I have been using these through our company for the last 18 months.  However, I am not aware of a similar NAS device if you are looking for a network device.

Great, exactly the kind of devices I was searching for!

USB is perfect!

Questions:
- is the PIN of free lenght?
- is it read directly by the device? when? what do you do when you want to access to the disk?
- it doesn't require you to install any sw on your PC, right?

Hi Lucavilla,

Answers:
- is the PIN of free lenght?
........The PIN can be up to 16 characters.

- is it read directly by the device? when? what do you do when you want to access to the disk?
........It is embedded hardware encryption, so it is read directly by the device when it is plugged in to the USB port on a computer.  The PC does not know that the device is there until the PIN is entered and therefore unlocked.

- it doesn't require you to install any sw on your PC, right?
.......No software. Or I wouldn't have bought it either. :)

Good luck!
