2 out of 5 eggsIt's a 'Green' Drive-Don't get tricked

Pros: Working 5 months later.

Their site says, “newest and fastest external disk drives available “.
The standard knowledge of a 'Green' drive is that it's a little slower for the power savings trade off.
I assumed this drive would run as fast as possible as opposed to their Green drives.
The drive inside is a Seagate ST2000DL003 5900 rpm Green drive!!!
If I wanted a Green drive, I would have purchased one that was advertised as Green!
I wanted performance, but they hide the fact that it's a fast interface, constrained by a slow drive.
Only 2 eggs because I feel like I was deceived Fantom!

Cons: 3' USB 3.0 cable is a little short to put the drive on the desktop unless the cpu is directly under it. Would 1 or 2' of wire really break them?

Transfer would be higher if they put a decent 7200 rpm drive in.
Had to get the drive elsewhere because of availablility-sorry Newegg.

Other Thoughts: I agree with the previous poster about rebate. Not on this unit, but another Fantom I had to get Fantom's help in getting the rebate. Eventually got it, but why does Fantom hire a 3rd party to deal with their customers who's only claim to fame is that they tick off their customers?

3 out of 5 eggsDont count on the rebate

Pros: quiet

Cons: they will try to trap you and reject your rebate submission. the website where I bought from does not show my comments, so I posted here and let people know what will happen.

Other Thoughts: I bought one in July since there is a $25 rebate. It is very quiet when it is running, and the speed, if it works as USB3.0, can reach 70MB/s transfer rate, but in most cases it cannot quit normally from my Ubuntu Linux desktop. this is very annoying. whoever sponsors the rebate really doesn't want to give you the rebate. They set up a strange address rule so that they can reject the submission. This is the only rebate I don't get back in the past ten years. Too shrewd to deal with
