The BlackArmor 160GB encrypted portable drive provides a unique twist on a rather common item. Portable hard drives are everywhere, and in general are easy ways for people to lose valuable personal or business data. Security is the key feature of this product, and if protecting your portable data is a high priority, Maxtor has made it just about fool proof. With hardware-based full disk encryption your data is locked up tightly as soon as the USB cable is disconnected, and only your personal password is going to set it free again.
Given the robust security features, useful software, and the five year warranty, the Maxtor BlackArmor 160GB encrypted portable drive earns the Bigbruin.com "Recommended" and "Great Idea" awards.
