Not that it is a spectacular feat, but I've had the 1TB GreenDrive for six months now and have not had any problems with it. No problems getting it started right out of the box. Pure Plug 'n Play connectivity whenever we take it from the desktop and transport it with the laptop. We use the GreenDrive as our movie storage drive, and I wasn't too happy with the USB connection speed. I put an eSATA card into my desktop and connected the GreenDrive that way. MUCH BETTER!

-John L. quote

On the Mac, Just initialize it, and make it a Time Machine backup disk. If you need more flexibility, use another backup utility. I was not impressed with the Shadow software that came with the drive. I now have 3 of these drives, and they are the best drives I have! They are quiet, they stop spinning when they are not in use, They wake up quickly when they are accessed again, and they run extremely cool, even while they are being heavily used.

Product Overview

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

The GreenDrive II 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 II, 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.
