1 out of 5 eggsQuick shipping. Pretty. DOA

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

Pros: Quick shipping. DOA.

Cons: DOA. Will not connect to any of my computers, not recognized by and Windows 10 computer, I am not sure about any prior operating systems since I have upgraded all to Win 10.

It powers up (blue light) it spins up but nada.

Other Thoughts: I give Newegg five stars for fulfillment, I give Fantom 0 stars for product.

5 out of 5 eggsPERFECT CHOICE

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

Pros: -item is solid and well made quality
-item is very nice looking & with front Fantom LED
-item has ON/OFF switch so you don't have to just unplug to turn off
-item is very fast and I've noticed up to 4GBp/S speeds!
-item is very quite and silent
-easy for anybody to figure out to secure your data!

Cons: -found nothing to actually improve with this drive

Other Thoughts: I realized when I purchased a Fantom Drive for the first time that I could expect something great to securely back up my data without using an online cloud. This drive actually sleeps until called upon through your computer to save power, and not a constant use of the drive inside. You can see this by watching the LED come on when transfers are working.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid External HDD

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

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 Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GF3B4000U Black

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 Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GF3B4000U Black

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.
