5 out of 5 eggsEasy Setup, Excellent Backup Device

This review is from: ioSafe SOLO G3 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive with Fireproof / Waterproof, 1 year DATA Recovery SVC SK2TB

Pros: Solidly built and easy to use. No issues setting up or running backups to it. Comes with a USB 3 cable. This replaced an older ioSafe 1TB device that had been working for 4 years with no issue.

Cons: It is heavy but that comes with the nature of the device.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Product for Personal Backup!!

This review is from: ioSafe SOLO G3 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive with Fireproof / Waterproof, 1 year DATA Recovery SVC SK2TB

Pros: The quality of the product is very sturdy and strong. The product is heavy and built solid.
Good transfer speeds and runs silent.
Comes with good options such as Data Recovery Service in case of any issues with the drive (1 year included). There is an option to extend the service up to 5 years based on how big the drive is which is not much.
FireProof and Waterproof. Have not tested this function out yet since I do not want a fire nor do I feel like dumping this thing in water. =P

Cons: There was only 1 issue here that I would suggest to iOSafe is to provide an encryption software to have the ability to lock the drive with a password. I am sure that this will be done on future devices.

Other Thoughts: Definitely would recommend to others especially with people who back items up to a USB stick. This is great for storing valuable pictures and videos that can not be replaced or even documents.

2 out of 5 eggsUnsure

This review is from: ioSafe SOLO G3 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive with Fireproof / Waterproof, 1 year DATA Recovery SVC SK2TB

Pros: Everything stated in the sales pitch.

Cons: Questionable life span.

Other Thoughts: I've had 3 of these over the past two years. One has been great for the past two years (working as designed), one was DOA, and one has died after a couple months of use.

I will purchase another in the future because as far as I know this is one of the few fireproof and waterproof external hard drives available. I want the security.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good.

This review is from: ioSafe SOLO G3 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive with Fireproof / Waterproof, 1 year DATA Recovery SVC SK2TB

Pros: Durability, ease of use, design, and affordable.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: This product is a solid design. I could not believe how durable it felt when it arrived. It was very easy to set up, and it was very affordable. The only thing some others may want is network connectivity, but if you don't need it - this product is perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Setup

This review is from: ioSafe SOLO G3 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive with Fireproof / Waterproof, 1 year DATA Recovery SVC SK2TB

Pros: We are using this as a third backup to a Synology NAS running in RAID. Installation was plug and play, and it has worked flawlessly for a backup destination. If someone is looking for the security of an external backup that can handle some natural disaster this is the product for you. As a SMB that doesn't require a ton of storage this is a good solution for our needs. It comes with a decent length USB cable giving you flexibility in where you locate the device. And the enclosure has the added feature of a mounting hole.

Cons: I only wish this had network capability at this price point.

5 out of 5 eggsLove ioSafe!

This review is from: ioSafe SOLO G3 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive with Fireproof / Waterproof, 1 year DATA Recovery SVC SK2TB

Pros: I run an IT company that supports several clients of various industries and we use these backup drives all the time for our customers. We've installed probably over 15 of these devices, both the G2 and G3 models. Whether we're using them as workstation backups, NAS backups, or even Windows Server backup destinations, they work great!! I would highly recommend these to anyone that doesn't want to fool with the hassle of offsite backups. I'm not a fan of offsite backups, and these provide the peace of mind that those costly offsite backups offer, and all of your data is stored locally so there are no worries of data integrity. Great product! A+++

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Also includes a 1-year data recovery service in the price. Once you register the product, they offer a 1-year recovery service where you can send in the drive to the manufacturer and they will extract the platters and retrieve your data. Included with purchase!! Can't beat that!
