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!

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: Price, service, ease of use.

Cons: Heavy (But that's OK.)

Other Thoughts: I work in a mining environment where dust, vibration, and other environmental conditions affect all things. This external drive is a beast and just keeps working.

4 out of 5 eggsReally great product

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: Absolutely love this product. It was super easy to set up and maintain. I have had backups saving here for about 6 months now and have had to restore some of them - no issues at all. The sturdy design and fireproof/waterproof design makes me feel even more secure about trusting (my life of data) on this product. Highly recommend!

Cons: Havent found any yet

Other Thoughts: Great backup solution at an affordable price. It offers fast read and write speeds and haven't noticed any latency issues. I haven't had to contact customer service for any reason, but this is a good thing!

4 out of 5 eggsDoes exactly what we need

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: Fireproof, waterproof, plug and play, no special drivers, works just like any other external drive. Read write speed just as fast as a desktop sized external drive. Sturdy construction, heavy, and professional looking. Packaging was easy and sensible, didn't have a ridiculous amount of funky cardboard pieces.

Cons: Doesn't make waffles.

Other Thoughts: Registered the product on IOSafe's website with no issues to activate the 1year data recovery plan.

Arrived in perfect condition, boxing and packaging did it's job to protect the unit.

Have not yet had to contact customer support, but from the smoothness of registering the product on their website, I imagine their support would be just as good.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Drive

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: Awesome design with a place to screw it down or lock it to something. We are using is as our second backup location because we don't want to store our data on the cloud or in another building. We feel safe with the Durability of this device. Doesn't feel cheap at all, nice weight.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Definitely recommend as an alternative to cloud backups
