Silicon Power Diamond D05 Limited Edition 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive

NikkTech
15 February 2014
  • Conclusion: When we first sliced open the Diamond D05 Limited Edition i was somewhat surprised to see that Silicon Power had used an 5400RPM SATA II HDD instead of an 7200RPM SATA III one mainly because USB 3.0 connectivity can handle pretty much anything you throw at it. Now i can understand that SATA II and SATA III mechanical drives have almost zero difference in speed but 5400RPM and 7200RPM do have some so i don't know why Silicon Power didn't opt for one of those instead.
  • Pros: - Build Quality (Scratch Resistant Enclosure - Toshiba HDD), - Design (Reindeer Drawing), - Very Fast, - SP Widget (Free Download From Silicon Power)
  • Cons: - Price (For Some)

CDRLabs
20 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Final Thoughts: The Diamond D05 is a great choice for the young professional or anyone else looking for a portable hard drive that is both stylish and speedy. Despite being small enough to fit in your pocket, Silicon's new drive is solidly constructed and is protected on top by a scratch-resistant, metallic grain surface. For a portable drive, the Diamond D05 also packs some impressive performance.

Silicon Power Diamond D05 750GB USB 3.0

techPowerUp!
6 December 2011
  • Summary: A lot of manufacturers are utilizing the new USB 3.0 interface to bring out new hard drive enclosures. Naturally, Silicon Power is one of these companies. The Stream S10 managed to turn heads with its looks, performance and price, the Diamond D05 is mostly going for the esthetic factor. While the drive performs alright, it does not manage to shine anywhere. Additionally, the unit does not offer a pouch or bag, like the S10 or many other enclosures in the market.
  • Pros: Stylish Aluminum plating, Available in grey (D05), blue or pink (D10), Noticeable performance boost from USB 3.0, Slim design, Good USB 3.0 performance, Average USB 2.0 read performance, 3 years warranty
  • Cons: No extras - just cable & manual, "Diamond" is the Aluminum plate, the rest is a normal plastic housing, Not quite as fast as other USB 3.0 enclosures - probably due to hard drive used, Slow USB 2.0 write performance, No frills drive, Availability

Silicon Power Diamond D05 USB 3.0 External Drive

25 November 2011
  • Conclusion: The Silicon Power Diamond D05 is not the slimmest portable drive but it is still slim enough to fit into your pocket. The overall construction feels quite solid and durable. We absolutely love the brushed metal front and very non-intrusive blue LED activity light. The plastic body casing is not our favorite but it feels like good quality plastic that will not break easily.

Silicon Power Armor A80 & Diamond D05

24 November 2012
  • Summary: La diffusione di formati multimediali di qualità sempre crescente costituisce, senza ombra di dubbio, una preziosa risorsa per tutti coloro che amano l'alta definizione, sia in campo audio/video che in quello fotografico. L'elevata qualità di questi formati, però, ha un costo in termini di spazio necessario all'archiviazione non indifferente, tanto che i supporti ottici, che un tempo permettevano di stoccare un considerevole quantitativo di dati multimediali, sono stati...

Портативные внешние винчестеры Silicon Power Diamond D05 и Stream S20 750 ГБ:

iXBT.com
12 July 2012
  • Summary: В нашей Конференции нередко можно в списке претензий к «готовым» внешним винчестерам увидеть и такую: заранее неизвестно, что́ там внутри и как оно работает. Как видим, точные знания о том, «что́ там внутри», в ряде случаев все равно не помогают — винчестеры с одинаковым названием (и прошивкой), мост USB—SATA тот же самый, а результаты разные.

Silicon Power Diamond D05 750 GB

DeXgo
13 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Auch mit dem Diamond D05 bietet Silicon Power ein gutes externes Laufwerk an, welches sich vom kürzlich vorgestellten an einigen Stellen aber deutlich unterscheidet. So fällt bereits der Lieferumfang kleiner aus, in welchem wir eine Schutzhülle für das Gehäuse vermissen. Von der Verarbeitung her kann dem Diamond D05 nichts Negatives nachgesagt werden und das gesamte Gehäuse wirkt sehr edel. Gerade die Aluminium-Front trägt hierzu maßgeblich teil.
  • Pros: gute Verarbeitung, kein zusätzlicher Stromanschluss notwendig, sehr gute Performance über USB3.0...
  • Cons: ...welche allerdings bei kleineren Dateien hinter der von eSATA-Laufwerken liegt, Performance im USB2.0-Betrieb meist unter Durchschnitt
