Nice drive...if only it worked reliably!

T Badd "T Badd", Amazon
8 February 2008
  • Summary: I too purchased this external drive due to the lure of it's large capacity and cheap price. I've been working in IT for the past 23 years, so I have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing. Figured there couldn't be much of a difference between the name brands and this Cavalry (probably uses drives from the same manufacturer). It's a nice size, has a great aluminum case and a pretty blue LED light on the front. BUT..

Too Many Cords, But Otherwise Okay

A. Qian, Amazon
8 February 2008
  • Summary: Other than the fact that this product requires a lot of cords (one from the outlet to the external, and another from the external to the computer) and the switch, this works fine. The hard drive is quick, quiet with the fan, and looks great. If it were a little lighter, that would be nice too, but hey, its 300 GB.

Overheats Rapidly and Stops Working

Randall Thorson, Amazon
2 February 2008
  • Summary: This product is a waste of money that stops working after a few hours as it overheats. I already own four external USB hard drives, but I was running out of hard drive space, so I shopped around on Amazon. At the time I bought it, this Cavalry hard drive was the least expensive 320GB external USB hard drive on Amazon. In this case, the adage that "You get what you pay for" was true: this cheap and shoddy hard drive failed within a few hours after I plugged it in.
