Top Customer Reviews
Very pleased with Ledger. They do listen to their customers. The new firmware 1.2 features add some of the features missing in my previous review. The addition of Litecoin is welcoming, as well as the new Ledger Manager. Token and contract support for Ethereum, and some other small additions. I would like to see Monero or Dash support in the near future but already Ledger is paving the way for a hardware wallet to have and has been the first to include multi-crypto support on a single device. Great job Ledger! Keep it up.
I am a normal every day Jo, so my review of this item is my own opinion. I apologize for any grammar errors. It is a quick review and I am just winging it. The build and quality of the Nano S is nice. The screen is welcoming but very limited as far as in formations goes. The metal cover that swing open is a bit annoying as there is no way to lock it in place. It is pretty loose on there and you can bend it to have a stiffer movement, but over time it just loosens up again.
The bitcoin side of the Nano S UI is super easy to use. Your typical information is displayed. However unlike the Trezor there is no way to tag descriptions on transactions.
The ethereum side of the Nano S UI is very limited. Not very much information is displayed, very basic. Your are limited to one address only, a disappointment for sure.
At the time of this review both apps requires a desktop/laptop to use. No mobile apps as of yet. If you want to know your balance, the only way is to connect it to the chrome app. Disappointing because it has a display and no setting to show your balance. Even the box it came in show the Ledger with a balance on the picture?
The 4 digit PIN require is ok, but I prefer how Trezor does it with random pins. I think Ledger scrambled PIN could be set up like the Trezor in the near future.
The FIDO security works really well for my drop box and gmail. If your going to use both nano S and the Trezor, I recommend setting up the nano S first then the Trezor. For some reason I does not work the other way round.
Have said all that it does what it suppose to do. Hopefully future updates will address limitations mentioned. Currently I use the Ledger for my ETH holding and my Trezor for my BTC. Since I use my Trezor more often with bitcoin this works for my setup. Later on I throw the Nano S into a Secured Safe. It is decent and I do recommend it.
It comes wrapped in a nice box with index cards, one being an instruction, and another with 24 blank spaces for you to write down your private key. The device itself is completely restorable and replacable as long as you maintain this, and the best part is the company never has your private keys. plug the USB into your computer and the device will turn on. In order to add or remove apps and update firmware you have to download the google chrome extension for the ledger manager and the extensions for whichever wallets you want to use whether it be bitcoin or ethereum, dogecoin, etc.
The software is very easy to use and you have the ability to install new apps as they become available. Also installed with it is FidoU2f which will allow you to use the device as a multifactor key. Super easy multifactor solution. I set mine on my Google account and it signs me in seamlessly after I enter my password and have the device plugged in.
My only complaints about this device is that it needs to be plugged into your computer to work and it requires you to have google chrome and install their extensions. It would be nice if it worked without having to plug it in since there are some places I don't have access to a computer. They do have one called "nano ledger blue" that supposedly works with smartphones but the price is quite a bit higher. Other than that this device is portable and works great!
Pros - portable, discrete, easy to restore
Cons - requires a computer and google chrome to run
As an article of manufacture, it's pretty clear corners were cut. It feels cheap, and doesn't fit well together. Direct an eye for detail at this thing, and you start to pray they took more care on the insides than the outsides. For an expensive as this thing is, I expected more.
