Not A Bad Drive, But, Be Warned
This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive 4TB USB 2.0 / eSATA External Hard Drive GD4000EU
Pros: Beautiful drive, just as rock-solid as any of the other "Fantom" external drives. Lots of interface options, (USB or eSATA). Simple and cleanly designed, with only one indicator light. Power switch (always a plus). Case is built to last, and protect the hard drive inside. No fan design, will always stay quiet, but may get "warm", not hot though.
Cons: Drive came complete, but all documentation on the site did not prepare the purchaser with a minor flaw. The drive requires your system, hardware, and operating system, to understand a GPT format. If any of those things dont know this, the drive is just a 2 TB HD! Inside package documentation mentions this requirement, but nothing was said before purchase and ownership. Be warned!
Other Thoughts: Would have been nice to know the GPT format requirement before buying it. As it stands, I have owned other 4 TB externals, and no problems. I got this drive, and Wham! I just bought an EXTREMELY expensive 2 TB HD. As the drive was sold by a "partner" of Newegg, and not directly from Newegg, I know have to deal with their partner to get a return / refund. Be Warned!
