The Toshiba Encrypted USB Flash Drive includes the following specifications:

  • Available Capacities: 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB
  • Storage interface: USB 2.0
  • Transfer Rate: Up to 27MB per second read. Up to 24MB per second write
  • (IP)57 certification for Water and Dust Resistance
  • Size: 3″ (L) X .78″ (W) X 0.41″ (H)
  • Colour: Black
  • Weight: .88 oz
  • Environmental: RoHS Compliant
  • OS compatibility: Windows 7 or newer, MacOS X 10.6 or newer, Linux and other embedded systems
  • Supports Admin and User independent PINs
  • 3 Year Limited Warranty

The on-board encryption will cost you, though: the 32GB model is priced at $200.
