5 out of 5 eggsWatch the cable, enjoy the drive

This review is from: Silicon Power Armor A30 1TB USB 3.0 Black Shockproof Portable Hard DriveSP010TBPHDA30S3K - Retail

Pros: Bought two of these (2TB version) through another account. Both are working fine with the exception of one cable (more on that later). The enclosure has excellent construction, and it is very easy to break down if I have to replace the drive in the future.

The inner rubber lining (orange bit on the black version) is more like a cage that continues underneath the plastic cover, and there are foam spacers between the cover and the hard drive as part of the suspension.

With USB 3.0, speeds seem to peek around 100MB/s and average in the low to mid 90s. This is on m4v video transfers from a WD 2TB 7200rpm backup drive. Very satisfactory for my intentions as a college backup drive.

Cons: One of the cables that came with the drives refuses to pass USB 3.0. Luckily I had a few USB 3.0 superspeed enabled computers and two drives for comparison, so I tested both thoroughly, swapping cables, drives, computers, different files, etc. Whatever the cause, it occurs only with the cable in question, and operates at USB 2.0 speeds or less. Transfer rates seemed to hover in the low 20s.

I'd suggest tacking on a spare USB 3.0 cable to your order when you buy this drive. If the stock cable fails you have an instant replacement. If you somehow misplace the original, you have a spare.

Other Thoughts: I suspect this case will be with me a long after the drive passes MTBF (if I'm lucky). I would still have to physically verify that any old 2.5" SATA can work with the interface board by Silicon Power though.
