DashForceNews

An easy-to-use and powerful hardware wallet that has a learning cure for Dash users

from DashForceNews
Dash users seeking to ensure that their funds are absolutely protected will look to cold storage options, and hardware wallets are the perfect ironclad storage method paired with maximum usability. The Ledger Nano S is one of the prominent hardware wallets that features Dash support. With its small design resembling a USB stick, the Nano S is nonetheless quite useful and powerful as a storage tool... Full review

A good, cheap alternative to Trezor

from Infinite Power Solutions
The Ledger Nano S can store Bitcoins, Ethereum, and other altcoins. Like the Ledger Blue, it emphasizes strong security features and secure digital payments. It doesn’t have Bluetooth, but it connects to your devices using USB. Instead of a touchscreen, the wallet features a secure OLED display that lets you double-check and confirm each transaction just by tapping on the side buttons... Full review

Affordable and easy to use

from 99 Bitcoins
The Ledger Nano S seems to have the upper hand in design and usability, while TREZOR’s reputation has more impact in the community (although not by much). Since most of us are price sensitive in this case the price tag tips the scale towards Ledger. Personally, I use a TREZOR, mainly because when I first started using hardware wallets Ledger wasn’t around yet. Today I think I may start using both, storing some of my funds on a TREZOR and some on a Ledger. I have to say that the progress Ledger has made in the past year is truly impressive, and there product shows it... Full review

One of the cheapest multi-signature hardware wallet

from MyCryptoMark
The fact that the Newest Hardware from Ledger includes additional security measures, such as the ability to visually confirm the correct receiving address on the device’s display, finally catching up to their rival Trezer who’s model is based on that key selling point, a built screen which the previous Ledger’s Hardware Wallet could not compete with...

An affordable hardware wallet

from The Merkle
This moderately priced Cryptocurrency hardware wallet offers robust protect of your digital assets. It is secure, usable, and is great quality for the money spent. I wish that it supported more altcoins than it does currently, but as the UI and wallet is open-source any coin dev team that would want their coin added could flesh that out themselves. Overall, I enjoy this wallet and would suggest it to friends and colleagues who were more serious about protecting their Bitcoin and Altcoins...

Consistent updates, easy setup, and support for multiple cryptocurrencies

from ReviewNetwork
The Ledger Nano S is a great first time Bitcoin hardware wallet. While some parts of the device might feel a bit cheap or a little tedious (like putting in the passcode with two buttons), the security used with the free chrome app as well as support for various cryptocurrencies besides Bitcoin with support for use as a two-factor device as well make the Ledger Nano S very attractive for under $70...

Secures digital payments and extremely affordable

Ledger Nano S is all good things that come in a small package. It can be setup without being plugged into a computer which means no one can see your IP address. With its great features, security, and privacy it makes it a must buy product... Full review

Allows you to securely hold and spend bitcoin

from The Tin Hat
Would I recommend the Ledger Nano S? Yes. In fact, I’d suggest that if you fit within the same perspective as I had (that is as someone who long held bitcoin using cumbersome security practices and yet still never quite felt secure), and if you have at least one bitcoin, then I’d urge you to buy one immediately. The Nano S is secure (so I hear), incredibly easy to use (while still remaining functional), supports multiple apps (with more coming), can be used as a U2F authenticator (which is $25CAD on its own), and, most importantly, just makes life with bitcoin better...

Ledger may have caught up to Trezor with Nano S

from Bitcoin Magazine
While Ledger has taken a massive step forward with the Nano S, there is still room to improve. One feature that some would like to see added to the Nano S, and which is already included in the Trezor, is multi-passphrase encryption... Full review
Steemit

Best hardware wallet

from Steemit

After setting up Nano S, it took me as little as 2 mins to familiar myself with the Ethereum wallet and start pulling my ETH from Poloniex. A lot of work and care had gone into this to make this a really user-friendly experience but mostly important of all the security measures and fail-safes will give you the ultimate peace of mind of safely controlling your private keys, while offering the ease-of-use that allow you focus on other things. With the new screen Nano S had placed Ledger on the same level as Trezor. The added bonus of Ethereum support and the better designed UI made this... Full review
