Can not get a hold of anybody at Seagate to help me 4/2/2020 8:51:27 PM

Pros: Great amount of storage for the price

Cons: My drive worked for the first 6 weeks I had it. Then one day I heard the click sound of hard drive death. I contacted Newegg about the issue, but since the product was over its 30 days I would have to go through Seagate for warranty issues. I have called Seagate 3 times and waited on hold for over an hour each time. I have never gotten to speak to anybody to help me with my situation

Overall Review: whats the point of a warranty if you cant use it

Lots of storage at a good price 3/25/2020 9:09:19 AM

Pros: 10TB is room for all of my ripped DVDs/Blu-Rays/CDs
USB 3.0 is fast enough for FHD playback (haven't tried 4k)
Had this for just a month but it's working fine

Cons: I'd love to get a 10TB NAS at this price for easy sharing

Overall Review: Overall good buy - compact, fast, lots of storage space and plug-n-play worked right away.

big capacity, affordable, extremely s-l-o-w 3/14/2020 9:24:19 AM

Pros: Huge capacity for low cost. Useful for archival storage.

Cons: Drive claims to be USB 3.0, but comes no where near the performance specs for USB 3. Tested throughput is barely faster than USB 1.1. Performance was so bad that I checked my computer USB port several times, to be certain that I was plugged into a USB 3 port.

Drive has no on/off switch, so you might want to put it on a switched power outlet.

Overall Review: Other than performance, I've had no problems with the drive. Other reviewers have had trouble with drive failure. Based on their complaints, I think it is wise to avoid all possibility of bumping the drive while it has power.

Hello Gregg,

We regret to hear about your experience with the Seagate Expansion 6 TB Desktop External Hard Drive. 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, the drive performance is slow.

The drive performance or file 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:

Nice upgrade from my old 4TB units 2/23/2020 8:51:00 AM

Pros: Good price for the capacity, provides nice headroom for my 4TB drives that were getting full.

Cons: It can take a LONG time to transfer data onto any large drive.

Overall Review: I have multiple Seagate Expansion Desk drives that I've been using for a long time, and some of them are getting too full. So I chose to upgrade a couple of my 4TB drives to these 6TB units. Other than the time it takes to do the transfer, it's going smoothly. I expect these 6TB drives to be reliable as has been my experience with Seagate drives in the past.

Good product but for how long? 2/5/2020 10:34:32 AM

Pros: Not so expansive

Cons: Always anxious to know that one day everything will stop working without warning

Overall Review: Good product but for how long?
With hard drives you never know when they will fail. Unless you pay a fortune for it.
In addition, many companies program their products to stop working after a certain time (planned obsolescence). This is not honest but it is the characteristic of the Capitalist: always make more money and whatever the means.
