Data has become increasingly mobile, but with that increased mobility comes increased risk. Delicate portable storage devices can easily be dropped during travel, stolen or exposed to adverse environmental conditions such as extreme temperatures, sand or moisture - all factors which can lead to data loss. The ioSafe Rugged Portable addresses each of these problems. It's tough enough to be used in arctic or desert environments, is shock and crush resistant, has anti-theft features.

Great rugged drive!!!
Reviewed by Derek Rennie. Review Posted 29/07/2012
The point of rugged drives are that they need to be able to take all the abuse that's thrown at them. The ioSafe feels very strong and looks great.
I needed to buy an alternative to the Lacie rugged drives, we have 6 but each one has had at least one port fail.
There are plenty of cheap portable drives out there, but if you are looking for a 'rugged' version you can trust then this must be at the top of the list.
It costs more than other drives, but if you buy one you will understand why. It's a top quality product and I will be ordering more of these.
- Ease of use
- Value for money
