  • Summary: Works like a champ, a little(barely) slower than expected. Not a big deal for most transfers just the initial large transfers

Extremely useful

  • Summary: Just bought my sixth Fantom drive. I was delighted to see that the latest one came with a power supply with a short cord to the brick rather than a power brick that inserts directly into a socket, blocking two and sometimes three sockets on a power strip. All the Fantoms are fast enough for my backup needs; the USB 3.0 is fast enough so that I can run a virtual machine directly from the Fantom.

An Experience

,, TigerDirect.com
11 December 2012
  • Summary: I am new to the use of external HDDs but not new to computers. I have been in IT for over 10 years. I was hoping the drive would have come with the software used for backing up data. Instead I used the Windows 7 backup feature. When I told Windows to back up all.....it did not. I basically lost 3 years worth of data. The experience defeated the purpose of me buying the external drive. Oh well, it could have been user error so I will not blame the drive.

No problems here so far

  • Summary: I purchase this bad-boy, as I am into multimedia, jpeg, bmp, video of mutiple types, and used my devices as a backup for over a year or problem free use. It functioned as plug-and-play. I can choose to keep it turned off until needed, or turn on, and the operating system recognizes it after it initializes. I attempted to user the 4TB unit where my version of Windows Vista had problems identifying the unit, but that's the worst review that I can give; sorry.

Fantoms Made Me Believe

Lamont,, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: I'm a multimedia artist. I deal with images, video footage, graphics, and animation projects on a regular basis. It is important for me to have a reliable backup storage device. I swear by these. Why? Because I own a 160GB, 1TB, and a 2TB. Unfortunately, I have dropped all them by accident from at least 3 feet high, but they all kept running as if nothing had happened. Now, I only go with Fantom External Drives. I'll be purchasing a new 2TB to replace the 160GB soon.

Spontaneous fire

ortho, TigerDirect.com
29 September 2012
  • Summary: Initially lvery happy with the drive. Installed in May 2012. The drive unit worked very well until one evening (late September 2012)I saw smoke and a spark coming out of the unit. The unit was plugged into my main computer but was not in use at the time. Appeared to be a spontaneous fire , likely related to enclosure or fan features. Have not disassembled to diagnose yet. Pulled plug. Stopped fire from spreading.

Works as advertised ! ! !

  • Summary: It worked fine, even with USB 2.0 system, very quiet, runs cool and does the job perfectly, so far, its only been installed a month or so. Only comment that I have is that the USB 3.0 to 2.0 cord could be a bit longer.

Great hard drive

  • Summary: This unit is very easy to set up, the USB 3.0 is extremely fast, it runs very cool and quiet. It works with USB2.0 too and I feel it is faster than my other external hard drive USB2.0.
