Summary: A very good price for a secure device of this capacity. It was bought for secure transfer of very large volumes of sensitive data between sites. It was reviewed and passed as fit for purpose by our security experts and has proved to be easy and quick to use.
Summary: Upon first booting up the drive and putting in the default code of 123456, the unit would not let me gain access. Seems something had gone wrong when it was programmed in the factory. I phoned up tech support and had the issue fixed within a few mins but reinitiating the unit. Now it works perfectly. I cant fault the unit now that it functions correctly, with fast transfer speeds and near silent operation.
Summary: After a month of use I am fairly pleased with this. I use it to run my portable software on multiple PC's and it does the job. Only thing you need to be aware of is to disable any sleep or hibernation features on the host computer. If you don't it loses connection and crashes the drive and you have to use CHKDSK to correct bad sectors etc. There seems to be no way to circumvent this which is a shame. But overall, very pleased with this purchase so far.
Summary: DiskAshur is sturdy and easy to operate, just like other iStorage products I've owned for years. Enclosed power adapters come in quite handy. After a couple of hours of constant use, it seems it produces little heat. If it only had RAID capabilities and a network connection, it would really be the holy grail of secure drives.
