Customer Reviews of Fantom GreenDrive 2TB USB 2.0 & eSATA 32MB Aluminum External Hard Drive - 2 Year Warranty!
Easiest piece of equipment you will ever use with good capacity storage . Operates quietly and quickly. HIGHLY recommended.
This is the 3rd one of these I have purchased. All are running well and were cheaper than buying the oem drive. Great results with the eSata connection.
It works perfectly. I did have a little hard time getting my computer to find it, but that's only because of my ignorance with how to format hard drives. Since then though, I have had no complaints. It's super quiet. I can barely hear it. My fan is louder. With the E-sata, it's so fast too. Great purchase.
1 year later and still going strong3/3/2013
I've had this for a little over a year now, and it's still going strong. I use it heavily on a daily basis. I just recently bought another one (the 2tb gforce3) cause my movie collection has become too big. it does make a little bit of noise, nothing awful, just at start up the disc will make a high pitch sound, and occasionally it'll make a few clicks when it's writing or reading. But it's nothing that bothers me. no regrets. would recommend.
No problem so far after 9 months
Love This Hard Drive!!6/14/2012
this drive was super easy to set up. Right out of the box, just plugged it in and searched for the easy to find installation instructions for Mac users. Opened the PDF version, followed the steps and boom, it's all set up! It even syncs up amazingly with TimeMachine, which is a pretty cool Mac feature as well. The external hard drive has plenty of space for all my documents, music, and videos. Again, I'm no computer genius so I definitely appreciate the simplicity and straight forward approach of this product
This hard drive was easy to set up and use. Has good storage value.
Works well but Noisy4/18/2012
Solid construction. Well built case. SATA a good option.This drive makes noise. It works as advertised but I did not expect to hear a low level continual medium to high pitch when it was operating. Transfer speeds are fine. Capacity is good. Have had several drives from other manufacturers and never heard them in the background except for maybe at start up. You want quiet, find another driver.
Purchased this item for my personal use, not knowing a lot about the MFG, however the reviews here at buy.com were very positive of the product. I've had it for a week, it performs flawlessly, I'm sold on this brand. Solid construction, no noise, quiet, peaceful and beautiful, Fantom (MicroNet Technology) hit a Grand Slam with this product. I will be picking up a few more for the business.
After my iMac's built in hd failed and never used Time machine, it was time to get a new dedicated external hd. This one is great. I've basically left it on at all times except for when my iMac is turned off because of travel. 2 terabytes is plenty of space and I have no complaints whatsoever. Also, I received my rebate pretty quickly.
Another Great Fantom Drive10/7/2011
THis is my third Fantom drive. I've got a 1TB on my set top DVR for over a year now running 24/7... no issues. This one works great on my macbook pro for time machine and itunes library... I got my rebate today about 3 weeks after I mailed it on.. Get one for sure! FM
my first one worked so well, i ordered a 2d one. just plug it in and go. it also comes with software to keep your data synchronized with the Fantom. Highly Recommended.
Great value; You will NEVER get a rebate from Fant8/11/2011
I have two of these drives and I also bought one for my son. They are quiet, reliable and very easy to use. If you purchase this drive when a rebate is offered from Fantom, you will NEVER; I repeat; NEVER receive it. I recommend that you purchase these drives when there is NO rebate offered so you will not be let down.
Best USB HDD to date6/20/2011
Bought this HDD to stream movies unto my tv and it is way quicker then any HDD if used before, never heats up, very quiet and is good looking also. Hands down the best HDD I have owned to date.
Piece of Cake- EASY, Great price!6/13/2011
This was for my family to back up our main drives on our PC and our Mac systems. I was able to format, set up two partitions-and network this HD in less than 6 minutes. Could have been less than five but I was drinking coffee. We could have used the back up software with Windows but elected to use the freeware, Commodo. It did the trick, too. We have two full drives backed up, and are now set with differential back ups for both machines. EASY to use, easy to set up, easy to see why it works so well- will gladly buy more products from thsi company, too.
Can't blame so far - this drive serves me well, though I don't put much load on it - I use it for occasioan backup. Performance is okay, sound level is okay, it doesn't get too hot. What I don't like is rebate process. I have sent my rebate over to the processing company back in February, they are still processing it. So, my guess is - do not expect to get rebate ever.
Big Storage at a Small Price1/12/2010
I bought this drive during one of Buy.com's sales, so I got it for $149.99 after rebate. That is an awesome price for 2 terabytes of storage! The case runs warm after extended use but does not get too hot. Due to its "green" attributes, the drive's speed changes, so it does not have the consistent speed and lower noise of a 7200 RPM drive. However, the energy savings and bang-for-the-buck are fair trade-offs for a little more noise. As for the eSATA, at first it didn't work for me until I realized I had to enable that feature in my BIOS and had to have the drive turned on and plugged into my eSATA port prior to booting up.
