Not for all but a cheaper solution than secure HDDs like the Data Locker & Lenovo's secure drive...

The Ezsave Lockdown is a 2.5" USB 3.0 / SATA III caddy with AES 256bit hardware encryption, a numeric PIN pad and OLED display.

Pair up with a 2.5" drive and you have a secure drive for around under £100 (Ideal for backups).
Pair up with an SSD and you have a secure, fast external drive (ideal for an external OS such as Linux or Windows-to-go).

Interesting device though.

just could use opensource and free trucrypt to encrypt on the fly .. you need to install in on your mac, linux or PC first but hey its bulletproof free and for 90% of situations all many people will need ;-)

incidently whats the "backup" scenario in "case" the case goes up the fritz and leaves you with an encrypted disk and no access to the data ?

Software encryption won't allow you to boot from a drive whereas hardware encryption will
Also, hardware encryption is host-agnostic so the drive can be read by all operating systems and hardware (PS3, WD Live, etc.)

Controller failure is a risk for any secure drive but I'm guessing that the manufacturer will be able to recover your data.
