1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Military Grade Portable Hard Drive SP010TBPHDA80S3B Blue

Pros: None, DOA.

Cons: DOA. Bought this to replace a failing, older 500 GB external hard drive and fails to be recognized. Plug it directly in to my Surface Pro 2 and you can feel it vibrate a little bit but nothing else.

Other Thoughts: Wish I could give it 0 Eggs.

This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Military Grade Portable Hard Drive SP010TBPHDA80S3B Blue

Pros: Small and compact.

Cons: Dies after a year. In my opinion, it's worthless since these seem to have less than a year life span.

5 out of 5 eggsSilicon Power Rugged Armor 1TB External Hard Drive is a great device

This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Military Grade Portable Hard Drive SP010TBPHDA80S3B Blue

Pros: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 1TB 2.5-Inch USB 3.0 Drop Tested MIL-STD-810F Military Grade External Hard Drive, Black is a great device. This external hard-drive is very light weight and holds a 1 Terabyte of data. This drive was actually drop tested to military standard. This hard-drive was drop tested on 26 contact points (8 corners, 12 cut surfaces and 6 major surfaces). This is great I will get a lot of use out of it. I am glad I have this product and would definitely recommend it to others.

Thank you reading my review.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat tough drive

This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Military Grade Portable Hard Drive SP010TBPHDA80S3B Blue

Pros: > Great design. USB 3.0 connectors are very solidly built. I had problems with competitive drives and pins breaking. This drive has very solid connectors. Difficult to accidentally break pins.
> Comes with both a long (2ft) and short (4") USB 3.0 cables. I use the long cable more often than not.

Cons: > Wish it had a rubberized case.
> Cannot think of reason why 4" cable would be useful to people.

Other Thoughts: I do not understand why people are worried about the particular 3.0 cable that comes with the drive. It's not terribly difficult to get a replacement. The internets people! It's for finding stuff!

1 out of 5 eggsDied 1 year later

This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Military Grade Portable Hard Drive SP010TBPHDA80S3B Blue

Pros: Worked for about 12 months

Cons: Died about one year after purchasing. Precipitous decline in final days. Bad sectors, lost data, then just died. Can't access the drive at all. Working on getting a replacement now, but what a hassle to deal with the unexpected loss of this data so prematurely.

This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Military Grade Portable Hard Drive SP010TBPHDA80S3B Blue
