EEPC 6.2 with OPAL 1.0 2.5in SSD using only hardware encryption, where to find?

Since I did not get an answer to my question about the Crucial M500 OPAL 2.0 SSD, let me be more general.

I have been searching online for a 2.5in Solid State Drive that is OPAL 1.0 and I cannot find one that is still available for sale.

Is there any OPAL 1.0 SSD available now that can work with EEPC 6.2 using only the onboard hardware encryption?

lists all the drives we have tested in house - anything else would be considered unsupported, and may/may not work.

Ok, the table below is from the URL you provided.

There are no SSD drives shown and only one of those was still available to purchase (and that one was only available from one seller, probably old stock). I guess the priority is not to make this work with onboard hardware encryption, but just use the software based encryption.
