Silicon Power Armor A80 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review

Admin Topics 176

The A80 is no stranger to us since roughly 2 years ago we received the 1TB model which really blew us away not only thanks to its impressive read & write performance but also thanks to its IEC 529 IPX7 shockproof housing which provides the highest protection we’ve seen so far for a 2.5″ portable hard drive. To be more precise the housing of the A80 is virtually waterproof (1m underwater test), dustproof, shockproof (conforms to the MIL-STD-810F 516.5 procedure IV – also 300cm drop certified) and can even withstand pressure of up to 300kg (back when we reviewed the 1TB variant of the A80 i passed over it with my car). If you’ve been reading our PHD reviews lately then you know that we’ve mentioned quite a few times in the past that we’d love to test the 2TB variant of the A80 PHD to see how it compares with all the other 2TB models released by Silicon Power so since it’s finally here let’s do exactly that.
