1 out of 5 eggsmax capacity 750gigs

Pros: Only wasted $5

Cons: I put my WD red 3tb drive into this case, it had data and was formatted for NTFS, this was going to be my backup drive.
I tried to insert the drive while drunk and could not get it to fit.
Later, I tried to insert the drive while sober and it was not a challenge, just a lot of grunting and groaning while I squeeze plastic against metal.
I plugged the drive into a pc running windows 7, and it said the drive would need to be formatted, and it said the drive was capacity of 746GB.
I tried another computer and it stated the same thing.

Other Thoughts: If you buy one of these, make sure the drive isn't over 750GB, you will not be able to access it.
If you previously put data on the drive, you will not be able to access it.
Now to try to crack it open.. wish me luck.

1 out of 5 eggsComplete Garbage

Pros: None

Cons: Product did not work. Unfortunately, I removed the UPC from the box for a rebate before testing the product, so I wasn't able to return it. This product is a complete waste of money.

Other Thoughts: Don't bother, even if it sounds like a good deal.

4 out of 5 eggsDon't know what the fuss is about.

Pros: Price
Encryption
Portable
Thorough Instructions

Cons: Plastic case
Screws for HD not included

Other Thoughts: I don't know what all the fuss is about. I bought one for $5.00. It sat in the drawer for a few months, and when I got it out, I found that the CD wasn't in the box. So I went to the Cavalry site, downloaded the encryption software, manuals, etc. Followed the setup directions to the letter. I had the drive encrypted, formatted, and running within 15 minutes. Backed up my 160 gb HD from my laptop to a 320 gb HD I had pulled from a Dell unit. I then installed the Cavalry software on another computer, and restored the backup on it with no data loss.

This is not an enclosure nor software designed so that you can use it to pull data off of a previously formatted drive. Although I did use iCare DRS to pull the RAW data off of a 500 gb drive with the Cavalry unit, it was a long (14 hours) process and not very good results.

I'm pretty happy with the results so far and think that the drive enclosure is well worth the $5.00 I paid for it.

Oh, yeah, all the complaints about the plastic tabs breaking. You can open the case with a very thin screwdriver by inserting it along the open edge at the tabs. I put a bit of whiteout on the case where the tabs were so I could find them. I've taken the case apart and put it back together several times with no breakage. Perhaps the manufacturer should have included that advice, but they didn't.

1 out of 5 eggsReally Hard to Put Drive in it

Pros: Cheap

Cons: I struggled to put my HDT722516DLA380 3.5" Hard Drive in there. The enclosure has a top opening only so you have to pop the hard drive in or something. I'm not sure if it's because my hard drive is too big or something but I couldn't make it fit. Since it doesn't have any openings on the side, it has a plastic frame all around, I was afraid I was going to break it before I was able to push the hard drive in.

Other Thoughts: I decided to return the item to Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap and Works

Pros: USB is slow, but it does the job.

Cons: The instructions that come with it suck.

Other Thoughts: I see all these comments about how it does not work. It does work. Look into your Disk Management and make a partition for the drive. This will wipe the drive clean and make it work like you would expect.

1 out of 5 eggsWrecked two drives

Pros: Looks nice... Cheap.

Cons: Was a bit of a pain to get the drive into the enclosure.

Got it in, hooked it up and it shows the whole capacity of a properly formatted and partitioned drive as unallocated. All attempts with several tools yielded no success in getting the partitions to show.

And as the final nail, it took 15 minutes, pliers and two screwdrivers to get the drive back out of the enclosure, and I hadn't closed the top yet.

Other Thoughts: DO. NOT. BUY. PERIOD.
One star because I can't give it 0.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: None

Disappointed with Newegg's standards.
A loyal customer with them for years. Would never imagine not only do they sell crapware and not care, but seem to hold their customers to the same standards.

So my point...
I needed a USB2.0 HDD Enclosure. Nothing fancy, just something to place an exciting HDD into for portability. Newegg offers such a enclosures, and look they have "Cavalry EN-CAUH-B". OK, so it's cheap, it doesn't have to solve the world or make apple pie, it just needs to allow me to read/write data to a previously used HDD. Newegg states that this enclosure supports up to 3Tb, great thats what I have to put in, and that it's plug & play. Which by my definition means, I connect a HDD, plug it into a computer and play (read/write data to/from HDD).

Cons: And here's the problem...
Got enclosure connected my 3Tb fully stuffed HDD up, plugged it in, and low and behold it's asking me to format it. Wooow! No! No! No! That's not plug and play. So I open disk management and it's saying my 3Tb HDD is only 750Gb. I'm not formatting, my 3Tb HDD is practically full. But that's alright, I have a spear HD, it's not as big, it's not what I got the enclosure for, but atlease it's not a waste of money.

Other Thoughts: Wrong...It cost more than its worth...
So I reconnected my 3Tb HDD straight back to my computer. Press Power, and its not showing up. So again to Disk Management, where it's asking to partition as MBR or GUID.. My though, in the words of the famous Doctor..who..What... I just, What... All that data, What... How the What.... WHAT

So I went back to Neweggs website to re-read the details, and nope I read it right, upto 3Tb, plug and play.
And then I notice in a picture, in the Image gallery, on the Box, a lock, and next to the box a disc. that seems to hold "Encryption Software". But I never got that disc, and I never encrypted my HDD. So then I did what I should of done in the first place, Read the feedbacks...
(But as I stated earlier it's just a plug & play enclosure, not Fort Knox. Which I guess would be good, if thats what you were told you were getting)
And there are a lot of negative feedbacks. So why don't Newegg do something... Read and Respond.
With all these negative feedbacks, your customers aren't happy. So pull the product = no more negative feedbacks. And I understand getting a few, but these are all poor feedbacks.

And what really make this crapware is the CD partition of the enclosure. It's a HDD not a flashdrive.
I wanted to be able to take my movies from PC to x360. But can't because the x360 only reads the first partition of the HDD, which lays the CD partition.

In Conclusion...
Newegg test your products, before you list it on your site with false details or not enough info.
And remove those with nothing but poor feedback. I shouldn't have to read feedback for good products, it's your job to sell good products.
And if you don't have any testers or not enough...I'm for hire... I'll also give reviews that your customers can trust.
