Rating: 5/5Great Security backed by Great Reliability!
Pros: -- Great read/write speeds; tested both and found them in line with SanDisk's advertised speeds. -- Write speeds smoked most of my other USB drives – and this one was writing to high encryption standards while the others were not! -- Solid encryption with easy “secure partition” set-up; partitions size can be changed at any time. -- I had a question regarding the CruzerPro software that came pre-installed and SanDisk's live (yes, voice) support was quick, friendly, and effective - a rarity these days. -- Although plastic, unit feels sturdy with tight cap retention; looks are simple but professional / classy. -- “Lockdown” feature after a preset # of wrong password entries prevents someone from bombarding your drive with password-breaking software to hack their way in to gain access to your encrypted files.
Cons: -- I am not sure how many “predetermined” number of wrong password entries will put the drive in “lockdown” mode – this info should have come with the drive’s documentation, but didn’t. -- Being a relatively new product on the market, documentation is someone limited at this time. -- Although you can change the secure partition size at any point, you need to back up both secure and public files to another drive before beginning…because the process reformats the entire USB drive; a minor but unnecessary procedure.
Other Thoughts: --Besides a few minor shortfalls, the pros far outweigh the cons for this security-focused drive. The greatest factor weighing-in is the ability to write files with 256-AES encryption with speeds rivaling the fastest on the market! I am considering buying a second one – one for all my electronic health files and one for my basic financial data. At 4GB each, I should plenty of room to spare. --MY BOTTOM LINE OPINION – IF YOU NEED AN AFFORDABLE, RELIABLE, SECURE USB DRIVE FOR PERSONAL OR PROFESSIONAL DATA, THIS IS YOUR MATCH!
