Review: 7 secure USB drives
Should you trust these flash drives to safeguard your data?

Security against Jabbuts and against losing the drive.

They show two types of security:
    1. one drive uses a physical lock
    2. the rest use encryption software (128-256 bit AES).

1. The physical uses a 5-number key-pad, digital combo-lock with up to 10-digit
keys. The nice thing there is no encryption needed, so no problem to use it
on any computer anywhere. Mr Jabbut demands the access key and you
don't have it (Make up your own excuse.). Needed? I already have #2 with
both M$-Win & Linux software in the unencrypted part. So, I'm ready to
roll. For a person not having the software or is not adept with it, this is a
convenient option. Cost is modest: the 1GB for $33±.

2. Most everyone here has encryption software and can thus already do this.
