Keypad-secured thumbdrive for the extremely cautious

I recently reviewed the Lenovo Thinkpad, a keypad-secured USB 250GB external HDD, and judged it excellent. Would I say the same for this little secure thumbdrive? Well, it depends what you need it for. It might be a good idea to have a regular “backup backup” of your most sensitive and important information onto a little thing like this that you keep in a drawer. The combination part looks a little weird, but I’ve never understood those two-numbers-one-button things anyway.

£60, or about $90-100, is quite a lot to pay for this sort of security, so I guess it’s a good thing they’re out of stock. Plus, you have to order them at least six at a time. Honestly, though, if I ran a business where I dealt with serious financial data, confidential reports and so on, I’d have my employees use these things.
