5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

This review is from: Fantom Drives G-Force Quad 4TB USB 3.0 / Firewire400 / 2 x Firewire800 / eSATA Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GF4000QU3 Black

Pros: Great capacity, quiet and reliable. I formatted the drive incorrectly originally so only could use 2TB. A short Internet search later I realized my error and reformatted and have full 4TB now available. I currently have 2 drives I use one as a backup for the other.

Cons: None

This review is from: Fantom Drives G-Force Quad 4TB USB 3.0 / Firewire400 / 2 x Firewire800 / eSATA Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GF4000QU3 Black

Pros: None

Cons: This device does not work, it showed up one time and than never appeared again, no matter what I did or what any of the tech support at my school did. Faulty product, do not waste your money!

This review is from: Fantom Drives G-Force Quad 4TB USB 3.0 / Firewire400 / 2 x Firewire800 / eSATA Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GF4000QU3 Black

Pros: None, even though newegg had the best price on them. I'll not be returning to this company

Cons: Two of the three drives ordered only work with the USB 3.0 ports. Fantom has failed to respond to my complaint and I haven't returned them to newegg because I already spent $60 in original shipping to get them to me in the USVI. I'm keeping them all for that reason, even though the USB connection is much slower than the Firewire 800 connection would be with my Mac.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Hard Drive

This review is from: Fantom Drives G-Force Quad 4TB USB 3.0 / Firewire400 / 2 x Firewire800 / eSATA Aluminum Desktop External Hard Drive GF4000QU3 Black

Pros: Reliable, quiet, both eSata and USB 3.0, simple and easy to use.

Cons: If powered down it takes a few seconds to come up to speed.

Other Thoughts: I have 4 Fantom external hard drives now, sized from 1-4 TB. I have eSata connections, as well as USB 2.0 & 3.0, so read and write speeds are pretty good on all but the USB 2.0. When my computer sleeps, the external drive sleeps too, so there is less wear and energy consumption.

I'm a speed freak, so I would not mind a faster offering from Fantom, meaning a 7200 rpm drive. But maybe that would mean more heat and a fan...

Buy a bigger drive than you think you need. With HD video and 20 mp cameras, a 1 TB drive will fill up before you know it.
