eSATA cable worked great!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Apricorn Aegis Padlock Pro 250 GB USB 2.0 and eSATA 256-bit Encrypted Portable External Hard Drive A25-PLe256-250 (Black) (Personal Computers)
I had read the eSATA cable may or may not work, so I halfway didnt expect it to work and planned on sending it back. But I'll say mine worked great. Just one eSATA cable (no external powersource) and I was hitting write speeds of 10-15MB/s. I think thats even higher than advertised. I moved 40GB worth of music and pics in no time, and drive was really quiet and only got a little bit warm after about 1 hour of straight use. I'm not sure if age or software has to do with non-functioning eSATA transfers but my Dell studio laptop was purchased Nov 2009, has a dedicated eSATA port and Windows 7. Some computers may require a second USB connection (included in box) for power, but mine did not.
Also the security key pad is simple to use works great. Basically everytime you plug in the device it will not be recognized until the code is punched in. So you know as long as you unplug it no one can access your files (well without some hacking!).
I whole heartedly recommend this product.
