    Re: G-Technololgy ArmorLock NVMe SSD (2TB)

    So am I understanding this correctly... in the location/situation (air gapped, secure data) a heavily secure external drive would be most useful it doesn't work because it needs an internet/wifi connection to unlock....

    Nope - read again carefully needs to be within bluetooth distance of phone, so if they confiscate phone you are jiggered

    So I am right but it's bluetooth and phone instead of internet/wifi.... which would be another thing that isn't on an air gapped secure data pc....

    But you also needs an internet/wifi connection if you want to add other users....

    Indeed - but that's not really who it's aimed at because there is NO data storage allowed into those kind of facilities that I know of

    I've been in some that only allow transfer between devices by secure hard drive, it's not military or anything like that but they want to keep things 'secret' until release so didn't have any sort of networking.

    It definitely isn't aimed at military sites as most will require you to either surrender your phone on check in (depending on site in question) or turn off GPS / switch off the phone while on site. Really does depend on the site though, as well as what goes on at said site. I'd see this drive purely for private sector company usage.

    The drive has an always-on 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) hardware-based encryption using the XTS block cipher mode. And because it's built into the controller silicon, taking the heavy load, G-Technology says there is minimal impact to performance, which we'll prove in the benchmark section.
    Seems like either the NVMe drive used in this is either quite slow already or the encryption overhead isn't actually that nominal when writing. in comparison a 250GB Samsung EVO Plus mated with a ROG Strix Arion on a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface manages 1055MB/s reads / 1017 MB/s for writes. That's a 7-8% difference, especially as a smaller drive should in theory be slightly slower.
