Performance

I decided to upgrade to this 512MB secure drive from Lexar after I was very happy with the 128MB version (also from Lexar). What a mistake! The drive is slow (I mean slow) even on a USB 2.0 port. It takes forever to show even the directory contents. Takes about a minute to trasfer a 40kB file from my hard disk, that is if it does not corrupt the file in the process. Looks like bigger is not definitely better in this case. I am trying for a refund/replacement.

This product is a great concept, with separate partitions for secure and unsecured files. However, the security software is not compatible with all operating systems (i.e. NT), so when traveling, anything in your secure directory might not be recognized. Furthermore, the drive seems to keep corrupting, which requires reformatting the drive, and therefore losing everything on the USB key. SO, if you are just using this to carry files with you, and don't plan to make changes or move new files to the key, it works fine. But if you are making edits, or transferring files between computers, this is not the product for you. This is assuming that all of these products function as mine; it could be mine is just a fluke...

the built in security feature is annoyance and the drive read/write speed is not all that amazing. i suggest you buy a regular flash drive as this drive is slow b/c it has to load the security software, which is not necessary if there is just a single user. Hopefully buy.com is an impartial retail store and let you read this insightful review.
