Silicon Power Armor A10 Ultra Rugged Portable HDD

SILICON POWER™ Armor A10 Ultra Rugged Portable Drive: Built Like No Other

 

Taipei, Taiwan) Following their SSD success, Silicon Power announces the release of portable hard disk drives to further boost their already potent product lineup. Though SSDs seem destined to replace HDDs in the future, current SSD pricing makes them slightly out of reach when compared with traditional hard drives. Thus, Silicon Power releases their first traditional HDD in the form of the USB interface Armor A10.

 

As traditional HDDs are made up of delicate moving parts and are prone to damage from accidental shock and vibration. Considering this, Silicon Power's Armor A10 is built specifically to withstand shock and vibration. Tested in compliance with stringent US military MIL-STD-810F (transit drop test), tests include (1) free fall drop directly onto concrete or hard surfaces; (2) specific height free fall test (122cm); (3) product's 8 corners, 12 sides and 6 surfaces all must pass free fall tests. Silicon Power's Armor A10 has passed all the tests mentioned above and offers users a greater peace of mind when it comes to data security.

Armor A10 is compatible with USB 2.0 specifications with a maximum transfer rate rated at 480Mb per second and is backwards compatible with USB 1.1. Practicality wise, there is a one-touch backup button, LED status light indicating power / transfer statuses, password security from preloaded software and a 60-day Norton Antivirus trial software. Silicon Power's Armor A10 is designed to prevent data and the drive itself from damage, offering users the complete protection!
