James Bond Style USB Thumbdrive - IronKey


I have been looking around for a good secure USB key/Software solution for quite awhile. I have used TrueCrypt for years and it works great for what it does. But I wanted more. One watch of the IronKey demo and believe me, you will want one.

Boo. IronKey took the video down!

They are quite pricey at $149 ($37.25/Gig) for the 4 gig model, so I did a bit of research before I took the plunge. Everything I read for the most part was good. Now that I have the device I must agree, it is a great solution to many peoples problems. My only gripe is that you can-t add shortcuts to the management interface. Not a big deal, but makes the interface pretty useless besides manageing the device, backups, etc. If you are looking for a USB drive to carry on your keychain everywhere you go- this might currently be your best solution. Here are some pictures of the drive.

The HD Tach results are pretty good for a USB2 thumb drive. I will post my current workstation specs soon. For more information, Digital Reviews has a great IronKey review.
