Died exactly 13 months after purchase4/11/2012
Hard drive failed 13 months after purchase (and 1 month after warranty expired). I would avoid this brand!
Just received my new drive. For the money, I have no complaints. Works great.
Big capacity, solid construction.3/8/2011
Lots of space to store backups, etc. USB and eSATA connections give flexibility. Even worked on an old PC over a UPB 1.1 connection. Quiet, d/n get very warm. Solid aluminum case. Stylish looking for a "brick" :) Wish the cabled that came with it were longer. Unless your wall plug is within 2 or 3 feet of your PC, you'll need an extension cord or USB extension cable!
Very sick on arrival2/21/2011
I have a 1TB version of this drive that worked great so I ordered this 2TB one. However, the 2TB drive I got behaved very erratically from the beginning. It either wouldn't turn on or wouldn't stay on if it did power up. The eSATA did not provide a data connection even when the drive was on. I tried it on multiple different computers with same results. I ended up returning it.
I will never buy another Fantom Drive again…2/9/2011
I got this drive for Christmas after asking for it and it stopped working, it would randomly shut off and it would not come on until I pulled out the power cable and USB cable multiple times and then it would stay on for a minute or two then shut off again. Sent it in for RMA (which cost me $13 and change) and they let me know they couldn’t find a single thing wrong with the unit. I have been going back and forth with the company for over a week now trying to convince them it wasn’t working with multiple computers or my Blu-Ray player and still nothing, they go days without contacting me. So frustrated with this company and will never buy from them again, I have bought Western Digital Drives and anytime I had problems they switched them out if I gave a legitimate reasoning of what problems I was having along with Iomega but these guys believe I am making this stuff up, like I want to spend money on shipping costs just for the fun of it. At this point I still don’t have the drive back; I might just give up and should have bought a name brand drive.
Nice Drive - Quiet11/6/2010
I have had this drive for just over a month. I use it as a media drive for my Western Digital Media Player. It works great - Quiet Operation. I never shut it off because it seems to power down when not in use. Stays cool to the touch. Has a large blue light when on which could annoy some but mine is in a cabinet so it is not really visible. I have only hooked it up using USB so I cannot comment on the other ports
Just What I Ordered and Wanted10/12/2010
The drive was easy to install and use. I had a security issue and my e-mail to the vendor was answered quickly and in words I could understand.
Mass Storage At An Affordable Price - Even without10/11/2010
This is the second Fantom Drive that I have purchased. I was so happy with my first drive (1 TB) that when this drive with 2 TB was offered at such a low price (even w/o the Rebate it is a great bargain). 1. It is easy to setup and use; 2. It is quiet; 3. It is fast; 4. It is dependable. I have worked in the computer sales and service segment since BEFORE there were PC Computers, and I know a bargain when I see one and this is it! AND, the Square D extended warranty is an added benefit to keep even the most un-believing user calmed. Buy it! It is worth the time and money!!
It is a great HD that is easy to setup. The feature that I like is that is spins down after a bit. Power bumps and outage doesn't seem to effect it once it is spun down. It is also quiet when running.
GOOD Product overall... and at this price its awes8/23/2010

Good Product & Works Well8/12/2010
Not sure why the first person to review this product was talking about Kingston (is a good brand though), but this product works just fine. I have had no issues with it since buying it the 2nd week of July. Works well and connected right away to my computer with no driver issues. Have Windows 7 64-bit OS.
