What customers say about "Key Specs"
Silicon Power Armor A80 1TB Rugged Portable External Hard Drive
  • I have around 10TB worth of hard drives, and this is the best of them.
  • Support the large volume of music and at the same time present me with the comfort and confidence in knowing I have an external HDD.
  • Definitely, the Armor A80 is faster than the transcend.
  • The speeds of the drive are all spot on and was tested.
  • I never dropped it. I never stored it in a hot car. I bought a hard shell case for it and took care of it. But one day it just didn't work!
ADATA HD710 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive
  • Work well out of the box,well constucted USB cord,room for lot of files.
  • Transfers file at about 70 mb per second. Like the rubber edge for protection.
  • Capacity is hight and size is ok (a bit wider than most 2.5 external drives, but that's due to the extra protection).
  • The drive shows amazing performance, which made me very happy.
  • Unfortunately, the transmission speed was very low.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Silicon Power Armor A80 1TB Rugged Portable External Hard Drive
  • I carry two of these drives and bungie them together in a bank deposit size tool bag with the cords, fits perfectly.
  • I think this rugged little drive is very worthwhile.
  • I was very pleased to see the sleek, clean, ergonomic design but at the same time I could tell that this unit holds a solid quality feel.
  • This nifty little guy is very high quality and rugged. The chassis(case) is an alloy and is very durable.
  • It's a little heavy but that was a fine trade-off for all the space it saved me.
ADATA HD710 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive
  • Light weight, fast, nice size. Fits well in my computer case.
  • It is the perfect size and matches my computer. I use it to store all of my Xbox videos to edit later. Works Great!
  • Good size. The rubber coating is nice. May help save the hard drive from random spin failure. The rubber casing also holds the cord so it stays in one nice piece.
  • The product was in good condition and used for fast and secure transfer of information, good size, lightweight, easy to carry.
  • Perfect compact size that you can easily take with you anywhere.

What customers say about "Features"
Silicon Power Armor A80 1TB Rugged Portable External Hard Drive
  • It's survived many a trip on set (including several occasions when it's been dropped), which is not an easy environment.
  • Really appreciate that cable fits in the side compartment.
  • Most honest and accurate information I've seen anywhere on data backup.
  • Over USB 3.0 this is nearly as fast as an internal hard drive to hard drive transfer.
  • After multiple hours of backups, this thing is still cool to the touch.
ADATA HD710 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive
  • Very convenient, large size, and cable stows nicely.
  • It is well protected with flexible cover and the port hatch cover keeps the cable ports clean and dry.
  • It is rugged though I have yet to check water resistance quality.
  • Love the fact the cable has a spot on the edge of the case.
  • USB 3 is slow. I didn't buy it for that though.
