Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTLPG2/16GB
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs BEWARE!!! NO PHYSICAL SECURITY!!! 06/07/2013

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.
