This review is from: Fantom Drives G-Force3 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" External Hard Drive GF3B3000U Black
Pros: When it worked, it was great! Easily connected to my network, quiet, no software to install. It was ready to work right out of the box.
Cons: I bought this in October, 2011... 13 months later, I'm having to figure out what I need to do to send it back for a new one. The drive is toast. The light comes on but it is no longer recognized by any computer. I can't believe something that cost as much as this did (for an external drive) is dead after only 13 months. I thought I was paying extra for quality, I obviously thought wrong.
Other Thoughts: If any of you at Newegg are able to help me to figure out what, exactly, I need to do in order to return this... I would be very grateful. I know this doesn't reflect on Newegg, I have bought other things from your site before and absolutely love it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: She's fast and looks great. I've read other reviews about the keyboard and I have found none of those problems with this one. I love the feel of it actually. Although I haven''t had much of a chance to run it through all of its paces, it has performed well on everything thus far.
Cons: The laptop is heavier than I anticipated. I knew she was going to be big (17.3" screen) but for the 8.8 lbs they mentioned in the comparison, it feels heavier. Absolute MONSTER of an AC adapter! Seriously, I've seen bricks smaller (and it doesn't help with the weight issue). Not a fan of all the bloat-ware but wasn't difficult to clean up. The reason I gave 4/5 eggs... It arrived to me with an European power cord. Here in Texas, we don't use those (unless Newegg knows something I don't...). I contacted the customer service chat line about it and they are contacting their warehouse to try and "find" a new one to send me. In the meantime, I am typing this out on my old laptop because the new one is a glorified paperweight after the battery eventually died.
Other Thoughts: Very nice display and graphics. Again, I haven't had all the opportunity that I would have liked prior to writing this (see above), but a very good laptop overall.READ FULL REVIEW
