Excellent price - can't believe what other places are charging!
#2
Kinda tempted but has anyone got any vouchers for 99p shipping?
#3
Design Problem:

This is a free standing unit i.e. it cannot be bolted or attached to anything else (so, not really very safe)

And if you decide to drill holes thru the case so you can bolt it somewhere, you basically b*gger up the fire protection!

Very true but then if it's more a back up against fires its not too bad but ya have a point if all ya important **** is backed up to it.

Bargain price, was tempted myself, until i remembered I have an ftp account I can backup to, which is probably a lot better as it's offsite, and perhaps why this device is so cheap? Still, if you have large volumes, or frequent, backing up to do, then I can see how a local device would have its advantages in speed.

I'll vote hot :]

Depends, I use Dreamhost, and got 4 years web hosting for £140, which also gives me ftp access and unlimited storage. They also offer a pay-once-backup-forever service too which isnt too expensive. I wouldn't recommend using it as the only backup, as their datacentre could go up in flames like any company, but could be combined with a normal local on a hard drive.

Its not a safe, its fire protection.

So you can back-up your hard drive while it's locked in the box? Good job it's fireproof then, there'll be a fire inside if it takes a while.. You might want to leave the lid open.
#11
Cheers!
Was looking for value fire protection without any sort of lock, but at this price I'll just leave it unlocked.
Voted hot (but not more than 843°)

Haven't removed a HD from my PC to measure it but from the description, this firesafe's only suited to 2.5in drives. I was quite interested in this until I noticed that.
#13
Can anyone confirm that this os only for 2.5" drives?

Going by the internal dimensions 134mm x 169mm x 127mm and the dimensions of a bare 3.5" drive 101.6 mm × 25.4 mm × 146 mm (thanks wikipedia) you might fit 5 drives. A 3.5" drive in a USB/desktop enclosure might fit, the critical question would be the length and whether the power lead was removable.

EDIT: Ah, I see now it actually has it's own USB lead, that feature is probably only for a 2.5" drive. It could physically hold 3.5" disks though.
#15
I HATE THIS SITE!! :? A day of feeling week minded and I have to go and buy something stupid like this!! :) Do I really need it? Maybe not, but for £20 it gives me some peice of mind that it won't get fried, then again, just got to remember that harddrives dont last forever!

Was looking at the alternatives such as this £22 @ Argos:

To be honest if a fire of the sort were to ever happen, you would have much more to worry about that your single usb stick being safe...

Cheaper to simply back up the contents of said stick to a service like dropbox.
#17
what a lot of the people don`t get is that this safe (according to the description) has an internal USB port. As such you can store data on a hard drive that is actively in use. Useful if you back up daily (and automatically) and change your data frequently, unless you want to get the HDD/stick out of a safe, connect it to the server/PC, and back up your data manually every time changes occur.

check the video on the vendor`s site: http://www.sentrysafe.com/products/productDetail.aspx?s=275

A 3.5" might fit in, but the point is that the USB ports (without a built in power lead) only provide power for the 2.5" drives. I am ordering one today if the delivery price is reasonable. Heat added, thanks

Gmail even !

The seller says:

Not at all sure that it's intended for a 3.5in drive, less so if it's in a caddy. Has anyone actually bought one?

If you need security, use a free encryption tool e.g. truecrypt then put your data into that file container. Tried it using dropbox and works a treat. As it stores the file locally and remotely, therefore enable updating of the file container.
#21
Just got mine today! And I'm impressed! This case is SOLID and the quality's excellent.:thumbsup:
Loads of room for stuff inside even with a 500GB WD 2.5" HDD plugged in. Good place for passports and keys etc, as the lock on the front is pretty robust.

True about uploading to the web, but if you have hundreds of files like photos that are backed up and constantly updating then its easier having it plugged in all the time.

Could be nicked? If data is that important then this may not be what you need, but i'm going with a 5m USB cable and stashing it in the cupboard.

Sorry! Just Sold Out!
