What it holds:
Company does NOT stand behind their product!!!3/21/2013
I was given a Fantom 1.5 hard drive as a gift over a year ago which crashed in just under 1 year’s time. When I called the company, I learned that they do not stand by their product (regardless of the warranty). They would not extract the data stored or fix the device (not that I would ever trust it again)! I would never recommend this brand to anyone.
Awesome so far!2/5/2013
While I've only had this drive for one week, it has performed flawlessly, and so much better and faster than my former ext. HD. Also, I opted for the free (longer) shipping, and actually received the item the following day (in So Cal).
Is this drive USB 3.0 for the Mac? Warning.1/20/2013
I ordered this drive and you will note that in the description it says it is Mac compatible and a USB 3.0 drive. However, on arrival the manual says the following: : "As of this printing, there are no USB 3.0 host bus adapters with Macintosh hardware support. The GreenDrive3 is fully supported with Macintosh based computers via USB 2.0 connections". I am not going to unbox it until I hear from the company regarding whether or not this is USB 3.0 compatible with a Mac. Be carefuly ordering.
I have 2 of these Fantom 1.5 TB drives and I've never had a problem. Run great no over heating. Do the job for my WD TV Live. Great price also.
Price and Performance is Great for this External D12/27/2012
So far so good. This external drive helps me a lot as a backup drive and storing my important files and the price for this device is good.
Relied on Fantom Drives for a few years.12/21/2012
Have two already...solid drives! Pleased with the speed of delivery and packaging of the item. Came with a heavier gauge USB 3.0 and the power seemed solid enough (had a crappy thin power cable on my last Green drive, but this one looks much sturdier). Formatted and using with no problems so here's to another good purchase! A better explanation of the Green Drive technology could be useful on the item listing though, just so the consumer knows what they're purchasing.
Needs to be plugged into an outlet12/20/2012
This must be plugged into an outlet in addition to your computger. I did not get that impression from the product listing, and therefore am disappointed with the product. It is also rather large and bulky. It does seem to work fine, though not as fast data transfer as I would like. If you know what you're getting and choose to buy it, I don't think it will disappoint you as it disappointed me. Buy.com could improve by including a "what's in the box" photo as other sites do.
Good External Hard Drive12/4/2012
This is a good external hard drive if you want to keep it on one spot; Its quite heavy. Other than that its pretty good. A lot of room (1.5TB) at very reasonable price. Good buy!
Great HD at a Great Prie11/13/2012
The Falcon 1.5 TB external HD for only $69 was great. IU just recieved it today and am waiting for my USB3.0 card to try it out and see how it works out of the box. Will relate my pleasure at its speed and ease of operation after I have tried it for at least a month
