3.0 out of 5 stars pricorn Aegis Padlock Pro 640 GB USB 2.0 and eSATA 256-bit Encrypted Portable External Hard Drive A25-PLe256-640 (Black), October 15, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Apricorn Aegis Padlock Pro 640 GB USB 2.0 and eSATA 256-bit Encrypted Portable External Hard Drive A25-PLe256-640 (Black) (Personal Computers)
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.

Doug Stevens says:
The reason that the eject utility says the drive is busy likely is because a security application has locked access to it so it can scan the drive. It can be quite a while before the app that has locked access turns it loose. This is not due to the drive itself.
