5 out of 5 eggsGood External So Far

This review is from: Fantom Drives G-Force3 Pro 3TB USB 3.0 Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GF3B3000UP Black

Pros: Good storage to price ratio (paid $90 total).
Good transfer speed and I only have USB 2.0

Cons: Blue light is kind of annoying, especially if I have glasses on instead of contacts (makes a weird reflection).

Other Thoughts: I would easily buy again at the $90 price point.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this drive

This review is from: Fantom Drives G-Force3 Pro 3TB USB 3.0 Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GF3B3000UP Black

Pros: This is drive is great. I had an older Fantom that I bought in 2008 so I decided to buy another Fantom when I needed to upgrade. I use the drive for backups on a Mac. It's really fast and really quiet. It's also solidly built. I couldn't be happier. The price on New Egg was great too, which is why I bought it here.

Cons: The only con is that the drive's blue light is very bright. I watch movies (Netflix) on my computer, usually with all the lights in my apartment off. I noticed, in the darkened room, that the blue light was distracting when I was watching a movie on my monitor. But I just put something in front of the light and that solved the problem.

Other Thoughts: I did some research on drives before buying this one, and I think this drive is really the best deal for the money.

5 out of 5 eggsLove these drives

This review is from: Fantom Drives G-Force3 Pro 3TB USB 3.0 Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GF3B3000UP Black

Pros: These are swift backup drives running at 7200 rpm with an honest cache of 32 MB (Also available is 64MB cache, buy this when affordable - it speeds up the throughput). These are real hard drives not wimpy things meant only for this function nor retired old versions of somewhat less drives as many seem to be. These also have....drum roll......an off/on switch. Wow! How novel. So if you want to leave it plugging in it is a viable option!

Cons: They tend to be slightly pricey but then considering their competition out there, well worth the money. I paid like a $170 for a 2 TB drive with 64 MB cache a couple of years and still regard it as an excellent purchase even though then I could have gotten dozens of drives for $100+.

Other Thoughts: They are built solid! A very substantial aluminum case. Though it is aluminum because of the thickness it feels hefty.
