5 out of 5 eggs Great External Drive 04/20/2014

This review is from: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 3TB USB 3.0 Desk External Hard Drive STAC3000302

Pros:

I Liked the first one so well that I bought two more. These drives are being sold as FreeAgent GoFlex but they actually resemble the Backup Plus by the case design. The drive is fast reaching upwards of 150 MB/s over a HooToo usb 3 hub. I found a hint from a previous reviewer about Teracopy and have been using it with improved transfer speeds over MS file manager. The included Dashboard software is a great utility to manage the drives. It allows for custom power settings and led status lights for each drive. The use of the software for power management should greatly extend the useful life of the drive since it won't be spinning 24/7. Did I mention I bought three of these!

Cons:

Refurbished warranty of only 90 days.
