The SP Armor A15 is a portable drive for those with anger management problems

-Hi, guys. It's Dong Ngo here. And if you're saying, "Uh, it's that guy again. It's gonna be another boring product." You are right. I have another portable drive right here. But before I get to it, let me tell you one thing about portable drives. They are delicate. They need to be handled with care. But at the same time, they come in a perfect shape and weight of something that when you hold your hand and you'd get angry, you want to slam it on the floor or at somebody. With that in mind, this is the Armor A15 Portable Drive from Silicon Power. Now, this drive right here is very similar to the rest of portable drive on the market, but it come with in a protection against a drop from up to 4 feet high while traveling. And guess what? Four feet high is where I am right now. So, off it go. -Oh. Ah. -There you go, I did it. And the drive looks fine. I'm not sure about James, though. -Huh. -Now, the A15's silicon gel chassis can also protect the internal drive from vibration and dust. And that's mean it's a great device for those who works in a rough environment. But it's also a good drive for all of us, too, because in my testing, it is for now the fastest USB 3.0 drive on the market. Now, it's not perfect, though, because it's come with software, and this backup button right here that do not work as expected. But even without those, it's still a great drive. This drive here is bus-powered, and it come included with one USB cable, and that's all you need to use it on the go. And the good news is, it's quite affordable to, costing just $90 for 1 terabyte. To find our more, you can always read the full review of this drive at CNET.com. In the mean time, trust me. It'd make a great present for your angry significant other. Not for me, though. Not that I never get mad. It's just that I'm very good at anger management. And that's because I'm Dong Ngo. And this has been the first look at the Armor A15 Portable Drive from Silicon Power. -Stop throwing that at me.
