Silicon Power Armor A65B 2TB USB 3.2 Gen1 Portable HDD Review

Storage/HDD by stefan @ 2023-05-16

The even more cost-effective version of the Armor series does include the same 2TB drive model as the A85B, so the performance is basically the same, but the outside shell is now made of rubberized plastic instead of aluminum and this can be also noted by the lighter drive (277g vs 298g). The Armor A65B does max out at only 2TB (unlike A85B which can go up to 5TB), but includes the same MIL-STD 810G Method 516.6 Procedure IV protection standard as its more expensive brother.

Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:


Military-Grade Shockproof Protection

Featuring advanced triple-layer protection, the Armor A65B is an expert in shock resistance. Compliant with military-grade drop test standards, two layers of rubber and a middle frame create a unibody design that makes the casing incredibly tough and durable with anti-slip and anti-scratch properties too. Meanwhile, an internal suspension system creates a vibration-dampening effect to reinforce stability.

Resist Water and Dust with IP67 Protection

Constructed with an arc-shaped and integrated frame, the Armor A65B is IP67-rated for extra outdoor protection. This means it resists dust penetration and can withstand water immersion of up to 1m depth for up to 30 minutes. With water and dust being the most common threats to a drive, the Armor A65B is sure to keep your data safe wherever adventures take you.

Nothing To Lose with This Unique Design

The Armor A65B's innovative cable storage design, with the cable tucked in and fixed on the back side of the drive, effectively reduces the size, and makes it easier to carry. It also ensures that you never misplace that loose, pesky cable again. Additionally, the drive stands out with its modern streamlined hull design, inspired by the flowing lines and curves of a luxury yacht.

Super-Speed USB 3.2 Gen 1: Edit, Transfer, Move On

With super-speed USB 3.2 Gen 1 interface, the Armor A65B delivers swift read and write speeds. This cuts the time needed to edit or transfer large files, including HD graphics and videos, to get the job done faster so you can move on to the next project.
