Engadget Summary

Lenovo's ThinkPad USB 3.0 Secure Hard Drive provides an unlikely combination of security, portability, speed, and simplicity, with full AES 256-bit encryption, a built-in keypad for password entry, and USB 3.0 for data transfer. You'll pay more for this drive than for other portable hard drives; a 750GB version goes for $199. But you won't have to worry about anyone getting into your files if you lose it. Just be sure to remember your passcode; enter the wrong one too often, and you'll have to go through a reset process — or even end up with a dead hard drive.
