    That's a pretty cool device. A little more than double the price of a normal 8GB stick, but the security options are worth it if you carry around a lot of sensitive data.

    But hardware based secured partition or privacy zone method is quite enough for this purpose(costs much less). And it is virtually inaccessible(only if you have a strong password however)
     
  5. Does it come with a lanyard/neckstrap?
