You did a lot of looking-around! I too found nothing more than the claim that when you activate the security software it establishes a password and hardware encryption. The word "hardware" is encouraging to me, but they fail to explain why I should be impressed. I kept wondering what exactly does the hardware encrypt. And what would someone see if they managed to access the platter with a platter directly.

But assuming the encryption is great, the Aegis is not vulnerable to keystroke loggers, well, unless the logger happens to visual recording device that watches me push the buttons. But the scenario I'm worried about is theft of the drive and subsequent attempts to break in. And with the Aegis, ten wrong guesses and the system locks (assuming it is set to 10). I think it can be set as low as four.
