iStorage Datashur Pro+ C 32gb 5

Our previous reviews for data storage devices from the iStorage Datashur series have all been about the larger packs. When I say larger, it’s all relative of course – most of them fit easily in to your pocket and are perfectly portable. This one is the first I’ve reviewed that is small enough to fit on your key chain!

The Pro+ C comes with all the bells and whistles you would expect from iStorage – Its buttons are wear-proof, the shell can withstand being dropped up to 4 metres on to concrete and it can even avoid being crushed by up to 2.7 tons-worth of vehicle. As if that wasn’t enough, the internal components are coated in a tough epoxy-resin so even if someone does get inside it, they’re not going to get the essential components out with damaging them. Its IP68 rated water and dust resistance is pending (can last 30 minutes in water up to a depth of 1.5 metres and won’t let dust or dirt get in to it) but, knowing who this is coming from, I can’t see that not being awarded! It’s also waiting for a FIPS 140-3 standard rating (Anything using cryptography where US Government contracts are involved must have this as a minimum) and so far, it’s the only flash drive with this pending. You really can’t get much more security than that in a domestic setting!

I like the compactness of this storage device and the reassuringly rugged feel of it. I particularly like the addition of the Type-C to Type-A adaptor allowing you to access devices without a Type-C portal, a great idea and truly makes this storage device accessible on whatever device you need to use. Combined with the 8-15 digit PIN, this really is a safe and ubiquitous device for those that need to keep their data handy and secure. RRP £99
