LACKS Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) feature
on April 26, 2016
That was the reason for me to order this drive -- "Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) option (AES-256) cuts IT drive retirement costs while securely protecting data where it lives-on the drive".
After installation of "sedutil" ((...)) it did not find any compatible drive, only a regular SATA-drive.
Further search shows that the Seagate ES.2 series offers SED but the model sold here (ST32000645NS) is one of the versions WHICH LACK SELF-ENCRYPTION FEATURE ((...) )
If you're okay with that, this drive can be a good choice -- I will return mine since it is not as advertised
