1 out of 5 eggsGood drive, but...

This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Military Grade Portable Hard Drive SP500GBPHDA80S3B Blue

Pros: Good shock mounted drive will stand up under most abuse.

Cons: We need to learn a new paradigm on how to handle USB 3 connectors. This was my 1st USB 3 device. The connectors on the device, not the cable, are quite delicate. I see reports all over the Internet of the same problem. USB 3 device becomes intermittent, and then a few days later, fails entirely.

Other Thoughts: I had to remove my drive from the case, voiding warrantee, to recover the data I had backed up on the drive. That's how I know the shock mounting is so good!
