For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with ioSafe to give away one of their Solo G3 fireproof, waterproof external hard drives. The ioSafe Solo G3 is a rugged, heavy external hard drive that's made to hold up against disaster and look nice on a desk.

The Solo G3 is not a small hard drive, measuring in at 7.1 x 5 x 11 inches and weighing 15 pounds, but that's because of all of the equipment inside, which will keep a hard drive intact in the event of a house fire to save precious documents, photos, and more, making it an ideal in-home backup solution.

It will protect data from loss for up to a half hour in a fire that's up to 1550 degrees Fahrenheit. It's also waterproof at up to 10 feet for 72 hours, so it's going to stay safe in wet conditions, too. All of ioSafe's hard drives ship with a year of data recovery service - if there's a fire or other damage to the Solo G3, ship the hard drive back to ioSafe and they'll pay to recover your data.

This isn't the first time we've partnered with ioSafe. Earlier this year, they invited MacRumors to Seattle where we set one of the ioSafe Solo G3 hard drives on fire and then doused it in water. In the video below, you can see the hard drive inside the enclosure came out fully unscathed and kept our data safe. A non fireproof hard drive we burned alongside the Solo G3 was charred to a crisp.

The ioSafe Solo G3 comes in several capacities and can be purchased directly from ioSafe, from the Apple Online Store, or from Amazon.com. ioSafe also sells a variety of other fireproof products for homes and businesses.

One lucky MacRumors reader will win a 2TB Solo G3 from ioSafe. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize.

You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page. Due to the complexities of international laws regarding giveaways, only U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older are eligible to enter.

The contest will run from today (November 6) at 12:15 p.m. Pacific Time through 12:15 p.m. Pacific Time on November 13. The winner will be chosen randomly on November 13 and will be contacted by email. The winner has 48 hours to respond and provide a shipping address before a new winner is chosen. The prize will be shipped to the winner for free.

Anyone have any idea of the MSRP for one of these things?
If you follow the link in the main article, you can see the 2TB model featured here is $349 before shipping and sales tax etc, with larger capacities for extra money.
