This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A15 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive (Meets Military Drop-test Standards) SP500GBPHDA15S3K Black

Pros: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A15 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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat hard drive

This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A15 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive (Meets Military Drop-test Standards) SP500GBPHDA15S3K Black

Pros: This Silicon Power external harddrive is great. Durable construction means you can throw it around, or let it bounce around in your backpack, briefcase, ect. and not have to worry about it. It's certainly has a fast USB 3.0 transfer speed just as it says but ONLY if your plugging into a USB 3.0 port.

Cons: Only downside I see is that the included cable only fits this harddrive therefore rendering it useless if you lost the cable.

Other Thoughts: If 500gb of space is enough for you and you need a mobile hard drive for travel and easily mobility, then this one is perfect, especially for the price.

2 out of 5 eggsNot What It Seems

This review is from: Silicon Power Rugged Armor A15 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive (Meets Military Drop-test Standards) SP500GBPHDA15S3K Black

Pros: Beautiful case, large capacity and attractively priced.

Cons: At least on my system, if the drive is plugged into the computer when it boots the drive is not recognized and has to be unplugged and then reattached. I thought this behavior might have something to do with the backup button and the related circuitry, which I had no need for anyway, so I took the case apart and was going to replace the drive interface with a simple USB 3.0 to SATA connector. After I took it apart I discovered a Toshiba MQ01ABD050 drive inside, which is a SATA 3.0Gb/s drive, not a SATA 6.0Gb/s drive. They make such a big point in their product description of the speed of this product - "the latest USB 3.0 interface feature a 5Gb/s bandwidth which is 10x the bandwidth of a USB 2.0 interface" - which is completely misleading. Yes, the USB 3.0 interface is state of the current art, but inside, where you can't see it, is an older generation drive that can't possibly match the speed of the interface.

Other Thoughts: False advertising at its most blatant. The interface you see is great, but the drive hidden inside behind the "you'll void your warranty" sticker can't use the interface's potential.
