5 out of 5 eggsLots of Space

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

Pros: Excellent Speed and Startup time. Never have noticed more than a second delay on accessing the drive and that could have been my own computer. I have 4 of these drives 2 bought summer 2013, 2 bought 2 months ago.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsso far OK but still worry!

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

Pros: Cheap and big - I moved literally 1000s of movies onto the drive. 2 year old Samsung 4000 TV cannot see it but no problem with 6300 purchased in January.
Very quiet drive, fast enough.

Cons: Worrisome bad review for Seagate and too much data in one place.

1 out of 5 eggsSTAY FAR AND AWAY FROM THESE DRIVES!!!

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

Pros: 4TB

Cons: These are the slowest External drives I have ever seen. Reported as USB 3.0, but slower than USB generation 1.

I purchased 10 of these for drive copies. I thought when I first stuck in the drive maybe I had a bad drive because it had write speeds of 3-7mb/s. ALL 10 drives are have write speeds between 0.3 - no more than 7mbs.

I have tried them on my Rocket 1144A USB adapter, Onboard, and front ports to no avail. I'm stuck with them. It takes 4 whole days to copy 4TB, while my previous WD did it in 8hrs, 2 at a time.

I thought I had a good deal, but I was WRONG!

STAY AWAY

5 out of 5 eggsEXCELLENT Seagate warranty completes the system

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

Pros: Cheap, works.
Warranty is just as much part of performance as anything else.
In my experience, Seagate treats their warranty as a opportunity to support the customer--a long term sales tool.

Cons: Bought 4; one arrived flaky per SMART. But never lost any data.

Other Thoughts: Assume all HDDs will eventually fail and take measures to deal with that. SMART, weekly emails, backups, parity, and warranty support are all part of the design.

I bought cheap drives on the assumption that they would either fail in the first few weeks or last for a couple years. If they fail in the first year, warranty replace and rebuild the array.
So, the test came early and Seagate held up their end.

The drive never actually failed; just that SMART complained about some issues--which is exactly when you replace things--before they fail!!

Seagate held up their end, so I will continue to buy Seagate.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to set up, wonderful to use

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

Pros: Works great right out of the box, very quiet, easy to set up, 4tb at this price (you can't beat that), etc, etc, etc, just a great piece of gear from one of the only two HDD manufactures I trust, and is really small and compact for an HDD of this size

Cons: the lack of any type of cooling system on this unit worries me slightly

Other Thoughts: i set this up as my "network cloud" drive, plugged it directly into my router, and it has thus far worked flawlessly, mine is still new, and I did read a few reviews from others talking about the life span of the unit, but I also checked out the WD version, and it was roughly the same, and those are the only two traditional HDD manufactures I will ever buy from, too many issues and fails from anyone else.

So far, I am exceptionally happy with my purchase, and I don't really expect that to change. I find it very easy to recommend this product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat backup device

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

Pros: Very good drive, I have two and use them for backup and for storage of virtual machines. They are very fast drives and not loud. The run at a moderate temperature and the lights are not annoyingly bright.

Cons: Only a minor gripe, it take a little bit to be recognized if you have to move it. It is just long enough to make you think it is not working.

Other Thoughts: The included USB 3 cables are a nice touch and a decently long enough.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, not quite so good...

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

Pros: they were recognized by my ancient computer.
They support SMART monitoring and tell the NAS software what's up.

But...

Cons: Turned on SMART monitoring, weekly checks, email messages, and regular scrubs.

Deleted 1 egg because one of the drives is reproting it's not healthy. I just spent almost $600.00 on four of these; I'd hope they last for more than a few weeks!!

Other Thoughts: Last email from the NAS shows 2 SMART errors

Error 2 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 446 hours (18 days + 14 hours)
...
Error: UNC at LBA = 0x0fffffff = 268435455

Error 1 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 446 hours (18 days + 14 hours)
...
Error: UNC at LBA = 0x0fffffff = 268435455

Running a long test today to see if the errors persist or it was just something at powerup. I doubt the latter, though.

Seems like the disk should last for more than a couple weeks before it starts to fail!!

4 out of 5 eggsOOPS - correction (4.5 eggs)

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

Pros: as stated previously. So far so good, much better performance than 2TB version

Cons: as stated previously. None so far - keeping my fingers crossed.

Other Thoughts: The 3 TB Seagate USB 2 reported with previous review was purchased in 2011 not 2008. apologies

4 out of 5 eggsOK at 2 weeks - call it 4.5 eggs

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

Pros: Pleased with speed, silence, and lack of vibration or heat. Much faster than its "twin" 2TB drive sitting beside it.

Cons: So far so good - keeping my fingers crossed.

Other Thoughts: A 3 TB Seagate (USB 2) external purchased in 2008 is still working well used only periodically for backups. Hope this new one does as well. Backed up thousands of MPG and AVI from an internal (SATA 2) Hitachi 3TB to the Seagate 4 TB external at 58-61 MB/sec - 13+ hours continuous - and drive did not hiccup or get hot. Perhaps the plastic case prevented me feeling drive temperature.
