Highly recommended, would buy another in a heart beat.

Apparently the drive itself is hermetically sealed which is good because fireproofing material is known to contain moisture.

Solos have survived car fires, data center floods and the like.

The first thing you notice about the SoloPRO is that it's big and heavy. The SoloPRO encases a 1, 1.5 or 2TB SATA drive inside of 15lbs of ceramic and steel that is 5" wide, 7.1" high and 11" long. That enclosure gives you storage that is crush resistant, able to survive temperatures of up to 1550 degrees for 30 minutes, and waterproof for 72 hours at 10 feet under.

ioSafe sent us the eSATA version of the SoloPRO which starts with a relatively Spartan exterior. Aside from some blue LEDs and strategically placed vents in the steel case, the unit is all business. The back of the SoloPRO has a small cooling fan above a single panel that houses the 12 volt power plug, a USB 2.0 connector, the power switch and an eSATA port.

Using the unit is as simple as plugging in power and connecting it to your computer via eSATA or USB. Our tests showed that the USB port topped out at 27.59MB/s while eSATA was able to hit 63.12 MB/s, more than twice the performance of the previous Solo. These numbers say two things: First, you're definitely going to want to use eSATA or USB 3.0 as your link. Second, the SoloPRO is now fast enough to use as a primary work drive.

Performance is nice, but the SoloPRO is first and foremost built to be a disaster proof. In this respect, the SoloPRO uses the same technologies pioneered by the Solo, starting with the outer shell. The two interlocking pieces resist crushing, puncture, slashing and shearing damage to the internal components.

Inside the shell you'll find ioSafe's proprietary DataCast endothermic protection: a porous ceramic that traps water within an emulsion that ablates during high temperature events.

This is the first review on Amazon that I've given even though I've bought many things from Amazon in the past (that shows how impressed I am with the ioGear SoloPRO). My first impression taking it out of the box was "Wow...very well built. No plastic here!" (every other external drive I have has a plastic shell). I plugged it in, connected the USB cable from the drive to my PC, turned it on, and transfered files. It was extremely straight forward, worked flawlessly (and fast), and is very user friendly (no configuration required).

This is the best external drive I've owned and I'm glad I researched and subsequently purchased this drive. I whole heartedly recommend this product and ioGear!

** 6 month update: Still working flawlessly. LOVE this thing! It is quickly becoming my favorite purchase from Amazon.

My family owns a network of 5 animal hospitals that all operate from a central server. I have been backing up this machine remotely for the past two years but upon recently considering the value of our client and inventory data (and what would happen if we were to lose it), I decided it was time to add some serious redundancy to our system. Enter the ioSafe SoloPRO.

The safe is quite large and reassuringly sturdy. It features two holes on the back that allow it either to be tethered to a desk or bolted to the floor! This way, if you computer is stolen your ioSafe is likely to be left behind. I was surprised to see that it was both submersible and featured a cooling fan on the back. Apparently the drive itself is hermetically sealed which is good because fireproofing material is known to contain moisture. Of course, it is also fireproof, and rated to withstand 1500 degrees for 30 minutes.

The only negative I can think of would be that the included cable might be a little short if you are running it from the top of your desk to a location on the floor. It was the perfect link to connect to our server, however.

If remote backup is impractical or unappealing to your OR if you simply want a little more redundancy, get this drive. I only found one other fireproof drive on amazon and it didn't exactly inspire confidence. Thanks to this drive, my paranoia about our data has been significantly quelled :)

Product is exactly what was advertised. I hope I never have to use the backup service. One recommendation to ioSafe: add a handle to the top of the unit; this will reduce the risk of dropping when carrying.
