Fantom Drives’ GreenDrive USB 2.0 and eSATA disk drive is a great storage solution for protecting all your photos, music, videos, and documents in one safe, convenient place. It features the latest advances in power saving technology and RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) compliant materials and processes. The GreenDrive comes with a sturdy aluminum casing for maximum durability, fan-free design for silent operation, and can be placed horizontally or vertically to maximize your desktop space. The GD2000EUS also comes with NTI Shadow 4 Backup Software enabling you to back up your precious data online.
Pros: connected to Dell Studio XPS with eSata. Easy setup. I store my raw video files and like the speed and volume. Have tried it using the USB and speed is acecptable for backup and music but not for high usage. I have a fish tank in the room so can't attest to the noise.
Cons: none yet.

An excellent choice for downloaders
Pros: -Huge amount of space
Other Thoughts: It's a little longer than a lot of drives, but it doesn't affect me much, so I didn't list this as a con.

Pros: 2 TB, Aluminum Case, eSATA
Cons: No included eSATA cable
Other Thoughts: Had 2 of these drives for over 6 months now, and never had any problems with them. We also have 2 of Fantom's 1 TB external drives- they've been in use flawlessly for over a year. The drives used for backups to take off-site, so are not running all the time. For our use, they couldn't be better- fast, reliable and compact.

Pros: Seems to work well so far and if heat does not become an issue maybe it will be ok, I do have concerns because it is so small a fan may become necessary nearby or it will run hot.
Cons: Cheaply built and does not include necessary cables, so get ready to spend more if you desire to actually use it. The cable that comes with it is only inches long so it will have to be VERY close to your computer. No where can you expect to place this except exactly next to the computer so may it will have to be on top or on something next to your computer , not long enough to set next to your computer . I had to use a cable I just happened to have, but not esata so the benefit was lost.
Other Thoughts: This is the draw back buying on line if folks like Newegg do not accurrantly describe their products as was the case here. I did not buy an upgrade for my last upgrade because of the disclaimer that nothing should be expected to work together even when grouped topgether to sell. A slight of hand for a seller to advertices a product and then disclaim it was to be assumed to work together. I once never comsidered buying from anyone except Newegg but their new polocies have made me reluctant and this purchase bears out my reluctance. I am even less trusting of newegg after this purchase.
