a good back-up drive

on 9/15/2011

I wanted it for video storage for project work. Seems to do what's needed for fast transfer.

Wake Up!

by Flyboydan0 on 1/9/2012

Works OK on my work PC, but will not wake up on either of my Macs. It appears I'm not the only Mac user that has this issue either. I tried both 1394 connections and the USB connection and still had the same sleeping drive issue. The only way to get the system to respond is to turn off the drive and turn it back on again. This can cause data loss and is sure to bring up an unsafe drive removal. Mac users are best to shop for an alternative. My Studio Pro from Western Digital works perfect.

Product Overview

GreenDrive Quad is Fantom Drive’s answer to energy reduction and environmental responsibility by utilizing up to 40% less power without sacrificing performance.

The GreenDrive Quad employs variable speed disk mechanisms that increase their rotational velocity in response to host demand, resulting in virtually no performance degradation vs. a 7200RPM disk.

Additionally, no lead is used in any component of the GreenDrive Quad, making it Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (ROHS) as well as California Electronic Waste Recycling Act compliant. As a matter of fact, even the soy-based inks used to print the box are environmentally friendly.

GreenDrive yields an average drive power savings of 4-5 watts over competitors’ drives while maintaining solid performance. That power savings equates to reducing CO2 emission by up to 60 kilograms per drive per year – the equivalent of taking your car off the road for 14 days each year, and saving up to $14 per year in electricity costs depending on the power-on-hours.

GreenDrive Quad Features Reduce power consumption up to 40% eSATA cable included NTI Shadow 4 with Ninja for PC and Mac eSATA and USB 2.0 interface Blazing fast 300MB/s eSATA port PC & Mac compatible Quiet fan-free design Compact aluminum enclosure

NTI Shadow 4 with Ninja Features Two Way Sync with multiple computers and drives Ninja for USB drives adds customized public and private partitions, 256-bit encryption and password on a PC Continuous data protection and scheduled backups Capacity alert so you know when to add more space Version control delivers multiple revisions of your files Drag and Drop plus 1-Click “Quick Restore” Improved user interface for even easier backup and file sharing Graph layout of Source and Destination devices to quickly understand capacity
