Page 8 - Conclusion
Even if you have nothing top secret stored inside your USB flash drive, I think it is perfectly reasonable to be concerned about the risk as any personal data leaves your house. If you understand what I am talking about, then you will understand why the Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 32GB is one of my favorite USB flash drives to ever come across my desk here at APH Networks. Sure, it may not be the fastest -- not by a long shot. Nor is it the toughest, sleekest, or the cheapest, for that matter. So what makes it so special? As obvious as it may seem, it has got to be its hardware encryption capabilities. But it is not just the sheer fact it supports self encryption that made me so convinced about the merits of this product. It is Kingston's balanced approach to developing this USB flash drive that made me such a big fan. Okay, it may not be the fastest. But it is definitely not slow by any means. Also, it may not be toughest. But its solid construction and excellent build quality is beyond anyone's criticism. It is not the sleekest either. But its compact form factor will fit in your wallet, your pocket, or your keychain without being a burden. Lastly, it is not the cheapest. But for $50 at press time, it is really a small premium to pay for the extra layer of security. With it striking a great balance between performance, quality, form, and price, the Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 32GB is bound to impress consumers and business users alike -- especially for those who actually need to carry sensitive documents with them all the time.
