Questions and Answers

"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

Worked adequately for 2+ years, 2012-09-04
By Steve 
As someone else noted, the "Green" has to do with powering down the drive motor when not in use. This does save power, but there are a lot of events besides backup that cause it to have to power up (like putting up a new finder window, and many fil...

When my current 500GB drive was failing to save Time Machine backups, I scouted drives online in an anxious hurry to replace it. The FD GreenDrive’s memory-per-dollar ratio was exactly what I was looking for! When I received it, set up was a no-brai...

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 a...

Drive’s Fine, Rebate Program a Mess, 2009-11-13
By jrepp 
If I were reviewing the product alone, it would have received five stars (though I’ve only run four or five back-ups to date): My MacBook prompted me to reformat, which got accomplished without a hitch, and from then on, it’s been a matter of hook i...
