  • newegg Fireproof - Protects data from loss up to 1550°F for 1/2 hour DataCast endothermic fire insulation technology protects your data from extreme heat. The DataCast formulation forms a chemical bond with water molecules that, at temperatures above 160°F, releases water vapor to limit the internal temperature of the unit during a fire.
  • newegg Active Airflow Cooling - For optimum operating temperature FloSafe active airflow cooling technology provides cooling airflow through the enclosure and across the disk drives during normal operating conditions. If destructive heat levels are sensed, such as in a fire, the FloSafe vents limit and protect your data from the extreme heat.
  • newegg Waterproof - Protects data from loss up to 10ft for 72 hours HydroSafe water barrier technology is designed to protect data loss from fresh or salt water damage, including full immersion. While keeping your data dry, the HydroSafe technology still allows heat to dissipate during normal operation.
  • newegg Theftproof - Bolt down to any surface The built in anti-theft tab allows you to easily secure the ioSafe Solo to any surface and keeps your data protected in the event of a break in. Securing the drive also prevents the drive from moving during a disaster.
  • newegg Data Recovery Service – 1, 3, or 5 year plans available The ultimate safety net for the ultimate hard drive, the ioSafe Data Recovery Service (DRS) provides a one time use, no questions asked data and hardware recovery service. For any loss, no matter the reason.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple, solid -- beats online backup

Pros: Super-simple to set up. It's an external USB hard drive! Works fine with Windows Server 2003 R2 32 bit. And it really does look like it would survive a natural disaster.

I actually like that it doesn't come with backup software -- I would prefer to choose my own.

Cons: Haven't come across any negatives yet.

Other Thoughts: Works perfectly as a Symantec BackupExec Backup to Disk folder. We then duplicate to tape.

MUCH less expensive than online backup (we were paying $200/month). For "normal" disasters (hardware failure, accidental deletions of large files), the restore is loads faster than pulling data down with our T1 (ugh).

For catastrophic disasters (fire, flood, CES demos :)), we should still be as safe as with an online solution, especially with an upgraded Disaster Recovery Service to 3+ years.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat peace of mind!

Pros: This unit seems to be built like a tank! It's fairly heavy so it won't accidentally get knocked off the desk. The fire and flood ratings are incredible. It's fast, built with a Seagate drive, not some cheap knock-off, and is simple; plug and play. Once I plugged it in to power and usb, I backed up my computer to it and am transferring important files to it every time I need to.

Cons: I would like to see an automatic backup utility bundled with this drive.

Other Thoughts: For the cost of this drive compared to a standard drive, it's worth the peace of mind. I bought this after my other external drive's head crashed. Now I have to pay for the data recovery (upwards of $2500!) whereas that service is part of the warranty for the ioSafe. I don't think I'll purchase any other drive than an ioSafe from now on!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome protection for not a lot of money

Pros: It is safe and it is a great alternative for Offsite Backup. There is no excuse for not using one of these to protect your family pictures, work or any other important documentation.

Cons: USB and not ESATA

Other Thoughts: Awesome product
