Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100 Black
  • Drag and drop file saving right out of the box
  • Fast data transfer with USB 3.0 connectivity
  • 1 year manufacturer warranty


The drive is always spinning while computer is on, so there is no delay in accessing the drive. The drive is definitely faster with the USB 3.0 port then my old external drive. Drive is preformatted at Seagate. Temperature when working all day is warm but not hot. No errors in writing 2 TB of data when first set up.


There is no on-off switch. Drive does not go to sleep when not in use. The drive only shuts down when computer is turned off.

Other Thoughts:

As an external drive not accessed a lot, I would prefer that the drive go to sleep and use less power when not in use. Seagate lists 'Power Management' as a feature of this drive. That is a misleading ad in my opinion since the platters are always spinning.
