While the 4K results are comparatively impressive, the sequential and 512K reads are capped by the USB 2.0 spec, bumping against the spec's 480Mbps limitation. It almost holds its own against Corsair's speedy Voyager GT as well, with sequential writes being its only real downfall.

If you want an added bit of security and will only be using Windows machines, the DataTraveler Locker isn't a bad choice. Still, for max portability and speed, we'd be suggesting a non-secure USB 3.0 drive along with something like TrueCrypt.
