Data Storage, Data Backup and Storage Virtualization IronKey USB Flash Drives Prove Their Mettl
For those who are price sensitive, the D200 series uses MLC flash memory, while the S200 series uses SLC flash memory to provide faster performance and longer data life. Both series share the same physical characteristics. The S200 is priced at $79 for a 1GB model, $199 for 8GBs and $299 for 16GB. The D200 is priced at $99 for a 4GB model, $129 for 8GB and $299 for 32GB. The management service costs $24 per user per year.
The IronKey drives are extraordinarily solidly constructed of flash memory embedded in military-grade epoxy wrapped in a single piece aluminum casing. To put it concisely, I beat the hell out of these things. I blame IronKey for encouraging me by sending me seven test units. I felt like I should just keep finding new ways to torture them.
