What You Get
After we cut our way through the hermetically sealed plastic container, we end up with the thumb drive, an extension USB cable, and a driver disk. The driver disk will only be needed if you are using Windows 98. All newer versions of Windows (including ME) will automatically recognize the device as an external storage media and load the proper drivers by default.
Taking a closer look at the device shows a rather squared looking module that has a removable covering to protect the USB tip. This can be extremely handy in the event it falls out of your pocket; and yes, this would be from someone who is talking from experience here.
As far as size is concerned, a quick viewing of the ruler shows the dimensions of the drive to be 66mm x 24mm x 10mm. For those who are metrically challenged, this works out to be about 2 5/8" x 1" x 3/8". So while it isn't the smallest drive on the market, it is easily small enough to fit almost anywhere with no problems.
Taking the cover from the drive shows a pretty common looking storage device. It is slim enough that it should fit into any front/side mounted USB port of your machine with no issues. Once you have finished, just put the cap back on and you're ready to go.
But what about the security features?
Ah, when you flip the drive over, you see a small metallic plate. This is a small scanning device that allows you to secure your data by means of a fingerprint. Simply put, you can lock access to the device unless someone has the proper fingerprint to scan or a proper password. Let's take a closer look at this concept, shall we?
