Summary: I already had an Ironkey years ago. This one is purchased as a back up to the existing one. Files kept in the drive are not retrievable without an Ironkey and the password of the existing Ironkey holding the original files.
Summary: I anticipated using this device for secure web browsing while traveling, and compared it against the myriad web-based VPN services commercially available. Reviews on Ironkey (& Imation) were generally positive--especially regarding the secure thumb drives. I opted for the S200 1G because I didn't plan on carrying sensitive documents on the device, but wanted a very secure VPN affiliated with an historically reputable company.
Summary: First, I am posting this brief review and will come back and update it later with more info. This is one of the coolest gadgets I've stumbled upon in a long while. It was easy to install and set-up and works great. It has a lot of neat features. The identity Manager (passwords), anonymous browsing, file encryption, Firefox secure browsing, and so on are all fantastic features and the price is very reasonable for this older model.
Summary: While OSX does recognize the drive, you are unable to use the added Ironkey features such as private browsing and password manager, which I what led me to purchase the Ironkey in the first-place.
Summary: Loved this device until it Crashed with ALL my Important data. Then I learned the New owners of the Business do not car about their Customers. The drive will unlock but the software is Jacked. So I have lost thousands of dollars worth of Sensitive information and Imagine does not care. BBuy something from someone that cares about its Customers. I will not recommend this product ever again!
Summary: Very nice product, meet my expectations. The issues for me are a bad OSX support (No embedeed applications supported) The other weak point for me is that the key is rugged, but the cap isn't well linked with the body, so I suspect it can break a this point.
Summary: I purchased this product because I have had an Ironkey device in the past that was swiped by my oldest son for College use. Since then my company has gone through a merger and the number of passwords to all of the different systems has escalated by 2 times the amount. At some point you decide that you want something that will remember all of these different passwords. This is the device.
