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.
Adlink Technology ASD25
This product was the first to arrive in our lab and we pounded it every way we could in order to break the encryption, but to no avail. The Adlink product performed in the middle of the pack when it came to our performance tests. The product costs $428 (£275) for a 256GB drive, 248GB when formatted.
