 ThumbDrive Secure - Preamble
 Date  : Sept 26th, 2001
 Category  : Storage
 Manufacturer   : Trek 2000
 Author  : Jin-Wei Tioh
Over the last few years, removable storage devices have grown immensely popular. Among the widely known are solutions such as Iomega's Zip, Jaz, and PocketZip, the Castlewood Orb, and CDR/RW drives. This just goes o show one simple thing : we increasingly want our data to be available on the go. However, the products mentioned are of a more "conventional" design, ie. they use physical media which means that they are less rugged, being susceptible to shocks, magnetic fields, dust, dirt, scratches, spilt coffee, all threats in the real world. Moreover, these devices typically need a power source, data cable and the storage media itself to function. Beginning to change your mind about just how "portable" they are, eh?

Previously, we took a look at Trek Technology's non-secure ThumbDrive. Today, we examine the secure model, available in 8, 16, 32, 64 and 128MB capacities, with a 256MB model slated for release in Q1, 2002. The evaluation unit, a 8MB secure model, was kindly provided by Mr. Adam Tan of Trek Technology.
