This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100 Black
Pros: Was: Price
Cons: Reliability: The drive was purchased 11/4/2012 7:09:23 PM
and started failing smartd on 02/22/14.
With one year warranty this is unacceptable- no RMA possible
Unfort. I have had too many Seagate drives failing and have for a while preferred any other brand: WD, Toshiba, Samsung
Pros: Windows 7 and Win XP install driver autom.
Cons: does not provide output: The scanner enters setup mode but then does not respond to any F1-F12 key command.
There is not output into an editor nor copy/paste buffer.
The unit seems useless
Contacted the company CE COMPASS 626-334-0100 which does not pick up, left voicemail. Their live chat is disabled, their contact web page can not be found - Is this a phony company ?

Pros: Good reviews, decent price & size
Other Thoughts: This is the 2nd SSD I purchased from newegg. I bought it for my wife's Mac Book Pro since she is an appplication hog and refuses to restart her laptop for any reason. I researched SSD ending up with this model due to reviews of barely any complications using it in the Mac Book. Installing it with just one screw driver (from a previous Apple repair I did guided by iFixit.com) was easy. I used Carbon Copy Cloner to copy the internal HDD to the USB attached SSD first, switched drives and so far everything works fine - but faster. I did not do speed test nor did I time boot up time. Sure it is better, more silent, cooler and it appears that battery life time is "slightly" higher.READ FULL REVIEW
