I'm looking at upgrading to either a Samsung 850 Pro 1 TB or a Sandisk Extreme 960 GB I've been leaning towards the Sandisk Extreme, but I read it doesn't support SSD hardware encryption. I've never used this feature in the past, but thinking maybe I should look towards hard drive encryption. I do like how both these drives come with a 10 year warranty which is pretty awesome compared to other warranties. This will be used in my desktop so reliability is always important and performance is a plus. I've thinking of going the encryption route mainly because I do finances on this rig and do some day trading. Of course the casual gaming and web browsing. If the hard drive is encrypted, does this mean anybody trying to remote in or steal files will get essentially nothing since the data is encrypted and they don't have the keys to decrypt. I know very little in this area so I plan to do a bunch of reading about this in the next few days. I know Sandisk has an X300 that offers encryption also, but it performs worse than Samsung from what I've read.
