I'm sure "normal" people wouldn't find anything objectionable about the fan noise or the power usage. (I also turn off my other (USB) external drive, for the same reasons.
The drives have been working flawlessly since I bought it, and I don't have to think about it, everything just works.
UPDATE: seven years later, still fine. I just tried to add a 4TB drive to it, and it appears that it won't work. Let me know if you are able to get that working.
First, terrible product.
I bought this drive in August, and it failed 4 months later.
Second, awful customer service.
As though losing all your data isn't pain enough, I also have to deal with the customer service at MircoNet which is the worst I've experienced. I've spoken to 3 different agents at MicroNet since I bought the drive, and each of them has been rude and unhelpful. I've never experienced technical support staff so uniformly condescending and unwilling to provide information about their products.
Third, poor response time and product servicing.
After following instructions to fill out an RMA request on their website, I waited a day for their response, which to be clear is an email with mailing instructions on how and where to send products for repair. Because I have lost access to all my data, I thought I would just call the company and get mailing instructions over the phone. Instead, the agent told me I'd have to wait for an email from the RMA department. I was told: "All RMA requests are important." Actually, if a customer is taking the time to call you, their request is probably more urgent than customers who are happy waiting the 2 business days for you to return an email. Or here's an idea: post the mailing instructions on your website?!
My eSata port never worked. when I contacted Fantom tech support, the guys wouldn't even know that motherboards come with eSata ports. They kept telling me that I needed an eSata adapter which was not true. After I purchased the adapter, the drive wouldn't still work from the eSata port.
I have heard that the green version is much better but don't take it for granted either.
I would not buy Fantom drives ever. Now, I guess, I should have bought Seagate, Iomega or Western Digital.
I had to pay over $450 to recover the lost data or be sued by my two clients for losing their precious wedding videos. THANKS FANTOM!
