Would it be safe to say that Truecrypt would be far much better?
If you don't mind paying for the additional strength, particularly if you fall within nwrickert
's description of
"If you are a known keeper of valuable records, and a potential attack target, then better play it safe and go with 256 bits."
then yes, it would be safe to say Truecrypt would be far much better.
Otherwise the cost of the additional encryption strength isn't justified, IMO.
