Excellent performance, but limited life span in industrial environment,

This review is from: Apricorn Aegis Padlock Pro 500 GB USB 2.0 and eSATA 256-bit Encrypted Portable External Hard Drive A25-PLe256-500 (Black) (Personal Computers)
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.
