This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTLPG2/16GB
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.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I'm using this processor with the following hardware:
MoBo = ASRock FM2A75M-ITX
PSU = 250W Enhance ENP-7025B
HDD = Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3320418AS
OS = Windows Server 2008 R2 (basically Windows 7)
Here are some of the power ratings I'm getting with this build using a Kill-a-Watt:
88-90 watts peak during boot
32 watts idle at the windows desktop
~32-38 watts while browsing.
using ethernet adds ~1-2 watts
usb wifi adds ~4 watts (realtek rtl8188SU)
58-64 watts playing World of Warcraft at ultra settings and getting 15-24 fps at 1024x768.
58-64 watts playing Fallout: New Vegas on High settings at 1024x768.
Cons: none. My goal was to build a portable/low power gaming rig that would fit in my backpack with all my other stuff and run under 70 watts. This hit the nail right on the head.
Other Thoughts: I am amazed that this was able to run WoW on ultra settings and get 15-24 fps in Orgrimmar on a busy day. There were definately some occasional big frame drops but I would definitely consider WoW playable on Ultra settings. Still, if your pvping you'll probbably want to set it to High or good and customize the settings that way you get a steady ~60 fps.READ FULL REVIEW
