Some data is irreplaceable. Years of digital photos — weddings, vacations, birthdays — are the kind of thing that just don’t want to lose. Imagine how horrible it would be to see your hard drive explode into smithereens as it crashes into the ground, just because you accidentally bumped the corner of the table. Here’s a hard disk enclosure that can actually withstand the occasional bump and bruise and it’s even got a pretty blue LED light.
What you’ll be most interested in, however, is that the Marshal external hard drive enclosure for 2.5-inch platters can survive drops from as high as one meter, about the average height of computer desks. They kept the price down — just 15 Euros — but that also means that they kept the features on the low too: no fingerprint reader, no U3 technology. But hey, it’s light at just 60 grams (without the hard disk).
