Pretty exciting stuff…
Not bad. Pity they don't sell enclosures without drives. Also it seems like it's impossible for user to replace HDD without voiding the warranty and jeopardising it's properties.
Excellent! I remember one being dropped off the roof a while back, but this was very impressive :)

Problem is, like he said, it's more of a warranty than an unbreakable drive. In most cases it will survive, in any other situations they will pay up to $2500 to get it forensically recovered.

The price will be based on the number of drives they expect to wind up being forensically recovered, and as soon as you let people start tinkering, you can't have a clue how many will be done properly and how many will have to be recovered. They could go bust very quickly if a large proportion of their customers were damaging drives to the level of data recovery.

I suppose they could sell a separate enclosure with no warranty system at all - i.e. it should save the drive, but if it doesn't, it's your own problem, but that wouldn't really inspire confidence. Also I'm not sure how easy that internal waterproof bag would be to fit at home, to ensure it's fully waterproof.
Why would you want to risk putting your own drive in the enclosure…

Remember your data does have some value.

I personally thought they were excellent - I took apart the portable drive and it's a pretty clever system inside
