BUILD & DESIGN
The Locker+ G2 is encased in metal and feels really solid, unlike many plastic USB flash drives. The silver finish looks attractive and you can attach it to a key ring via the loop in the back of the drive. The small, white piece in the middle of the drive that looks like a jumper connector, is the activity LED that glows blue when active.
The cap, which is also encased in metal, stays on nice and secure to the body of the drive. You'll have to keep track of it though, since it doesn't attach to the back end of the drive.
The build quality and appearance of the Locker+ G2 is much nicer than most USB flash drives I'm used to and Kingston backs it with a 5 year warranty and free technical support.
If you need to carry documents on your USB flash drive securely, you can use software-based encryption tools, like TrueCrypt, but it can be cumbersome to set up and use. Using a USB flash drive with hardware encryption built in, is much easier. The Locker+ G2 uses 256-bit AES security to secure your data and all you need to use it is your password.
The first time you insert the Locker+ G2 into a PC or Mac, you'll be prompted to set up the secure data partition.Read more ›
Flash drives are easily lost, dropped out of your pocket (happened to me when I sat down in a hotel lobby chair), misplaced, forgotten in a hotel computer USB drive and they often contain volumes of private company financial information, internal letters or memos about sensitive information or company plans, private information about the executives themselves (scandals?), or human resources employee data, etc... For this reason, we only use Kingston security drives and require all senior executives to use them.
Then, using the computer's usb 3.0 port, I transferred 6.5 GB of data to the Data Traveler (DT from this point) in only a few minutes. Much faster than when I have tried the same thing on usb 2.0 ports. I locked the DT and rebooted the computer. Then I reinserted the DT and unlocked it. All the data files were easily accessed and they appeared to be intact. Total occupied space was the same as on the original disk.
The stainless steel case seems to be sturdy.
No serious drawbacks; only a couple I can mention. The one that matters to me is that there is not a "secure backup" for DT, and there is on IronKey. In this, the control panel has an option to backup the key's data in a secure, passwork-protected folder on the computer hard drive. And to recover data from that location onto an IronKey. Great feature, and a main reason I used to purchase IronKeys. But I can find software that will accomplish this for me, and I'll probably use another DT for the backup.
I hope Kingston will add this feature to the software. It would not be a difficult addition for them and it would make the Data Traveler even more attractive.
Less important is that on my Windows 8, the unlocking program or Launcher cannot start automatically when I insert the DT. It did start automatically on computers with earlier versions of Windows. But it started without a hitch and unlocked when I entered the password once I double clicked the file name. Now I have pinned the Launcher to the Windows 8 task bar and it is quick and simple to use.Read more ›
