4 out of 5 eggsGreat For Xbox One Addition Storage

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT4000100 (Black)

Pros: Good amount of Storage for the Price. Easy setup out of the box. Has it's own Power Supply. Very Quite while running.

Cons: I wish it had a better case with better cooling.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my Xbox One due to 500GB internal HDD not being enough to hold all my games. I was sitting at 99.4% used with only 9 retail titles with DLC and 15 Arcade games. This has been a great item with no complaints so far.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing and spacious for the price!

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT4000100 (Black)

Pros: Nice modern design. Well ventilated. 4TB and under $150 when I bought it. Read immediately and flawlessly on initial connect. (Running Windows 8.1) I am currently moving nearly a full TB of information in one shot as we speak and it has been taking it well. Grant it, time will tell on durability, but first impression is quite good indeed!

Cons: Unknown at this time.

Other Thoughts: The software included with this drive allows for cloud as well as pc back up and even android back up as well.

3 out of 5 eggsGood drive, poor software

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT4000100 (Black)

Pros: Great device for the cost (under $125), small and compact. Really fast, no connection problems.

Super fast technical support response via email. Seagate is very willing to work with you via email, which is great.

Cons: Seagate advertises this product to have a mobile backup program that would work with my Android/iPhone- I can't get it to work. I also can't get the PC backup software to work either. This seems to be typical with these manufacturers, they make a great device but the software is useless.

Technical support phone hours are from 8am-5pm, PST. This is horrible for someone who works 8am-5pm, PST.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line- great drive for the price if you can find it when its on a real sale. USB 3.0 works fantastic, no problems there. Seagate's software is junk.

1 out of 5 eggsDisconnects During Large File Transfers

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT4000100 (Black)

Pros: Large Capacity
USB 3

Cons: Randomly disconnects in Windows 8/8.1 on USB 3 connections when transferring large files.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this drive if you intend to use it for anything it was designed for.

I first used it to connect to a Lenovo ThinkPad T430 and pull some server backups from a NAS to this drive. I would see some great speeds of 112 MB/s. Then after about 10 minutes, the drive transfer speed would get to zero and lock up and then I would get an error message and I would hear the Windows notification for disconnecting a drive. This would be followed by a USB icon in the systray telling me that it was an unrecognized device. Most of the time I would have to reboot and go into device manager and uninstall and reinstall the USB storage device for this drive.

This problem lead to countless hours wasted and Lenovo replacing my entire motherboard.

I had 0 problems when connecting it to a USB 2.0 port on the laptop, as well as on a Windows 7 desktop.

Still thinking that it was a problem with this laptop and its USB 3 root hub, I connect it to a USB 2.0 port on a brand new Dell precision T5810 running Windows 8.1 and use it for a bit without a problem.

I realized after trying to transfer some large files to it that I was connected to a USB 2 port so I identify and connect it to a USB 3 port. Trying to transfer large files again and about 10 minutes in, the file transfer stalls and errors out again.Followed by the unrecognized device error.

What a waste of time and money. Off to find something that can actually transfer files with USB 3

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT4000100 (Black)

Pros: Very quiet, super fast USB3, small size.

Cons: The only con I can give this backup drive is the case. As some other noted, it's a rectangular box with sharp edges. If the case edges were slightly rounded it would be more attractive (if you need an attractive drive), and less annoying to handle.

Other Thoughts: Change the case guys and it would be perfect!
