It all is that simple and if your pin is incorrect, the Padlock 2 will secure itself. Should you have forgotten your PIN .. your data is gone as simple as that. you can reset the pin-code so you can use the device, however once you activate that process the data on the padlock will be destroyed automatically, which is a good thing security wise.
We are not going in-depth on performance. The Corsair Padlock 2 is not made for hefty file-transfers. Instead the performance is average at best. The padlock has overhead as it continuously needs to en- and decrypt AES 256 encryption, that overhead makes the drive slower then normal.
Still as you can see, these are fairly normal speeds to work with. Most of you content will probably be secured PDFs and documents. Peaks read speed was roughly 13 MB/sec and write speed just over 8MB/sec. And that's good enough for it's purpose.
