I've purchased 2 drives from this manufacturer and they are still working but I have NEVER gotten a rebate check ever for either drive. The full price you see is what you will pay.

I bought this 2TB Fantom in an effort to increase the recording capacity of my DirecTv HD-DVR model HR22-100 - (I had to buy the eSATA cable separately from BB). My first try to connect the drive to DirecTv didn't work because I was impatient! :) If anybody is trying to expand their HD DVR storage capacity specifically for HR22-100 model (which by default comes with a 500GB internal HD so I went from 500GB to 2TB for $85) then here are the steps to follow: 1. Unplug HR22-100 from wall outlet. 2. Connect the drive using an eSATA cable (usb is slower compared to eSATA) to the DirecTV DVR. 3. Switch on the Fantom drive and then sit back and relax. Make sure your TV is on and you are on your regular directv AUX output. 4. After about 5 minutes (could be earlier) you will see DirecTV turning on as if it is the first time - going through the downloading stuff.. and then you should be on. 5. To check whether your new HD is hooked up and recognized by the receiver, go to LIST and it should show 100% free if your new drive is recognized. Overall, I am very satisfied with the drive. Only drawback I see (not an issue with Fantom drive but with DirecTv) you cannot switch off the HD because if you do, you will have to go through all the setups with directv again.

3rd Fantom External Drive

by Brandon on 8/23/2010

I have 3 Fantom Drives and this is my second Green Drive. I have never had a problem with them, but I need a lot of space for backup. I make sure I have an extra copy of everything, so I try to keep an empty drive at all times. I don't move them from place to place, so that is not a problem for me, but because the outer shell is metal and not plastic I feel I could haul them around with me if I needed. Setup is so easy that an old man with no computer skills could practically do it and you can't beat the price. I would recommend a Fantom external hard drive to anyone!

I purchased a 2GB drive with USB and firewire connectivity. Just after the warranty expired, the drive became unrecognizable by any of my computers' USB or firewire connections. If you use for backup, you may not be able to access the drive and retrieve your data. Not good. Low marks because of the timely demise of the drive, just after warranty expiration.
