        Comments about Fantom 2TB GreenDrive3 USB 3.0 External Hard Drive:

        Truly plug and play, I unpacked it hooked it up and turned it on, and both my XP machines recognized it instantly. Got this because I ran out of room on my 250GB Fantom I bought 4 years ago, so I should be good now for a while. This one has a nice, soft LED activity light you can see through the grill, unlike the multicolored whatever it is on the old one that is like looking at a laser- believe me it is that annoying. This new one is also quieter for sure. Plus, I wanted the USB 3.0 for when I upgrade to new machines, ought to be a blast to transfer 10GB files in mere seconds. Only thing I'm worried about is reliability- never had a problem with the old Fantom, but then again I was only turning it on when I needed to write to it, which was occasionally, so it only has maybe 80 power cycles to it. But, if I use this one like that and it otherwise behaves then I guess I'm set! CAUTION: as with all plug-in devices MAKE SURE you dismount the drive before turning it off, at least in Windows environments. No need to confuse the thing. If you don't know what this is you need to look it up

            Very fast, you must purchase a PCI USB 3 card to get the best speed, but well worth the investment. So much faster than firewire for the same price.
