Failed after 14 Months 9/18/2012 1:27:17 PM

Pros: Price. eSata port

Cons: eSata port rarely worked, slow transfer speeds, 1 year warranty, loses partition tables easily making data unreadable and unrecoverable for a non-technical user.

Overall Review: I bought this drive b/c of the price & eSata port. I found out that the eSata port rarely works so I was forced to use the USB port which is painfully slow for backing data. I mainly used it to backup my clients files when repairing their computers. After about 14 months it lost the partition tables which rendered the data unreadable to an individual who does not know how to (or have the money to purchase software to read data off a failed drive). Considering I had very important files this is a disaster. I was lucky enough to get some of the files off of it. Today I went to get the remaining files off & when I plugged it in it started to maed the clicking of death & other strange noises. The operating system doesn't recognize the drive in disk management. I am now out of my money for this drive & have lost some very important files. Many users are complaining the drive fails after 14 months aka 2 months past the warranty. I would suggest another drive even if it costs more

Failing 15 month later 12/30/2011 6:07:43 AM

Pros: Low price lots of space

Cons: Failing less than 2 yrs old, used as a back up with limited hours of use in past 15 months.

Overall Review: I found it interesting there was a manufacturer response to another review which claims the product was released in November of 2010, but my invoice is for May 2010.

Was not worth the cost and frustration of getting all the data onto the drive and now having to find a new back up storage option.

Nice HDD 8/22/2011 8:37:25 AM

Pros: Worked well out of the box using eSATA on a 2008 Mac Pro with a Highpoint card. Used Truecrypt to encrypt the entire drive, which took several hours, and it's running like a champ. Rebate made it all very affordable.

Cons: Only 1TB. eSATA not hot-swappable (causes a kernel panic).

Overall Review: I would definitely buy another Cavalry product for any future external storage needs.

Do not buy this 8/10/2011 7:55:24 AM

Pros: Big HD little price

Cons: Original HD stopped working after a few DAYS. Spent the money to send it back to cavalry. And now the replacement has stopped working afetr a couple months. Not sure if it's worth sending in AGAIN.

Lousy product & product support 7/18/2011 10:30:56 AM

Pros: cheap price

Cons: Well after 2.5 yrs it finally bit the dust. I was able to read but not write so I got my data off it. I'm not sure how long you should expect a HD to last. This was used for backups and most of time it was off and stored in the closet. Probably had less than 50hrs operating time. Of course an RMA from Calvary was denied.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Sir or Madam,

The CAXH was introduced in November of 2010 and as such has not been on the market for 2 years, let alone 1 year. We do offer warranty replacements for qualifying products which have been purchased within 1 year's time. As a result, all CAXH units are currently under warranty.

You must have mistakenly left this review for a different product. Please contact Cavalry Support if you are in fact the owner of a faulty CAXH; we would be more than happy to provide warranty service to any and all CAXH customers as of 8/15/2011!

Not Bad, Good Price 5/31/2011 8:32:10 PM

Pros: Affordable, USB and ESata =D. Been working good for quite some time.

Cons: For some reason, it will randomly disconnect while I am transfering folders over. Had 200Gb folder and halfway through it disconnected even though the cables were connected.... Maybe its going bad?? Idk. Red light would appear when it happened. I just turned it off and then turned it back on. Seems to work. For now...

Overall Review: Great price at the time, still love this thing
