Fantom Drives Gforce/3 USB 3.0 hard drives are the newest and fastest external disk drives available. With the latest generation hi-speed USB 3.0 interface, the Fantom Gforce/3 features a maximum bus speed of 5Gb/sec... That's 10 times faster than with USB 2.0! Fantom Gforce/3 USB 3.0 hard drives are also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 connections
Pros: Works. On 3.0 I've observed write at 65MB/s , read 120 MB/s , random read 6 MB/s.
Other Thoughts: Looks cool.

Reliable, Fast, Clumsy
Pros: I ordered this Fantom 2 TB drive, USB 3.0. The physical drive is encased in a sleek, brushed-aluminum housing, w/ removable stand. The housing has plenty of ventilation holes to reduce wear from heat. The HDD is quick; ready as soon as it's turned on. USB 2.0 compatible. Not TOO loud.
Cons: The included USB 3.0 cord is short. Really short. 2 feet, at most. Depending on your setup space, you may have to purchase a different (longer) USB 3.0 cord. The cord is standard "Type-A" USB on one end, and a new-style "Type-B" 3.0 box on the other end.
Other Thoughts: Decent purchase. Fair price. Lots of space. Had to accommodate for this drive, more than I expected. Bulky.

Dead on arrival
Cons: I just bought a fantom external hard Drive GF3B2000UP. I plugged it my desktop and nothing showed up. I checked in disk management and nothing is there too. i first thought it might be my computer so i tested the hard drive on my laptop and my brothers computer and still nothing. i could here the hard drive spinning but it is not showing up on any of the computers i tried it on. i assume it might be the case connection to the hard drive so I RMAed it.
Other Thoughts: I wonder if i should have gone with a different company other then Fantom. Newegg got it to me pretty quick but what's the point of fast shipping when the product is defective and i have to ship it back and wait for a new product....

Great fast hard drive
Pros: I've been using this since June and it's worked just great! I just always have it hooked up to my pc and use it for data storage. Just like having an internal hard drive. Just great!
Cons: None so far.
