Pretty decent product
Pros: Performs as advertised. Pretty easy to setup. Great for those backups that don't require you to have it plugged in all the time.
Cons: Cooling fan is a bit loud. It's a good thing Fantom didn't advertise "quiet" and that I wasn't looking for "quiet" in my backup system. 1/2 egg loss for fan noise. The other 1/2 egg loss was coz I can't give 1/2 egg back.
Other Thoughts: Two things come to mind. #1 - Would of been better if they opted for a larger fan with same CFM but lower dB not sure of the case design but it looks like it should of been able to accomodate a larger fan. #2 The instructions could be a bit more detailed.

Pros: Easy to setup, very fast, especially with firewire800. Configuring raid is very easy.
Cons: FAR TOO LOUD! Bought this to sit on my desk to be a backup disk for my macbook, but it's far too loud. It would be forgivable if it were the disks making the noise, but it's the fan. I'll use this unit elsewhere inside the datacenter and find another solution for my office.
