5 out of 5 eggsFor use on my Xbox One

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: My Xbox One immediately recognized this device and offered to format it. I effectively had 3.63TB of space available after the format. I have 20+ games installed and DLC's and I'm using right at 11%.

Cons: None to speak of at this current time.

Other Thoughts: It arrived within 3-4 days using the free eggsaver shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: Great price, workis flawlessly, large capacity, and outstanding speed. Paired with my ASUS Sabretooth motherboard and using its USB 3.0 boost tools this thing is really fast. Moving from an SSD drive the transfer speeds are between 270MBS, and 140MBS depending on what size files were being transferred. I run Virtual machines using VMWare viewer off this drive with no performance problems. It is definitely faster than my 3GB Western Digital My Book, tested moving the same files.
Easy to install, just plug it in. I did not have any issues getting it to run at USB 3.0 speeds. I think people are having issues with their computers, or may not be using the cable supplied with the device. Some of the early USB 3.0 hardware and drivers can be real buggy. My old ASUS lap top has been a great machine, has USB 3.0, but never gave me the performance I see on my desktop, or my kids new lap tops. The first thing I would do make sure you are running the latest Mother Board drivers and firmware.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsI'm pretty much satisfied

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: This was for my Xbox One. I plugged in the USB from the HDD to the XB1, then plugged in the power, then I turned on my Xbox, gave it about a minute, and a window popped up asking me if I wanted to format for games and apps. Did so, moved about 7 games and the Halo 5 beta onto it, in total it took less than 2 hours. Basically, setup was easy, Still works great and zero issues.

Cons: No cons. It is stellar. If I had to nitpick, I guess you chould say it'd be great if it had a fan to cool the HDD, but it never really gets that hot anyway even while communicating with it. Outside of the device, the warranty could have at least been for more than a year, but it's okay because if Newegg wants to offer me a better warranty ($20 for 3 years replacement warranty) I will take it.

Other Thoughts: For those looking to upgrade their Xbox One storage space, I highly recommend this HDD. I've been using Seagate for a long time, and before that, Maxtor which they eventually bought out. Once again, Seagate delivers another hard drive that works great and functions well. I forget what number this is, but I've purchased a lot of Seagate drives in my life and rarely ever encountered issues.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY!

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: It looks nice

Cons: It does not work for 3.0 USB and only works for 2.0 USB which completely sucks when the laptop I have only has 3.0 USB ports. I am completely disappointed in this product.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product; warranty two weeks short

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: These are good cheap hard drives, and you get what you pay for. Eight of these have been running without a hiccup in a couple of NASs for around a year. I trust these well enough to buy another set of them as the data continues to expand.

Cons: All are missing a couple of weeks from their warranty:
Seagate responds for each serial number
"In WarrantyExpiration 22-Dec-2015"

Label on the case pack with the same serial numbers inside as outside shows these were sold to "Ingram Micro" at 3802 Micro Drive Millington, TN, 38053 on 9/19/2014. ???

In any case, only knocking off 1 egg for the shorted warranty. In my experience, Seagate has awesome warranty support, but it'd be a little much to ask any vendor to honor an expired warranty.

Other Thoughts: S.M.A.R.T. monitoring and weekly checks--if anything shows up in the warranty period, send it back immediately.

Suggest anybody using ANY hdd expect them to fail and take measures to mitigate. Of course raid, backups, etc. are always a good idea.

5 out of 5 eggsNice job newegg^^

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: For a USB drive the results were surprisingly good for me ( tested with HD tine pro ):
Average transfer rate: 108.5 mb/s
Access time: 15.7 ms
Average temp: 43 C
( while watching a movie from that drive so yours may end up a lil higher )
Delivery was within a couple days, but I newegg always delivers.
It is very quiet ( as in, I can't hear it ).
Delivery was within a couple days, but newegg always delivers.

Cons: Nothing thus far really.

Other Thoughts: Gotten during black friday; I am not sure if I had gotten it at the original price (169.99), but at $120, it was a good choice.

4 out of 5 eggsgood drive good price but...

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: good plug and play drive
read write speeds so far hitting above 100mb/s no issue.
great $ per TB value.
picked it up for 120 on sale.

Cons: power management is insensible for this drive.
if from pc side you enable usb powersave and drive shuts off to go to powersave state. this state has the drive spinning a low speed but enough to where there is an audible high pitch sound. quite annoying when other equipment is room isnt running.
-assuming this may impact drive integrity im pursuing a replacement, doubt im going to get anywhere.

Other Thoughts: due to this being a cheap drive i wouldnt be surprised if this is a commonality for these drives. for now unplugging the drive when everyting is turned off works, just a nuance.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, great price

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: I bought two of these on sale for $119 6 months ago. I pulled the drive out of the case and made them internal drives for $60 cheaper than you could find the same drive bare. They have been working flawlessly on my HTPC since, zero issues at all. Looking to buy a few more now. 100mb/sec transfer rates are pretty standard.

Cons: Get them out of the case and you have a cheap 4tb internal drive. Leave them in the case and they seem to get hot quick, which might kill longevity

Other Thoughts: As close as you can get for a reliable, fast 4tb drive nearing the $100 range.
