In choosing either a hard drive destruction (HDD) device or solid state (SSD) drive destruction device, it is important to consider the following:
|TYPES OF MEDIA: Is your media magnetic (i.e. traditional laptop/computer hard disk drives), solid state (i.e. cell phones, thumb drives, memory cards and solid state hard drives), hybrid (a combination of magnetic and solid state) or optical (i.e. CD-Roms and DVDs)?|
|VOLUME OF MEDIA: How much media do you have to destroy and in what sort of timeframe? A lot of pieces, or just a few? Do you have a secure way to store it until it can properly be disposed of?|
|DIMENSIONS OF MEDIA: Hard drives (HDDs) and solid state drives (SSDs) are available in a wide variety of dimensions; smaller drives can be stacked and crushed simultaneously.|
|POWER REQUIREMENTS: A manually operated device is silent and uses no electricity; maybe you prefer the speed and ease of an automatic device?|
|MOBILITY NEEDS: Do you require a cart or padded shipping case to transport (or deploy) the degausser to the media?|
