Fantom USB External Drives

Pros: It was cheap comparatively.

Cons: Run, don't walk away. Be afraid, very afraid to order Fantom. After 4 failed drives on several PCs in the house, clearly these are fragile at best.

Died within a week of purchase

Pros: Runs cool.

Cons: HUGE blue light on the front was enough to distract me while copying files.

Overall Review: I bought two of these drives over a year. One died within 8 months and the other died a week after purchase. Would definitely not recommend this product.

Good, Cheap memory

Pros: Can't beat the price. Quiet. Reasonable quick on USB 2.0.

Cons: I feel ya on the led(two reviews back). SATA would have been faster but I didn't have external SATA at the time.

Great external

Pros: Hasn't given me any problems. It's silent and doesn't get hot. It has a great price for 500 gigs. It sets itself up almost instantly on all my computers. I myself probably won't fill it up any time soon.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Newegg is great.

My drive failed too. Doh!

Pros: Quiet, fast access, like the vertical design. My old 80GB Fantom drive was very reliable.

Cons: Drive was purchased November 2007, and failed on July 2008. Drive makes a whirring sound, and is no longer readable by my computer. It's too bad to lose all the data on the drive. I'm sending it back to the manufacturer for repair.

Overall Review: Next time I'm buying an external drive with a fan.

Great Job Newegg!

Pros: Excellent 'chat' feature with friendly and knowledgeable
customer service rep., 3-day delivery of external hard drive. Newegg is simple to deal with and is highly
reccommended by all of the reviews.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I love this Fantom Hard drive. Simple instructions and the drive works quiet and perfect. The blue light is no brighter than the light bar on my squad. Whiners.
Thank you Fantom and Newegg - I'll be back forever.
