5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy

Pros: My NAS system was having some issues and I needed to offload the data. This connected to my workstation using the eSATA port, which made moving 3TB of data go by much quicker than USB 2.0 (no 3.0 ports in the house yet).

After the transfer was done, I built a new FreeNAS system that supported eSATA and USB 3.0, which allowed me to run the drive with the other two internal drives in RAIDZ. The performance is as expected and the drive runs cool.

Cons: It's silver, and my NAS is black.

Other Thoughts: Planning on purchasing the USB 3.0 version when I need more space. Possibly buying one for the office as well.

5 out of 5 eggs4 TB GreenDrive

Pros: This is a beautiful, quiet and well built drive that comes preformatted with NTFS

Cons: Users of older Windows operating systems should be aware that their computers will not recognize the GPT partitioning, and the manual does not properly guide you through the clean-up and reformatting process. Furthermore, only 2TB will be recognized irregardless of the number of partitions one wishes to create. You essentially get a 2TB drive. Newegg should make a mention of it.

Other Thoughts: Providing you understand what you are buying, this drive should go the stretch like all the other Fantom drives that are still humming away in my office/studio.

3 out of 5 eggsNot A Bad Drive, But, Be Warned

Pros: Beautiful drive, just as rock-solid as any of the other "Fantom" external drives. Lots of interface options, (USB or eSATA). Simple and cleanly designed, with only one indicator light. Power switch (always a plus). Case is built to last, and protect the hard drive inside. No fan design, will always stay quiet, but may get "warm", not hot though.

Cons: Drive came complete, but all documentation on the site did not prepare the purchaser with a minor flaw. The drive requires your system, hardware, and operating system, to understand a GPT format. If any of those things dont know this, the drive is just a 2 TB HD! Inside package documentation mentions this requirement, but nothing was said before purchase and ownership. Be warned!

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice to know the GPT format requirement before buying it. As it stands, I have owned other 4 TB externals, and no problems. I got this drive, and Wham! I just bought an EXTREMELY expensive 2 TB HD. As the drive was sold by a "partner" of Newegg, and not directly from Newegg, I know have to deal with their partner to get a return / refund. Be Warned!
