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.

1 out of 5 eggsMalfunctioned and Unusable

Pros: At least the green light still works.

Cons: After two years of occasional use (once every few months), the drive malfunctioned and is no longer recognized as a valid drive by Windows OS. The drive hardware still works, as it powers on and hums, but it is totally unreadable. Micronet (the manufacturer) recommended I try to recover the data, admitting that the drive is unusable after 2 years of light use.

My attempts at data recovery have so far been unsuccessful because the drive is simply "unknown" to my OS.

Other Thoughts: Lost all my photos from the last 10 years. Don't trust this drive with anything valuable.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Love this External Drive, Ive been working it non-stop for the past few hours copying over tons of files via USB 2.0, and its just barely warm. I gave up on external HDDs a few years ago when one burnt up on me and I lost a ton of data. But i just bought a SSD and need to move over 100s of gigs of files to store for when I format everything and reinstall windows. But again so Far im loving it

Cons: The reason why I gave it 4/5 eggs was the exclusion of an esata cable. Yes yes I knew before I clicked "buy" that it didn't have one, but COME ON! how hard would it have been to include one? and jack up the price 5 bucks? it sucks to have to deal with USB 2.0, because im still waiting on my esata cable to arrive

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Drives

Pros: Runs cool, looks cool, automatically go into deep standby status during periods of inactivity, uses very little energy, extremely silent, seems fast enough to me.

Cons: This is really minor, but there is no apparent flickering light to tell if there is any HDD activity or any LED color change to indicate standby status...as far as I can tell. However, I'm partially color-deficient so it may just be me. Also, it takes a few seconds to wake from sleep, but this is to be expected given the "green" nature of these drives; the lack of minor inconvenience compared to the energy savings is well worth it.

Other Thoughts: I have had two of these drives hooked up to my Synology 209 NAS/Server for at least three years without any issues. One is used for Apple Time Machine backups and the other is used for movie archiving. They just work.
