ioSafe Builds Fireproof USB 3.0 External HDD Enclosure

Paul Lilly

We have to hand it to ioSafe for taking constructive criticism to heart. The company's latest external enclosure, the SoloPRO, now features both USB 3.0 support and eSATA , two features that were missing from the original Solo.

Like before, ioSafe promises an insane amount of protection for your data, including the ability to withstand temperatures up to 1,550F for 30 minutes, or being submerged in liquid to a depth of 10 feet for up to 3 days. More than just marketing bullets, ioSafe backs these claims with up to a $2,500 guarantee towards the cost of third-party forensic data recovery.

"Both homes and businesses need to store ever-increasing volumes of data quickly without worrying about data loss. ioSafe has always been about safely and securely storing data locally and now with its introduction of USB 3.0 and eSATA, home and businesses can accomplish that more quickly than ever before," said Jerome Wendt, Principal and Lead Analyst at DCIG.

The SoloPRO will begin shipping October 1, 2010, and is available for pre-order now for $250 (1TB), $320 (1.5TB), and $420 (2TB).
