comment Samsung SSD 850 EVO. Best way to protect personal data against thiefs
I would definitely NOT recommend using the BIOS to set the password. I have personal experience with at least one BIOS which allows the user to enter a password, but then internally uses a different password to lock the drive! (this is so that users who forget their passwords can still be helped by the vendor) -- this is an old BIOS tradition, also with the previous ATA security. Using an open source tool like msed to setup the OPAL encryption is the most reliable, because you know exactly how your password is handled, and OPAL configured.
