Summary: No warning. Didn't over heat. Wasn't damaged. It just stopped working after a year. I wasn't even able to access it with software designed to recover photos from crashed hard drives. I would not recommend this product.
Summary: I used this Calvary 80GB hard drive so i could backup my 60GB PS3 while i swapped its internal hard disk. Though i've only used it once for that specific purpose, it worked fine and is now kept in my closet as backup should my PS3 ever conk out.
Summary: I have owned this product close to six months now and the storage capacity meets my needs just fine. Easy to install and operate. I recommend it for use as an addition to any computer and for temporary files.
Summary: I have three of these drives. I've already filled up one and it's in storage. I'm onto the second one now. This is a great external hard drive for the money. I have not run into any problems so far. I had a Maxtor drive that crashed, and it's "supposed" to be better.

That was 3 months ago and then it crashed, over heated and flashed a red light then came on blue again but my laptop with Vista Home Premium would not...
Summary: Cavalry is one of those companies that you seem to see more - yet they are to small to be compared with the large drive manufactures. I own several external drives made by Cavalry and have yet to have any problems. This unit in particular runs quiet and does not put off to much heat.
