1. WiebeTech DriveBox Anti-Static Storage (10pcs)
A widely popular product for the anti-static storage of hard drives, the DriveBox Anti-Static Storage case from WiebeTech promises fortified protection as it is built to contain the drive firmly, packing it with its sleek design and specifications which ensure minimal space between the drive and the case. This can be important especially when traveling, as the more space inside the box, the more area it has to move around and become damaged.
Made of anti-static plastic, the exterior of the case is textured so that it is easy to grasp. Appealing to the inner neat freak in all of us, the case also contains a label area along with a label to identify and store the device properly. Available in black, the case is manufactured for vertical storage.
2. Orico 3.5-Inch Hard Drive Protective Case & Storage Box (4pcs)
As runner-up, this case by Orico fares relatively well in defending hard drives from damage. Along with being anti-static, the case also functions as water and damp proof which can, at some unfortunate times, be a life saver. Internally, the case provides protection through EVA padding; while externally, it is built with PP plastic.
The case is designed with grooves so that it can be assembled horizontally, with one case on top of the other, making storage smooth and painless. This feature also ensures that many drives can be stored together, a quality that can be beneficial if utilized properly. It is available in five different colors: blue, green, gray, orange and purple.
3. iDsonix Professional Premium Anti-Static Hard Drive Protection Box (5 pack)
The iDsonix Protection Box is made to withstand impact with an inner cushion that can protect the hard drive along with an impeccable framework inside the box that is created to absorb vibrations. As a hard drive can be a relatively small electronic object, it is useful to have a shockproof cover for it that can prevent it from being damaged inside our laptop bags (or anywhere, for that matter). The case prevents any dirt from entering on or inside itself.
It is built in five colors: blue, green, gray, orange and purple. This case can also be stored horizontally, even though one case cannot be fixed on top of the other as it can with other products.
4. iKross 3.5-Inch IDE/SATA HDD Storage Protection Boxes
The protection boxes from iKross come in three colors: orange, green and blue. They are translucent so that one may be able to look at the hard drive placed inside, which is a quality absent in all the other cases mentioned on this list. A case retains the ability to prevent foreign material from gaining access to the drive, though unlike some of the other cases, it is not built to withstand contact to moisture.
To open and close the boxes, there are latches which are coupled with hinges on the opposing side to offer ease and simplicity that make it a useful product.
