The Phiston MediaVise HDD Destroyer (MV-HDD) is a commercial-capacity computer hard disk drive destroyer.
Standing only 25” tall and 12” wide, the MediaVise® is a desktop data destruction solution. Its patented crushing plates deliver over 40,000 pounds of force to the vulnerable platters and read heads of the drive. The hard drive is crushed in less than a minute, mangled and rendered unreadable and discharged into a debris collection bin.
The MV-HDD also destroys and renders inoperable, other miniaturized electronic devices and data storage media including SSDs, USB/flash drives, PDAs, cell/smart phones and circuit boards.
