A good product that falls short of greatness.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The iTwin may look like a Flash drive, but it's actually a networking tool designed to let you set up a secure connection between two computers over the internet, so that you can, for example, exchange files between your desktop and laptop. Yes, you can do the same thing for free with Dropbox, Google Drive, Windows Live Mesh, or a VPN. But iTwin is designed to be simple, secure, and private, and includes built-in safeguards that allow you to disable a lost unit. If you're comfortable using a cloud-based service like Dropbox, or configuring Live Mesh or a VPN to share files among multiple machines, you probably don't need iTwin. But you probably know someone who does.
