A night light with 500 Gigs
by Gary on 11/4/2008
Purchased this drive when rebate was available - a nice deal, these 500 GB drives have become the sweet spot of pricing for mass storage. I own several USB external drives, Lacies, Western Digital, Fantoms - this one is as easy as any to set up, preformatted in NTTS, quick and quiet - quieter than I expected from a budget priced Cavalry drive. My Lacie Drives are as quiet as this one and have lasted 3 years so far. I can'r speak for this one yet but if it performs as well I'll be very happy. The one quirk is the Cavalry logo on the front faceplate, which is rather large, lights up brightly when the drive is on. I don't know who they're advertising to - I already bought the drive. Turn the other lights off in the room and enjoy the blue glow and added storage.
