BEWARE!!! NO PHYSICAL SECURITY!!!
Pros: the drive is compact. the cap stays on.
Cons: My main concern is that the circuit board is not coated with epoxy! this means that the encryption module could theoretically be bypassed and the memory modules could be accessed directly which definitely makes the drive less secure. I verified this by pulling the flash drive out of its shell with a pair of pliers. the only thing securing the drive in the metal shell are a couple of plastic tabs that mate into small notches on the sides of the flash drive circuit board. so basically the drive has no real physical security.
Other Thoughts: the read/write speed is on the slow side but this is to be expected for a usb 2.0 encrypted flash drive for this price. also the app that is built into the flash drive that "unlocks" the storage space on the drive is a windows executable, so this means you can't use this solution on a mac or linux computer without running emulation software, but again, this is common for encrypted drives that don't have a physical keypad.

Good Deal, Works Great
Pros: 16G, Encrypted, Works on XP and 7 for sure, hardware encryption is MUCH faster than software only encrypted USB thumb drives. Clean interface, when active is just another drive letter. Wipes itself if someone enters 10 wrong passwords. Very strong metal case. Small. Leaves room for adjacent drives to attach to my laptop.
Cons: The cap is not attached, so be careful with that. Must be connected to a PC (or MAC), don't buy this for showing pictures or videos on your TV. If you want to do that, buy a Corsair Padlock2 with built-in keyboard.
Other Thoughts: Needing a PC to access the data is really minor for me. I wanted a reliable, hardware encrypted USB drive to replace my 8G Kinston Locker+ 8G (was close to filling it) and this fit the need perfectly.
