4 out of 5 eggsSED technology: You need the right mobo

Pros: Am posting this because the Seagate description and the links listed fail to mention something critical. First, SED using hardware full disk encryption is extremely fast and very safe. Hardware FDE creates no performance loss, unlike Bitlocker or Truecrypt software options.

Cons: You need a motherboard BIOS that has an "ATA Password" option separate and in addition to the BIOS password option. The bad news: Most motherboard makers don't have this option, ASUS flatly doesn't offer it. Why? Because it's so secure that if the user forgets their password, no one, NO ONE can recover the data. Lenovo and HP laptops often have this feature, but if you're looking to use it in a desktop, better check your motherboard's BIOS. If ATA Password isn't an option, this disc encryption is non-implementable.

Other Thoughts: ASRock Extreme6 will provide an updated BIOS 1.70B that has ATA Password functionality. You have to email them for it, though.

5 out of 5 eggsI use Seagate exclusively

Pros: The best feature of Seagate Hard Drives is their dependability. I have used Seagate conventional hard drives, as well as their Hybrid Hard Drives. When I replace a hard drive, I always choose Seagate. Why? I've never been let down. My repairs have a very good record, and so I have no reason to use anything else.

Cons: The worst thing about Seagate Drives is: They're not free!
