Died 2 months after 2 year warranty 2/20/2020 7:18:17 PM

Pros: Plenty of storage
worked good for xbox

Cons: Dead in 2 years.

Overall Review: Worked good to store my xbox games. Used maybe 3tb for game library. Stopped playing on the xbox for maybe a year. Then got a new OLED tv and put this to work again storing UHD content on it and it died within a week of use. Heard random beeping noise and track it down to this drive. Now it just spins up, beeps and stops spinning. Doesn't show up on pc, its died while transfering. Kinda weak drive imo, disappointed.

RIP March 2019 - January 2020 1/26/2020 9:24:57 PM

Pros: -None.

Cons: First one was DOA. Plugged in the power, and even the LED indicator did nothing. Newegg was great and sent a replacement at no cost.

After the first RMA, I only used this drive occasionally to backup finalized videos waiting for upload. During this time, I wrote files to this drive less than 10 times. Today the drive died, causing me to loose 100's of hours worth of work. This drive lasted from EXACTLY March 2019 to January 2020.

Overall Review: If there is one piece of computer hardware that CANNOT FAIL is your file storage. This one failed TWICE. Buy any other drive, because any drive on the market will be more reliable that this.

Hello Zbigniew,

We regret to hear about your experience with the Seagate Backup Plus Hub 8 TB USB 3.0 Hard Drives. We’re certainly sorry you’ve encountered this circumstance. However, we’re hoping to lend a helping hand and offer some assistance which may resolve the issue. From what we understand, you’re experiencing slow file transfer rate for the drive.

Transfer speeds can be affected and be directly impacted by various factors. For example, such factors include:
File type
Size of file
Port versions
Services enabled
Computer configurations
Programs running in the background

We mention these factors as a manner of suggesting the variables that can affect transfer speed. We would suggest you consider such factors and see what may be applicable. This can explain possible performance issues. To learn more and try a few tips, please visit the link below:

If the issue persists, please create a case with our technical support team, so we can further investigate and explore available options:

Good product 10/12/2019 2:56:14 PM

Pros: I have 4 of these in various sizes and all work quite well so far (unusual in my 25-year experiences with Seagate products!). I bought them because they were cheaper than the comparable Western Digital products, although that no longer appears to be the case.

Cons: Newegg really needs to get their act together, though, on these product pages: Seagate hasn't offered a 5-year warranty in years! The warranty on these drives, as stated on Seagate's own product page is 2 years. This correction is the sole reason I'm writing this review.

Overall Review: These appear to be a solid product and worth the investment.

Solid hardware for occaisonal backups 7/16/2019 1:06:55 PM

Pros: Seems to run quiet and cool when in use. Fast enough for my purposes. Seagate generally makes good stuff.

Cons: Not really

Overall Review: I have two of these 6 TB units and they have served me well. I only use these for occasional backups. I did not install the software.

All of my USB hard drives spend most of their time disconnected and powered off. I wouldn't ask any USB hard drive to run all the time. If your PC gets zapped by a power surge (or stolen, etc.) then you may also loose your external USB hard drive if it's connected. Please don't use a USB hard drive for constant duty primary storage without backing it up. I know several people who lost all their stuff because they relied on a "constant duty" USB hard drive as their primary storage.

If you need a full-time large storage device then you aren't looking for a backup device. You should buy a high quality internal drive and install it inside your PC. If you have an ultra small form factor PC, or a laptop, or one of those "all in one" PC's then adding another internal drive may not be an option. In that case you should probably invest in a really good NAS solution designed for constant duty instead of a USB hard drive. In all cases, backing up your data using a cloud service is a good idea also.

Must have space for our PS4 games 6/23/2019 4:37:47 PM

Pros: Easy set up. Lots of space for games. Decent size, sleek look. Fits right in with our consoles and devices.

Cons: Sometimes isn't recognized when jostled. Annoying to "hard press" the cord back in and hope it works. Hasn't failed us yet, but is a concern.

Overall Review: All backups kinda need their own back ups lol. But it's been working for us about a year so far and makes our console usage easier.
