Destroyit 0101 HDP (IDEAL) Hard Drive Destroyer Videos

Destroyit / Ideal 0101 Hard Disk DestroyerToday I was frequenting a PC blog I like to read called PC Pro out of the UK. Today they had an article about hard drive destruction and they posted a video of them destroying a 185GB IBM Deskstar hard drive. As soon as they mentioned the machine they were using I got excited. They were featuring an Destroyit (IDEAL) 0101 HDP hard disk destroyer. As you may know, I’m a huge fan of Destroyit.

To begin with, for all you computer geeks out there, the model name alone is pretty cool (0101). Speaking of binary code, my wife thinks I’m a pretty big nerd because I have a binary clock I use at home. I’ll have to discuss that one in a later article. Anyway, back to the Ideal 0101. I had not previously heard about this model, but the video is very impressive. Let me explain.

The Destroyit (Ideal) 0101 HDP hard drive destroyer uses a metal punch that exerts between 2.5 and 3 tons of force. HDP stands for hard drive punch.This punch drives through either a 2.5″ or 3.5″ hard drive, rendering them useless. According to PC Pro, that is enough force to lift a truck. Once the drive is pierced, the drive is dropped into a bin for later disposal.  The green light used in the drive slot has an otherworldly glow to it.

Here is the Video PC Pro featured in their article:

Ideal Germany has also posted their own video of the hard disk destroyer, which features a few more details.

Overall I have to say that this little machine impresses me. I can’t wait until we add this machine to our site. You can find our entire selection of Destroyit paper shredders here.
