3 out of 5 eggs2 out of 3

Pros: Quiet and functional for the most part. Bought three of these. 2 of them work fine. 1 had a bad eSATA port or something.

Cons: So one of these puppies caused my server to reboot continuously. It took me a while to figure out what the problem was because I also purchased 2 eSATA controllers at the same time. Figured it out when I booted to FreeDOS and noticed a strange error about "Illegal partition".

So I turned one on and left the other two off, rebooted, and did not get the error. Therefore I kept doing this process until the third one popped the error. (I also switched the cabling just to be sure. Definitely the drive.)

Since I really needed eSATA for backups and that faulty drive wasn't going to do it for me, I turned it into a personal use drive on my workstation using USB. It came up fine and is working .. on USB.

Other Thoughts: I've purchased 5 or so Fantom drives within the past. 3 of them worked fully. 1 didn't work at all. (Don't ever buy a GREEN drive from ANY vendor. They all fail.) 1 has a faulty eSATA port.

I have about a 60% success rate with Fantom. Would I buy another one? Probably.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic drive, but sometimes noisey.

Pros: Stable/Solid
Good transfer rate
Everyday use is perfect

Cons: Sometimes noisy
High temperatures at continuous use

Other Thoughts: Sometimes it gets a bit noisy if doing a high use activity such as movie editing or computer restoration. General use is not nearly as bad. The only major problem is when the drive is used for extended periods of time it gets fairly high in temperature. Has yet to overheat to the point of problems, but I still have an external fan on the device when using it for a larger project.

Everyday use works perfectly, which is the reason for the 4 egg rating.
