The only problem I've had so far is that, while it does not require an installation of drivers to work, it does require installation privileges to run the encryption software. So, I can only access my encrypted data at work if I sign into my computer as an administrator. I'd like an option to download and install the drivers once, so I can access it more readily.
Other than the issue with the encryption (which I have no trouble accessing on other computers), it's a great product.
I was a big fan of the design of these USB keys, but do not let the aesthetics fool you. I will warn you now - buying a key for its design and portability will never make up for the pain you feel when you find out all your data is corrupted!!! The design is flawed - the plastic insert that covers the USB connection will inevitably get lost if you carry this around a lot. The key looks nice in the product photo, but if you flip it around, you will see that the metal connection is exposed to the environment. Without any protection, this connection will then fail within a short time.
Losing my data was not the only bad part of the product - the customer service is worse! They will require you to use their minimum $399 data recovery service to avoid losing your warranty. Their customer service reps are not helpful.
For your own sake, buy a drive that is more durable than this. No matter how portable you want your USB drive to be, never buy a design that puts your data at such high risk of corruption as this one.

This was a perfect product. The only downside is after a while the contact begin to wear down and the computer will slowly start showing difficulty reading it. Would buy again.Published 8 days ago by Brooke

Didn't fit well in some USB slots (e.g., Mac keyboard) - was too slim and had to hold it in place during backups. Broke in less than a year.Published 5 months ago by EmmyP
