Encrypted SSDs deliver security and speed

Solid state replacement drives can protect laptop data in case of lost or stolen device

Article comments

We tested five different 2.5”, SATA-3 replacement drives and found that we could not crack their encryption. We also found that the drives delivered speeds that were up to five times faster than the Hitachi hard drive that came with our Lenovo laptop.

The OWC Pro 6G was the fastest SSD in our test. This no-frills drive came with no additional software, cables or data sheet. The drive we tested cost $1,040 (£669) and, once formatted, provided 460GB of storage. There's also a 240GB model that costs $448 (£288).
