Data Integrity Assured - Transcend StoreJet 25MC Shock Resistant External Hard Drive

Introduction



Even though there is a larger availability of external SSDs in the market, they are still considerably more expensive than typical hard drives. SSDs are better than conventional hard drives as they are physically more reliable due to the lack of mechanical parts. This is the reason why SSDs are much more preferred over spinning drives as a portable storage device.

To combat the limitations of mechanical hard drives, Transcend has innovated and released the StoreJet 25MC shock resistant portable hard drive. It is built by placing a hard drive in a customized enclosure which absorbs all the shocks that are caused externally. This vastly improves its durability,  as the enclosure can prevent the disk inside from crashing. Moreover, Transcend has also created their own encryption and backup software to meet various use cases. Read on to find out more!



Shock Resistant

The Transcend StoreJet 25MC is an external portable hard drive that operates just like any other hard drive. What makes it special is in its design. It is surrounded with 3 layers of protection which has passed multiple rigorous military shock resistance tests to ensure its durability. (U.S. military drop-test standards MIL-STD-810G 516.6. in non-operating state.)

The Transcend StoreJet 25MC is ready for the future with its USB Type-C cable that is used for data transfer. So, do make sure that your PC has this port before you make the purchase! The good thing is, we were able to connect this hard drive to a smartphone with a USB Type-C port and access file directly without the need for any OTG dongles. 

TranscendElite Software

Create a Backup Profile with TranscendElite Software



Select the Frequency/Schedule for Backup
The Transcend StoreJet 25MC external hard drive also comes with the TranscendElite Software. This software has a suite of services that enables effective data backup, encryption and synchronization. 

The TranscendElite Backup system also allows for the creation of multiple data backup profiles. Users can simply select the folder or drive for backup, set the backup frequency (e.g. daily, monthly, etc.) and then let the software do the rest of the work. If there is a need to restore the data back to the drive, the TranscendElite software can also do so with the Restore function. To start a manual process of data backup, users can click on the "Backup Now" button on the software, or simply press the One Touch Auto-Backup button on the hard drive itself!

TranscendElite software also ensures data privacy with its data encryption and decryption feature. Users can simply key in a password for their files that they would like to put onto the drive, and their files would be well protected. The software also allows for the synchronization of data to the backup or the cloud (with services like Dropbox and Google Drive).

Hard Drive Performance


Of course, we do not expect the performance of the SSD with the Transcend StoreJet 25MC. The StoreJet 25MC is tested to have the speeds of an average 5400RPM 2.5" drive.

Tested on a Gigabyte SabrePro 15, Intel Core i7 7700HQ, 16GB DDR4 RAM, Windows 10 64bit.

Conclusion

The Transcend StoreJet 25MC has got what it takes to provide a reliable solution for data storage. Users can be assured of the integrity of their files that are stored on this drive as the unique drive enclosure does its job effectively. The StoreJet 25MC is also an extremely affordable solution, taking into account the value that it brings to consumers. 

The Transcend StoreJet 25MC is available at Lazada at a price of SGD109.
