"BlackArmor?s glitches"3.0 starson by kevinnash23
Pros: USB 3, good transfer speeds, no need to spend for additional accessories
Cons: Password protection absent, no Firewire, no eSATA
Summary: The Seagate BlackArmor comes with the USB 3 advantage and the transfer speeds are good. I could transfer my 50 GB files in less than 9 minutes; earlier it took me 16 mins to do the same. All the cables necessary for it to function properly, the USB 3 PC card adapter and the software as well are included in the package. I did not have to spend money on buying additional accessories for it. But it does not have a hardware encryption. The earlier version did have this feature. Can?t understand why Seagate decided to do away with it. It does not offer the password protection facility either. The installation process is not simple either. There is no Firewire or eSATA interface but the USB 3 makes up for it. Users who are particularly looking for the eSATA or Firewire should not opt for this.
