The Apacer AC731 USB 3.1 Gen1 is a military-grade shockproof portable hard drive that earned recognition from 2019 Taiwan Excellence Award for its elegant design. We aren’t really accustomed to saying the words elegant and shockproof in the same line either, but this is one pretty external hard drive.

Instead of going for a military-inspired aesthetic, the Apacer AC731 features a sophisticated black casing and stylish champagne gold panels for a premium looking drive that’s tougher than it looks. As a finishing touch, rubber with a leather-like texture is used to up the ante here.

In addition to the stylish design, the Apacer AC731 has been tested to withstand 10 000x plugging and unplugging of the USB 3.0 Type-A female connector on the body of the external hard drive. It has also passed U.S. MIL-STD-810G Method 516.6 Procedure IV drop test, ensuring data safety whether the device is dropped from a table.

It sports the IP68 rating as well, which promises complete dustproofing and water resistance at 1m for up to 1 hour. There’s also a unique suspension structure protecting the hard drive inside from damage, by isolating the hard disk from external forces. The Apacer AC731 is available in 1TB and 2TB capacities for capacious storage on the go.

Local pricing and availability information is unavailable, but we will update this post when we receive them!
