Summary: I bought this to provide a dedicated backup for my Windows Server. Cloud storage cost more than I wanted to pay and the machine sits inaccessibly in the laundry room so rotating disks between onsite and offsite wasn't really going to work. ioSafe offered a good compromise: a backup with a reasonable chance of surviving a fire at a reasonable price.
Pros: great price for 3tb fireproof external storage. excellent tech support.
Summary: Received the product 2/25/14...very easy to setup...software very user friendly...extended warranty for replacement and data extraction was very reasonable and added peace of mind, considering the fire and water protection offered for this product.
Summary: I got this last year and wanted to wait until I had used this for at least 6 months. When I first started using this with a Mac, I was having some issues with it not being recognized even though it was on and hooked up, so I contacted them. They emailed me back, but kid you not once that email arrived and before I could reply to it, I didn't have another issue. Funny how that works, but it may also have to do with the fact that I updated my software around the same time.
Pros: quiet recent backup is available whenever i check when backing up does not slow down my process
Summary: This drive is built pretty sturdy - perhaps the most reliable fire / water protective case on the market currently ( in this price range). It works quietly and has a bolt down option (anti-theft feature) that I really like. Will be using it as home network back up drive / time machine storage.
Summary: with so much of our life in our computer, I have worried about back up. I purchased this and had my son install it before going back to college. it was working well while he was here, but something changed that it was no longer backing up. I received a very quick response from customer service, and he was able to log into my computer and solve this for me.
Summary: Works great, won't bore you with technical stuff. After 2years it died, I think it was me, maybe? But it was still under warranty. Only took the standard data recovery. But I used the iosafe 123's of data back up. Good rule to follow. The part that was needed wasn't in stock and hadn't come in within 5 days. So customer support sent me the 2tb USB3.0 (upgrade).
Pros: don't hesitate buy it.
Cons: gor longer cord from mono price no speed loss
Summary: Simple to use, simple to set up! A no brainer at this price!! Customer Service is good to work with when you have a problem but if you need to exchange it, you are better off to return it to Costco and order another one. That would be much faster. Not 5 stars since i've had to exchange 2 due to shipping damage.
Summary: Best way to protect data is to back it up, but protection for the back up drive seems very wise and this hard drive does just that. Set up was easy on a MacBook and back up has been flawless so far.
Summary: I was waiting for reliable backup for sometime. My prior Seagate system failed and I was not happy with the same. This offer from Costco looked good. I just finished the installation and it was quite simple. It seem to work to my expectations for now and hope this gives the stated benefits over time whic i have to wait & see. The online purchase i made was received in 4 days and in good condition.
