    From the moment you have the CalDigit Tuff in your hands, you can tell it’s strong – and with it being IP57 certified, you should have no issues with dirt, dust or water. As a matter of fact, I have a few ideas spinning around in my head as I write this on how I can test the durability of the drive. Many of these ideas go well beyond what a typical user would do to a drive like this through its lifetime, but if I can get everything cleared up, I may be shooting some video soon or perhaps do it live via Facebook.

    Performance, as I briefly mentioned above, is the best I have seen for a 2.5-inch external HDD in the four years I have been writing for TweakTown. I reached a stable 141 MB/s read and write in testing and while I didn’t make up a chart for it, this drive tested at 134 MB/read and 128 MB/s write on OS X 10.11.5 as well. Overall, the Tuff is the perfect drive for holding backups or even media you want to take with you on your travels.
