2 out of 5 eggsBad first impression

Pros: Drive was cheap. Shipped fast. Came with lots of cables.

Cons: Poor documentation. The users manual basically says to contact Cavalry tech support if you want to change anything (like RAID configuration). What is the point of the manual?

I plugged the drive in through Firewire400 and it mounted immediately (pre-formatted for Mac, I used my MacBook). I mounted another drive drive using a USB2 dock (from Cavalry as well) to copy data over to the new RAID. I had about 700GB worth of data, so I let CarbonCopyCloner transfer the files overnight.

I woke up this morning and the 'HDD2 Error' light is on. UPS guy dropped this drive off less than 24 hours ago and it already is failing: not a good sign.

I will work with it today to see if I can fix it by formatting it, but the documentation is so poor that I might just send it back.

Other Thoughts: I should have researched more before my purchase. This unit has had poor reviews in other capacities (according to other NewEgg users). I will NOT be submitting my mail in rebate for this drive because I don't trust that it will work through the warranty period.
