Too big

808state, Amazon

  • Summary: Bigger than it looked online, but it does it's job fine. Would not really consider it portable unless you don't mind carrying a brick around with you. It's pretty heavy.

Died after 3 months.

  • Summary: Just died after 3 or 4 months. I only needed it for a video project. Luckily I had finished it submitted it to my class before it broke down. It really unfortunate though because I lost my project files and I really wanted to edit it some more. I would not recommend this to anyone.

Great drive, crappy usb port

J. Dryden, Amazon
9 December 2009
  • Summary: I've had this thing for over a year, and it works...but only if the usb cord is pulled just so. Apparently the usb port on the hard drive is crooked, so you have to shove a splint in between the power and the usb to even get the computer to recognize it. It was a good price, but only because of the cheap connections, I guess. I would definitely pay a little more for the more expensive brand.

13 Months Then DEAD

David G. Pelowitz "Dave", Amazon
3 August 2009
  • Summary: If you plan to use the drive as a backup, DON'T. It has been running fine for about a year now and then all of a sudden it started having problems... When turned on it would show up (USB) for an instant then go away and would repeat this for possibly 5 minutes. Eventually it would calm down and either be available or not until I power cycled it and the whole thing would start over again. The point of this is at under a hundred bucks you get what you pay for.

Useful

Patty, Amazon
19 June 2009
  • Summary: I've been using this for over a year on my old pc and now my new one. On the old Dell 8400 it was not automatically recognized - Had to manually select it via Disk Management but I think that was because the pc was old as I don't have to do that with the new one. It's quiet and so far I have not had any problems with it at all.

Do not buy this drive!!!

Lars A. Selen, Amazon
18 June 2009
  • Summary: Do not buy this drive and beware of any Cavalry drive. Mine crashed after warranty was up and Bason Computer will not even repair it for a charge. In a way they do you a favor, the selection of brand for your replacement drive becomes easier.
