Ease of Use

Bought this one after trying the Fantom Green Drive. Measured power consumption over time (on my Mac as time machine drive) using Kill A Watt meter. This drive used about 1/3 less than the green drive. Also this drive is much quieter and has a Five year warranty instead of the One year that the Fantom provides. lists the Fantom Drives with 2yr warranty, but don't believe it, they are 1yr warranty.
