Thank you for providing the answer that everyone knows to be true.

You need to contact the marketing department and have them drop the "Encryption: AES 256-bit Encryption" claim, as shown here:

...because the answer is that the drive isn't encrypting anything, but relying on third party software encryption, the drive does not have "Encryption: AES 256-bit Encryption".

This would be analogous to a car company advertising a car as "self driving". Yet, when you ask how the car drives itself, the car company says, "well, it is self driving if there is a driver in the car driving it. So long as our car has a driver in it driving the car, it is self driving."

While it may not support TCG Opal, there is apparently encryption between the controller and NAND.

I personally don't know the full details, but I'm still trying to get more information on it as well.
