5 out of 5 eggsA solid drive - good USB transfer rate

Pros: This has behaved well for me for the several months that I've had it. I used to to off-load large data sets from my PC whose hard drives are nearly full.
I was surprised when I copied about 60 GB of pictures etc. onto it via USB 2.0; I started the copy (Windows drag-and-drop) and walked away, expecting it take take all evening, but it completed in just a few minutes.

Cons: Sometimes when I'd go to access the data on the drive, it would take a few seconds to spin up; it's a minor annoyance, to be expected from a power-efficient "green" hard drive.

Other Thoughts: It comes with a vertical stand, reducing it's physical footprint. I've not used the eSata interface yet, since I'm getting good performance using USB, but I plan to.

1 out of 5 eggsAfter 1 to 2 years it dies

Pros: Great when it works

Cons: After 1 to 2 years any fantom drives product will die . We have owned 3-6 of these. All of them die within 1 to 2 years. I suspect due to heat and being fanless.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of my best drives so far

Pros: I've had this drive since October 30th 2011, and so far it has been working with no problems. It's the 1-2 year mark when drives supposedly start dropping like flies, so I'm being extra careful to not have them unnecessarily plugged; I will update this review when there are any changes.

Cons: None so far. I'm quite satisfied with how long this drive has held.

Other Thoughts: I've also got a 2TB Fantom GreenDrive, so I'm hoping it lasts longer than this one, since nowadays 1TB is not enough to keep up with my files, which keeps adding up since I take videos and pictures for work reference and such. Hopefully the 2TB will stand the pass of time, but if you don't need more than 1TB this is a solid option.

2 out of 5 eggstorturous noise

Pros: it is a functioning HD

Cons: makes a constant noise that is similar to noise torture. reeet reeeet reeet reeet reeet

When I first got the drive it would only make the noise after it had been on for a significant period of time. Now it does it all the time. I would suggest going with another brand that doesn't have complaints like this one.

Other Thoughts: I want to get it fixed, but hardware companies are notorious for not caring...I simply will buy another brand before this one fails.

1 out of 5 eggsNOISEY JUNK !!

Pros: Design and exterior build.

Cons: I wrote Fantom about the sreeching noise it makes as if the needle is scratching a record.
They said I have to mail it back and then maybe they will do something- or I may owe money.
It's a faulty product! I expect consumer coverage for their issue. DON"T BUY FROM FANTOM
**Should be a switch for the annoying blue light (at night when sleeping)

5 out of 5 eggs5 years strong

Pros: Bought this in 2008, and it is still spinning like an mc at an all night dance party. It is on nearly 24/7. Never had heat issues, whether propped up in the stand or laying flat. Manageable footprint either way. No complaints about read/write speed, quiet as can be.

Cons: I'd have to struggle to think of any. Maybe, the external power supply is a little on the bulky side.

Other Thoughts: Takes a few seconds to spin up and access after its been idle for a while, but I knew that's what I'd get from a "green" drive. Once I tried to take it apart and stick another hard drive in there, however the connector was some strange thing I didn't have an adapter for and I couldn't identify.

5 out of 5 eggsStill ticking

Pros: I purchased this device in 2009. Here it is, 2013, and it's still humming along just fine (unlike many external HDs I've owned over the years). I have it attached to a MacMini that I use as a media center. Access speed is fine. No complaints about the noise.

Cons: I suppose the only con I can think of is that it can run pretty warm when under heavy use.
