Store, carry, and protect all of your data with the 8TB G-Force Quad USB 3.0/2.0, eSATA, FireWire 800/400 External Hard Drive from Fantom Drives. With a capacity of 8TB, it can be used for additional storage or for backing up your videos, photos, music, documents, and more. The G-Force Quad is compatible with Windows and Mac systems and connects to your system via a USB 3.0/2.0, eSATA, FireWire 800, or FireWire 400 interface. The USB 3.0 port is able to achieve data transfer rates of up to 5 Gb/s, while also being backwards compatible with USB 2.0 at rates up to 480 Mb/s. The eSATA port uses a SATA II revision at speeds up to 3 Gb/s, the FireWire 800 port transfers data at speeds up to 800 Mb/s, and the FireWire 400 port operates at up to 400 Mb/s.

The Fantom G-Force Quad operates using a quiet, fan-free design with an aluminum heatsink. It may be used as a bootable system drive, so long as the host hardware and operating system support booting from eSATA or USB. Using its FireWire ports, it is possible to daisy-chain this drive to other compatible drives.

The Fantom G-Force Quad is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. It comes pre-formatted HFS+ for Mac with an Apple Partition Map and will need to be reformatted as NTFS for use with Windows. Included with this drive is a 3.3' eSATA cable, two 3.3' FireWire 800 cables, one 3.3' FireWire 400 cable, one 3.3' USB 3.0 cable, a 110/220V universal power supply, and a power cord. The Fantom G-Force Quad is protected by a limited 1-year warranty.

USB 3.0, eSATA, and FireWire 400/800
USB 3.0, eSATA, and FireWire 400/800 interfaces give the Fantom G-Force multiple high-speed connection options as well as Windows and Mac compatibility. Its USB 3.0 interface is also backward compatible with legacy USB 2.0 hardware
Quiet Fan-Less Design
The G-Force Quad features a fan-less aluminum heat-sink designed for heat dissipation, which helps to keep the drive cool and quiet

    8TB G-Force Quad USB 3.1 Gen 1/2.0, eSATA, FireWire 800/400 External Hard Drive is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I bought this as a working drive for my mac book pro. I work with graphics and video so it quickly maxes out my laptop hard drive. This works perfectly for an external working drive. I store all my working files on it and edit directly to and from. I started out using the USB connections and have had no problems. This is the second Fantom drive I've bought. I like them both in working with video editing and storage. The other one I use to capture a live video feed directly to using e-sata. It works flawlessly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantom 8TB HD for Back up I use it to back up my photos archives, I like the FireWire 400 and 800 old technology but my Raid need these connections. My server is a MiniMac, having Thunderbolt and USB 3. The HD is less heavy than LaCie or other 8TB on shelves. It does not make any noise. I backed up 6TB over night on it and now the new back up wil be done in a fraction of the time. Easy to carry from home and office, I recommand that Fantom HD, safe, releiable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fast drive I plugged it into a USB 3.0 port and a similar drive into another USB 3.0 port and copied a file from one to the other at 80MB per sec (800mbps). Dont know if PC or other drive was limiting factor, but very happy. Very quiet. Can't hear it running. Great buy! No regrets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and reliable I only had this thing a couple of weeks but it is fast and working fine. �It is hard to find an external hard drive that still supports FireWire. �I have a 2013 iMac that I am using this for Time Machine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Drive I love this drive because it has so many different connections. �I can use it with my older machines and my new ones. �And I love the 8TB size.
