ioSafe Rugged Portable External Hard Drive + Data Recovery Service

The ultimate portable hard drive backed by the ultimate warranty
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 and is backed by ioSafe's unique Data Recovery Service and No-Hassle Warranty. This means that if your ioSafe Rugged Portable stops working for any reason at all during the warranty period, we'll repair or replace the drive and recover the data from your old drive. ioSafe does more to protect your data than any other company.

As reviewed by New Zealand PC World Magazine:-
"In short, this is the most difficult-to-destroy gadget I’ve ever tested. If you need something that can protect your data from dust, dirt, sustained immersion, a 3m drop onto a regular floor, or 1.5m onto solid concrete, while still maintaining a great degree of portability, I’ve yet to see a comparable product."
