3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet running. Reliable so far.

Cons: Runs hot on big backup jobs. Had to move away from my workstation to a cooler place to keep it from over heating. Also don't like that it goes into hybernation several times a day causing latency in system while the drive warms up again. Would have preferred some way to set hybernation periods not during the work day.

Other Thoughts: Looking now for replacement that doesn't hybernate.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy To Have Had This One!

Pros: Kicks on and off as it is needed. Quiet enough.

Cons: Runs a little hot sometimes.

Other Thoughts: I have this unit hooked up to my iMac and have used it with Time Machine to back-up my 1 TB hard drive (92% full).

I have watched this unit go on and off for 8 months and then the Internal Segate hard drive on the iMac blew! Apple replaced the Segate, but the "Fantom Drive" replaced my data. Whew!!!

The unit's not a year old yet. I hope it lasts longer than the Segate!!

Thanks to Newegg for great products and service!

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent drive with few issues

Pros: Power switch is a plus for me
Power light doubles as access indicator
Wake up time is relatively short
Wide selection of interfaces
Comes with all the cords you need
Overall, very nice to look at

Cons: While defragmenting, it's noisy and vibrates
It's extremely hot after extended use!

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive for a while now and I am very pleased with the overall performance and look. I've had a drive that's supposed to automatically turn on when the computer comes on but it stays on all the time so I have to unplug it. At the time of this review I was defragmenting the drive and it became so hot i could not grasp it for more than 3 seconds from the blistering heat. I shut it down right away in fear that it would melt. Other than that, the drive is very fast, efficient and extremely compatible.

5 out of 5 eggsGreenDrive

Pros: Complete 2TB,
Comes with cables,
quiet,
fast

Cons: I haven't run into any yet

Other Thoughts: The other review complains of noise, and when I first fired it up I thought I had that problem. As it turned out, the drive is silent but vibrates which,when set down, caused other items on my desk to vibrate and make noise. I'm wondering if that was the other person's problem.

A huge plus was that the drive actually came with the USB, FW 400, FW 800, and eSATA cables included! Also, maybe this is a thing of the past, but some drives used to have less space than advertised when you plugged them in. I was happy to see the full 2TB free space there.

2 out of 5 eggsTiny, Fast, Pretty, Quiet and Fan Free?

Pros: It's soooo tiny!
Slick design.
SUPER fast! 182 Gb's in around 2 hrs via firewire 400.
Comes with all the accessory cables you could ever need!

Cons: My drive is noisy. Is it broken cause it sounds like a coffee percolator, and I swear {At the risk of calling the manufacturer a liar} I swear I hear a fan.

Other Thoughts: I may be picky but when I buy something that says it going to be quiet and fan free, I expect that.

Just returned it. Not to happy about getting a restocking fee on a product that does not deliver on what is say it does.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your feedback. All of our single hard drive units are fan free. Some noise is normal with hard disks, however if the sound is truly distracting there may be something wrong with the drive. We wish you would have allowed us the opportunity to assist you in this matter.
