1 out of 5 eggsCrashed after one year

Pros: Small, sleek, and lightweight, even compared to other portable drives.

Cons: Crashed after one year.

Other Thoughts: At this point, I should know better than to buy cheap hard drives. Just spend the money on a LaCie drive. It's worth it for the peace of mind. (I am not a representative of LaCie in any way — I've just never had one of their harddrives crash on me)

5 out of 5 eggsFantom drives last for a long time.

Pros: -Slim and pretty cool looking
-Lightweight, no problems to carry this around
-Doesn't get hot, a bit warm at most

Cons: It's FAT32 formatted, took me around 5 hours to format to NTFS, but that's most probably because of my very old computer.

Other Thoughts: Fantom drives haven't let me down up to this day. I'm very confident that this one will last me a long time with the proper care. In fact I have a Fantom 500gb external drive (got it from Newegg too) and it's still going on strong after more than three years, unlike a lot of scary reviews I've read about external drives dying after a mere year. I also have a 1TB but it only has been around a year for that one.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Portable Drive

Pros: This is a very nice portable drive.

1. Design is great!
-Very Slim.
-Metal Body.
-Clear bright (but not obnoxious) blue power LED.
-Brushed Black Metal Body with Chrome Ends

2. Speeds seem decent
I did two file transfers from my 10k velociraptor to the drive to see what the speeds look like at first glance.
-1.4 GB folder with 9000 small files
-averaged about 10 Mb/s
-11 GB File
-averaged 40Mb/s

3. Didn't heat up or make any noise whatsoever at all during the above transfers.

4. Comes With a Case! (simple slip case with Velcro closure)

Cons: 1. Comes Pre-Formatted FAT32.
Only takes a second to format it as NTFS (Do it)
-if you don't know how... look it up.
-FAT32 doesn't allow files bigger than 4GB
-NTFS does

Other Thoughts: Looks Great... Works Great (So Far)...
I have three desktop external drives from FANTOM Drives and they have all worked perfectly without any problems so far.
This Portable Drive seems to have the same detailed construction as I came to love in the externals.

Five Eggs (Con isn't a big deal... its more of a preference)

Bottom Line:
If you want a 500GB portable external drive, get this one... Don't mess around with drives with plastic bodies... This one's built to last.
