“The Apricorn Aegis Padlock SSD (480GB) … is a rugged, compact external solid-state drive (SSD). It’s expensive, but you do get speed in a chassis built like a tank.

“…Compact and rugged, the Apricorn Aegis Padlock SSD is ready to keep your mission critical data safe, especially when you're on the road. It's speedy and easy to use, but a high price will be a deterrent for many consumers and some businesses."
