Seagate Expansion 5TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Plug'n'play, formatted, well ventilated vs prior models, all cables included, quiet, low power, runs with disk utils. Basic GPT formatted drive, works well with Trucrypt. Used only on USB 2

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: 1/10 active drives in a farm all run via USB. Althougth 1 week run time is premature, its feel, sounds and runs like another drive that will last. I've had similar in my farm over 10 years old still running, no data losses. Will update review if otherwise.

5 out of 5 eggs Does the job 06/16/2015

This review is from: Metro Ed500 Foam Filters, 3pk

Pros: Hard to find, ease to make DIY, these small sponges fit the bottom of the powered Metro blower. Reusable and easy to clean, so can swap dirty for clean while dirty is cleaned and allowed to dry.

Cons: Price. I can make these for $1 but too lazy to find the right size

Other Thoughts: Working well for over 1 year

Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: No issues. 100% reliable plug and play and run with Truecrypt. Great for archive storage. Runs all free disk utilities and is an MBT drive. I use it only for USB 2. This one of 10 drives I have running as a storage farm.

Cons: some claims of early failure. Changing design shape seems arbitrary particularly placement of annunciator LED. Thus, not amenable to stacking vertically as LED in other models can be blocked from view.

Other Thoughts: One of 10 continuously operating drives, over 20 external USB drives in the farm all without failure since 2000.
