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.
