    Apricorn expanded its Aegis Padlock series of secure portable hard drives with two 750 GB models, one with 128-bit AES and the other with 256-bit AES encryption for a very high grade of data security. Measuring 19 x 84.5 x 120 mm, these drives have a keypad that lets users key in an alpha-numeric PIN. The drive also "self-destructs" (destroys the encryption key and permanently locks the data), when it senses a brute-force attack to gain access to sensitive data. The drive has an 8 MB cache, and uses USB 2.0 interface with a retractable cable. Backed by a three-year warranty, the Aegis Padlock 750 GB with 128-bit AES is priced at US $179, and with 256-bit AES at $199.

    C4 and a trigger would be much better. The thieves will learn their lesson if they lose their hands :)

    It'd be a lot harder to take the HDD on planes when you travel then...

    If you only travel by car then this is mandatory:

    Cool concept, will all come down to the execution, if quality is cheap it seems pointless.

    So basically all you'd have to do to screw someone over is bruteforce the thing. Byebye data!
