Excerpt: Pros: I have to remember over seventy ID/password combinations with numerous online accounts, online bill pay, bank account numbers etc. I use numerous computers to access all of these things so the only way to access this data is to carry a USB drive with the information. But in a way this is a terribly insecure thing to do: If the drive is lost all of ones information is available to whoever would find it.
Pros: Platform Independent, Portable, Reliable, Very Secure, Water Resistant
Summary: I like to carry a USB backup that contains the entire contents of my PC's hard drive. Why you ask? In case my house is broken into--or it burns to the ground. Don't laugh, I'm an author and know other authors who lost everything in house fires. But what if you lose the USB? That possibility used to worry me a great deal but not any more. Thanks to the fact that the Corsair Padlock has its own keypad, and doesn't rely on computer software, it's theoretically hack proof.
Great drive, reasonable price for the advantage of hardware encription

Summary: Reviews seem to be dated so here is my experience! I love this drive! Works very well for me and the price is reasonable. I am an IT instructor and I don't have to worry if it is left unattended. The computers will lock automatically (or I lock it when I walk away) and if it is removed it locks itself.
Excerpt: This is a great and powerful device. I use it when travelling for work. The orange case is great and don't mide lost some information. The password change use a professtional way, not easy for just tried and get.
Summary: Easy to use. Does not need any software to be installed so it can be easily used on any machine. Less vulnerable to an attack since the encryption and key are contained only on the flash drive so no one can steal the password. I wish there were a total of 10 keys, however. Only 5 keys limits the number of unique passwords which can be used.
