1 out of 5 eggsBeware Defective Drive

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT3000100 (Black)

Pros: NONE!

Cons: DOA! Drive will light up and I can hear it making a noise but not seen by Windows 7. Phone support not available, E-Mail support, you leave your email and they may return and may charge you. Worthless drive will do nothing. Worthless Seagate! Worthless lack of support. Buy only if you want a !100 paper weight.

Other Thoughts: Seagate apparently makes a lot of drives. Many of them are not checked to make sure they are working before being sent to customers. No way to get any use out of this drive. I will NEVER buy ANYTHING from Seagate again! Don't waste your money!

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT3000100 (Black)

Pros: Worked for 2 years before it died suddenly

Cons: Thought 2 years was a short life.

Other Thoughts: I used this only for recording tv shows and movies. It wouldn't even be recognized on any of my pc's from the get go. No big deal. I keep it attached to the DVR. Every once in a while it would make a humming noise, but that happened long before it went out. One day, it died completely and wasn't recognized on the DVR as being plugged in. I will take it apart and see if I can salvage anything, but I am changing to WD.

1 out of 5 eggsLiteral garbage

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT3000100 (Black)

Pros: Works for temporary storage. Fast when it works

Cons: Never buy a Seagate hard drives. EVER! These are literal garbage. I bought 4 of these and ran them in a SnapRAID configuration, thinking since they were Seagate, at least one would die. Well, after 10 months, one died. I was able to recover my data using SnapRAID, spreading the dfata over free space in my other drives, but then, before I could replace the drive, ANOTHER failed. 3TB of data is WAY too much to be losing to horrible hardware, even if they do replace it.

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT3000100 (Black)

Pros: Space

Cons: Bad drive

Other Thoughts: Bought in Dec 2014, and did not use it until 11/22, 2015. The first time everything worked . Then this weekend when I connected to the PC, there is NO drive appearing on the windows 7's file explorer. I have tried many methods, and somehow the PC just does not recognize it anymore. The front light of Seagate external drive was on flash for every 10 seconds

1 out of 5 eggsNewEgg is 1/2 the culprit here

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT3000100 (Black)

Pros: Price and great sales pitch

Cons: These Seagate external drives have a proven history of not being compatible with Windows 7 backup processes, BIG TIME. New Egg has to be aware of this with all of the negative reviews and I cannot imagine the level of RMA's on these external HD's. They simply don't work. I am not going to spend hours trying to figure it out, i have tried to back up my computer 20 times now with both Seagate Software and clean formatted HD with Windows 7 Backup. the do not get past about 20% to 25 % and then just blow up. This should be listed clearly for everyone when they are looking to purchase these drives, NewEgg knows there is a problem, Seagate even states they know there is a problem with their 3TB and 4TB Backup HD's. Then why sell them? They are branded "Backup" and they don't backup the #1 OS in the world. That is about as stupid of a marketing, management and business model as I have ever seen. I am going to try and RMA this back, but reality is the HD probably works for use as an alternate HD, but i bought it for one reason BACKING UP WINDOWS. No where in the product listing, except for reviews and forums did either NewEgg or Seagate disclose these HD's don't work. You should both be ashamed and really question your integrity with this issue. Kind of like selling a new Windows 7 OS CD, when it won't load on any of the computers. Pretty crazy when you look at it that way. Very disappointed and very possibly will switch stores and for sure HD's.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Buy

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT3000100 (Black)

Pros: OneDrive free offer
Price

Cons: Doesn't back up a Windows 7 PC without a 3rd party program!

Other Thoughts: I purchased this for one purpose; An external drive to save my Windows 7 backup/restore image file. Doesn't work. Tried 10 times. Then I shifted to the Seagate Dashboard program and it also failed 6 times. I busted. Should have read the forums and discovered this has been an issue for years with Seagate. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone who doesn't already use a 3rd part backup program. Very bad deal.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive failed

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT3000100 (Black)

Pros: Purchased from Newegg at a good price, but didn't matter in the end, since the drive failed

Cons: After taking immaculate care of this drive, keeping it free from dust, it completely failed just past the 2-year anniversary of purchasing it. Lost some very important video files I was baking up to this drive.

Other Thoughts: This was the newest of my three external hard drives. The other two drives are WD and still working. I will not purchase another Seagate drive.

2 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT3000100 (Black)

Pros: Easy to get working. Just plug it in and you'll be pointlessly copying files to it no time!

Cons: I've had this drive for 7 months and it basically just died last week. When I try to access it from My Computer a dialog opens saying the drive is corrupted.

Other Thoughts: I'm sticking to Samsung (love my EVO SSD) and Western Digital from now.

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDT3000100 (Black)

Pros: LOTS OF SPACE
Seagate

Cons: One bad and I had to get it.

Other Thoughts: Seagate replaced the defective unit with another unit very quickly to their credit that makes it worthwhile. All they have to do is stand behind their product. Right? We just want stuff that works.
