Pros: Large capacity, fast transfers

Cons: Failed after backing up 1TB of data. Always disconnected properly, just failed in the middle of backing up data. Seagate 4TB drive in samsung case. Beware, do not buy and waste money on RMA return shipping.

1 out of 5 eggsWanted to Love it

Pros: Nice case to put a QUALITY hard drive in...

Cons: Everything but the case. The first drive failed in less than 2 weeks, the second unit that I received from Seagate could be used for a massage chair it vibrated so bad. There was also a loose screw in the case with the REFURBISHED hard drive. If this drive was a refurbished unit I hate to see what a bad unit looks like.

Other Thoughts: I was extremely disappointed with this unit.Seagate used to be a premier HD manufacturer, NOT so much now. I took the enclosure apart and replaced the drive with a new Western Digital Black HD. Now this thing works as it should!!!

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It has a very nice design

Cons: Does not last very long

Other Thoughts: About 3 months after purchase the device started to have a few problems, at first it was not that big of a deal, I was unable to exchange it since it was out of warranty. It has now completely crashed and I need to get a new external drive.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks flawlessly

Pros: I have owned this device for over a year. I was able to transfer all of me media files onto this drive!

Cons: Has external power. Cant get around that with the large capacity. I knew this when i purchased the drive.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this for full price wish i would have been able to get it for the price it is currently listed at. :P

5 out of 5 eggsWorks flawlessly

Pros: This is a huge drive! I was able to back up all media files that I had wandering around my house and put them into one place!

I bought this drive for a media PC that I have hooked up to my TV. I have used this now for over a year and it works really well.

I thought about turning that computer into a server for the whole house and the size of this drive would surely help out!

Cons: Needs external power. I knew this when I purchased it. Cant get around that for this kind of capacity.

Other Thoughts: Overall really happy with this drive.

4 out of 5 eggsLarge Capacity, low cost per TB

Pros: Large capacity, low cost per TB. I have the 5 TB model.

With promo the price was $25 per TB. Lowest price per TB I've ever seen.

Speed seems to be okay when connected to a USB3 port, though I didn't time it when I transferred files.

Cons: The enclosure quality is average for OEM external drives, meaning not very good, but serviceable. If you want a better enclosure that dissipates heat more efficiently, get an aftermarket enclosure that is specifically stated to work with GPT drives over 2 TB..

Or bust it out and use it internally. If you do, and depending on your mobo and SATA controller, you may have to make MBR partitions of 2 TB or smaller instead of one GPT partition. Just saying, it depends on what mobo/SATA controller you have. It's my understanding that the big manufacturers of externals (and Seagate for sure) improve compatibility by having the enclosure's controller report a GPT partition/drive (4k sectors) as MBR (which normally has 512 byte sectors). So no worries if using the drive in its OEM enclosure.

Okay, here's an annoying thing: The operating temperature is stated to be 5C to 40C. Come on now, all my internals have hit at least 45C by the end of a large file transfer, and that is in a big well-ventilated ATX case with 3 120mm fans. Most manufacturers give the thresholds as 5C to 55C. You wouldn't want to see that all the time of course, as statistically, it will increase the failure rate.

So what's with that 40C upper temperature threshold? Are they leaving themselves a pretext for turning down warranty claims? Any program that can read the SMART data will tell you the max temp a drive has operated at.

I did a 2 TB file(s) transfer and the reported temperature reached 52C, about what I'd expect with an OEM enclosure well into a file write lasting a couple of hours.

Other Thoughts: One reviewer states it won't work with Vista, Win7/8. Nonsense. Though there have been reports about file corruption during transfer on Win7 x64 specifically. Mind you, that's only anecdotal, AFAIK. I've never seen that myself, and I'm running Win7 x64.

Another reviewer states there's a Seagate drive in the enclosure. That doesn't surprise me, but I haven't opened the enclosure to verify.

I can't comment on the pre-loaded software, as the first thing I did was format the drive to get rid of it. I'll handle my backups, but thanks anyway.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed right out of the box

Pros: I bought this from NewEgg's auction store. It was a GREAT for this 4TB unit. NewEgg's fast shipping and handling has always been superb.

Cons: Where to begin. 1) The outer casing was a very flimsy either plastic or rubber not sure of the material it was made from. After getting it connected up to my computer, my computer started having issues with this thing. On the initial power up my pc did see it. But, when I started trying to pull the software and instruction manual off to my local C: my pc kept going into a not responding state where I would have to force a shut down. I then tried copy files from my 1TB drive to this unit and the samething. Not responding and a hard power down.

Other Thoughts: I am know putting the blame on NewEgg with this issue. And I don't know were to put the blame. I have had Samsung products and Seagate products and never had issues with any of them. I am seeing a lot of other posts throughout the internet where this units are dying within a 6 month time.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Works great, Just as expected for an external drive. Haven't run into any issues so far.

Cons: Sometimes, it takes it a few seconds to wake up after being inactive for a while. It is connected via usb 2.0 right now, though, so that might affect it, too.
