So the only issue you had with the Fantom was the documented slow remote issue?
How much you want for it?
Wait, where can I find this documented slow remote issue? Is that standard with the external drive? That was the only problem I had found. I tried googling for that issue when it first cropped up. I came across a video of someone showing how to build an external enclosure out of the box the WD AV-GP drive comes in. That guy was pretty adamant about using an AV drive which I took with a grain of salt, but when I found one for only $80 I figured that might have been the prob.
Anyway, thanks for all the replies-- where can I find out the slow remote issue-- I've found articles about folks complaining about it and others suggesting they get an external drive, but my remote has no problems at all on the internal drive-- just the fantom drive.
Oh-- I forgot to mention that I'm very leery of the original Hitachi in the FD enclosure. My daughter didn't like the blue led so she stuck a shirt over the whole drive. I discovered it about 10 hours later and removed it and the drive was *hot*. I know heat can lead to HDD probs, so that was another reason for me to want to switch to a new drive. I've been planning to stick the Hitachi in a computer and hope it lasts. When I swapped out the drive I simply disconnected the led.
