  I'd pick the Lexar over the SanDisk also because it has 256 bit AES encryption vs 128 bit on the SanDisk.

All other things being equal, sure go with the 256-bit encryption.
But for all practical purposes 128-bit and 256-bit are equally secure.
If anything, 256-bit is worse because it is typically about 40% more computational work than 128-bit AES.
That may or may not make a difference in read/write speeds.

FWIW, my expectation is that the encryption implementation on both is likely to be flawed in one way or another so as to make them both
crackable by someone with enough motivation. Reports of bugs are common. For example, western digital drives: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2995539/storage-drives/western-di...
