iStorage diskGenie Encrypted External HDD Review

Softpedia
26 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Lately, we have seen more and more hardware encrypted storage solutions making their way into the market, but the diskGenie is one of the most innovative of them. By simply taking a numeric pad and placing it on the drive itself, iStorage managed to build a secure hard drive that isn’t any larger than a regular, non-encrypted, storage solution, while offering truly plug-and-play operation.

iStorage diskGenie review

Techworld
1 February 2010
  • Summary: This number-locked USB drive promises incredibly secure lockdown of sensitive data. Being agnostic to computer type, and not requiring any software to be installed on a host computer, is a major bonus. Two-tier admin/user access ensures that the drive’s data should always remain accessible by its owner even if a second user forgets their code or tries to reset the code. Compared to the same capacity in unencrypted storage, this is an expensive USB drive.

iStorage diskGenie 128GB SSD Review

Tech Reviews
7 April 2011
  • Conclusion: To conclude, the diskGenie 128gb SSD from iStorage has proven to be probably the most secure and portable drive at the present time, I doubt it is the most afforable as iStorage suggest. With the 128gb version (with AES-256 Encryption) costing £379 compared with the Kingston’s SSDNow 128gb which only costs £189, there is definitely a large difference in price.

iStorage Disk Genie

  • Conclusion: Ultimately the Disk Genie from iStorage isn’t a bad product. It’s not too quick and it’s not a looker, but its got a large storage facility in a compact device and it’s about as secure as you’re going to get from a portable solution at this price bracket. Speaking of which, it may be a little high for some people, but for anyone that wants some real peace of mind when handling secure information, you could do far worse than this piece of kit.
  • Pros: Secure as hell, Simply to use security protocols, Reasonable storage facility
  • Cons: Doesn’t look that great, Not particularly fast data transfer

iStorage diskGenie 320GB Encrypted Portable Hard Drive

Tech Reviews
5 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The iStorage diskGenie is an excellent product for users who are concerned or cautious about data security. It’s encryption method is rock solid and will surely mean data cannot be accessed by dubious thieves. Normally with products such as the Disk Genie, we’d expect some sort of flaw – usually in performance – this is not true in the diskGenie’s case.

iStorage diskGenie : iStorage diskGenie 640MB

3 July 2010
  • Summary: Recently I reported on the diskGenie , an external hard drive from iStorage . This device adopts a "belt and braces" approach to security by incorporating AES 256-bit encryption with a PIN Number being required to gain access to the drive. In fact without the correct PIN number being entered, the drive would remain invisible to the operating system.
