Take your personal information with you everywhere, safely and securely HARDWARE ENCRYPTION ENSURES DATA STAYS SAFE, ALWAYS Protect your critical data with the IronKey Cryptochip that keeps encryption management on the device and enforces an authorized password to unlock data and applications on the encrypted flash drive. The IronKey Personal drives are FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated with AES 256-bit hardware encryption, the strongest available to protect your sensitive data while meeting regulatory requirements. SAFEGUARD YOUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY WITH PROTECTION THAT NEVER SLEEPS Self-defending IronKey Personal drives provide active protections against the spread of worms, malware and other malicious code. The device will permanently self-destruct after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts, and a ruggedized, waterproof metal chassis resists physical break-ins and is tamper evident. MANAGE AND PROTECT YOUR ONLINE PASSWORDS Manage all your passwords directly from the drive, and protect them using the same hardware encryption engine that guards your other data. The IronKey Identity Manager locally manages all of your online passwords with secure, one-click direct access and protection against keystroke-logging spyware and other online threats. JUST PLUG IN AND GOSECURE, PRIVATE WEB SURFINGA secure, portable version of Mozilla Firefox is pre-loaded on your drive, letting you surf without worry and protecting your passwords whenever you go online. All your data, cookies, and Web history are maintained locally on the drive. PHYSICALLY HARDENED Rely on a rugged metal casing built to protect against physical damage and internal components that are sealed to defend against tampering. It's even passed and exceeded military waterproof testing requirements. BUILT TO LAST Imation uses only the highest quality components, delivering 10 to 20 times the average memory lifespan of a traditional flash drive.

I have been very pleased with the performance of my Ironkeys and just upgraded to the 8GB model. If you need to protect your data when on the go, this is really the only choice.
Uncrackable? Well. . . Barring rubber-hose crypto, check.
Looks sexy? Check.
As long as you pick an even mildly secure password and you don't set up online password recovery, there's essentially no way that your private data will become public against your will. The current version fixes the most annoying issue with earlier models: software that won't play nicely with high-resolution displays. The self-immolation feature after ten blown password attempts could be a mixed blessing if you have trouble remembering passwords or some meddlesome nitwit plays at hacking it or simply doesn't like you but it is also majorly comforting to know that no one is going to get a chance to read the contents. With the hardware components epoxy-potted, even looking at — much less tampering with the hardware is next to impossible as well.
If I could make one improvement (aside from the not entirely unreasonable price), it would be great if Imation offered a rubber boot to make it more comfortable and less noisy when worn around the neck but if you don't mind the "Bubba Effect," a few strategic wraps of duct tape does the job nicely.
Bottom line: If you need it or you even suspect you may need it eventually, get the IronKey. It's not big enough to store your AV library but 8GB is enough storage for most any legitimate purpose. If it's not big enough for yours, there's always the 16 or 32GB models. Or just buy a second drive.
I have owned an Ironkey S100-Personal (Windows only) for many years and loved it for all the nice features such as mobile Firefox and Identity Manager. So I decided to get a new S250-Personal to carry with my MacBook Pro. Sorry to say that the Imation support for Mac is dismal at best.
Copied directly from the Imation users manual.
I have no clue how Imation can call this a Personal Edition Ironkey when none of the Personal Edition apps are supported under Mac. It appears that I need to dig out my old XP machine to do setup, firmware updates and even backups.
I visited the forum.ironkey.com to verify my discoveries. This ironkey site also provides many more reasons for staying away from the Ironkey. Many unhappy Mac-Ironkey users. It appears that Imation slapped a basic Mac interface on the frontend and changed a few lines in the User Guide, and then called it ready for prime time. That is all.
My opinion is that there is no way I can trust this Mac version of Ironkey to be part of my security consulting business. My Ironkey is in the mail back to Amazon for refund. Hopefully Imation has not killed the quality in the windows apps as well.
VERY disappointed CISSP security consultant.
