  Caveat Emptor: The ,  2010-11-17
By Mac_Advisor

I bought this drive at the beginning of August and I’m ready to sell it. Why? What’s the problem? Not the price, which was great.

The issue I have with this drive is its so-called "Green" aspect. I’m a "green" guy, so of course the idea of an environmentally responsible product appealed to me.

If you’re thinking about buying this drive, and it is an attractive offer, please note that "Green" means that the drive CONSTANTLY CYCLES OFF. What does that mean? It means that when you want to access (open up) a file from the drive or write to it (save a file), there is a DELAY of more than several seconds for the drive to spin back up and become "live" again. If you don’t think that’s a big deal, just wait and see. Your patience will be tested and then some. I don’t really get how this characteristic makes the drive "Green." I mean, it’s still plugged into the A/C outlet and the power switch is turned on.

Despite this major annoyance and inconvenience, I filled up the drive pretty quickly, so I went back to buy another external hard drive. My choice? The stylish black LaCie (Samsung) drive that works exactly the way I want it to, and I am very happy with that one. I would buy another one of those. Not so with the Micronet Fantom, though, unfortunately.
