Not quite as discribed, but acceptable1/4/2011
Very good hard drive, reasonably fast, but only has 16 MB cache per manufacturer. That is why I gave a 3 for overall satisfaction, probably just a typo. I am using on ESATA connection, USB 2.0 would be too slow for full back ups.If I was to buy again I would buy the one with ESATA cable and adapter for desktop slot, later I found it and it was less expensive and included the cable.
Great for DirecTV DVR12/10/2010
I used this as a external for my DVR and now I get 400 hours of HD Programming storage space. Make sure you get a esata cord to connect it to the back of the system and it'll make your DVR into a monster.
Superb drive at a good price11/14/2010
I have two of these Cavalry 2TB USB/eSATA drives, and they perform superbly in frequent, daily operation. Virtually silent, they have a rock-solid look and feel that says 'quality'. No setup - just plug in the included USB cable or an optional eSATA cable and go.
It's OK now9/13/2010
Speed over USB is very slow, it will take 30 hours just to format it. You need to buy eSATA cable (extra $15). It's 3 times faster over eSATA (450Mbit/s write). However eSATA connector is too deep, I had to cut some plastic off of the eSATA cable in order to make it work.
