Has proven to be a solid brand for me6/25/2014
This would be the fifth Fantom drive purchased and all have worked well. The pricing has been competitive, and you get a metal case instead of plastic.
Fantom GreenDrive3 2TB USB 3.03/1/2014
works well and is quiet
I was wondering what these Fantom drives were like and bought this 2T version. It was very easy to set up for a Mac - format and partition. It runs smoothly and quietly and on sale it was a very real bargain. The USB 3.0 makes it very speedy. Thoroughly pleased.
Good drive for a Great price12/27/2013
Bought this drive to use as a backup drive, replacing an older 2TB drive that was showing errors. Was very simple to install. Simply plugged it into a USB 3.0 port, powered it on and my computer recognized it immediately. Copied some backup files to it with no problems. Seems to work just fine, and is very quiet.
Storage When You Need It.11/9/2013
Works well with USB 3.0 connection but is also backward compatible to USB 2.0. Stored over 1.75 TB of videos in a very short period of time. Saves HDD space for other video files.
Great performance and price9/7/2013
Used quite a few of these for backups over the past several years. It's hard to beat the cost and performance compared to other large-capacity external drives. No bloatware or cheesy backup software preloaded. Just lots of space and high-speed connectivity.
Easy set up8/19/2013
This drive was easy to set up. It's small and quiet. We backed up all our videos and pics on this drive. Speed is fine for our purposes. Must apply for the rebate after only 30 days.
Cool, light and moderately small8/17/2013
I really like this hard drive and it has been working just fine for me. The size is smaller than I thought ir would be. The one it is replacing is a 500 gig I bought about 3 years ago which cost more, it noisier and much larger, so i am very impressed by this one. Highly recommended.
Being a greendrive, 2TB with a small footprint, ease of use & fast USB3 makes this a terrific buy at the price!
quick, quiet and cool5/28/2013
This quiet unit rarely gets warm. A good performer. I have several Greendrive 2TB and1.5TB, zero problems. Install and run without complications.

The vendor is playing a trick10/13/2011
so you cannot get back the rebate. This is the only rebate I don't get back in the past ten years!
Pro: Very good price with the mail in rebate. Cons: After reading all the hype with USB 3.0 speeds, I was expecting significantly higher transfer speeds over the USB 2.0 interface. However, transferring data on the same system to the Fantom GreenDrive2 USB 3.0 External Hard Drive resulted in speeds of 65-70MB/s as compared to a USB 2.0 drive with speed in the 28-32 MB/s range. I realize the is a lot of factors to consider when comparing the USB 3.0 to the USB 2.0, which is why I used the same files on the same system. For kicks, I will try the Fantom drive with the USB 2.0 to get the average throughput for the same files. Very short cable – with the system tower on my office floor, the included USB 3.0 cable barely reached the drive on my desktop. The response from Micronet support - "65-70MB/s is a very good data transfer speed, far better than you could expect from any other drive".
Fantom 2TD External Drive7/28/2011
Product arrived in a timely fashion. Was easy to connect and performs as expected. I'm using this as a backup drive to protect all the projects I have going on my hard drives. So far this 2TB drive has been doing an outstanding job. I purchased another one of these for my son as a Christmas gift. His crashed but was replaced free of charge.
