March 12, 2013
Ruggedized, Secure Portable
USB 3.0 Hard Drive

US Military-Spec ruggedness
The MiniStationTM Extreme ruggedized chassis features an ingenious arrangement of shock protection elements utilizing four different types of rubber, each designed to absorb shock to a specific area of the drive and help protect it from accidental bumps. The protections meet the standards of the U.S. Military Standard MIL-STD-810F 516.5 Procedure IV, and have passed free-fall drop tests with drops up to 2.3 meters**. With MiniStationTMExtreme, your drive stays safe and running reliably.

Blazing fast file transfer with USB 3.0 + TurboPC EX
The USB 3.0 interface moves data at rates of up to 5 Gbps*, 10X faster than USB 2.0. This vastly reduces the time needed for data transmission, making it ideal for transferring and sharing videos, large digital photo collections, music files, and other data-intensive digital content.

Strong, simple data security
This feature keeps your data safe from unauthorized access, automatically. Features robust 256-bit AES encryption-only those who have the password can decrypt and access the data. Additionally, this system suffers no loss in performance, unlike other software-based encryption systems.
