4 out of 5 eggsSolid choice

This review is from: Fantom Drives Gforce/3 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" USB 3.0 External Hard Drive GF3B1000U Black

Pros: Reliable and fast, attractive and easy setup. Stand is a plus. Blue light is cool.

Cons: Goes to sleep and can't find a way to control it.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive for my workstation at work. I use it to backup certain files from my computer including some virtual machines that I run. I use it on a USB 3.0 connection and am pleased with the speed. I have a 500GB SSD in the computer and wanted to keep some of my "bloat" files off of it - so when I download software or images from the internet, I put these files on the Fantom Drive. I also have my dropbox folder on this drive.

I've found that using this drive for the backups and occasional storage is great, but to use it as a working drive for day-to-day files is not so hot as the drive goes to sleep every 10 minutes. I use windows 7 on a Lenovo desktop and have gone through the power management and USB settings and followed lots of online articles and advice, but I think the drive does not honor the OS settings and uses some internal setting.

5 out of 5 eggsFantom Drive Works Seamlessly

This review is from: Fantom Drives Gforce/3 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" USB 3.0 External Hard Drive GF3B1000U Black

Pros: Easy to set up, speedy and efficient.

Cons: None really. At first a slight vibration sound on the desk, but was due to misaligned hard drive holder clip. With some realignment- the drive is quiet and efficient.

5 out of 5 eggsDose what we need

This review is from: Fantom Drives Gforce/3 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" USB 3.0 External Hard Drive GF3B1000U Black

Pros: Large cap, small profile, durable case, ascetically pleasing, and most importantly it is IN FACT server 2003 compatible and that makes me a very happy administrator!

Cons: none at the moment will edit if something comes up!

Other Thoughts: We bought two of these for our back ups to replace our old 300gb drives and the space was welcomed with open arms!

5 out of 5 eggsgreat so far

This review is from: Fantom Drives Gforce/3 1TB USB 3.0 3.5" USB 3.0 External Hard Drive GF3B1000U Black

Pros: this external is very fast! i works for both usb 2.0 and 3.0. when it is hooked up to 3.0 it is incredible. i store a ton of information on hardrives (have 4 already) and i wanted to transfer about 900GB to the external. it took only 1 1/2 hours to move it all! it is not the best thing to move info that fast but i just wanted to see how well this thing can do.
if this thing does not die out soon i will keep it at 5 eggs.
price was also great!

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: 5 eggs unless it dies withen 2 years
