5 out of 5 eggsWorks with 4TB drive too

Pros: I have a fantom drive gdp2000eu. Purchased it a couple years ago. I installed a 4TB drive in the unit and it works. I have full capacity (3.63TB) of that drive.

I called the company and spoke to someone who told me a 4TB will not work in this drive. It would only "see" 2TB. Apparently he is incorrect.

Cons: none.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked great for a while

Pros: price

Cons: lifespan

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what the expected lifespan is on external hard drives, but after almost 4 years the case died. At first I thought it was the drive itself but I did a quick swap with an older WD external and it worked just fine in that case. I wish it would've lasted a bit longer but for the price I guess I'd have a hard time finding something better.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: I've had this drive since October 31st 2012, and just hit the 14-15 month mark. This is the time I've read in many reviews when hard drives make it or break it, so I'm always careful around it. So far I've had no problems, I'll update the review at the end of 2014 probably (or heaven forbid something happens before that)

It's a silent drive, and it's not slow (at least for me). I'm a little concerned about the heat, but it seems the enclosure is doing its job.

Cons: None so far. I'm being cautious now that it passed the 1 year mark.

Other Thoughts: Fantom drives have been my main hard drives, if only because I've been lucky for most of my purchases of their brand. I wouldn't really recommend them if you got more than 2 DOA from them though, Fantom's costumer service is mediocre at best, so it'd probably give you more headaches than you were planning to go through.

1 out of 5 eggsOnly made it 5 months...bad disk

Pros: Small, clean looking, quiet, stable. Ran well, stayed up and accessible for a long time.

Cons: Disk failed after 5 months. Just plain failed, clicks when attempting start up, dead. Voided warranty to remove disk and test in another system, so I'm probably the new owner of a fancy door stop.

4 out of 5 eggsCaveat Required

Pros: This is just one of several Fantom drives I own. I does what it's supposed to do, store files.

Cons: It seems lately that HD manufacturers believe they do not need to make hard drives compatible in the FAT-32 format as like the other formats as they once did. I bought this drive specifically because I thought I could re-format it as a FAT-32 drive as I have with other Fantom drives previously. My video equipment can only play files/videos from FAT-32 formatted storage devices. Does this company think they should decide what formats we should use? If not, then I suggest Fantom start providing the format types their drives use in their advertising and specifications info. NewEgg would also do well to provide this information in their sales description. It might save them allot of RMA requests and returns. Had I known about this limitation, I would have purchased another drive with FAT-32 format capability.

Other Thoughts: This is a standard usb 2 drive. Speed is typical for usb 2. It looks and acts like all the other Fantom external drives they sell with the exception that it also has an eSata socket.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't last

Pros: Worked great for about years

Cons: My drive has recently stopped working. I bought it in 2010, and I went to turn it on one day and the computer said the device was not recognized. No warning, it just won't work. I have tried it on my Windows 7 64 bit desktop, two Windows 7 32 bit net books, and a Windows XP machine at work. Nada. Swapped out cables, the light is no different then it was before. It just refuses to work. Kind of a bummer when your backup dies.

4 out of 5 eggsRecommended but eSATA connection now reversed.

Pros: This is my second order of the Fantom GreenDrive Pro 2TB external drives. Although I prefer the regular Fantom 2TB external drives over the "GreenDrive" version, I do not notice any difference in the performance, except that one "2TB GreenDrive Pro" from a previous order was DOA. I haven't had any failures with the standard Fantom external drives that I've had for up to 4 years. With that one exception, I've found them to be very reliable, with quiet operation and minimal heating of the exterior case, at a reasonable price.

Cons: The LED indicator in the front of the unit is very bright and the fact that it's green makes it seem even brighter than the blue LED indicator of the standard Fantom drives. Also, for reasons unknown, the eSATA connector has been reversed so that it is opposite of all my previous Fantom external drives. This means I now have to "twist" the eSATA cable to connect it to the computer. This is not ideal since eSATA connectors are somewhat fragile and eSATA cables are fairly stiff, so this results in mechanical strain on the eSATA connector if you aren't careful.

Other Thoughts: I am, personally, pleased with the overall quality, performance and price point of Fantom's external HDDs to the point that they are the vendor of choice for my external HDD needs. Since I have had one "GreenDrive" arrive DOA, I do also recommend that you test your drives upon receipt, even if you don't plan to use them immediately (i.e multiple units ordered as spares).
