Silicon Power offers waterproof A70 external HDD

Data that you might have stored on your flash drive or external hard drive faces more threats than simply being lost. The drives are often subject to drops and water damage as we travel throughout the day. Silicon Power has unveiled a new rugged external HDD that promises to protect your data from abuse.

The drive is called the Armor A70 and it is water resistant, impact resistant, dust proof, and vibration resistant. That means the drive can survive spills or being caught in the rain and will still operate if you drop it.

The A70 connects to a PC via USB and comes in 250GB to 640GB capacities. The drive is IEC529 IPX7 compliant for water resistance and meets military standards of ruggedness. The drive promises a max transfer speed of 480Mbps and is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux machines.
