    iTwin aims to enable secure access to your data in the office or at home with plug and play ease. The 99 US Dollar device does not require setup, nor does it have any capacity restrictions for the amount of data you may access. While other implementations are based on software or online storage scenarios, the iTwin is completely independent and may be used on any Windows based system.

    Extremely good idea. I would definitely like to see it expanded to you could buy more than one and set up a whole file repository network. It could definitely use a little polishing, but iTwin definitely has a winner on its hands.

    Clever idea, and good implementation!

    I don't see this lasting a long time though, those connections between them would come loose after a while.

    So when I go round someone's house to fix their rig, I would just need one of these, and make my whole "Apps and Drivers" folder on my rig accessible. Would save me having to copy certain apps onto a stick and risking forgetting something vital.
    I like it.

    Darksaber. You need to fix the review a little. pp2 and 3 only talk about "ends" when you mean sides, devices, etc. I think you were a bit tired when writing and forgot to proof read. :pimp: Otherwise, thanks, and interesting.

    For this product, TBH, I don't get it. Yes, a nice software package that brings everything together in an easy package of hardware and software.

    But couldnt this feature set be easily replicated with regular keysticks holding AES keys and encrypting software. And for remote access you could use something like PC Anywhere, Dameware Remote Control, or SynaMan. (If you dont know synaman, go here: http://web.synametrics.com/SynaMan.htm)

    I answered my own question. This product is great for "retail shelves", where my alternatives are a bit too "admin skills"-ish.
