TAIPEI, WEDNESDAY – If you are adventurous, or your job requires you to go in and out of the woods or visit muddy/hard to reach locations, you need a durable portable hard drive. One product that can be glimpsed is Silicon Power Armor A15.
This USB 3.0 portable hard disk is protected by a layer of silica gel that can absorb shocks and vibrations. The A15 has also passed the US military standard MIL-STD-810F (transit drop test), including a direct drop test on a concrete floor or hard surface, dropped from a height of 122cm. So if the A15 falls from a slippery surface or hits the ground, for example, you don’t have to worry about the data inside being damaged. In order not to be slippery when held, both sides of the A15 are designed to be wavy so that they are steady to hold.
To make backups easier, Silicon Power has embedded a one-touch backup function as well as special software. An LED will light up as a power/transfer status indicator. According to Silicon Power, the transfer speed of the A15 can reach 5Gb/s.
Coming in a mix of black and neon green, the A15 stands out. You can choose between a capacity of 500GB, 750G, or 1TB. If you buy Silicon Power Armor A15, you will get a link to download the SP Widget software and the Norton Antivirus trial software for free.
Oh yes, this portable hard disk weighing 200 grams is guaranteed for three years. You can use it on Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Linux 2.6.31 or higher operating systems, MacOS 10.5 or higher (only supports USB 2.0).
