Very good hardware, first-class Linux support, and will fit on the
internal USB ports of most 1U/2U servers and workstations (where it will
be safe from physical accidents during server maintenance, and far more
protected against tampering).

I'm one of their happy customers (and not otherwise affiliated with them
in any way).  Just like I am a happy customer of fastmail.fm :-)

That said, you should always use /dev/urandom unless you're generating
long-term keys, even if you add one or more entropy keys.  Otherwise, it
gets easier to DoS the service.
