The Armor A60 portable drive can take quite a beating

Storage
[MUSIC] Hi guys, **** Ngo here, and this is the Armor 860 portable drive phone, with silicon power. Now, this one here is quite unusual, for a few reasons. Number one, it use this A2A [INAUDIBLE] cable, like this. Now, there's good news that, you don't have to worry about the excruciating task of remembering which end is which, because they're the same. But the bad news is that if you lose this cable, you're gonna be hard to find one readily available. Because most [UNKNOWN] drive on the market, use. The standard A to V cable like this one right here. Now to keep this cable from going missing it comes with this very cool groove right here to the cable to the drive. Unfortunately the groove here is not as long as the cable so the cable's actually sticking out like this. So, again, lose it pretty easily. I'll drop it like that and we lost it. The second thing of note about this drive is that you can handle drops, dust and also is water resistant. It comes with this lip right here to seal its port from the outside environment. Now note that this one here is not water proof. So if you have a habit of going for a swim with your portable drive, this not for you. But if you accidentally drop it on the street on a rainy day, you know, it be fine. No other than that, this one here is a bus powered portable drive, meaning you need only one cable for both data and power connection. It also perform very well. In my testing is every, some 105 megabytes per second for writing and some 115 megabytes per second for reading via USB 3.0. It also works with USB 2.0. Now, you know, it's a great drive for the cost of just $70 for 1 terabyte, for [INAUDIBLE]. Five dollars, or two [INAUDIBLE]. [MUSIC] In the UK it cost 63 pounds, or hundred four pounds, respectively. Now for more the drive here, check our my full review at CNET.com. Now take a look. There we go, another drop test. [INAUDIBLE] break anything? Well for the result, check out my Twitter feed, or just follow me because you want to. And that's because I'm **** Ngo and this has been the first look at the Armor A60 from Silcon Power.
