The Aegis Padlock DT Is A Secure External Hard Drive!

It is almost surprising how very much product diversity there can be in a simple piece of computer hardware.  Take, for example, external hard drives.  External hard drives all do the same thing; they store your data.  But, there are a multitude of different variations based upon your individual data storage needs.  If you need space, there are now 1 TB external hard drives.  For those who need speed, there are USB 3.0 external hard drives and for those who need long-term storage, there are solid-state drives that appear to last indefinitely.  One of the most intriguing combinations of security and speed comes in the Aegis Padlock DT.

The Aegis Padlock DT, model number ADT-3PL256-3000 in the Apricorn catalogue, is designed to be one of the most secure data storage devices on the market.  In addition to security, the Aegis Padlock DT has incredible storage capacity and utilizes the latest standards allowing for some of the fastest data transfers possible.  The ADT-3PL256-3000 is a 3 TB external hard drive and that level of data storage is still one of the frontrunners in the tech sector.  3 TB of data storage is more than enough space for most people’s entire digital library, which makes the Aegis Padlock DT a great investment for storing one’s growing digital media collection.

Security is the key selling point with the Aegis Padlock DT.  The external hard drive has an uncommon look; the 4 ½” by 7 ¼” top of the Aegis Padlock DT is dominated by a keypad.  The keypad is where you must input your unique PIN in order to gain access to the contents of the drive.  While the Aegis Padlock DT easily connects to any computer using a USB port, the contents of the drive remain encrypted until the correct PIN is entered.  The Aegis Padlock DT is compatible with all operating systems from Windows to Mac to Linux, but all systems are dependent upon the drive being unlocked in order to read the contents.  With 256-bit military grade hardware encryption, your data is entirely secure in the Aegis Padlock DT.

The Aegis Padlock DT also has speed on its side.  Utilizing a USB 3.0 interface, the Aegis Padlock DT has very fast data transfer speeds.  When connected to a USB 3.0 device, the Aegis Padlock DT may consistently transfer data at a rate of 5 Gbps.  With an 8 MB buffer and a disc speed of 7200 RPMs, the Aegis Padlock DT makes saving to the disc and getting information from the disc a fast, hassle-free process.

With its aluminum heat-dissipating enclosure, the Aegis Padlock DT is designed not to overheat, which means your data is not at risk from simple hardware failure.  Apricorn designed the Aegis Padlock DT to be fast, secure, and have great capacity and it remains one of the best portable hard drives on the market today!
