    Fantom GF3B4000U reviews

    4TB G-Force3 USB 3.1 Gen 1 External Hard Drive is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth installation flawless performance This is still a new install, but to date all has been going well. Simple hookup to Win7 computer copied (BU) approximately 3TB of data immediately after install and verified once completed. Set up for daily backup and there have no issues so far. It is virtually invisible (meaning no problems) and upon checking all data backed up is accessible. What more can you want for a BU drive?

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Drive Quality TBD. Bad Accessories So far the drive seems to be working just fine, although it does run hot and we all know what heat does to computer equipment. It's very quiet, and once I figured out a few issues it started working correctly (so far). The accessories have a lot to be desired. First, the rubber feet on the stand are shorter than the base itself, so it can't be used unless I replace them. The stand slips without rubber feet! Second, I spent the better part of 3 hours on line and sending emails to Fantom support trying to figure out why the drive kept coming and going off line, and not letting me transfer small files. I finally switched the USB cable and it worked. Cheap cable and useless stand - that's why I gave it 3 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid build and performance I use this product to backup a feature length documentary film project. It is fast with USB 3.0, and so far has functioned flawlessly. You are really paying for the enclosure, and its great build quality. It is quite, sturdy, great looking, and stands well on a desk. Also, its power switch is important to me. I don't like drives that don't have power switches. No cons at this time, functions as expected. Solidly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Hard Drive With Great Speed We purchased this hard drive as a backup solution. We needed to store some files in case our NAS and Server had some problems with their RAID arrays. This arrived promptly as most of our B&H purchases do. Setup was a snap. Plug it in turn it on and you are up and running. The hard drive speed is comparable to the internal 7200RPM in my computer, so no complaints there. The case is sleek and discreet looks very good on my desk. Definitely not an eyesore . I am very happy with my purchase so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far...still works. Other than windows 10 having some issues with this, it is all that is advertised. Win10 needed to reformat the drive..not too big of a deal. I have had this drive for about 2 problems so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can trust Fantom Drives Bought this to backup my 3TB G-Force. Fantom Drives are the way to go as far as price, performance, and reliability.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would think twice about buying this product again I purchased the product from B&H Photo and would rate them as 5* BUT, the Fantom 4TB device is another issue. The product cam preformatted from Fantom, but it gave the message of requiring the drive to be formatted. Problem that I have with Fantom, is they do not have a live technical support staff available, and you have to submit a ticket which gets responded to withing two days. Finally got the device formatted in an 8 hour session, and updated my bios to accept the Windows 10 use for this product. After I got through the formatting and software update process, the hard drive works great, but I cannot believe that a company like Fantom who desires to be one of the big-boys in the hard drive business like Seagate and Western Digital does not have a technical support department available to assist customers with product issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good drive I like that these drives are fanless (i.e., quiet) and are enclosed in an aluminum case (i.e., somewhat more rugged). I've been buying Fantom drives for years and they have proven to be reliable. This time I bought two, and oddly one of them came marked as a model GF3B4000U, which is what I purchased, but it also has an eSATA port in addition to the USB 3.0 port, making it a mismarked model GF3B4000EU. Having the eSATA port is fine with me, and in fact I can use it so I'm glad to have it, but it does make me wonder how such an error could have been made --was it a production reject at the factory that was reworked and released back into the production stream, just the wrong stream? The serial numbers for the two units I received are three numbers apart. A curiosity but I guess I'll never know the answer. Bottom line: I'm happy with these drives.
