Fantom's G-Force GreenDrive line of external USB and eSATA disk drives use the latest advances in power saving technology and ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) compliant to minimize the drive's carbon footprint without sacrificing performance. They're a power conscious step forward to provide maximum capacity and performance while reducing power consumption by up to 40%.

The G-Force GreenDrive USB 2.0 Hard Drives have a sturdy aluminum casing for durability, fanless design for silent operation, and can sit horizontally or stand vertically.

3 out of 5 eggsSent it right back

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive 3TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" External Hard Drive GD3000EU

Pros: Didn't use, so can't comment.

Cons: Didn't use, so can't comment.

Other Thoughts: I just want Phantom Drives to know, that after reading negative reviews for their customer service, I sent this drive right back.

I do not want to support companies with bad customer service or who make the customer jump hoops in order to obtain warranty service.

Some reviewers indicated when their drives failed under warranty, you must send them the drive at your own cost for them to inspect first and then they determine whether or not they will honor the warranty; if they don't, you must pay a $45 diagnostic fee. Search for a review on [popular shopping site that begins with "A"] by "Jewell D. Moore"

Sorry Phantom, this is unacceptable. You just lost a sale.

Drives fail, but there is no excuse for poor customer service.

2 out of 5 eggsOverheating?

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive 3TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" External Hard Drive GD3000EU

Pros: Affordable storage, fast eSATA connection

Cons: Overheats

Other Thoughts: This external drive tends to run hot more often than not. Makes me fear that it will be failing soon. I turn the power off when my desktop is off, and ran a small fan on it to keep it cool, which seems to be working for now. When it's too hot, it won't mount when the desktop powers on. POST recognizes that there's something powered connected to an eSATA port, but won't see the drive. Going to get a new drive to back this one up just to be safe.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks.

This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive 3TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" External Hard Drive GD3000EU

Pros: I plugged it in. It turned on. I put files on it. They are still there. Not much to say about it, besides that it does exactly what it is supposed to do. I run my development VMs off of it over eSATA.

Cons: I sometimes have to power cycle it for Win7 to see it after a reboot. Not a big deal, and is probably a Windows problem. Vibrates a bit more than I would like.

Other Thoughts: Pretty good buy.
