Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot really fault. Formatted for Mac went perfectly using Mountain Lion which has own encryption. I noticed a few Windows security applications on the drive, but could not test. This is a compact and decent looking USB3 drive, which connects through a single USB which was a bonus as my older one needs 2 USB which is all I have on my laptop. TIme will tell whether this was a good buy but with the warranty on this item it's a sign of the manufacturer's faith in their product quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased on a Friday payday deal plus voucher made this very good value for money. Branded Samsung, a very fast (USB3) 1T drive. Samsung Drive Manager software included on the drive allows easy backup, encryption, diagnostics and disk management. Well built with excellent performance. Only down side, the supplied USB cable uses what I can assume is Samsung's own style connector and it doesn't fit too well. For this reason I have knocked a star off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great device so far. Using Windows7 backup to 2 alternate discs. Does not allow incremental backup, but gives 2 recent recoverable discs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite as easy to use in terms of a password protected external HDD as Western Digital (WD) external HDDs. Next time I'll choose to buy a WD HDD instead
