Apricorn Aegis Padlock SSD (2022) Review
Apricorn’s Aegis Padlock SSD isn’t new, but the concept is proven. We reviewed an earlier version in 2014, though that drive cost $799 (in a 480GB capacity) versus $299 for today’s same-size model. The tiny, rugged external solid-state drive hasn’t gone unchanged, however: Improvements to the ultra-secure SSD include a wider range of capacities (now, from 240GB for $209 to 4TB for $1,199), higher speed, and additional features, as well as that lower cost per gigabyte. These enhancements serve to keep a venerable security-centric drive competitive.
