1 out of 5 eggsMassive dfata loss in less than 6 months.

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STDT3000100

Pros: It was on sale at the time I bought it.

Cons: I bought this drive less than 6 months ago. After buying the drive, I copied ~2.5TB of my data to it. I have not written to the drive since, and only read the data a few times a week. Yet still, this drive developed over 25% bad sectors in under a year with virtually no use. I will never buy another Seagate product again. Unless you intend to use a RAID configuration, I'd suggest you don't either.

Other Thoughts: There is no excuse for a drive with almost no usage failing in under a year. I have five Western Digital hard drives in this same computer that have no issues. Some of them are over 5 years old and have heavy daily use. My other 2TB Seagate drive makes disturbing clicking noises, so I'm expecting to lose it soon too.

Do yourself a favor and pay the extra few dollars for a different manufacturer. Your data is worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsBackup programs fail with 3TB drive

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STDT3000100

Pros: I have a professional bias toward using Seagate drives.

I have the 2TB version of this drive and will be ordering another 2TB version today. This Seagate drives ship with Seagate backup software that works with the 3TB drive.

Cons: This 3TB drive does not work for Windows 7 with:

1) Microsoft Backup (per my observation and web search)
2) Dell Backup and Recovery program (per Dell support)

Do not buy this drive for use with these backup programs. Dell support indicated that their program will be updated to work with the 3TB (and larger) drives.

Big ratings ding for failing to work with these programs, and for failing to make this limitation clear in the product description.

5 out of 5 eggsJust fine

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STDT3000100

Pros: Works just fine. Very heavy build and only made for lying flat, which I like. Software included works fine (see thoughts). Very quiet.

Cons: None that I can't deal with. It does take a sec or 2 to come on, but not slow by any means.

Other Thoughts: I normally don't use the software on these, but its for a vista machine and did not like the options vista offered so used this. I liked the options it offered, but not necessary to use it if you prefer not to.
