There is another portable external hard drive hitting the market. The iStorage diskGenie stands out from all – a dual-layer protection mechanism with AES 256-bit hardware encryption and ATM style PIN code security system must be used every time the drive is accessed. Secure or annoying? It depends what you have to protect. But it is perfect for when the security and the privacy of your information is a priority.
Available only in the UK, there are 3 storage capacity sizes of the iStorage diskGenie; 250GB, 320GB and 500GB of storage, with a price tag of $184, $225 and $280 respectively. Don’t fret, in the USA a very similar product from Apricorn called the Aegis Padlock Secure Hard Drive sells for $159.00 for a 500GB.
