4 out of 5 eggsOverall NIC!

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: Very nice design, quiet, my 2TB FORMATTED drive is 2.2TB (a first time for me)! I like the multivoltage adapter with various plugs (great for when I travel). It is a Seagate product.

Cons: NO POWER SWITCH (really a Con), no power saving features, short USB 3.0 cable, bright front mounted white LED,.

Other Thoughts: I think this was a very good value and am greatly surprised by the formatted capacity! Will buy the 4TB model.

2 out of 5 eggsNot what you think

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: Samsung is a pretty good brand with high quality most of the times.

Cons: Would not of bought if known has a Seagate brand hard drive in it. Samsung drives seem to hold their ground pretty well when used in NAS storage units. So if you have grown to not prefer Seagate hard drives DO NOT BUY. They are nowhere as good or dependable as they used to be. Might as well get on board with Maxtor and Western Digatal as being junk. Hope someone will find this information useful.

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: Customer service tried

Cons: Doesn't work.
The original 3.0 USB cable did not work and the drive could not be recognized by my PC. Customer service did issue a new cable, that is the only positive thing that can be said about this drive.
The software conflicts with EVERYTHING. I am unable to complete a full backup of my PC. The backup will run to 97% then give an error message.
My Western Digital "My Book" external HD was able to write and save two folders with a total of 56Gb in less than 30 minutes.
Using the same 3.0 USB port, the Samsung has been running for an hour and a half with an estimated remaining time of more than 7 hours. All the while, the drive keeps popping up messages stating it cannot find this file or that, which are all the exact same files, in the same locations, that the WD copied two hours earlier.

2 out of 5 eggsAc Adapter was NOT in the box

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: NA

Cons: Box and Product page state that an AC Adapter is included, but there wasn't one in my "factory sealed" packaging. Past my Standard return policy with Newegg so I set up an RMA with Segate. New drive came in with again, NO AC Adapter in box.

5 out of 5 eggsNise Design

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: Nice look
speed is decent for an HDD
includes all the wall plugs for worldwide power options
actually pretty light wieght compared to the average HDD

Cons: short usb cable but it works
make sure it gets good air flow because it can get really hot if you dont

Other Thoughts: D3 Station works really well for what i need it for. i wouldnt put and operating system on it. but i use it as a backup drive and my main storage drive. my operating system is on an SSD and this works really well to save all my data that would fill up the smaller SSD.

3 out of 5 eggsSAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: the drive itself works well and has lasted about 2 years with no problems for backup storage.

Cons: i took one look at the sealed, black plastic case and removed the drive (warranty void). it was obvious that the drive would overheat with a plastic case and no ventilation, so i put the drive in a Rosewill external case with a built-in fan. problem solved. my Seagate and WD external 3.5 drives have vents, so i keep a table top fan that blows directly on the vents.

Other Thoughts: i don't understand Samsung's thinking on this case design. i would be amazed if it didn't fail with no ventilation. worked fine once i replaced the case.

using this drive is much more expensive when you have to replace the case though.

1 out of 5 eggsextremely slow drive!

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: It works!

Cons: This is slowest drive I have owned in recent years. It speed is comparable to drives from a decade ago.

Other Thoughts: I am using it as a back up for crashplan. I have additional backup disks so I can see the comparative speed. This disk is extremely slow with 90 Mbps transfer rate. That is bits not bytes.
