   With storage media devices exceeding the 2TB mark as we speak (portable hard drives to be more specific) it's only natural and quite expected to be honest for the majority of people to pick the ideal one for them solely based on the price/capacity ratio. However if you happen to be a professional or even an enthusiast things get far more complicated since for them performance and durability seriously outweigh price and capacity. Unfortunately although most if not all portable hard drive manufacturers do focus quite a bit in the performance end not many focus in durability so there really aren't many exceptions in the market as we speak. Silicon Power is perhaps the only portable hard drive manufacturer that designs and manufacturers new rugged models all the time aimed towards the more demanding users and today we're taking a closer look at their latest Armor A65 1TB USB 3.0 PHD.

   Whenever we received a portable hard drive by Silicon Power that carries the name Armor we know that it will be yet another rugged model with an highly durable housing. Well the A65 features an IEC529 IP67 certified housing (dustproof and waterproof up to 1m) which can keep your data safe since it can withstand drops from up to 122cm and on 26 contact points ((conforms to the MIL-STD-810G 516.6 procedure IV) thanks to the exterior hard drive protective shell (an anti-slip rubber layer is also present) and interior shock-absorbing suspension system.
