Corsair's Flash Padlock should be appealing to many users, since there are many professional as well as everyday users for whom security is a major concern. While most other solutions are software based, with shortcomings and limitations, this hardware solution from Corsair promises greater security. The retail price of the Corsair Flash Padlock is around US$35, not much higher than a standard 2GB USB stick. The read performance was very good with 30MB/sec, while writing was much slower at 11MB/sec.
If we had to complain about something, it is the dimensions of this USB stick. Compared with standard USB sticks, this is a little on the large side. This can be excused when we consider that there is extra circuitry required, but at least it will secure your data, like no-other currently sold product.
