How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The ioSafe Solo G3 is expensive, heavy and slow. But it's also fireproof up to 1,550° , waterproof up to 10 feet for 72 hours, and can be bolted to the floor to make it more theft-resistant. ioSafe also offers a range of data-recovery plans, some of which extend the drive's warranty for up to 5 years. While it doesn't support RAID, which could limit its ability to recover from failure, if you need to keep critical data on-site, and want to protect it from the elements, the Solo G3 should keep you covered.
