Armor for Your Data

Protection Against the Elements

These drives are called "Armor" for a reason--they're protected against nearly anything you can dish out, even the unexpected. The Armor A80 is compliant with IPX7 waterproof standards, meaning it can be under a meter of water for 30 minutes and still function fully. It's also dust- and pressure-proof. That means your data is safe from unexpected spills, rain, dustier spaces, or most any other environmental concern.

Military Drop-Test Compliant

The Armor A80 is also compliant with MIL-STD-810F 516.5 procedure IV, aka the "transit drop test." What does that mean? It means the A80 was tested for direct drops onto concrete floors or harder surfaces, and (on a drop-test machine) freefalls from a height of about 48 inches. 26 contact points in all are tested (8 corners, 12 cut surfaces, and 6 major surfaces).

Ultra-Fast Transfer Speeds

Armor A80's outstanding read/write speed is coupled with the latest USB 3.0 interface (backwards compatible with USB 2.0). The USB 3.0 interface features a 5 Gbps/sec bandwidth, ten times that of a USB 2.0 interface. It saves users precious time backing up to (and from) the hard drive, and makes transferring giant files a snap.

Easy to Use

The Armor A80 design makes it a breeze to use. Easily take it wherevery you go with a convenient cable carry design. Plug and Play operation means it's recognized as storage by your computer with no additional drivers required. No "wall-wart" adapter is required, either, since the drive is powered via the USB bus.

after hours researching online, this drive came up number one for robust performance. I move around a lot with my work, and my backup drive needs to be able to withstand a reasonable amount of abuse. This drive is extremely simple, and meets military specifications and also doesn't look like a transformer (not really keen to be whipping out an ugly milspec drive when sitting in a media company boardroom in NYC).

The vendor was offering this device at less than half price at the time of ordering, so it was a no-brainer.

Love it. It' quiet, doesn't heat up, and does what it's supposed to do without any problems. It feels very sturdy and well made. I have not tested it for survival of impact, dust, or water.

Update:
I'm reducing my rating to 4 stars because the black plastic on the sides has cracked at each of the 4 screws that hold the covers on. I do not know how this will affect the performance if at all, but I still don't think this should have happened. I will probably reinforce/fix the corners with super glue.
