Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STDT4000100
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Disconnects During Large File Transfers 12/02/2014

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STDT4000100

Pros: Large Capacity

Cons: Randomly disconnects in Windows 8/8.1 on USB 3 connections when transferring large files.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this drive if you intend to use it for anything it was designed for.

I first used it to connect to a Lenovo ThinkPad T430 and pull some server backups from a NAS to this drive. I would see some great speeds of 112 MB/s. Then after about 10 minutes, the drive transfer speed would get to zero and lock up and then I would get an error message and I would hear the Windows notification for disconnecting a drive. This would be followed by a USB icon in the systray telling me that it was an unrecognized device. Most of the time I would have to reboot and go into device manager and uninstall and reinstall the USB storage device for this drive.

This problem lead to countless hours wasted and Lenovo replacing my entire motherboard.

I had 0 problems when connecting it to a USB 2.0 port on the laptop, as well as on a Windows 7 desktop.

Still thinking that it was a problem with this laptop and its USB 3 root hub, I connect it to a USB 2.0 port on a brand new Dell precision T5810 running Windows 8.1 and use it for a bit without a problem.

I realized after trying to transfer some large files to it that I was connected to a USB 2 port so I identify and connect it to a USB 3 port. Trying to transfer large files again and about 10 minutes in, the file transfer stalls and errors out again.Followed by the unrecognized device error.

What a waste of time and money. Off to find something that can actually transfer files with USB 3

Pros: This RAM works great in a Dell R710.

Cons: Depending on your configuration you may need to run it in Optomized mode. Not the fault of the RAM.

Other Thoughts: The only problem is that with this configuration and a single CPU, you have to switch/tell the BIOS to use Optimized mode.
