Silicon Power Armor A80 USB 3.0 portable hard drive
Silicon Power has unveiled a new external portable hard drive called the Armor A80. The new HDD uses a USB 3.0 interface and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 as well. The HDD is rugged, meets US military standards for drop survivability, and is water resistant to IPX7 standards.
The HDD can be submerged in water up to a meter deep for as long as 30 minutes without any damage. The USB 3.0 connectivity allows the driver to support up to 5Gbps of data transfer. Other features include a LED light to show drive activity and an integrated USB cable that tucks into the side of the drive chassis.
The drive measures 139 x 96 x 18mm and weighs 270g. The drive gets all the power it needs directly from the USB port so no AC adapters are needed. The drive is offered in 640GB, 500GB, or 320GB and it comes in blue color. Pricing and availability are unknown.
