Ease of Use

Worked great until the third day. Then it would sometimes work and not. After two weeks it is now it totally dead. Not a good buy at all, espcially when buying it for a business that depends on the backups and doesn't have time to wait for slow customer service.

This is my second ext HD for my DVR Scientific Atlanta SA8300HD. SA8300HD's Diagnostic Mode shows the inside HD is Western Digital Caviar GP WD10EACS 1TB SATA drive. It came with eSATA/SATA cable you need. Just plug the eSATA end to the Cavalry and SATA end to cable box (SA8300HD). Turn on Cavalry first then SA8300. You will be asked to format the HD. Then reboot SA8300HD. It working well as previously noted in this reviews. It run very quiet and only slightly warmer than my Apricorn which has fan inside. My other HD is Apricorn case with WD5000KSRTL (500GB)HD installed on 12/10/2006 and running 7/24 since without any problem. Now it run out of the room.

I'm Now a Cavalry Fan

This is a great and easy drive. The enclosure is pretty slim and quiet. It comes with the external SATA bridge so if you have a SATA connection on the inside of your computer, you will be able to hook this drive up to it externally. Comes pre-formatted with NTFS which saves Windows users a couple hours. I've been using it for 3 weeks now and it does what its meant for well. I'll lean towards cavalry products from now on because of the quality of this.
