Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 CD Destroyer Review

Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 CD DestroyerDestroying unused information seems like a no-brainer. You certainly don’t want sensitive information falling into the wrong hands. One thing a lot of people don’t think of is that compact disks (CDs) also need to be destroyed. In fact, one CD can hold thousands of pages of data. One good way to destroy this data is by using a CD destroyer like the Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 (found here). This is my review.

The Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 is a CD destroyer, sometimes referred to as a CD grinder. The science behind the machine is sound. You insert the disk into the machine and it grinds the disk down, destroying the data and making it completely unreadable. The machine is automatic. Put in a disk and the machine does the rest. It can destroy CDs, CD-Rs and CD-RWs.

The Infostroyer is NSA approved (NSA/CSS 04-02). This means it can be used by the government and military for the destruction sensitive and top-secret data. The entire CD grinding process takes about four seconds, which is really fast. This is fast.

The Infostroyer 101 is designed to be portable. It only weighs in at 19 pounds and is available with an optional carrying case with wheels and telescoping handle. This makes the Infostroyer 101 deployable.

Are you feeling patriotic or are you required to buy American? We have you covered. Our entire line of Applied Magnetics shredders, disintegrators and grinders are made in the USA. The quality is unsurpassed.

One downside to the Infostroyer 101 is that it cannot be used to destroy DVDs. It is designed for CDs only. If you are destroying DVDs, you will need to upgrade to the Infostroyer 201 found here.

Overall I am very impressed with the Infostroyer 101 and consider it to be one of the fastest and most efficient ways to destroy CDs. You can find the Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 here. You can find our entire selection of CD shredders and destroyers here.
