Good, bad and bottom line - CNET Reviews


The good-looking IoSafe Rugged Portable hard drive is designed to safeguard your mobile data against extreme conditions and includes a data recovery plan that covers up to $5,000 worth of damage. The drive supports USB 3.0 and comes with all necessary cables.


The Rugged Portable is rather expensive, doesn't protect data against extreme heat, and requires a separate cable to work with USB 2.0. Its performance, though fast, could be better.

Bottom Line

Relatively compact and ultrarugged, the IoSafe Rugged Portable could be a great investment for someone who's constantly on the go or works in a challenging environment such as a ship, an oil rig, construction sites, or even war zones. For others, it would probably be overkill.
