Specifications, Pricing and Availability
ioSafe's Solo G3 is an evolution for the Solo product family. The new enclosure is now a fanless design and the inner heat resistant material is now vacuum bagged so you don't have to worry about the chalk like white dust when you first open the box. Not that it was much of an issue, but we do like the heat resistant material all bagged up.
ioSafe has publicly displayed its products surviving torture tests and other product reviewers have demonstrated the Solo series products surviving real-world disaster conditions. We've had this unit on our shelf for a long time and tried working with the fire department over the summer.
Sadly, most of Indiana was under a drought warning most of the year and my local fire department didn't burn any houses down for training. When they do the next controlled burn we expect a call and we'll finally get the opportunity to burn this mother down!
ioSafe's Data Recovery Service is an added level of protection. This protection plan covers your HDD even further. Should the HDD require forensic level recovery ioSafe has a couple of plans based on per month fees. The service is provided for one year after the initial purchase, but can be extended and improved upon.
ioSafe sells its products directly on its website, but we've seen them in Fry's brick and mortar stores as well as from online e-tailers. The 1TB Solo G3 we're reviewing today costs $299 on ioSafe's website. 2TB goes to $349 and 3TB to $450. The MSRP prices on ioSafe's website may be a little discouraging, but you can shop around and find better deals. Costco.com has the 3TB version right now for $299.99. That's certainly much better than $450!
Let's take a look and the Solo G3, run a few performance tests and discuss our thoughts on the product.
