IronKey Personal 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive - FIPS Hardware-based encryption Model D2-S200-S08-2FIPS
IronKey Personal 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive - FIPS Hardware-based encryption Model D2-S200-S08-2FIPS

Pros: Works with both Win XP and Windows 7 64 bit. I have an 8 Gig one that is issued from my employer. Lightning fast once you get through the initial sign-on for it. Great hardware security that will destroy the diver after a bunch of failed attempts to sign-on. But there is a website that assists you if you forget the password. Uses AES encryption. Extremely sturdy and waterproof.

Cons: Larger and much heavier than other USB storage. But then that is a plus since it is just that strength in the case you are looking for when seeking a truly private device.

Overall Review: I did not get this from Newegg since it is provided for me. But having dealt with them many times in the past I am sure you would be safe getting it from them.

A warning...

PUR FM-9400B AdvancedPlus Faucet Water Filter
PUR FM-9400B AdvancedPlus Faucet Water Filter

Pros: Not sure. I never got to use it.

Cons: The unit comes with 4 faucet adapters that fit "Most Faucets". Well, that is a stretch. I have a typical Moen Faucet that it certainly does not fit. I called Pur and they said that this was all they had and that I should seek a plumber or supply house to provide an adapter to go in front of their adapter. So the cost would have doubled or quadrupled had I proceeded. That is clearly a deal breaker. Pur showed no empathy at all. In the end, return it to the store is all they could come up with. I called Newegg for a return and they said they would wave the restocking fee but I would have to pay the postage. After pointing out that this is not presented in the website, there was no way I could have known that a one size fits all really doesn't. The agent agreed to pay shipping back after that.

Overall Review: Be sure it works with your plumbing before ordering. I was really looking forward to having it. Now I would not buy from Pur ever again.
