For Me It's solid.

Pros: This is a very sturdy drive, I've been using this drive for over a year now, with it being left on for 24 hours constantly, and it hasn't let me down yet. It's portable and easy to manage. I've noticed quite a few low ratings and I guess many people just got a bad drive but for me it's been great.

Cons: I see the LED bright light as being slightly a nuisance but I've gotten used to it, and I just placed the drive in a direction facing the wall so it doesn't shine in my face constantly.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's been a great buy for me and I would recommend it to a friend. Most people can just deal with the light so that's not really a big issue.

Fantastic drive.

Pros: Had this guy for over a year now and never had a single hiccup. The only time it will lag is from inactivity but thats standard or else it would be a pile of melted plastic

Cons: The LED is very bright, i keep it behind my monitor

Un Reliable

Pros: Looks nice. The blue light is cool :)
Quite except for the beeping of the unit and clicking of the HD telling me its dead............

Cons: Had this drive for 10 months and was actually turned on for less than 2 hours. I rebuilt two computers and backed up all my important data to this drive. Reloaded it to the wife's computer fine, shes happy at least. The unit started beeping when I attempted top reload to my computer. Well all my stuff is gone. They should have a sticker on the outside that says"Back this drive up to another manufactures drive if you value your data"
That part was my fault but I would expect a external drive to last longer than two hours. Tech support from Branson computers (Calvary) was fine in providing me with a RMA. They wont replace the whole drive. They will only replace the part that is bad, in my case probably the hd. I'm sure with a used HD. Then they will charge me the price of a new drive to send me back the broken drive so I can do a data recovery(if they cant get it). They will then refund the money when I send them the drive back. Too much hassel for a 75 dollar un-reliable drive.

Manufacturer Response:
We are sorry to hear that your drive died after so little usage. Unfortunately, external hard drives are delicate devices. They do occasionally fail earlier than usual. For this reason we recommend that all of our customers backup their valuable data in more than one location. This is true regardless of the manufacturer. Data Recovery can be an expensive process. Thankfully our 1 and 2 TB drives are usually under a 2-3 year manufacturer warranty. This is useful for our customers. But, it means that we need to charge a holding fee for any defective units on loan for data recovery; as they are still under warranty with the Manufacturer. We make it a point to provide prompt refunds as soon as the defective drives are returned to us. Please contact us if you have any suggestions or comments on how we can improve our service for you.

Dead HDD

Pros: It was quiet until the clicking sound of death arrived.

Cons: Should have tested it for longer since most electronics will die in the first month or never, but I got anxious and dumped 300GB of movies and pictures on it after only 2 weeks, then came the sound of death. As this was to be my backup drive, goodbye data, I'll miss you.

Dr MrKinish, We’re sorry to hear about so much data loss. We would like the opportunity to replace your malfunctioning hardware. We strongly believe that RAID is the only reliable solution for long-term data storage against one drive failure. RAID ensures that your data is automatically stored on more than 1 location. Please contact us and let us know if there is anything we can do to remedy this situation.

Dead After 16 months

Pros: Worked great for 16 months.

Cons: After 16 months the drive died. The warranty is only 1 year so I am out of luck. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! Too many of these drives are dying.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Mohamoud, We are troubled to hear that your drive failed after only 16 mos. External hard drives are exposed to many environmental factors that internal drives are not. Please contact us and let us know your story. We always work with customer to find the most cost-effective solution, even after the warranty. Our support will always be there, even if the warranty has expired. Also, please keep in mind that there may be a longer manufacturer’s warranty for the drive inside. You can still have a functioning unit with very little cost associated. Please contact us because we would like the opportunity to work with you on finding a resolution to your drive-issue.

If using for a HD-DVR....

Pros: Purchased for external storage device for my Directv HD-DVR. Was easy to install. Quiet drive.

Cons: Some internal error within the Calvary caused it to be erased each and every time that power was lost to the HD-DVR. So if there was a power outage of any kind when the DVR would start up again it would read an error within the unit and wipe it clean. Very aggravating.

Other Thoughts: If you need to use the E-sata cable for Hd-Dvr hookup, go buy a new cable just in case.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer, The behavior you describe cannot be caused by the drive or the logic board it is attached to. That is because neither of those parts have the capability of erasing and formatting a disk. The only thing capable of doing that is the OS of the computer the drive is attached to. In this case that means the DVR unit. Your problem may be due to a firmware issue on your DVR unit. Please contact the manufacturers of that DVR and alert them on the issue you are having. Chances are that you will continue seeing this problem in the future. Please feel free to contact us with your questions and concerns as well.
