Apricorn Aegis Padlock reviewed
Apricorn's Aegis Padlock is a portable USB hard drive, but one that looks like it came from a spy film: its front is dominated by a giant keypad lock. We hope to see how well that security works in practice through our full review of what promises to be a simple but effective means of locking down removable data.
Apricorn DVR Xpander 1 5TB
Apricorn today ramped up its DVR Xpander to include a new 1.5TB model. The practical capacity is about 50 percent more than before and lets owners of recorders with active eSATA or USB 2 ports store as much as 843 hours of additional standard definition TV or 187.5 hours of typical HDTV programming. The company vows a quiet drive but also uses active fan cooling to keep the hard drive inside cool even in tight areas where passive cooling isn't enough.
Apricorn Aegis Vault
Apricorn recently unveiled the Aegis Vault – a 2.5-inch drive protected with 128-bit AES hardware encryption – adding to its large lineup of Aegis portable media drives. The USB-powered drive features an encrypted partition that can be accessed through a password, and can be configured with public partitions for use in a shared environment. The Aegis Vault does not require the host computer to have special software installed to authenticate the drive, allowing any Windows-based computer to access the content in the encrypted partition when the correct password is entered. Pricing for the Aegis Vault starts at $170 for the 80GB version, with drive sizes available up to 250GB.
