The World's Most Rugged Portable Hard Drive Can Survive A Shotgun

Iosafe CES 2011 Video: In Which I Crush Hard Drives in a Vice
 
 

Iosafe's new Rugged Portable hard drive can literally take a shotgun blast. To prove it, they brought a (working) pellet-dented unit to Storage Visions. CEO Rob Moore took another unit on a brief drive...and left it hanging from the back of his bumper. Even road-hauling couldn't crack the mighty aluminum case.

Rugged Iosafe drives start at $149 and go all the way up to $1400, for a 512 GB SSD with a titanium case. All models are USB 3.0 compliant, and the standard HDDs go up to 2 TB. Best of all, they with one of the best warrantys ever. For one year, Iosafe will recover your lost data at ALL costs, no questions asked. They brag a 99.98% success rate, so far. Also for a year, Iosafe will repair or replace any damaged models.

Again, no questions asked. It doesn't matter HOW you break your Iosafe. Not that you'll find it easy to break. I had the chance to try and crush the shotgun-scarred Rugged Portable in a heavy-duty vice. I couldn't even dent it. But the "rugged" Iomega drive? It cracked like an egg. Here's the video:

That warranty can be extended to 3 years for an extra $50, or to 5 years for an extra $100. For more info, check out their site.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
