Great price, unreliable case 9/6/2017 11:09:49 AM

Pros: The price was great for the size.
The drive is fast.

Cons: The case stopped working about a year and a half after I bought it so we had to buy a new case.

G-G-G G-Unit 10/14/2015 3:11:41 PM

Pros: Love this drive. Beats any external storage I've owned from WD or Seagate in terms of speed and reliability (so far). It's perhaps the coolest looking thing on my desk and has gotten quite a few compliments on its stylishness.

Oh, and it's aluminum.

Cons: Fantom is a little vague about their drive specs. Not a con for me but it has a blue LED that flashes quite a bit and may cause epileptic seizures or annoy spectators.

Overall Review: Make sure you remember to check the cache size before purchasing. I almost forgot and ended up with the 32MB instead of the 64.

It's a 'Green' Drive-Don't get tricked 8/2/2012 9:05:24 AM

Pros: Working 5 months later.

Their site says, “newest and fastest external disk drives available “.
The standard knowledge of a 'Green' drive is that it's a little slower for the power savings trade off.
I assumed this drive would run as fast as possible as opposed to their Green drives.
The drive inside is a Seagate ST2000DL003 5900 rpm Green drive!!!
If I wanted a Green drive, I would have purchased one that was advertised as Green!
I wanted performance, but they hide the fact that it's a fast interface, constrained by a slow drive.
Only 2 eggs because I feel like I was deceived Fantom!

Cons: 3' USB 3.0 cable is a little short to put the drive on the desktop unless the cpu is directly under it. Would 1 or 2' of wire really break them?

Transfer would be higher if they put a decent 7200 rpm drive in.
Had to get the drive elsewhere because of availablility-sorry Newegg.

Overall Review: I agree with the previous poster about rebate. Not on this unit, but another Fantom I had to get Fantom's help in getting the rebate. Eventually got it, but why does Fantom hire a 3rd party to deal with their customers who's only claim to fame is that they tick off their customers?

Great but finicky eSATA 10/18/2011 4:55:35 PM

Pros: Great drive for the price. No problems with USB. eSata a scream when it works.

Cons: eSata barely recognizes. Used to at first - No longer. I have to manually assign it a drive letter just to get it to mount from the Administrator panel but now when I do that, it hangs the system up.

Perhaps there's a fix for this. USB 2.0 still works but is SLOW...

Dont count on the rebate 10/13/2011 2:17:33 PM

Pros: quiet

Cons: they will try to trap you and reject your rebate submission. the website where I bought from does not show my comments, so I posted here and let people know what will happen.

Overall Review: I bought one in July since there is a $25 rebate. It is very quiet when it is running, and the speed, if it works as USB3.0, can reach 70MB/s transfer rate, but in most cases it cannot quit normally from my Ubuntu Linux desktop. this is very annoying. whoever sponsors the rebate really doesn't want to give you the rebate. They set up a strange address rule so that they can reject the submission. This is the only rebate I don't get back in the past ten years. Too shrewd to deal with

FAST!!! 2/19/2011 10:33:55 AM

Pros: This is one of the fastest external hard drives I've encountered, and I am using a USB 2.0 connection on my Windows 7 PC! Nice, compact, attractive case but a bit heavy.

Cons: None
