5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: Work as intended, fast, plenty of storage space, look is nice.
I also see the on/off switch on the back as a plus ... it dosen't start everytime I light up my PC ... I only turn it on when I have something to backup.

Cons: None to this day ... we'll see if it fails faster than my old Seagate ...

3 out of 5 eggsReliable, 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.

It has a dedicated power cable and kill switch. Not sure if that's a 7200 rpm external HDD thing, or just a Fantom thing. Either way, it's not ideal for me.

Also, don't expect to get the super-high speeds that are advertised on any new USB 3.0 device. Yes, it's fast. No, you won't transfer 1+ Gb/second.

Other Thoughts: Decent purchase. Fair price. Lots of space. Had to accommodate for this drive, more than I expected. Bulky.

1 out of 5 eggsDead on arrival

Pros: none

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....

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 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.
