Silicon Power's rugged 5TB hard drive has dropped to $110 on Amazon

Silicon Power's Armor A60 rugged 5TB portable hard drive (opens in new tab) is down to $109.99 on Amazon. We have never shared a deal on the 5TB version of this drive before as it normally sells for around $140 and doesn't drop from that.

The 1TB drive (opens in new tab) is going for $50, so you're only paying about twice the price for five times the space. You know what that's called? Value.

The A60 works with both Windows and Mac. It's also compatible with gaming consoles like the Xbox and PlayStation. It has military-grade shock resistance and IPX4 water resistance. It's also covered by a three-year warranty. (opens in new tab)

The Armor A60 drive has military-grade shockproof and it's IPX4 rated. The shock resistance means you can drop it from a reasonable height or get it jostled around inside your backpack without worrying about breaking it. That IPX4 means it can be splashed by water from any direction and have no harmful effect.

The drive is wildly compatible with a ton of systems. For example, it's formatted to FAT32 so it will work on Mac or Windows without needing to reformat. However, if you transfer any single files larger than 4GB you should re-format to exFAT (and remember to back up the drive before you do so you don't lose anything). The drive also works with gaming consoles like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So not only could you add a few more games to play for your system, you could also take it with you without worrying about it if you're the sort of person who takes your console places.

The case of the drive is designed to hold onto the necessary cables, and it comes with a short USB-A to USB-A cable you can use. Don't worry about leaving the cables somewhere else or having no simple way to carry them, unless you decide you need to upgrade to something larger for this drive like a 6-foot USB cable (opens in new tab).

Silicon Power backs it up with a three-year warranty, and users give it 4.5 stars based on 106 reviews (opens in new tab).
