This review is from: Fantom Drives GreenDrive 2TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" External Hard Drive GD2000EU
Pros: It does what I need, it just sits there and does it's job, it stores data and keeps running. I haven't had a problem at all with this drive. Or my 7 year old 1TB Fantom drive.
Cons: I have the 1TB Fantom drive that did me well, but I needed more storage so I bought this drive. The 1TB had some spin up noise, but nothing compared to this 2TB drive, it is very noisy when spinning up and while working. I have since bought another 4TB drive and this 2TB is still the noisiest drive. I tested the drive speed today on my 2013 iMac and it came in at 18 MB/s write and 23 MB/s Read.
Other Thoughts: I would say in general this is not a special drive, but it hasn't failed me and that is the most important.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive STCA4000100 Black
Pros: This drive is surprisingly quite compared to my 2 fantom drives. I was skeptical about this drive, but it seems to be pulling about 114 Mb/s write and read. I would definitely buy another.
Cons: I haven't seen any cons with this drive in about a year.
Other Thoughts: Good Drive.READ FULL REVIEW
