PQI H560 Shock Proof Portable Hard Drive

By Andrew Liszewski

What’s the point of having an external drive for backing up your files if it’s prone to data loss after a tiny fall off your desk or a tumble down a flight of stairs? The PQI H560 is another shock proof hard drive in a long line of rugged data storage solutions designed to protect your files no matter how clumsy you are. Available in 320, 500 and 640GB capacities, the drive features a special rubber material used for the housing as well as shock-absorption suspension technology on the inside allowing it to pass the U.S. Military’s MIL-STD-810F 516.5 procedure IV transit drop test. It’s also got a built in USB cable, a SATA interface if you prefer to connect that way, and a dedicated one-touch backup button.

    What are these external hard drives good for anyway? You can't store data on them! What? You can st….That's what they are……Nevermind.

    Everything should be shockproof around me, I am way too clumsy for electronics.

    I'm a bit sad that this wasn't thought of sooner. Why wouldn't we try to protect things like this. I think I need to replace my drives.

    I have a portable hard drive, and while it comes in a plastic case, I don't think it is shock proof. I would like this better if it came as just the case and I could attach it to the hard drive that I already have.
