G-Technology ArmorATD is their new shock-, rain- and dustproof hard drive that seems to be able to take a pretty good beating. It comes in three sizes, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB.
G-Technology just announced their new ArmorATD portable drive, which is made for the outdoors. They call it a triple-layer shock resistance because the drive has internal shock mounts, is built into a solid aluminum enclosure, which is also wrapped with a protective rubber bumper. According to the manufacturer, it has a crush resistance of up to
450kg or 1000lbs , which is very extraordinary. Something that is actually more relevant is that it’s shockproof when dropped from an average desk (up to 1.2 meters) – the data should be fine when this happens, which certainly isn’t the case for all hard drives.
The new ArmorATD is made to be used by itself as opposed to their ev series rugged drives (see below), which makes it a tad smaller and lighter. It uses a USB-C connector which really has become the standard over the past few years, both on Windows and Mac. Click here for the full article.
