This drive is a cheap piece of garbage. I backed up my hard drive once (in Nov 08) and then two weeks later (in Dec 08) tried to retrieve the information but the drive would not turn on!! I called Amazon and Cavalry. Amazon was past 30 days so no go. Cavalry said the drive was under warranty, but shipping costs and insurance (required) were at my expense and they would replace the drive rather than fix it. Poof - there goes my data with no chance of recovery!! I could not lose all my awesome pictures, music, files, etc. I asked an IT friend who said the power supply in the case probably quit. I bought a new case on Amazon ($30 - I highly recommend the Antec MX-100), opened up the Cavalry (which voids their warranty), and moved the hard drive into the Antec case. The whole process was super easy and intuitive and took only 5 minutes. Now it works great, the Antec black aluminum case looks sexy, and my data is perfect. My friend was right - Cavalry puts a nice drive into a garbage case which is why they sell at a price so low. Their warranty policy is worthless.

I am getting a second backup drive but buying it in separate pieces: a Western Digital hard drive (1TB green bulk drive - $108 on Amazon) and another Antec MX-100 case. This is so easy to put together and I will always have a backup for my backup.

I've purchased a couple of these and have been thrilled with the performance and value. Very easy to use, extremely quiet, no sound or vibration. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a good external hard drive.

Have had this item for more than a year. I use it to routinely backup my computer using an aftermarket application. I have never had, and continue not to have, any problems. I check the drive every so often (and of course, I keep a back up of the back up somewhere else, JUST IN CASE) The e-sata connection works super fast, so backups take little time. The design is nice--not like an "apple" design, but good none the less. And besides, it sits in a drawer of my desk, so who cares.

I am not sure why mine looks like this silver case with the black front but doesn't have CAXA on sticker.

That said except when I tried to use a damaged USB cable with it it has been exemplary.

At the time I bought it, it was the lowest cost 1 Terabyte drive on the market. Yes, it is a 2.0 USB drive. I am not certain but I think the USB 3.0 standard post dates when this was designed and manufactured.

Let me be clear here. This is an excellent external drive for backup storage. Don't count on it to be your main system drive. Its "too slow." That said, its not all that slow....
