Summary: It`s a very good way to carry your files with you in a secure and practical way. However, if you have a Mac, OS X, I have to alert that it doesn`t work. The launcher, from where you enter your passcode, does not run on my Mac Book Pro with OS X Yosemite. This makes me use my old Windows to work with any file I have in it... This is very, very bad!! I`ve mailed Kingston and had no answers...
doesn't work on Linux; works fine on Windows 7 and 8.1

Summary: First of all, this device works just fine on Windows 7 and 8.1 . Very nice. I am giving it 2 stars though because it fails utterly to work on Linux and Kingston advertises that it does and that is one reason why I bought it. Here is what I wrote to Kingston: My Red Hat Linux 6.2 mounts the drive as /media/DT4000. However, when I execute the initialize command, I get: [root@z200 linux64]# ./dt4000_initialize Can not detect DT4000 device !!
Summary: 07/26/14 Initial Review I've had an Iron Key for years for my secure files. I use it for all my personal financial stuff and master password file for all online accounts. Unfortunately, since the Iron Key is so old it will not work with Windows 8.1 so I had to find an alternative when I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1. This doesn't have all the features the Iron Key had but it does have hardware encryption and lockout after 10 failed password attempts.
Summary: I feel safe that my files are secure with this drive. Albeit a little hefty, it is ruggedized and feels like it can weather any test. The feature of having the drive self destruct after 10 wrong passcodes is interesting. The level of security is on par with most government facilities, not NSA level but good enough. Invest in your future with this drive.
