Pros: Price, USB3

Cons: Indeed!

Other Thoughts: ...after three months. Had to void the warranty so I could retrieve my files on the HD inside the case. You know the rest of the story.

2 out of 5 eggsSeagate Expansion 1TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive

Pros: Price was reasonable.

Cons: VERY SLOW!! If you don't have USB 3.0. I'm spending to install 3.0 in my computer, & hopefully that will work. The drive cuts out when trying to watch video from it. Very agrivating!! I'm hoping I'll be able to transfer my files without the harddrive dying.

Other Thoughts: No matter how good the price, if I'm unable to use this in a USB 2.0, it's a waste of time & money.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive failed within a week of use

Pros: USB 3.0, Inexpensive, Plug & Play

Cons: The drive failed within a week, sent it back and went with a more cost effective solution for a scripted backup.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to script an automatic backup over the network, but the drive failed. Ended up going with a 32GB thumb drive for under $20.

4 out of 5 eggsBig, but good product

Pros: USB 3.0 is noticeably faster, which is really nice. Having an extra TB is really nice, and I have never had problems with seagate products, don't expect to have any here.

Cons: If it weren't so big and did not require it's own power source, I would have given it 5 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsNice External Drive...

Pros: Plug in, drag and drop external hard drive with large amount of space to back up files. USB 3.0 very fast transfer rates compared to 2.0 of other drives. Side note: Shipping was very fast... received in actual 2 days.

Cons: None.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works fine when it works.

Cons: First unit took c. 3 hours to back up my system, then failed after 6 weeks. Second unit fine so far, and takes <1/2 hour, so first must have been bad from the start.

Other Thoughts: Seagate RMA was painless.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -USB 3.0?! Impossible! =D
-Fast transfer rate even on a USB 2.0
-LOTS OF SPACE[I only took up about 60GB haha

Cons: -I saw some negative review but took a leap and it wasn't a bad leap. Seagate, you did good to me. This drive is awesome!

-Be careful when you plug in the rear power input, it's smooth so it may[and I strongly mean may] slide out a bit of course not powering the unit. But it's fully snug when pushed in.[anyone with common sense knows that though....I hope]

Other Thoughts: Had my doubts based on reviews, but this is worth it. Hasn't crashed on me or anything yet. Love this powerhouse of data, keeps all my music files[I'm a solo artist] safe just in case something happens. Thanks Seagate, and to any positive reviewers.
