Silicon Power is a relatively new name in the storage industry.

With an eye for attractive and versatile design, Silicon Power has built its brand around the concept that its customers deserve products that represent who they are in life and mirror their personality. The end result is a variety of uniquely designed memory modules and storage products including USB flash drives, memory cards and solid-state drives (SSD).
In addition to their flash based storage solutions, Silicon Power offers a number of portable hard drives. One of the latest additions to their product lineup is the Armor A66. Available in 1TB, 2TB, 4TB and 5TB capacities, this rugged, all-terrain USB 3.2 Gen 1 hard drive meets the U.S. military's drop-test standards. Along with a protective rubber bumper that provides 360˚ protection, the Armor A66 is equipped with an advanced suspension system that reduces impact force and increases shock-absorption. In addition, the drive offers IPX4 water-resistance that protects it against splashing from any direction. To top it all off, the Armor A66 works with Silicon Power's SP Widget backup and security software and is covered by a 3-year warranty.
