      Comments about Fantom 2TB GreenDrive Quad Interface External Hard Drive:

      I use this external drive to store all my huge files from photos to film. I have it wired to my MAC via Firewire 800 and the response rate is very, very fast. This drive has connections for USB 2/3, Firewire 400/800 and eSATA and all wires are included. It has an on and off switch and constructed solid. There are no fans thus making it silent and it doesn't heat up. Very easy to set up, just plug and play. I purchased a 2TB (1.8+TB actual) and I am very happy with its performance!

      Con: when my computer sleeps, the drive doesn't go to sleep, or the operating light doesn't turn off. It may sleep but I can't tell since it is so quiet.

        We use the product to edit full HD video. We have purchased 3 to date.
        They work fantastic.
        The only reason we gave it 4 out of 5 is because sometimes it freezes up when you daisy chain more than one drive at a time.

            Comments about Fantom 2TB GreenDrive Quad Interface External Hard Drive:

            What a great drive! There was NO complication with this drive and it's compatibility with my iMac. I use the GreenDrive Quad Interface to store multiple files of pictures with zero difficulty.

            I'm extremely pleased with the number of wires the drive comes with in order to promote the possibility of daisy-chaining. I use the Firewire 400 cable, and the multiple out/in ports provide for dynamic use once I purchase more GreenDrives which is a decision far ahead of my needs at the moment.

            With that said, the 2TB is a significant amount of space and well worth the price of ownership.

            Look no further, this beauty of a drive, in its compact sleek design, is well worth the expense, you won't regret it. I would certainly recommend this product to a friend.

              I use this for video production work (After Effects and Final Cut) and I love it. I love that there is a on/off switch among the other great qualities. This is the second one I have used, I used an identical one for a production company and loved it so much I decided to purchase my own for personal projects. I HIGHLY recommend this hard drive.

                  I would recommend this for any computer, and for anyone with multimedia needs.

                              This is the third one of these drives I have purchased and am very happy with them. I use them to store video and photos and nearly always edit movies off of them. I generally connect them to my computer with firewire 800 and I haven't noticed any issues with speed while accessing data off of them and transferring files on and off of them is fast enough. I have only had these drives for 8 months, but so far they are very reliable.

                                    The drive arrived promptly in the mail and was a breeze to set up, it took two minutes from opening the box to starting my first back up. The drive isn't the fastest but you can't expect that at this price and I'm primarily using it for back up anyways. It didn't need any formatting to plug right into my mac and the two Firewire800 ports will useful for daisy chaining. I was impressed with multitude of connections and that the drive came with a USB 2.0, Firewire 800 and Firewire 400, and e-sata cords included. It runs quietly and the environmental benefit is just a bonus.
