Customer Reviews

Multiple units with battery issues I purchased over 20 of these for a project at our company. They worked great in the beginning, but now they are starting to have issues with turning on. When plugged in to charge, the lights work ok. When pulled out of USB port to use them, no lights and they appear to be dead. It looks to be a battery issue and is affecting at least 5 of the 20+ units we purchased 2.5 years ago. Beware. 2Comparison of 2.0 vs 3.0, plus Mac tips If you're used to using the Secure Key 2.0, the first thing you should be aware of is this one is significantly larger; i.e. the old key in its case will fit inside the new case. It's a few mm taller, but significantly wider. They are about the same length. The much thicker keychain loop may also be problematic depending on your key ring; it mostly forces you to use a wire loop like the old 2.0 came with anyway.So, that being the case, I've found my 480 GB 3.0 gets knocked offline, from the operating system's perspective, far more frequently than my old 2.0 did. As long as you're using a journaled file system on it, you hopefully won't lose data, but if you're working on something important, on a laptop, you do risk data loss if you're working on open files on this drive. I use a MacBook Pro so there's not much clearance between the Secure Key and the surface below, making it very easy for knocking it offline by simply moving the laptop around.My final complaint; this thing runs much warmer, and could even be described as hot if you do extended operations. I sync'd about 30 gigs of data from my old Secure Key 2.0 to my new 480 GB 3.0, and when it had completed, the 3.0 was "hot"; no other way to describe it. Makes me concerned about how much impact the 3.0 will have on my laptop/tablet battery life since I can't find published current draw specs. The 3.0 advertises 'thermal management' where it throttles back read/write to control heat, but still doesn't go into specifics. Even sitting idle, it's significantly warmer than the 2.0, so it's sitting there chewing up battery life either way.With the complaints out of the way, it is what it is, if you need rock solid security and reliability, with a larger capacity than their old 2.0 model, then this is your ticket. If you don't need the capacity (obviously 480 GB is much larger than 32 GB), and don't care about the speed (usb 2 vs 3), the 2.0 may be a better option.I'll wrap it up with some tips for Mac users. The 3.0 shows up as a 'hard drive' rather than a traditional USB drive. This is important because the default settings for MacOS energy saver are to put hard drives to sleep when the computer tries to save energy, which is typically when the screen saver turns on. So my 3.0 would get ejected when the OS puts it to sleep; I had to turn that option off, and it's unfortunately not drive-specific, it's all or nothing. Additionally, you should probably edit your Spotlight preferences and choose to exclude your Secure Key from indexing, for security, performance and battery life reasons. 3Easy to use and secure Easy to use and secure. Took me a bit to figure out during the setup that the software they mention for programming the key is only if you buy the docking station for programming multiple keys at once.If you are only doing one then no need to buy the additional docking station and ignore the part of the setup to not manual program if using software.I may also be the only person that wore a dunce hat for this problem but I'm new to gadgets for data security so I wanted to share for others that are new like me to data security 5Not ready for prime time at the 240GB in 2017 I have used these for work in the past and have had great results with the 8GB version.I have been using the product for a 2 months now; it gets very hot when moving data; this week the rechargeable battery no longer functions and I have to enter the pin code when it is plugged into a USB port. This makes it difficult to use depending on where it is located on the PC.While I feel the data is secure, it is just no ready for mainstream use at this size yet. I wish I would have gotten one of the hard drives instead. 2Fantastic security solution I can't say enough good things about this drive. Though the price is somewhat high, you're absolutely getting what you pay for. The drive and case are both anodized machined aluminum, and the case has a water-resistant (or proof?) seal. The flash drive is extremely feature-rich, as it's intended to help government workers keep their sensitive information safe and it does this extremely well.One of my favorite features is the "Brute force" PIN number. You can set a special second PIN number that completely overwrites the data stored on the flash drive to securely erase it. It doesn't even need to be plugged into the computer to do this, as again, it's got its own battery. It can also be set to overwrite your data if somebody tries to brute-force the password more than 10 times, and the data can't be decrypted from the computer, only the keypad.If this isn't the perfect data security solution, I don't know what is. It has fantastic build quality, feels weighty in the hand, the security measures are beyond reproach, and it's easily concealable.Would highly recommend to anybody who needs to keep data secure. 5No data is safe without Apricorn USB drives. 2.0 is better for data storage--but 3.0 is better for PortableApps Firefox etc. An Aegis 2.0 is cheaper and better for data-only (reasons below)--but having one Aegis 3.0 is better if desiring high-security primary use with USB-mounted apps as explained below...The Aegis 3.0 Secure USB Drive has two minor glitches: 1. Frequent shut-downs--but not with desktops and not if using the free fixes (see below). 2. Feels hot in use. I do not know if this will affect longevity? But where the 3.0 speed is not important, the 2.0 is less costly and also seems more certain to last well.Either way, I like the security of a physically-encrypted PortableApps Firefox, backup programs and personal data (available free from the internet)--and no other USB stick is as secure. Might as well use it at home with the desktop as well as with the laptop when traveling--so you don't have to adjust when suddenly leaving. Then you are more secure from physical as well as viral induced failures.Pros.* For updating and 'save as' back-ups of blog pages--my Apricorn 3.0 takes only 10-15 seconds vs. 20-60 seconds with my old Apricorn 2.0. ALSO with Apricorn 3.0 there is no freeze-up of the PortableApps Firefox during the download. So the true comparison is 0 seconds vs. 30-60 seconds wait with each operation. ALSO you can use a 2.0 USB port! I cannot explain this--but with the Apricorn 3.0, I notice an equal efficiency increase whether using a 3.0 or a 2.0 port.* Small keychain size, so you can easily carry 2 for auto-backups with true security in case of loss or old-age failure. A third copy should stay at home. Of course, the two secondary back-ups can all be Apricorn 2.0.* Self-destruct sequence enables you to "wipe the server" instantly.Cons.* OneDrive/GoogleDrive/AmazonDrive might be safer and more convenient, especially for high-memory + low-security files such as home videos etc.* The case of the Apricorn Aegis can be lost unless you tape on a U eyelet for a lanyard. (See photo attached.) You can then get a necklace lanyard at any Walmart and thus make sure that the case sticks with the stick. Put your email and telephone number on the case--using the same clear tape with which you attach the eyelet. (For the eyelet, I use the tough plastic from a piece of old-fashioned antenna wire with the two wires cut off. The soft cord of the ID necklace can be looped onto the handle of a handbag or Samsonite and closed with the Apricorn stick either inside or outside--thus used without detaching--thus unlikely to be forgot.)* Any external memory has the potential for very-annoying frequent shut-downs. If this happens, there are two solutions.a) Save a folder of favorite photos on the USB drive--and use them as your "desktop background"--and activate a slide-show with a 10-second delay. This seems effective in preventing the USB drive from falling asleep. (If you must use your laptop on battery--then perhaps use small-KB low-quality graphics or line drawings and de-select "stop slideshow on battery power.")b) And/or... google for the free app KeepAliveHD--download and install to the computer--and set it to update a small text file on the external drive every 50 seconds. (Complete details below.)* If you are James Bond, Edward Snowdon or Hillary Clinton, you might need a much larger Apricorn USB memory. Otherwise, most of your non-personal junk can probably be saved on the standard OneDrive/GoogleDrive/AmazonDrive cloud memory. If you are a doctor, accountant or other professional with large amounts of high-security information, you probably can subscribe to a high-security cloud system--which will meet your legal requirements and will be a bit safer from being lost, stolen, cooked or smashed.In summary, I suggest the Apricorn USB system primarily for your very-own truly-personal passwords, credit cards and other data which you do not want identity thieves, China, Russia, Anonymous or the Bengazzi Committee to get ahold of.**********************************Detailed notes on KeepAlive HD--and other attempts to prevent repeat shut-downs of Aegis 3.0.~ So far, a 10-second "desktop slide show" seems equally effective in preventing shut-downs. (Right-click on any Windows desktop > Personalize > Desktop Background Slide Show > Picture Location: Browse and select a folder on your USB drive with several photos in it > Change Picture Every: select "30 seconds" > Save Changes. (For great free pics, find the "get more themes online" link, near the top of the main "personalize your desktop" page. After installing a theme, the Slide Show page shows the URL location of the resulting pics. Copy the ones you like best onto the USB drive. If you need to reduce power usage, then perhaps use any free image editor to reduce the physical size and the quality of the JPG image files so as to minimize the KB file sizes.)~ NoSleepHD-1.0 was not successful in keeping the Apricorn Aegis 3.0 awake on my HP Stream Notebook.~ KeepAliveHD works best for me when set to write every 50 seconds. I tried 100 seconds, so that less workload is being added--but then the Aegis 3.0 sometimes would shut down. If 50 seconds is not enough, try 30 seconds.~ Seems best not to select "auto-run at startup" under Settings. Auto-run can cause confusion by trying to write when the Aegis is offline.~ KeepAlive is started by clicking the check box,"Enable writing mode."Please note that:~ Both my desktop and my notebook use Windows 8.1~ The Aegis 2.0 has no problems "keeping awake" with my desktop or my notebook.~ The Aegis 3.0 has no problem with my desktop--it even keeps awake all nightduring screen saver mode (although not if the "sleep" mode kicks in).~ However, by itself, the Aegis 3.0 does not keep awake with my HP Stream notebook.~ The Aegis 3.0 also can be kept awake by playing YouTube videos on the USB-mounted Portable Firefox--which is not ideal--and quite unfeasible with a metered or 4g connection!~ Presumably, it would also work to leave a browser tab open to a small-download javascript "auto refresh"tutorial demo page which can be set for 30 seconds.~ Or, Windows itself can be programmed to open and close things repeatedly.~ Or, several free "macros" also can be programed to copy and repeat any actions--such as writing in and saving a text file--very similarly to KeepAliveHD.However, KeepAliveHD is obviously the best method while available.~ But, so far, the "slide show" solution works well and seems best.***************************************Note: the following are often suggested but DO NOT HELP for Aegis 3.0:HP Notebook > Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings> Change Plan Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings> + USB Settings > + USB Selective Suspend Setting> Plugged In: click "Enabled" and then select "Disabled" > OK[I suggest disabling this when "Plugged In," but not for when "On Battery."]> Control Panel\System and Security\System > Device Manager> Universal Serial Bus Controllers> Generic USB Hub > Power Management> De-select: "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" > OK[I do NOT recommend this de-selection and it does not help for Aegis 3.0.]> USB Root Hub > Power Management> De-select: "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" > OK[I do NOT recommend this de-selection and it does not help for Aegis 3.0.]~ I also tried using an inverse-Y USB cable such as are used for extra power.Power differences might explain why the Aegis shuts down with an 8.1 notebookbut not with an 8.1 desktop? However, the Y-cable did not help. 4The old model did not do this and there was no way to know when it was really full unless you charged it for an hour and one hal First, it is so much sturdier than the earlier model, including that new hardened loop. Second, the new features for making it read/write, and read/only are welcome addition. Third. Charging it makes one of the lights blink until it is full. At that point it stops blinking. The old model did not do this and there was no way to know when it was really full unless you charged it for an hour and one half ( The time recommended in the manual).The only thing I do not like is the cover, which is the same as the old model and does not clip in. It is made so that it tightens when it gets to the bottom open the USB stick, but still may slip with a lot of use. 4If you need to keep data safe and private, this is a great option If you have an offline crypto currency wallet, or you have a password file or any other confidential files you need kept secure and private, this is what you need.The buttons are easy to press even with large fingers. It's casing is aluminum so very durable and it comes with an aluminum sleeve to go over top to protect the buttons when not in use.You can assign a 16 digit code, there is a reasonable amount of failure attempts before a failsafe wipe all data kicks in as well. I believe you get 4 attempts and then you can press in a code and it'll allow 4 more attempts before the wipe data protection happens.Encryption is a hardware level so it'll work on a mac, windows PC or probably even LInux . If the drive is encrypted you can't mount it in any OS. You first must enter the code and decrypt the file system before the operating system can read it.I would suggest buying these in a pair set though, that way you can use one as a master and one as a secure backup. Or backup to a non-encrypted flash drive that's using software encryption software like VeraCrypt to make an encrypted virtual hard drive.Very happy with the purchase, I've had this now for a few months and it works flawlessly. 5Stay away!! Product mulfunctioned in less than 6 months The product mulfunctioned in less than 6 months.Had been using a Kingston data traveler for a few years beforehand.It had started showing problems so I purchased this one as a replacement and transfered all my data there.As the product was still new there was data stored in it for which I didn't keep a backupthus once the product failed I permanently lost data part of which I cannot recover.The product accepts the password but does not unlock.Although I remember the key combination and the device accepts it (goes green and waits to be inserted in the USB drive) once I plug it in it goes back to redand product support said they cannot recover the data(although if my key combination is correct and I can provide it to them).They further said they cannot refund the purchase since it was purchased via amazon.They can only send me a new one which I cannot trust if the original failed in less than 6 months.Humble opinion: Stay away ... 1Circuit Failure of Six Months Worked great for six months then physically failed and is not recognized by and USB port. Although under warranty, obviously a production secure key cannot be returned or exchanged and must be destroyed forgoing value of warranty. MTBF (mean-time-between-failure) is too low for such an expensive drive. We have used other Apricorn products for years without failure. I assume the great heat generated by these keys breaks down the circuit. 1
