What customers say about "Features"
Silicon Power Armor A30 2TB Rugged Portable External Hard Drive
  • I like the convenience of attaching the USB cable to the exterior so you don't have to find another place to store a cable.
  • There's 2 non-slip rubber channels on the base so that it wont slide around too much on your desk and the same soft silicone rubber on edges.
  • The drive is recognized immediately when you you plug it in with the included USB cable, with no initial setup required.
  • The marketing says its scratch resistant but I dont see that being a reality.
  • The plastic casing on top and bottom is your standard ABS so im sure you will be able to get a scratch or ding it over time.
