I bought this drive to consolidate my movie collection (Blu Ray .mkv rips) that have resided on my in a 2TB drive for some time. I needed more space and this was the best solution for the money. Much like other reviewers experiences, I'm in love. Copying 2TBs of movies took a long time even using the included USB 3.0 cable (the average speed was around 140MB/S according to Windows 7 transfer screen). Despite this, the unit only barely became warm to the touch. I was impressed. Since then, I've created, expended and deleted partitions added and deleted movies and it takes everything that I do to it without a single hiccup! It is well constructed and weighty, but not so heavy as to be inconvenient for easy portability. It isn't the size of the WD 2TB drive that I was considering, but given the size and extra space, its worth the price. There is one one blue led that serves as both the power and HDD activity light. I have mine sitting horizontally, though in the photos here, it sits in a cradle vertically. The unit comes well packaged and with all the necessary power cables. If there were any "con" that I can think of it would be that periodically it spins up appropos of nothing, but it makes literally ZERO noise 99% of the time; also like most drives it is NOT completely 3TBs but reads 2.75 in Partition Magic. Nevertheless, I plugged the USB cable to my PC and then turned on the power and my PC (Windows 7 64bit) instantly recognized it, installed the drivers and it just worked flawlessly within about a minute. I'm so please with it, I'm going to buy another one, but this time I'm getting the 4TB version. You want this drive and you need this drive, don't hesitate on buying it. You won't be disappointed.

This is my first time buying an external hard drive but i have seen all my friends buy drives from different companies such as sea-gate and western digital. I have got to say this one blows all of those out of the water! this drive is quiet and with USB 3.0 all my data transfers fast, i can play blue ray movies off of it and onto my computer flawlessly and that's just with USB 2.0. I haven't experienced any over heating at all and i use this drive constantly, because i play my movies that i keep back up copies of. It's very stylish and the brushed metal looks great. this hard drive doesn't turn off randomly like I've seen with other drives. When the drive is on there is only one small blue light that blinks on the front of it and it's not too bright or annoying at all, it just makes the appeal look that much better. the price is also a great deal at $100 for 2TB. IF this drive happens to fail on me in the near future i will come back and change my review, but so far so good.

FYI: ALL USB 3.0 is backwards compatible so it will work with USB 2.0 WITHOUT having to buy any other cables.

***Update*** 6/14/2015 - after a year and a half the drive is still working great. No issues at all with the drive so I think I am in the clear.

Got this drive delivered on a Sunday by AmazonPrime. Wasn't home to see who dropped it off, maybe a local Warehouse employee...

So far this drive is impressive. It connected to my computer within seconds. If you watch the video you will see it backing up my photos pretty quickly through the 3.0 USB port.

It is super quite. It is backing up as I type and my Desktop is louder then this thing.

It is compact. About the size of a VHS tape. If you don't know what that is that means I am getting old. If I had one of my Dad's 8 tracks around I would have used that ;)

It comes in a hard metal case which is pretty cool. It adds some heft to this little drive. It also makes me think it is durable. I think that also raises the price point above other drives in it's category.

I will update this review in a couple of months to let you know if the drive is still doing well. So far I like it. A good buy.

I purchased this for external storage for my Xbox One. Works great, easy to hook up. If you are looking at a drive for external storage I would recommend this one.

The drive is great. Great size. Enough to save everything I have ever created.
Only one drawback, the USB connection cord is flimsy at best. I had to replace it with another cord from a Maxtor USB drive. Since then everything works great.

I bought it to replace another backup drive with a fan going bad. I transferred a 400 GB file and the drive was barely warm to touch. The transfer rate was 22 MB/s, which is what I have found for other USB 2 drives. It came formatted as NTFS as promised. The USB 3 cable provided fits any USB port. There was a readme file on the disk, but no preloaded 'free' software that needed to be deleted. It spins up from idle in about 5 seconds. It is simply a naked 3 TB expansion disk. To me, the solid construction and lack of a fan to make noise (and possibly to fail) makes it worth the few dollars more than other 3 TB drives. Reviews of other Fantom G Force drives indicate the 3 TB drive should have high reliability. The USB 3 feature is available if I upgrade my computer.
