True Plug and Play!

Farawayman, B&H Photo
16 August 2015
  • Excerpt: Worked exceptionally well - read the instructions, plugged it into my Mac, changes the master password and it works like a dream. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the carry bag is a touch too small to accommodate the extension USB-3 cable that comes with the disk.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use

Not Truly Bootable!!

Steven Bee "sbrown", Amazon
30 July 2015
  • Summary: It's super fast, and probably a great drive for a general-purpose user, but contrary to the advertised features, the device is not useful as a boot device for installing an operating system.

Very useful for my needs

  • Summary: This has been on my list for some time as a method to store and protect information. it is not the least expensive but well worth the cost. I like the fact that it is easily encrypted and protected by a simple set of numbers pw.

Great while it lasted

dave s., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Pros: Great transfer rate, solid compact design. Well documented.
  • Cons: Would convert files to directories and would not open. ex: Document.doc is a file, the hard drive would only recognize it as a directory, thus it would not open it. This happened to quite a few files over the course of a year. Less than a year later, it is dying.

it's better to "copy" than "move"

G.Greene, Amazon
7 January 2015
  • Summary: Does what I need. Not as fast as I had hoped, but it's probably my system and method of use. While transferring an 80 GB file via USB 3.0, my write speed was about 32 MB/sec. I'm running Win 7 64 with a quad core AMD Phenom. Have to read the manual carefully about setting up a password.

Get the solid state only--others are noisy--USB-2 works fine--best from PortableApps

Krystof, Amazon

  • Summary: You probably don't need terrabytes for ultra-secure data. If so, get the solid state--less noisy and probably more reliable. Also, the USB-2.0 works fine. I am right now typing this on a free "Portable Firefox" from PortableApps.

Decent for first layer encryption

jjonesieee, Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: I've owned this drive for about a month now. I am satisfied with it, however I found the ability to only use a numeric unlock code to be a bit disappointing. IMHO, this is a decent drive as a first layer of encryption, to say a second layer full volume disk encryption (LUKS or TrueCrypt).
