This item is a dud.
Roswell P Angier
Good speed and Great size, especially with built in encryption.

Also, the eSata connector is different than the USB connector.

I love the Apricorn padlock drive, I have two; one 'regular' 640 and one 'pro' 640.
Both perform with acceptable speeds for an encrypting device.

However, I have never gotten the eSata interface to work reliably. I would be interested to read comments to the contrary. Anyway, here is what I mean by 'unreliable':
* device is recognize just fine.
* device transfers files to-and-fro
* BUT, when I hash the file on the source and destination, they are different. This doesn't happen when using the USB interface. During this test, I transfer ~100GB files.
* this was done on a different machines, with different eSata interfaces, with the same results
* this was done with a different eSata external drive (actually a KingWin ezDock), with success

I can only conclude that the eSata capability is defective in some way. It would be nice because it transfers (albeit with errors) at about twice the speed of USB. But, at least the USB is reliable...

BTW, for those having trouble with getting the eSata to work at all, I use WinXP 32-bit, and I have to plug it in before booting up, with the auxilliary power cord, and have to shut the computer down before removal. I.e. not hot-swapable. Also, I enter my password during the bootup process before it gets to the OS loading. Maybe this helps someone.

Also, for those having trouble 'safely removing' (from USB), make sure that there are no locks on the drive, i.e. no open files or even directories (e.g. no explorer windows, or command prompts). Then you can safely remove. Well, you may have to try more than once to wait for caching to finish writing, but it will happen (this happens even on other drives/thumbdrives). If you don't have the 'safely remove' icon in your tray, you can use
%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll
to bring up a similar but more detailed UI for removing.

I only have the device for about two weeks.
Although the device appears to be a bit slow, it does a decent job.
I have couple issues with it though.
1 - I have not been able to make it work on the eSata port. It is not recognized at all.
2 - So far, I have NOT been able to eject it gracefully from Windows. Any time I try, I get device busy. I actually have to pull the plug (USB cable). This makes me uncomfortable since the data can be lost. And, when dealing with encrypted data things can get complicated.
3 - The device appears to be a bit slow. I can live with this as long as my data is protected and accessible.

Style Name: Solid State DriveSize Name: 256 GB Verified Purchase
I ordered and paid for the eSata version of the Apricorn Aegis Padlock Pro (solid state) but received the USB version instead. I ran tests of the drive and the write speed was only 17 MB/S. The average rated speed (see the brochure) is 161 MB/s for the eSata version. After some correspondence with Amazon and the vendor, they realized I had the wrong device. I returned it and decided to read the reviews thoroughly. Based on the data integrity problems noted in one review when using the eSata interface, I'm concerned about ordering it again. I'd appreciate any feedback about the data integrity (positive or negative) from other users. By the way, one other user said he received data speeds of 10-12 MB/S for the eSata drive and thought that was good. You should expect an order of magnitude greater transfer speeds with the eSata solid state drive (as noted above, an average write speed of 161 MB/S). Also, the eSata connector is different than the USB connector. I didn't realize that but this is the first indication that you have the wrong drive. If it looks just like a USB connector and isn't labeled eSata, then you got the wrong drive too.

Style Name: Hard driveSize Name: 500 GB Verified Purchase
These drives work great. Using hardware encryption is soooo much better than goofy software. We have several of these drives that were made bootable for servicing PCs and we have no problem at all. They only seem to last around 18 months in our daily-use always-being-carried-around environment. That's just the cost of doing business for us. We keep buying them since they work so well. They should last longer for home use. DON'T BUY THE OTHER MODEL WITH INTEGRATED CABLE... Their other model has a USB cable built-in that can't be removed. We had a lot of problems with those not being recognized by some PCs at boot. Additionally, the cable is really short and you have to use a goofy extension cable.

We use encrypted, external backup drives for many years. The Aegis Padlock Pro is an outstanding drive, easy to use and reliable. Among the many Padlock drives we purchased we had a single one with a case issues. Apricorn has excellent customer service (you talk to a real person)and we got a replacement within two days.

Style Name: Hard driveSize Name: 750 GB (256-bit) Verified Purchase
PRO: The Aegis Padlock Pro is a great device for storing large amounts of secure data. The keypad makes it easy to unlock the drive. My computer doesn't have an eSATA connection. However, the USB 2.0 transfers data at a reasonable speed. I moved over 150GB of files from another external drive to this one in only a few minutes.

CON: The drive worked great for a few weeks. Then I accidentally knocked it off the table where it was sitting next to my laptop. The drive never hit the floor because the USB cable caught it. However, it would no longer work. Aegis support offered to replace it. However, I had some very sensitive data on it and could not possibly send it back to them. So, I had to destroy it.
