3 out of 5 eggsOK(ayish) drive quality. Rebate system sucks

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive Quad Interface 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA / Firewire 400/800 3.5" External Hard Drive w/NTI SHADOW 4 Backup Software GD1000Q

Pros: Gives you 1TB of storage space
Thats about it

Cons: Build quality is very cheap. I wouldnt move this around too much.
Slow.
Greendrive wont acknowledge the rebate form (though another vendor I got the drive from did). Just dont expect any money from Greendrive.

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive Quad Interface 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA / Firewire 400/800 3.5" External Hard Drive w/NTI SHADOW 4 Backup Software GD1000Q

Pros: So far, so great. All interfaces seem to work, currently using Firewire800, with a Firewire 400 daisy-chained to it. It's pretty much noiseless when not in use. I like that it comes with ALL cables for various interfaces.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The company seems responsive, and there's a two-year warranty. A co-worker has had one of these for over a year and hasn't had issues. I'd consider this a pretty safe purchase.

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive Quad Interface 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA / Firewire 400/800 3.5" External Hard Drive w/NTI SHADOW 4 Backup Software GD1000Q

Pros: When its recognized it runs quiet and fast, no problems with over heating. Fast transfer rates.

Cons: Of the 3 computers ive hooked it up to, only one will even recognize its there. nothing in my computer, disk management, device manager, etc. pretty frustrating. Running vista32 on all 3 machines(i think, one was my buddies, so 2 of them at least heh) there seems to be no support around for this issue:(

Other Thoughts: if micronet would(could?) fix this recognizition error this drive would easily be a 5 so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drives

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive Quad Interface 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA / Firewire 400/800 3.5" External Hard Drive w/NTI SHADOW 4 Backup Software GD1000Q

Pros: I have 6 of those drives for > 1 year. Work fine, one or two a bit noisier & bit vibrating, but generally a great product. Good price, nice compact design, solidly built, 2 years warranty & good service. One of my drives broke (could be power spike). I shipped drive to FD on Saturday and receive new replacement next Friday.

Cons: none so far

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive Quad Interface 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA / Firewire 400/800 3.5" External Hard Drive w/NTI SHADOW 4 Backup Software GD1000Q

Pros: Quad Interface, Cables Included

1 out of 5 eggsAptly named, Certainly is a "Phantom"!

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive Quad Interface 1TB USB 2.0 / eSATA / Firewire 400/800 3.5" External Hard Drive w/NTI SHADOW 4 Backup Software GD1000Q

Pros: USB 2.0 works!!

Cons: Firewire 400/800 does nt work! Runs extremely hot .. almost 1st degree burn hot!

Other Thoughts: Straight Out of the Box. Set it up to as per instructed to my Mac Book Pro - Leopard 0.5 with Firewire 800 ... ran Disk Utility rebooted etc ... nothing! then setup with Firewire 400 ... nothing! ... then hooked it to my Wintel Vista32 box, Firewire 400 ... ran Windows Disk Management Utility checked BIOS, attached other firewire devices, swapped cables rebooted etc etc ... nothing! does not see it!

Tried USB 2.0 with both Mac and PC which works. Make your own judgment! ; /
