1 out of 5 eggs Failed after 11 months 04/07/2014

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100 Black


Large capacity storage
Decent transfer rates with USB 3
Cheaper solution


Runs HOT
One year warranty
Short lifespan
Seagate's convoluted warranty process and replacements are refurbished

Other Thoughts:

Avoid the 3 Tb version. They are absolute junk.

I bought this drive at a local retailer. It failed at the 11 month mark, so it was just under warranty. Afterwards I did some research on this drive and read more reviews. The 3Tb versions of this drive are notorious for crapping out prematurely, because they run so hot. Apparently the 1 and 2 Tb versions are slightly better. So the replacement I have is now a redundant 3rd level backup because I don't trust it. I only plug it in once a week to do backups, because leaving it plugged in, even without transferring data, it will idle hot.

Good luck navigating the warranty process, if you are among the lucky? to at least have your drive fail b4 the one year warranty.
