    Don’t buy a cable!! Want a quiet drive? Please read., April 13, 2013

    This review is from: Fantom Drives Gforce3 Pro 2TB 7200 RPM USB 3.0 Aluminum External Hard Drive (GF3B2000UP) (Personal Computers)
    I’ll write a real review soon. Stars may change. So far, I’ve only unboxed the drive, but it made me want to put up this quick note.

    Amazon reports that this drive is usually bought with “Micro Connectors Superspeed USB 3.0 A to B Cable, (6 Feet)” and, hey, this is USB 3 and who’s got one of those cables kicking around so I’d better go buy one. Well, there’s one IN THE BOX with the drive. I may have missed it, but I don’t see this information anywhere on the product page. So, now you know!

    I’ve installed the free isyncbox software (this is software offered by a website; it is NOT something that comes with the drive) and wanted a new external drive with its own power supply to run constantly as my cloud storage. I ordered this drive because the description says, “A fan-free design for virtually silent operation.” Uhm, no. I almost sent the drive back. 7200 rmp makes a MIGHTY vibration. But just before boxing it up, I took a piece of the styrofoam packing to use as a cushion/stand, and the the drive’s vibrations are no longer very noticeable (audible).

    Great Hard Drive!, February 19, 2013
    By 

    I have had this hard drive for over a year, and I love it.

    Out of the box, you will receive the hard drive, a plastic stand, a USB adapter, a good manual, and the power cord. The drive is VERY well built.

    My drive was practically plug and play – just hook it up to your computer, and start working! The drive comes pre-formatted in the Windows format system, NTFS. From reading the description, it may have bloatware. I never got to find out – for my mid-2012 MBP, I just let Time Machine take over with the conversion to HFS (Apple) formatting and backup. If one needs the manual, it is very easy to read (the author’s first language was English, a rarity these days) and quite helpful. And as with most electronics, if all else fails, Google and YouTube are always helpful.

    Formatting only took a few seconds – the 7,200 RPM and USB 3.0 have proved to be quite impressive. Coping over my 130Gb of photos, audio, applications, and documents took considerably longer, a little over 24 hours. This was due to the 5,400 RPM hard drive in my computer (see below). Since the initial backup, Time Machine only takes a minute or two to update a 1-5 Gb.

    The noise generated by this drive is very noticeable, although I’m not particularly bothered by it. The drive has a little blue light on the front that flashes depending on drive usage (similar to the hard drive lights on some older PCs). It rarely becomes warm to the touch, even without a cooling fan.

    A few months after I bought the Fantom Drive, I decided to upgrade the hard drive in my Macbook to a Samsung 840 Pro, a solid state drive. As part of this process, I split the Fantom Drive into two partitions: one with the time machine backup, and one with a copy of my hard drive. After installing the SSD, I started the computer using the Fantom Drive (as the Samsung had to be formatted). THE FANTOM DRIVE STARTED MY COMPUTER FASTER!!!!!! This drive managed to start my MBP almost a minute faster than the original hard drive, through the USB port! Amazing! The Samsung proved to be a success as well, and subsequent backups have been much faster.

    In the end, I would highly recommend this hard drive to anybody who has a computer, period. Backing up your information is important, and I would not entrust my sensitive information to anybody other than myself and this hard drive!

    solid non plastic drive that performs, January 18, 2013

    This is my 2nd FD drive. The drive runs cool and the USB3 is a big improvement over USB2. The case is nicely machined out of aluminum and has a blue LED in the front and it runs cool with no fan. No complaints, both FD drives have been reliable so far. I have friends with the other popular WD and Segate drives who have experienced failures, so the extra price was justified for me.
