The Powerful MediaVise Multi-Purpose Hard Disk Drive Crusher is a desktop sanitation solution that crushes, mangles, renders unreadable, and destroys hard disk drives to ensure the information contained is no longer accessible. The MediaVise also destroys and renders unusable or unreadable by normal means, other miniaturized electronic devices and data storage media including SSDs, USBs, PDAs, cell/smart phones and circuit boards. (SSD will be inoperable but not up to NSA standards)

Computer hard disk drives, solid state drives, cell phones, flash drives, LTO and DLT tape cartridges, and other storage media which hold an inordinate and increasing amount of sensitive and personal information continue to spell financial devastation for individuals, companies, financial institutions, government organizations, military installations, and credit card processors. The MediaVise HDD Crusher destroys all 2.5 and 3.5 hard drives regardless of their size, format or type, including desktop and laptop drives (Maximum Feed Opening is 4" x 1.25" x 5.75"). It easily destroys cell phones, PDAs, Pagers, LTO tape, DLT tape, and machine electronics with confidential information self-contained (think social networking).

At the touch of a button, the MediaVise patented* crushing plates deliver a staggering 40,000 pounds of force per square inch to the vulnerable platters, PC boards, and read heads of the drive to completely destroy the internal platter and all the electronics. The entire process is completely automatic and meets government specifications for Data Destruction. The unit is quiet, smooth and virtually vibration free--best of all, it plugs into a normal wall socket for office use.

The powerful MediaVise HDD Crusher automatically crushes, bends, breaks and mangles the hard drive - including the data platters upon which data is stored and the heads which record the information. Complete physical drive destruction prevents the drive from being able to "spin" up, thus the data cannot be retrieved. Once the Hard Drive is completely destroyed by the MediaVise, the data will no longer be retrievable.

The destruction process completely changes the hard disk drive physically in only 30 seconds. Drives that have been physically destroyed are easy to separate out for disposal. The powerful 40,000 psi MediaVise physically breaks the hard disk into pieces--unlike other destroyers which only bend the platter. You can be certain that no readable drives will be accidentally released from the premesis.

The patented* MediaVise HDD Crusher is the most operator friendly destroyer available (Please review the video above for operations of the machine). The operator only needs to drop the drive into the feed slot, and the machine automatically inserts the drive into the crushing mechanism. When the drive has been completely destroyed, it drops into the crushed receptacle for disposal. When this "catch basket" is full, the operator is notified to empty it. There is no requirement for adapters or space adjusters--just drop the drive into the machine. Everything else is completely automatic.
