If properly built, the encrypted HDD will store the 256 bit key, and the pass-code hash will be held by the hardware, which should have anti-tamper controls akin to a Trusted Platform Module. Even if it doesn't have them, you'll still need to understand the electronics, which should still be a challenge for most hackers. Perhaps someone from Satechi could put our minds at rest? see less

Answer:
I'm using a standard HD which is plenty fast enough, silent and reliable but my guess it would work since the SATA connection is there...(apologies, for the fence-sitting).

Answer:
Ours runs off the USB cable attached to a laptop PC's USB 3 socket. Make sure the internal hard drive doesn't need more current than USB 3 can handle but since that's (up to) 900mA you should be fairly safe. A USB 2 socket may be lower but ours has worked in those too without problems.

You ask 'will entering wrong password delete data on hd?
Personally I would not wish it to have that feature, as this would not represent data security (it would be easy for a 'vandal' to erase your drive). I am not aware that it does. Taking a look at the manual it says 'LOCKDOWN supports User Password protection feature. If user enter wrong password 3 times in a row, the interval to ask password input is lengthened continuously.'
I've not made the mistake of entering the password incorrectly multiple times so cannot comment on the length of the delay. see less
