Failed after two months

Beru, Amazon
28 August 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the IronKey D200 basic and after two months, it failed and is no longer loading on any computer. Wrote Imation to let them know and they offerred a replacement if I ship the defective unit back but since it has a lot of very sensitive data on it, I can't do that. So I lost my data and the $350 I paid for it. Imation suggested a few things to try, one of which was to update the built-in software but since the computer can't see it....

Solid product

Jeff Helms, Amazon

  • Summary: I was forced to get a secure USB drive for work. After researching everything on the "approved" list, I settled on the Ironkey. I'm glad I did. It proved to be an over-all solid product and was very easy to set up and use. My one gripe is that the cap seems like it will very hard to keep from losing.

Iron Key works great

Robert Earl Watson, Amazon

  • Summary: The Iron Key secure flash drive works just as documented on Amazon. I use it on Mac machines and the setup is easy and using the device to hold a file of all my passwords and other sensitive items is straight forward. Anyone who wants to key secure information with them needs to get one of these nifty devices.

Good, but poorly designed

John McBride, Amazon
5 May 2011
  • Summary: I'm not going to review the tech aspects of this product, because frankly I am not qualified. I can comment on a few of the design deficiencies though. There are three significant problems with the design. 1) the cap is level with the USB port, meaning that the cap doesn't really protect the USB from pressure from the sides.

Poor Quality and Reliabity

Luli, Amazon
7 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this based on the security features, but the product was not reliable. In less than six months after purchase the product failed. It was not recognized from any of my computers and it had to be replaced. Unfortunately I lost all data since last back up. Vendor was responsive and offered to replace product. Out of all the USB drives I have used over the years, this is the only that has failed. For a $200 USB Drive, that is a very bad quality record.
