Default Extreme harddrive enclosure

Any of you firefighters or deep sea explorer may be interested in this
ioSafe Solo ~ flaming HDs at CES (NOTCOT)

ps. I commented on the blog stating how no matter how well the drive is protected externally it could always be a dud hdd so they should use a flash drive instead.

lol your probably right. the hard drive inside would die of its own accord... SSD time?

agreed, if ur going to worry about safe keeping that much why wouldnt they just put a ssd in there, heck the thing prolly isnt shock proof at all, they didnt have any shock tests. drop it and all you have now is a expensive enclosure that clicks.

For one wouldn't you be asking for your place to burn down putting your hdd in something like that? lol not to mention SSD is the way to go for protection, just seems kinda useless money to me
