Storage/HDD by stefan @ 2013-03-18

The new Armor A15 USB 3.0 Portable HDD from Silicon Power was designed to withstand shocks, vibrations in a better way than the majority of products from the same category. The case comes with a shock absorbent silica gel cover modeled in such a shape to increase the grip so we won’t drop it on the floor easily by mistake. A15 not available only at 1TB, but it can be also found at 750GB and 500GB capacities, at different price points.
