1 out of 5 eggsUsless

Pros: Easy to use, cheep and portable

Cons: Locks up to an useable state. I was using this for about a month when I found it would not let me delete any data from the device. We then backed up the data and did the restore procedure in the manual. After it came back we could not reformat the device because our XP machine claims the device is write protected. I emailed customer support 4 days ago and still have had no word.

5 out of 5 eggsConvenient, secure, compact

Pros: Secure - now I can carry confidential documents without anxiety. If the drive is lost or stolen, no big deal. Easy to enter numerical code on keypad.

Convenient - no power supply needed. Powered by the USB port. Includes a Y-cable to draw extra power from dual USB ports, but I found that using the built-in cable is sufficient. Easy PIN password setup.

Capacious - 500Gb goes a long way for backups, documents, and even media.

Compact - fits in a jacket pocket. Can carry in your briefcase all the time.

Quick - If you have USB 2.0 ports, backup takes no time at all. If you have USB1.1 ports on your laptop, it will take you several hours to back up, say, 40Gb (set it up and go to bed; done by morning).

Attractive - nice-looking case and keypad.

Cons: Neoprene case is nice, but it would be even better to have a padded case considering that I carry this thing around with me all the time.

Other Thoughts: Not much more expensive than a standalone 2.5" external USB-powered drive without security. Why not get this instead?

3 out of 5 eggsDon't Forget to Back Up

Pros: Very Secure. Looks cool and the price is very reasonable for the size of the HD.

Cons: It failed after six weeks of daily use. One night it worked the next morning it registered as not being formatted. You know what that means - all my data was gone. Luckily I had backed up almost everything less than 24 hours before the end. Some stuff though is gone forever. I reformatted the drive and reloaded the backup...then the light went RED - but the drive was still visible on the computer and I could read and write to it. This was so strange that I decided to retire the drive and not trust it for important files. In other words - it will more than likely gather dust in a drawer.

Other Thoughts: It's a good concept and the keypad was the hardware I thought would give me the most trouble but it worked flawlessly. The company's 30 day return policy should have scared me off in the first place - but I'm a sucker for new and cool concepts in security.
