Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet and rugged, it does exactly what it's supposed to do. I've used it on 1 desktop and 2 laptops, USB3 and USB2, with no problems at all. I have had it running for a week at a time, it stayed merely warm and performed without error.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This does exactly what it says it will do.

Kingston DataTraveler Micro 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTMCK/16GB

5 out of 5 eggs Tiny useful storage 12/13/2012

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Micro 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTMCK/16GB

Pros: Tiny, simple, no problems at all.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I use this in my car where the thumb drive sticks out of the faceplate of the stereo. Cars are moving, chaotic places, and having a regular thumb drive sticking out has lead to disaster in the past. The DT Micro hides completely out of the way.

Silicon Power Rugged Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small, sturdy, quiet. I could feel it running when I held it, but the only other indication it was on was the power/activity LED. Great capacity for the price.

Cons: Still a spinning magnetic media, so it's not as fast as an SSD would be. But since no SSD will match is price for years, this really isn't a Con.

Other Thoughts: I configured this to be an encrypted disk on Linux, and filled the disk with random data. It ran writing continuously for a week without problems.

Works with USB2 at 20+MBps write, about 28MBps read. My motherboard's USB3 port achieved 20-40MBps write, 45+MBps read speeds. The fluctuations in the speeds seem to be due to buffers being flushed, so the write speed indicator never stabilized.

One interesting note, I reformatted in NTFS yesterday as a test, it only reached 75% complete after 9 hours when I had to stop. Formatting in EXT4 took less than 15 minutes.
