5 out of 5 eggsGreat but finicky eSATA

Pros: Price, speed, value = all top marks. The only issue I've had is that when hooked up eSata, it doesn't recognize the drive sometimes. USB it always recognizes. Don't think this is a cable issue as the same cable works just fine sometimes. But not really interested in spending hours with many different cables doing tests.

Didn't ding an egg for it however as again, it may not be the drive's fault

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very easy installation. I plugged it into my Windows 7 64-bit machine and it showed up. File copy speed is incredibly fast. Connected via a PCIe eSata card (as my new motherboard does not have eSata, only USB 3.0) I was seeing transfer speeds as high as 90 MBs, which is twice what I was getting on a USB 3.0 drive. The Fantom drive looks good in its slick black metal enclosure.

Cons: Occasionally the drive is noisy. The enclosure feels very warm after use (although that probably means the enclosure is acting as a heat sink for the drive, which is good).

Other Thoughts: My older eSata drive died, so I tried two different USB 3.0 drives from Seagate and Western Digital. Neither worked with the onboard USB 3.0 connectors (they kept disappearing from my list of drives) on an MSI 870A-G54 motherboard. I finally gave up and bought this drive and I could not be happier. I am not sure if my USB 3.0 connectors are flaky or if there was something wrong with those drives, but for me eSata wins out over USB 3.0.

5 out of 5 eggsDirecTV

Pros: Quick ship and accurate product description. Great price from NewEgg!

Cons: Should have come with an eSATA cable... The included USB cable will find a quick use - as garbage.

Other Thoughts: Has anyone used this drive in a DirecTV HR24 to expand the recording capacity? I can't seem to get it to be recognized. Unplug HR24, plug in eSATAs, power drive, plug in HR24 and nada.
