iosafe ioSafe Rugged Portable is the Toughest Mac Friendly USB 3.0 Drive Ever Built

Don’t let the name fool you, the new ioSafe Rugged Portable USB 3.0 hard drive is really slick for a “rugged” drive. As a matter of fact, it looks good enough to compliment your aluminum Mac to a T. In particular the drive is covered in a crush-resistant Mac Mini’esque full metal jacket that can withstand up-to 5000 lbs (Ti) and 2500 lbs (Al), yet the drive itself weighs under a pound. The drive is also able to withstand floods, and full submersion in water up-to 10′ in depth and that includes up-to 72hours in fresh or salt water. On top of all of that, it’s also “theft resistant” courtesy of a built-in Kensington security slot or you can bolt it down with an anti-theft tab, and  it can also withstand continuous exposure to UV, blowing sand, blowing dust, rain, salt, fog, freezing rain, diesel fuel, oils, and more. Under the hood you get a drive that is Time Machine compatible. But despite its good looks, this drive comes with what you’d expect from an ioSafe drive – including a no-strings warranty and ioSafe’s Data Recovery Service. Data Recovery Services includes 1 year of one-time data recovery if needed for any reason and up to $5000 for third party forensic recovery if required.  Pricing for the ioSafe Rugged Portable USB 3.0 hard drive will retail from $149.99 for the 5400RPM 250GB version, to up-to $3,899.99 for the 512GB SSD version with 5 Year Data Recovery Service. And of-course there are many different configurations available in between.
