If I was ever in a position to give an award for company ethics or post sale support, or follow through, ioSafe would get a big shiny star. I've heard from their customers in the past about how ioSafe has treated them and I've read reports online about how the product has worked. I'm not talking about people tossing the Solo and SoloPRO in a pool, but real life stories about basement floods, house fires and really bad days that turn into nightmares. For me, a nightmare would be my wife holding it over my head that all of our digital family pictures were lost, but some of these people lost everything, everything except for what was on the ioSafe device.
This is the third Solo / SoloPRO I've looked at and I really can't stress enough how much I like this product. My dad taught me that shit happens and to plan for the best, but prepare for the worst. The modern day version of that is keep your data on a portable flash drive for easy access, but back it up on a ioSafe Solo / SoloPRO for when things get out of control.
My dad also taught me that when something is too good to believe, it usually isn't, but ioSafe wasn't around when he was giving lessons. The SoloPRO with up to 5,000 Dollars in DRS coverage is pretty unbelievable, but the stories I've read about and had emailed to me are true. ioSafe is the real deal and their products are everything you'd want them to be.
Then there is the cost. When comparing the SoloPRO to an off the shelf, everyday external USB 3.0 enclosure, the SoloPRO does look a bit expensive, but you are not buying an off the shelf everyday external USB 3.0 enclosure. You are buying real long term protection. Prices start out at 250 USD and increase as the option list grows.
