Corsair Padlock 2Apr 4th, 2010 | By Simon
While Corsair shipped the Padlock 2 to me in a simple cardboard box, the retail package is only a clamshell package prominently displaying the Padlock 2 in all its glory.
A few key features are visible on the front of the package but clearly the intent is for you to be drawn towards the drive itself and the PINs used to secure the data. Flipping the package onto the back, Corsair has printed a short blurb about the Padlock 2 in six different languages and lists the included items in the package (USB extension cable and lanyard).
A small leaflet is included to direct users on how to lock and unlock the drive. Below we can see everything included in the Padlock 2 retail package.
The drive has a lot of resemblance to the Voyager family with the rubber casing. There are 6 little buttons on one face: five to select your pin and a sixth to enter the sequence to unlock the drive. Three LEDs on this face also provide indication on drive activity and whether or not the drive is unlocked or locked.
If you’re a perfectionist and want everything to mate smoothly, one thing to keep in mind is that the rubber cap is offset to one side and won’t line up smoothly if you have it rotated the wrong way. It’s really not an issue but something I thought I’d point out. It would have made sense to me for Corsair to make the case symmetrical.
Minor details aside, the body of the Padlock 2 is nothing special. It will fit in any regular USB slot but adjoining ones may be blocked due to the slightly larger size.
