I’ve always been a fan of encrypted flash drives, especially ones that require a password or key-code to be entered before Windows or any other platform will even recognize them. This not only makes these drives more secure, but also makes them platform-independent. The big game-changer with the K300 is the addition of the OLED screen. This allows you to follow the on-screen prompts and menus to enter your password, change settings, and more. Gone are the days of guessing you hit the right button combination or entered your password correctly, you’ll see it right on the screen!
Having this feature makes the K300 easier to use, which means if you are deploying these across your business you’ll spend less time and money training employees and far less time on tech support.
This is a USB 3.1 gen 1 drive and we observed speeds around 200 MB/s read and 100 MB/s write, which is great for a flash drive. For those wondering about capacity, we reviewed the 8GB version of the drive, but DataLocker offers the drive in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities. Right now the 8GB version of the drive is selling at our favorite online retailer for $124.22.
If your data security is important to you I would highly suggest investing in a drive like the DataLocker Sentry K300. It has some really unique features that set it apart from others. Overall ThinkComputers gives the DataLocker Sentry K300 Encrypted Flash Drive a 9 out of 10 score.
