CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
In the world of flash drives, the Padlock is unique. While in most cases it is a regular, run-of-the-mill drive, the addition of the passcode feature is a welcome addition. Passcodes are easy to set, or you can just leave the drive unlocked until you feel the need for security. Speed is about average, not super fast or deadly slow, and on par with other flash drives of its capacity.
My only complaints are the easily lost cap and lack of clarification of the number keys. Other than that, I'm quite pleased with the Padlock. If Corsair remedied those two small problems, the Padlock would be a knockout punch.
If you're looking for a decent drive with strong security features, the Padlock is one drive you should take a hard look at.
