MIL-SPEC Shock Protection

The MiniStation HD-PZFU3 model provides superior with a ruggedized case, shock-absorbing internal bumpers, and hardened chassis. This level of protection conforms to U.S. Military Standard "MIL-STD-810G 516.6 Procedure IV" (*1) used in selecting products supplied to the United States military. Robust protection shields data saved to the disk from impact if the drive is ever accidentally dropped.

* The device is dropped 26 times from a height of 1.2 meters onto plywood over a rigid solid. The drop angle is varied during testing so that the device drops on all corners and sides. The device passes the test if any one of five test samples is confirmed as operational after dropping.
* This drive is not warranted against damage to the hard disk, data, or exterior case in all operating environments. Additionally, protection does not prevent damage to the hard disk drive while it is in operation. Do not intentionally drop the drive or subject it to impact.

Designed and Made in Japan

This product is designed and built in Japan for high quality.

Safe, Rainproof/Dust-Resistant Design

The drive is not only designed for daily use, it's also rated IPX3 for rainproof performance and IP5X for protection against dust, so youcan rest assured it's protected even the weather unexpectedly turns bad.

Rugged Portable USB 3.0/2.0 Hard Drive with Encryption

Saved data can be encrypted in Security mode. Enjoy the confidence of carrying business documents and other confidential data without worries about leaked data if the drive is ever lost or stolen. The MiniStation uses 256-bit AES encryption.

* Windows RT 8.1/RT not supported.

The Integrated Flat Cable

The integrated cable stows neatly, which makes the drive easier to carry around and keeps the cable from snagging when the drive goes in or out of your bag. It's always attached, meaning no more worries about forgetting cables when out and about.
