    not 100% shockproof, but much much more shock resistant then normal drives. ive had plenty of people tell me they kept their USB IDE HDD adapter case in their breifcase/backpack and found the HDD no longer worked after the flight/bus trip. A little bit a shock resistance can keep the HDD alive thru the many trips.
