In this post we are going to review a popular rugged external harddrive. So without wasting your time lets jump right in.
The casing of the IoSafe Rugged Portable drive is built out of solid aluminum which explains why it looks and feels so solid. On the bottom of the device are the rubber feet and a note to remind you of the data recovery warranty.
The drive measures (H x W x D) 5.7 inch x 0.9 inch x 1 inch and weighs just over a pound, and 1.7 pounds for the titanium version. While the weight is definitely a turn off for people who like their drives to be light, it is impossible to expect such sturdy drives at any lighter weights.
The drive is available in 250GB to 1TB capacities in HDD and 256GB to 512GB in SSD capacities.
Comes with USB 2.0 and 3.0:
At the back of the drive is present a Mini USB 3.0 port. With the drive, a regular mini USB 3.0 and a Y shaped USB 2.0 cable. The former acts as a data cable and a power cable as well.
In case you are looking for a rugged and portable drive that protects your data, then the IoSafe Rugged Portable is the one you must buy. The drive is extremely stylish and at the same time is designed to safe guard your data from the vagaries of Mother Nature. The Data Recovery Plan is the best warranty in the market and the inclusion of USB 3.0 means higher transfer speeds.
If the drive could withstand extreme heat as well, then this could have been the daddy of disaster proof drives in the market. But if you live in a harsh environment, then this is a great way to safeguard your data. If you are an ordinary user, the drive does seem extremely expensive, but the data recovery services make the price worth it. A big thumbs up to IoSafe for such a sensational niche product; we recommend…
