDrive Elite UE700 64GB. Both will be sent to one lucky winner.
The DashDrive Durable is an external USB 3.0 hard drive that's both shock-resistant and waterproof. Adata claims it can stay submerged under a meter of water for "up to 30 minutes." This drive also has a groove around the edge to store the included USB 3.0 cable, and it costs $99.99 at Newegg. As for the DashDrive Elite, that specimen is Adata's quickest USB 3.0 thumb drive. It's rated for peak transfer rates of 200MB/s during reads and 100MB/s during writes, and it retails for $64.99.
