5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid External HDD

This review is from: Fantom Drives Gforce/3 4TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive – GF3B4000U

Pros: USB3
3.5" drives always feel more stable to me
Great Price

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have an old Fantom 500GB drive that still works. I have recommended this drive's 2TB version to a family member and that one still works. And i have the 4TB version and that still works. It is just a rock solid unit. Love Fantom drives.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat when they work

This review is from: Fantom Drives Gforce/3 4TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive – GF3B4000U

Pros: On/Off Switch--No bloatware to turn on. No backup automation that I neither need nor want. No backup button.

Cons: 50% failure rate so far--3 out of 6

Other Thoughts: This was to be my 4th Fantom hard drive. Of the other 3, one arrived DOA and was replaced. Newegg took FOREVER to pack and ship this one, then after 3-4 days, it developed problems. RMA'd it, the replacement was DOA. Waiting for a refund. Of the 6 Fantom drives I've possessed, 3 were bad, either DOA or wonky within a week. When they work, they're great. The trick seems to be getting one that makes it through the first week.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

This review is from: Fantom Drives Gforce/3 4TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive – GF3B4000U

Pros: BIG. Those 4 TB will help my backups
Its finish looks pretty awesome

Cons: - Whoever assembled the drive hit it twice. Two of its corners are deformed, which is very unexpected on an expensive new item.
- It hums. It's the loudest component I own. Also when it's being used sounds quite a lot.
- The plastic base doesn't match the rest of the aluminium case drive.
- Its blue light is too bright

Other Thoughts: Nice concept, but it needs love. A bit of sound isolation, less aggressive front light, better base and be CAREFUL to assemble the drive would make it a must have. You expect that when you are paying $100 more than on a WD one.
