I have covered several drives here in the past and to be fair some of these are quite the kit with James Bond ringing about them and this one is no different but it has a trick up its sleeve compared to others when it comes to the tech aspect. Most of what I have covered uses keypads this one does not infact there is little to it at all you just get a cable in the box there is a couple of LEDs on top and then there is the bluetooth unlocking which is excellent and works every time without fail and I tried and tested on several phones just to be sure.
When it comes to drives like this people ask about the FIPs level ( Federal Information Processing Standards) each year they are getting higher with more security and encryption levels making them harder to break into and in some case even physically break at all. Currently there is 4 levels of FIPs and 5 is not too far away by the looks of things You can read up more on this HERE
The setup process is painless here which is great all you need is an app which is on Android and iOS power in the unit to your PC and then pair them up and away you go you have the options to command what needs doing after this. You will see how to in the video review. You also get DriveSecurity Antivirus powered by ESET – 1 Year License which is great..This does not require software which is an added bonus and file transfer is quick and fast and no lag or issues here..

Would I recommend? Well yes but first you will have people complain about the price but this is the norm today you pay for storage no matter what tech you buy just like smartphones but with all that is on offer here on top and how easy it is to use. This model costs €505 euro and goes up to €3500 depending on storage..
