5 out of 5 eggsHappy so far

Pros: Running VirtualBox VM's off it and it performs better then my caviar black. No complaints and I'm looking to buy another for a backup solution. I use this drive for my work everyday as a software engineer and I need multiple vm's for different client sites. Nice and lightweight and I don't need to carry around a bulky portable bay anymore.

Cons: non so far

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Drive

Pros: Over 2 years old and still going strong

Cons: None after 2 years.

Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these to back up two computers. A Mac tower, and a Notebook PC. I rotate the drives out so I always have a 'fresh' backup. I'm a pro, and cannot afford to lose anything. (I don't know anyone who can, but you know what I mean.) I bought these because they are rugged, and priced well. I am buying two more soon because now I need to back up my network too. Those will be the 2TB. I'm not hesitating.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat and rugged

Pros: Very rugged, this hdd survived my 2 deployments to the middle east, including falling down a flight of metal stairs. After over a year it still works everytime I plug it in. Not the fastest hard drive in the world, but great for travelling. Very solid construction, had no problem in very dirty/dusty environments.

Cons: Again, not super fast. Also emits a high pitch noise when plugged in (pretty sure this is the hard drive writing etc)

Other Thoughts: This is a great hard drive for military/contractors and the like who may have to endure very dusty areas, and have a higher risk of dropping it

1 out of 5 eggs

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.

1 out of 5 eggscrapola

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

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.

Cons: Nothing

4 out of 5 eggsGreat tough drive

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!
