There is no necessity to install any encryption software at home imho.
Only business machine have such requirements.

1. When you encrypt your hdd, if you do not have any recovery cd/thumbdrive to recover your data, all your effort will go to the drain.

2. Encryption software slow down the machine. Some you can feel the slow down is quite significant.

3. Many ppl I see set simple password as easy as 123456. Which totally defeat the purpose.

Some laptops like those Lenovo laptops have hdd password lock setup in the bios.
I would prefer this method

Lastly I'm curious why your need to set encryption on your devices ?
Are your devices for personal or business ?
