1 out of 5 eggsBad drive

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100

Pros: Looks nice, easy to set up.

Cons: Does not work in USB 3.0 ports. Only USB 2.0

Started back up on Windows 7 Ult. Was moving way slower than 500GB worth of data should've moved. Let it run overnight and checked the next day to see that backup failed due to I/O error. Tried 2 more times w/same result (ensured no power options were set to turn off drives). Downloaded "Seatools" from Seagate's website to test drive and drive failed "Short Generic" test and "Long Generic" test wouldn't move past 00:00.

4 out of 5 eggsKeep'em running

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100

Pros: Purchased for data backup. Attached to Windows Server 2008 and works great. Using Syncrify on a schedule and everything is consistently backed up. Saved me from finger checking and deleting 2.5GB prime data (family photos... oh no!). Its been spinning since October 2013 on basement shelf, has a small 5VDC muffin fan sitting in front of it, probably not needed but I've done the same with another Hitachi 1TB drive and it's been spinning since June, 2010. Rating on this drive will be 5 eggs after five years of service.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you've had problems with any drive, consider drive temperature, the cooler the longer the life, basements and muffin fans do wonders for external HDD longevity.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Speeds

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100

Pros: -Sequential write speeds in excess of 150MBps for my drive, transfers even large movie files very quickly
-No issues with stability or difficulty getting drive to connect
-relatively quiet, even just under my desk the only thing that can be heard is the drive spinning up for the first time

Cons: -Sometimes takes a few seconds to spin up and allow for file access, but this is pretty normal for a HDD

5 out of 5 eggsOver one year later...

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100

Pros: Drive is fast. Faster than some of my internal drives. I'm sure there are other external drives faster, but I have been impressed with the speed of this on my USB 3.0 port. I also enjoy the look of the drive.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive since Jan 2014. It's been my backup lifeline. This is the first external drive I've had that could put up with the heat and use of constant backups. I have had no issues whatsoever. I have used this drive on my Ubuntu and Windows 7 systems.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Backup Drive

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100

Pros: -1.81TB of solid memory after formatting
-Purchased it at a good price ($80 for 2TB? Not bad!)
-Hasn't had any failure while being used nonstop for the past 7 months, has only been powered down maybe twice and I've yet to experience any sort of problem.
-Form factor is solid

Cons: -LED on unit is incredibly bright, had to cover it up so it doesn't illuminate my room at night.

Other Thoughts: Well worth it for under $100.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable So Far

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100

Pros: I've bought two of this drive so far. Both working flawlessly under heavy use. One is four or five months old now, the other about six weeks. Nothing to complain about, very good price.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsBe warned

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100

Pros: Does work quickly and is easily installed

Cons: This drive will NOT work with any version of windows backup prior to windows 8 as it does not support 512E it only has native 4k sector sizes. Kind of sucks that seagate touts compatibility on the box when it fails at one of the task many people buy a drive for. As another mentioned here at least WD provides a utility for making it backup compatible.

Other Thoughts: If I had been paying close attention I would have bought a WD drive instead.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it a lot

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV2000100

Pros: It works great, I like not having an external case with a hard drive in it. I have many hard drives and external cases. Since it is a big 2TB hard drive and cheep. I don't see a reason to have an external case and different hard drives to go in it. If I need another hard drive, I would just buy another one of these. It feel solid, It's smaller than most cases with a hard drive in it.

Cons: Have not found any problems with it.
