    Which is irrelevant really. Nobody is trying to get your purchase approval here.

    The technology of on-board encryption, regardless of manufacturer is a great addition.

    I've never had a Hitachi drive fail, but I have had 3 of 5 Western Digital drives fail. Why do you think Hitachi's are "crap"?

    I have. But mostly those crap Hitachi DVD drives that came in the PS2, XBOX1, XBOX 360 and other consoles. I mod them and Hitachi was the worst you could get. Disc read errors like crazy after minimum use.

    I know you're not. I'll just wait for other manufacturers implement this.

    That's interesting. I even have an old IBM drive that still works (although it's retired). I'm not sure if comparing DVD drives to hard drives is warranted, though.

    I feel you. That company name just strikes a nerve.
