5 out of 5 eggsWhy aren't there more of these?

This review is from: CORSAIR Padlock 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Hardware-based encryption Model CMFPLA16GB

Pros: Been using this drive for over a year, and it's been a solid performer. It's big & fast enough for my needs, but also keeps my data SAFE in case of loss or theft. It also works on EVERYTHING, because the encryption is built-in - no software or elevated privileges are required. PCs, Macs, Tablets, Smartphones ... I've used it with all of them without issue.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Just waiting for Corsair to release a 32/64GB, USB 3.0 version!

2 out of 5 eggsToy

This review is from: CORSAIR Padlock 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Hardware-based encryption Model CMFPLA16GB

Pros: Works fine out of the box. Comes with a convenient USB extension cable.

Cons: No self destruct. Only 5 characters are available for password entry. Allows weak passwords (as few as 4 digits). As a result, given enough time the password could be cracked.

Other Thoughts: This design looks like a copy, a toy version, of another brand that I can't mention here. The user interface is very similar but the features are crippled. The Corsair is an impressive toy, however if you want to sleep well knowing your data is really safe then you will have to spend about 3 times as much.

4 out of 5 eggsGood security for the price

This review is from: CORSAIR Padlock 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Hardware-based encryption Model CMFPLA16GB

Pros: Easy to use and keeps all my long randomly generated passwords safe for work and personal banking.

Cons: Wish it was USB 3.0 and a little less bulky (although I know they have to fit in a battery and the pad lock keys).

Other Thoughts: It pays to take the few extra minutes to download and read the online manual, FAQ and watch the video about setting your password for the first time. It is available on the CORSAIR site.

4 out of 5 eggsData Loss / Corrupt Files

This review is from: CORSAIR Padlock 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Hardware-based encryption Model CMFPLA16GB

Pros: none

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: For those that have lost files or others who may not know. Any removable storage has a setting in Windows 7-8, not sure about XP, that can be switched between the performance mode or portable mode. The difference being the speed of file transfer. If set to maximum performance you will be required to eject the media prior to removal, otherwise data loss/corruption may occur. To access the settings. Right click "My Computer" on the desktop, select manage, under storage + disk management, select the thumbdrive in the pane to the right. Right click and select properties, select the hardware tab, select the thumbdrive and click properties, select the Polices tab, and there you will find the settings along with a description of what they do. Hope this helps.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdate: Worked then Failed

This review is from: CORSAIR Padlock 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Hardware-based encryption Model CMFPLA16GB

Pros: This is just an update to a previous post that I can not find yet. My drive failed after a month and is past the Newegg replacment but Corsair approved a replacment right away for the issues.

Cons: Will update if I have any issues with the new drive from Corsair.

1 out of 5 eggsWas great then Failed

This review is from: CORSAIR Padlock 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Hardware-based encryption Model CMFPLA16GB

Pros: Easy to use, can unlock on any system and no need for software.

Cons: Failed after a month of use. Now after I unlock the device and plug it in, no computer is able to read it and then the red and green padlock lights start flashing. I have tried on several different machines with no luck. It is now past the eligability of replacment from newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

This review is from: CORSAIR Padlock 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Hardware-based encryption Model CMFPLA16GB

Pros: I really don't want to go through all the effort and really test the security of the device, but as far as I can tell it does what it is supposed to. I needed a secured drive and wasn't going to spend crazy money on a key made of iron (I know its certified and that gives them the ability to mark up the price.) And compared to keys made of iron, I can use this on my Droid Bionic Lapdock.

Cons: Newegg's page says this has a 10 year warranty by Corsair, but Corsair's page says 3 years... I seem to have bad luck with USB drives as they die just after a year (lots of use, last drive data is only partially readable and took a few days to copy what data I could get) and the 10 year warranty is really what caught my eye.

Other Thoughts: I wish Newegg would double check their accuracy of their page. They are generally one of the more accurate sites.
learning curve on the button interface and light flashes... Manual could also be better about explaining a feature or two. Its missing key details that would be very helpful to know...

Pros: Hardware encryption, ease of use.

Cons: None other than please make 32GB+ ones.
