Safe and stealthy bitcoin wallet, plus soon a password manager,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Trezor bitcoin wallet, Black (Personal Computers)
This is an excellent wallet that keeps your coin safer than software wallets, or - god forbid - trusting an exchange with your fortune. It was easier to use than I anticipated: firmware and software installed easily (even on Linux), and you operate it through your PC (I thought you had to enter your PIN and passphrase on the tiny thing, but the two buttons on it are only for Yes/No decisions).
My favorite feature is that it can have hidden wallets which are encrypted with a passphrase. This way, you can have a decoy wallet with a low balance on it, and keep the stash away from anyone that asks, say, at customs. Speaking of stealth, I'm glad this device looks a little cheap, as if it was an AC remote or something, and not like it has nuclear codes on it like the Ledger Nano.
As a neat surprise value, the maker also has a password manager in the works (currently in Beta), which looks promising, and again, should be more secure than using a software-only solution.

This review is from: Trezor bitcoin wallet, Black (Personal Computers)I have this and the Nano S by Ledger. Honestly it does not matter what cold device you use, just get your keys offline period. Please new users understand this; cold storage and soft(hot) storage of any kind of does not store your bitcoin. Cold storage is meant to store your private keys to your bitcoins offline. Bitcoins or any other cypto currency remains in the virtual space. No one can gain access to them unless they have knowledge of your private keys. Most online soft(hot) storage, phone apps, pc's are continuously connected. You have more of a risk of exposing your keys. The more your keys are at risk being online, the more chances a hacker has. I don't care if the app on any device that says your key are safe, a hacker is a hacker and they will get to it.
Even if you connect the cold device to a computer or phone to access, your keys are still blocked from being seen. A confirmation request is made on the device, and yet your keys are hidden. It's a no... Read more

My preferred crypto wallet after trying them all. Be aware of the limited crypto coin support and do your research,

This review is from: Trezor Grey bitcoin hardware wallet compatible with bitcoin, dash, zcash, ethereum (Electronics)
This should be the first thing you buy when you reach $100 in BTC. Solid unit. The web wallet leaves a lot to be desired, but functions perfectly with Electrum, including the mobile executable. It does have a somewhat limited coin selection that it works with, so pay attention to that before you purchase. It works with about 75% of my crypto portfolio, and they roll out new coins somewhat often. Record your seed words, practice restoring with your seed words, and keep them in a safe place!!! 100% open source and peer vetted.
