Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Good product; warranty two weeks short 01/11/2015

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: These are good cheap hard drives, and you get what you pay for. Eight of these have been running without a hiccup in a couple of NASs for around a year. I trust these well enough to buy another set of them as the data continues to expand.

Cons: All are missing a couple of weeks from their warranty:
Seagate responds for each serial number
"In WarrantyExpiration 22-Dec-2015"

Label on the case pack with the same serial numbers inside as outside shows these were sold to "Ingram Micro" at 3802 Micro Drive Millington, TN, 38053 on 9/19/2014. ???

In any case, only knocking off 1 egg for the shorted warranty. In my experience, Seagate has awesome warranty support, but it'd be a little much to ask any vendor to honor an expired warranty.

Other Thoughts: S.M.A.R.T. monitoring and weekly checks--if anything shows up in the warranty period, send it back immediately.

Suggest anybody using ANY hdd expect them to fail and take measures to mitigate. Of course raid, backups, etc. are always a good idea.

Logitech Wireless Touch k400 920-005878 White USB RF Wireless Slim Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs OK if it has all the pieces 08/17/2014

This review is from: Logitech Wireless Touch k400 920-005878 White USB RF Wireless Slim Keyboard

Pros: These Logitech K400s are decent wireless keyboards. For an HTPC they are a functional interface.

Cons: Arrived without the receiver

Other Thoughts: The return shipping costs about the same as the missing receiver, and...maybe on the next try the order gets completed? Smarter to be sure and just buy a receiver from another supplier.

All told paid around the same price a new one would have cost from newegg or the other supplier. So in the end I bought a refurb trying to save money; wound up paying the same as new.

It seems the appropriate response from a vendor would be to complete the partial order. Of course the best response to a customer placing an order would be to ship it out complete the first time ;).

SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Good HDDs; good warranty 06/10/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D401TDB Black

Pros: 3 year warranty for $129.99 on 4T HDD is excellent.
Seagate honors their warranty without dispute.

Cons: No real complaint about the product; just an observation that marketing people are very silly people. The USB3 in the case always goes on the excellent sale, but never the naked drive for such a cheap price. Just sell the naked drive for the cheap price and keep the adapter case. More money for everyone involved.

I have 8 adapter cases on my shelf; wasted value. But I have to keep them in case I need to put the drive back in for warranty!

Other Thoughts: These have a Seagate ST4000DM000 inside. NAS4free recognizes it as ST4000DM000-1F2168 .

Wait for them to go on sale for $130 or so, then buy them. about every 5 or 6 months you can find this price; of course as time goes on they get cheaper anyhow

These are consumer desktop grade HDDs. I've had 4 for 6 months and the other 4 just installed. None have failed. One showed SMART unrepairable; sent it back to Seagate and they gave me a new one, no problem at all.

Of course all HDDs WILL eventually fail over time; use SMART and when they start to go replace them before they die. Use RAIDZ2 or RAID6 depending on your OS and treat the warranty and a component of the fault-handling system. Your data you will be fine.

Seagate stands behind their product.
