    I've had a 200gb Fantom for a while now, and I haven't had any problems.

    I have an external 500 gb fantom. This is the old model that is doublewide. I use it to backup apple lossless music and files. It started having playback issues in Foobar, saying files could not be retrieved, either corrupt or moved. Then when I retry the files later they would sometimes work, if I turned the drive off for a few minutes. This is in a very well ventilated area. I read the writing on the wall and immediately bought an internal seagate to duplicate the files.
    I have had seagate in the past, and did not have this problem. I would pay an extra couple bucks and go with seagate, but that is just my biased opinon.;)
