Very Reliable. Still Going After 3 Years of Heavy usage. 1/10/2019 6:43:18 PM

Pros: Large Capacity
USB 3.0 - Fast read/write for the its era.
A known brand
Great for backup storage.

Cons: Struggles to copy large amounts of smaller files.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this product to a friend. It has done me well. I feel for the guys who had negative remarks. I just didn't have many of those complaints. I'm here to purchase another of these because the one I own is getting slower to start with age. This is expected since it has been constantly running for over 3 years. I never disconnect it and it still functions great in my opinion. I hope to find one with USB 3.1 options.

Why did I buy a Seagate again? 12/14/2018 10:48:39 AM

Pros: Worked okay, when it worked at first.

Cons: Was fine at first, then recoverable errors started (uh-oh...), but is now completely crashed after moving over 2T of data from another back up drive to save space. All is lost.

Overall Review: I've had problems with Seagate drives before. In fact, they are the only brand that I've EVER had problems with. Should have learned my lesson, but oh well. And it's always the same - infant mortality issues, then complete crashes, after the drives are loaded up, which is the worst case scenario.

Perhaps Seagate's engineers can work on getting them to crash right away since they don't seem to be interested in getting them to not crash at all like all other vendors I use.

And to add insult to injury, I went to their site, and they of course have recovery software for their sub-par drives, but want to sell it to you for basically the price of a drive. No thanks.

Will NEVER buy Seagate again!!!

Quality problems 12/23/2017 9:10:44 AM

Pros: When it works the drive's speed and space were nice.

Cons: Quality is positively horrid. I was using this as a backup drive, only turning it on to mirror my primary drive every 2-3 months. and it has failed already. Probably has less than 1 week of actual use. Seagate's page is telling me the drive is out of warranty even though it's only 2 years old.

Overall Review: I will never buy another Seagate product.

Works Well.. At $20/tb I Can't Complain 11/1/2017 8:58:49 AM

Pros: It was so cheap.

6tb Storage for $120.

If you're not worried about the warranty, breaking the case open to get at the drive is pretty easy.

Before breaking the case open all of the extra usb inputs worked for me.

Cons: One small thing and this goes for all external drives, I wish you could open the case without having to break all those plastic things holding it together*. I bought this because of the price, I'll always prefer just a regular hard drive (no case). But, in the off chance I needed an external drive case it be nice to be able to reuse it.

I'll never understand why external drives are so much cheaper then just buying the drive.

That's it though, drive works fine.

*I know there are ways to break open the case without damaging it but it is such a pain. You have to hold down each of the 8 plastic tabs with guitar pics at the same time and then pry open the case with a Flathead screwdriver.

Overall Review: Would I recommend this to others? If they are only paying $120 for 6tb then yeah, absolutely!

For the most part a hard drive is a hard drive. There is no difference between this 6tb drive and my other WD 6tb drive. I did a speed test before writing this review and the speeds were almost exactly the same.

Haven't used the Cloud Storage but I'm going to go out on a limb and say it probably works fine.

4TB seagate backup external hard drive 9/29/2017 3:45:21 PM

Pros: Great product and price. I use this to backup my computer files for security of not losing files. Very easy to use.

Cons: Have not had any issues with seagate hard drives.

Overall Review: I would recommend this product. I would probably purchase this again. I prefer using 4TB instead of higher TB because I am afraid of the possibility of losing data and I would rather it be 4TB than higher TB. I use higher TB drives but backup on 4TB.

Simple backup drive or secondary storage 7/20/2017 10:09:04 AM

Pros: Plug and play with easy to use backup. Seagate Dashboard software has come a long way.

Runs quietly.

The case dissipates heat better than you might think.

Cons: A lot of negative reviews. How are people using this drive, i wonder?

Typical 2-year warranty. Longer would be better.

Overall Review: Some users have experienced disconnects or freezes. We used to get that problem with external drives when running Windows XP and Vista. We have NOT had any problems when using Win7, 8.1, or 10.

We've had one of the smaller 2.5-inch portable Seagate Backup Plus drives for several years, using it here, there, and everywhere to create backups or to offload data from different PCs. It has performed relaibly and seems robustly made. I wonder if these larger drives are, too?
