Top Quality, All-Around Protection
The delicate parts inside a portable hard drive require strong protection. Compliant with the MIL-STD-810G 516.6 Procedure IV (transit drop test), the Armor A65 consists of two layers of rubber and a middle frame to create a unibody design which makes the casing very resistant and durable. The internal suspension system provides a vibration damping function to reinforce overall stability; the outer rubber cover not only creates a shockproof shell but makes the surface anti-slip and anti-scratch. Featuring advanced 3-layer protection, the rugged Armor A65 is an expert in shock resistance. “The Armor series has been well- received in the market, but we still keep improving to bring innovations to users, “said a SP Industrial Designer. “We tried to make the Armor A65 more out of the ordinary, in either its function or appearance. It is the first portable hard drive in the industry that applies the unibody cup-like design and passes the IP67 dustproof/waterproof standards. Thus, we’re confident that the Armor A65 can withstand any demanding conditions.” SP always takes every detail into consideration; for water and dust are the most common threats to portable hard drives, we especially designed the Armor A65 to remove a lot the threats and set a new standard for data safety.
A Palm-sized Vault with Onboard Cable storage
The delicate cable storage design, with the cable tucked in and fixed on the back side of the Armor A65, effectively reduces the size and makes it easier to carry. You can feel the elegance and convenience it brings you – whether it is put inside a bag or held in your hands. Moreover, the Armor A65 stands out with its modern streamlined hull design inspired by the flowing lines and curves of a luxury yacht, adding an exception a touch. Data security is always an important issue as it relates to your personal or business information. Therefore, SP provides the “SP HDD Lock Utility Software”－an encryption software created specifically for the Armor A65 to ensure high data protection. A password is required to access your data. The protection does not go away; whatever you keep in the hard drive stays in the hard drive. Furthermore, the Armor A65 is equipped with an intelligent built-in LED indicator to let you know the operating status. To meet different storage needs, the Armor A65 is available in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacity options, which offer large storage space for hundreds of audio files, classic movies, photos and important research data.
