2 out of 5 eggsno smartctl support

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive3 2TB USB 3.0 Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GD2000U3

Pros: n/a - dead on arrival. (if it had smartctl support and wasn't DoA, the pricing on this drive would have been awesome)

Cons: This drive has no smartmontools support, and the very first drive I have ever owned which did not have support for it. In my case, it was already obviously dying as I got it because bad sectors kept corrupting the filesystem, but if it wasn't already showing obvious symptoms I would have no way of using S.M.A.R.T. to find out it was about to die.

Other Thoughts: I suppose it is possible the fact it was defective is why smartctl didn't work, but I find it unlikely it would have bad sectors AND a bad board.

4 out of 5 eggsCertainly a heavy bugger

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive3 2TB USB 3.0 Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GD2000U3

Pros: 1. I've heard they are reliable. I presume that more massive translates into reliability, so perhaps it is true! It is one heavy bugger!
2. Certainly easy to use, just plug and play.
3. It works and no one will want to walk away with it!

Cons: 1. Not particularly quiet, although the sound doesn't stand out.
2. I expected USB 3.0 transfer rates. Perhaps reading/writing to the 64MB cache will get you that speed. However, Green perhaps == 5200 RPM, so you are still essentially at USB 2.0 data rates.

Other Thoughts: If it is still working after 3+ years, it will be a good investment. The last thing you want is to lose your data.
