iStorage is a company we were introduced to earlier this year when we had to chance to check out their diskashur2 External Hard Drive. This was more of a portable hard drive, so today we are taking a look at the diskashur DT2 which is offered in capacities all the way up to 14TB. iStorage touts this drive as the world’s first and only NCSC CPA, FIPS 140-2 Level 2/3, NLNCSA BSPA and NATO restricted level certified encrypted desktop hard drive! The drive offers AES-XTS 256-bit full disk hardware encryption and this is software-free encryption as you need to enter a PIN number on the drive to even access it. Besides being super-secure the diskashur DT2 is a USB 3.1 drive offering sequential read and write speeds of 225 MB/s and 223 MB/s respectively.
Special thanks to iStorage for providing us with the diskashur DT2 8TB External Hard Drive to review.
The diskashur DT2 comes in a nice retail box. On the front of the box there is a photo of the drive and it lets us many of the features and certifications the drive has.
On the back there is a list of features, comparability, and more in a few different languages.
Getting everything out of the box we have the diskashur DT2 drive, a power adapter, USB cable, user’s guide, and information on how to get free copies of Nero BackItUp and iStorage DriveSecurity.
