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.

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".
