I'm going to reinstall my system (Ubuntu) on a Samsung 840 pro SSD. This disk can do AES hardware encryption. I wonder what would be the drawbacks and/or advantages of taking this approach versus using LVM full disk encryption from different perspectives:
- security: are these methods equivalent in term of security?
- convinience: I'd like to avoid typing to many passwords
- recovery/compatibility: what if I have to take the disk and mount it in another computer to recover my data ?
